Our Elite Programs are customized to advance and align skills necessary for effective execution of position specific demands in a game situation. Programming focuses on mastering control of all goalie specific movements, specific work on post integration while they get continued development in their puck handling abilities.
All goalies in high performance programs will learn and practice the following mastery skills.
Designed to support the competitive athlete. With hectic team practice and game schedules in mind, this R1 program provides goaltenders with the opportunity to train before school hours to help their time management and create a positive environment to succeed at both education and hockey development. In addition to on-ice development goalies will receive video analysis and boardroom sessions to understand their game visually. This overall support and mentorship will enhance game play and confidence for each R1 Goalie.
Our R1 Goaltending Spring Program is the initial stage for goaltenders before they begin their training in July and August. Goalies have a focused approach on re- establishing their vision for reading and tracking plays.
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 RGD Midseason Tune-up. This camp 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.
