Classroom Sessions

Classroom sessions will improve the mental and emotional part of each goaltender’s game.  Sessions include: NHL game situation and goalie analysis, game management strategies, mental visualization techniques, and nutritional/training needs.  There will also be discussions on the best avenues to advance through the hockey ranks.

 Edgework and Fundamental Save Session (AM)

Proper repetition will perfect technique to improve quickness and efficiency to build a highly mobile and fundamentally sound goaltender. This session will cover goalie specific movements as well as fundamental and advanced save techniques.

The following skills will be covered: movement; puck tracking; all of the variations of the butterfly and butterfly slide; moving while down, post seals, leans, rebound control, shifts, and handling the puck.

Several pieces of on-ice training equipment will be used: Mirrors, High Shot Screen Boards, Deflection Boards, mini, colored, and white pucks.

Game Situation Session  (PM)

This clinic will cover common situations that a goaltender will face in a game.   The following situations will be covered: rush plays, pass outs, plays around the net; bad angle shots, point/screen shots, lateral feeds, and breakaways. Rebound control will be emphasized for all situations. Shooters will shoot according to age and skill.

Video Technique Analysis

Students will learn how to refine the physical part of their game by reviewing their own video with the JSG coaching staff.

Off-Ice Conditioning

Designed to strengthen your physical and mental attributes. The latest age appropriate off-ice training methods will be used with an emphasis on goaltender specific training.  The following areas will be covered; dynamic warm-up, flexibility, core and leg strength, hand eye coordination; quick feet and agility drills.


Goaltenders’ will be filmed every day of camp.  We will take this video and add voiceover and drawing tools to provide feedback using “coaches eye” technology.  The critiqued video will then be emailed back to you each day.  Strengths and weaknesses will be identified while we provide tips on how to become a better goaltender.
