TRAINING OPTIONS

  • Skating - crisp, clean, powerful, explosive, and efficient 

  • Stance - finding a balance between form and function

  • Save Selection - building a foundation of saves that the goaltender can revert back to when facing the shooter

  • Coordination - hand-eye, agility, athleticism, balance, and practice with a purpose

  • Mental Toughness - reading the play as it develops and knowing how to react; understanding that goals will go in, then learning from our mistakes; get motivated, not frustrated

  • Muscle Memory - with the increased speed of the game, goalies cannot think when making a save, it needs to be a natural and instant reaction; repetition produces muscle memory, so proper practice makes perfect performance.

On Ice

Lessons

Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned veteran, Coaches Matt and Mitch offer small group and private lessons for goalies of all ages and abilities.

Humans are visual learners.  With that in mind, all lessons are recorded and posted to our YouTube page so our students can go back and watch their lessons.  We also can stop the lesson and provide instant video feedback if needed.

We hold on ice lessons at the at the following locations

  • PNY Arena -               West Chester, PA

  • Elite Edge -         Malvern, PA

  • Aston IceWorks -     Aston, PA

  • Regency Ice Rink - Lancaster, PA

Off Ice 

Training

We offer various types of off ice training including hand/eye clinics, SenseArena and video review

Hand/eye clinics - throwing tennis balls against a wall is so 20th century.  We embrace new technology by using training aids like HecoStix, Vector balls, Switchedon Training app as well as various other training aids.

SenseArena - this virtual reality goalie training is next level stuff.  Check it out our sessions at Elite Edge!

Video review - whether it be your game, lesson or even NHL footage, we are visual learners and should use these available resources to improve our game!
