The Elite Hockey Training Center GOALTENDERS DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM is designed to maximize each goaltenders potential. Individualized training programs are developed for each goaltender based on age, experience and ability. The goaltenders program is offered during every camp session.
While each goaltender will participate in an individualized goalie program with specialized instructors, he/she will also refine game skills by participating in the afternoon and evening sessions.
On-ice goaltender training is designed to improve players agility, coordination, stance, technique and concentration. Emphasis is placed upon the proper technique for covering angles and the importance of correct position in the net. Skating speed and agility are improved through daily power skating instruction. The proper techniques of stretching are taught to increase the goaltenders flexibility and to prevent injury.
Dry land training for goaltenders includes drills to improve hand-eye and eye-foot coordination, as well as agility and speed.
On and off the ice, concentration and confidence are stressed as goaltending skills.
