The AAA Elite Goalie Camp will be a high intensity camp to improve each goaltender’s knowledge and skill of the latest advanced goaltending techniques. The mental, physical, and emotional aspect of each “elite” level goaltender will be challenged. Each day will consist of (2) ice sessions coupled with classroom sessions; NHL goalie and game situation analysis, mental training, and off – ice training 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)
