Janosz Goaltending

Bob Janosz brings over 30 years of experience as a player and coach.


Janosz Goaltending’s unique age and skill specific camps will develop each student’s mental, physical, and emotional skills in order to develop a balance of “blocking” and “reacting” saves. JSG has helped advance over 100 goalies to the Pro, NCAA, Major Jr, Jr. A/B, and Prep School ranks. Several JSG graduates have also been selected to the USA Hockey Select Festivals.

Scouting for USA hockey and coaching at the NHL/AHL/NCAA/OHL level gives Bob the insights to what scouts and coaches look for in a goaltender. The drills and coaching techniques used are designed to build a highly competitive, mobile, athletic, and fundamentally sound goaltender capable of advancing through the hockey ranks. JSG Camps have a ratio of 1 instructor per 2-3 goalies ensuring each goaltender gets enough reps and personalized attention. Shooters will shoot according to age and skill.

Coaching at the professional level lends Bob the advantage of staying current with the latest training techniques and goaltending trends, affording your son or daughter the best instruction available both on and off the ice. “Nobody cares about the success of their goaltenders more.”
