Goalie Academy

The Goalie Academy is designed to improve each participant's technique, mobility, and positioning through a combination of small group work and targeted one-on-one instruction with our best Ottawa Senators Hockey Programs goaltending instructors.

Sessions will focus on all aspects of modern goaltending technique, including goalie power skating, puck handling, defending wraparounds, screen shots, deflections, breakways, positioning, recovery, and more. All classes are designed and led by our Head Goaltending Instructor and feature a ratio of one instructor to a maximum of three goaltenders in order to allow for instant error detection and correction and individualized feedback for each goalie.

The Goalie Academy ensures that students are given the opportunity to develop in a positive learning environment. Backed by our team of dedicated instructors, our program ensures that all goalies can improve regardless of age or experience level.

We believe that perfection and excellence comes through repetition and as such all subsequent sessions while following the same  outline and structure will focus on, with new drills and other small variations, the same core skills and techniques.
