Philosophy

The Good As Gould Goalie School (GGS) believes in allowing goaltenders to develop and improve THEIR OWN STYLE of goaltending. We also believe that while each goaltender is unique in their technique, they all have a common need for tactical development, concentration, strength, flexibility and control of game situations. The school therefore strives to combine a broad development of all the goalies’ knowledge of the game with a focused enhancement of each goalie’s individual techniques. This goal is achieved by providing a balanced curriculum with of ice training, classroom instruction, on ice training and video analysis with the best teachers available. Structure

Each day the goalies will train off ice, practicing a number of drills aimed at physiological and psychological development.The classroom instruction will cover such topics as equipment, mental game preparation, game situation analysis and continuing self improvement. Goalies will also watch video tape of their previous day’s practice, to be analyzed by the instructors.The on ice sessions will be broken into six stations. Each station will have one instructor, 2 shooters and will cover essential skills such as v-saves, stack saves, glove & blocker saves, out of net play, rebound control, breakaways etc.Goalies will receive the highest quality instruction for a limited number of goalies. The low Student/Instructor ratio not only allows each goalie to practice more in a given time slot, but it also allows the instructors to get to know each goalie’s specific talents and needs.
