The Northern Hockey School is continuing to make goalie development a focus. In the aim of supporting each teams most important player we are running the Northern Hockey School: Goalie Academy. The Goalie Academy is designed by goalies, coached by goalies, for goalies. The Northern Hockey School teaches a style that will increase goalie efficiency between the pipes. Our goalies’ balance, patience, reaction and movement will be improved through high repetitions, one-on-one coaching, high quality shots and game simulations. It is in our philosophy to develop goalies with an undeniable work ethic and focus on building and maintaining a proper foundation.
It will be a 3 day program, covering education on pre-practice and game warm-up, co-ordination training, strength and conditioning, goalie specific stretching, as well as video sessions and of course on-ice coaching. Goalies will each receive an NHS Goalie jersey.
