ELITE DEVELOPMENT

Suitable for Highly Competitive Goalies

U-11, U-13, U-15, U-17

Once goalies have reached and entered the Elite Development program, we will bypass all the basic elements that should have been taken in the earlier stages of the Gold in the Net programming. Lessons will become theory based to gain strategical implementation of concepts into the goalie's game. We will continue to develop and harness explosive power, tracking, forward motion, control, and puck handling skills that will all enhance their overall game skills along with introducing daily Mental Training Lectures to enhance the goalie's overall productivity.
