On-Ice Group Goalie Training Sessions
Squirts/U10 and Older
To help our goalies improve their skills, SAHA has again invested into the Goalie Development Program, led by Justin Johnson and his staff (Mega Goaltending). One aspect of our goalie program is on-ice goalie training sessions during our PDP (Player Development Program). MEGA will be at every PDP sessions. The clinics are progressive in terms that they build on each other throughout the year. In past years we conducted large group clinics. Those clinics have been replaced with in practice sessions. Each team will have four on ice sessions with a goalie coach during a regular practice. These sessions are designed to see and train goalies in real time situations. They are not interrupt practices. Look at team pages to find out dates and times.
