Our Advanced Programs are built upon the execution of basic goalie techniques and to provide goalies with an understanding of adjustments they can make to enhance their individual games. These sessions are heavily focused on keeping the foundation they have built from the introduction stage while also introducing the understanding which movements to make in different situations.
All goalies in advanced programs will learn and practice the following mastery skills.
Ability to Recognize Proper Movement
Identifying the time to use:
Proper Recovery Skills
Cementing technique when recovering to feet out of the butterfly
Controlling slides from the butterfly slide
The goalie must be able to demonstrate a good body positioning to complete this key.
Reaction Saves with Hands
The goalie must be able to demonstrate the ability to make reactionary saves with their hands to complete this key.
Our Advanced Program provides goaltenders that opportunity to build their foundation. This program will have a focused approach on improving each goaltender's ability to achieve their angle, depth, and body position.
As the hockey season wears on, a goaltender’s focus naturally drifts as the intense training of the summertime gets further in the rear-view mirror. This is the perfect time for a RINK Goalie Development Mid-Season Tune-up. This program refreshes the goaltenders mind and muscle memory. Timed with the Christmas layoff, this provides goalies with an outstanding refresher course for the second half of the season.
These 3v3 sessions ran by the RINK Player Development side will give goalies an opportunity to see game like situations and give them an opportunity to try what they have been learning in their goalie specific training.
