Focused Training for Goalies
Goalie is the most difficult and important position on the ice, so why do so many coaches tell you to “Just get in there and stop the darn puck”. OK, truth be told, there’s not a hockey coach on the planet that says “darn”, but what do you expect us to write on our website? We think you get the idea.
Weekend Warriors provides you with an experienced, dedicated goalie coach to work on improving your game between the pipes, adding new skills as well as sharpening those you already have. Movement, positioning, puck handling, angles, various save types and the mental side of the game are all addressed within the context of your dominant style (stand-up, butterfly or combo).
We use video analysis to help you assess your strengths and weaknesses. You will see for yourself which elements of your game need the most work. You also get to take what you learn and incorporate it right away by facing shooters in both drills and game situations.
You will be able to ask specific questions, and get the coaching and feedback you need on your particular game.
Our goalies come back year after year. Our goalie coaches are constantly providing these WW vets as well as first time camp attendees with new tools for the goalie toolbox, in addition to finding new ways to use video to analyze the technique, movement and positioning of our goalies.
Here is what some of our goalie alumni have had to say about our program:
“Jimmy is a great goalie coach. I always learn so much from him. He is like a magician showing you the tricks of the trade. I will definitely be back again next year!” – Steve V. – Goalie
“You drilled me into the ground and then took my game to a level that I wasn’t expecting. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.” – Samuel W. – Goalie
“Coach Jim was nothing short of amazing. He had a great rapport with all of us, encouraged us, explained things clearly, corrected our errors, and was all around an excellent teacher. He just has the perfect personality for working with people, and I really appreciated his sense of humor and love of the position and the game.” – Victor S. – Ann Arbor, MI
“I learned a tremendous amount about hockey in general and my position (goalie) in particular. The coaches were friendly and knowledgeable. I came away a better goalie.”
David B. – Birmingham, AL
“Jim was a great goalie coach – patient, supportive, protective of my ego…I hope I get to work with him again sometime and show off the progress I think I will be making now that I have all of these new tools in my goalie “toolbox”! “
Jess P. – Juneau, AK
“Jimmy is an amazing with the goalies. He did a great job helping me build on the skills and tools he gave me last year.” – Samantha P.
