The NUMBER ONE COMPLAINT of Goaltenders & Goalie Parents is that Coaches DO NOT Understand How To Work With Goaltenders

We have heard this consistantly for nearly 30 years and it is embarassing that HC has not reacted properly.

This is YOUR Chance to CHANGE THIS!

This is the program HOCKEY CANADA has failed to provide and should be mandatory for every coaching Certification level in Canada.

We GUARANTEE your WHOLE TEAM Will Benefit

Created and presented by Chris Dyson, President of Puckstoppers and Author of the internationally recognized book: Target Practice, 8 Mistakes That Ruin A Love Of The Game, this seminar is an absolute must for any minor hockey coach or goalie parent.

Look what those in the game are saying about Chris, his book and the knowledge he will be presenting at the course.

Chris provides what is missing from coaching programs and this is why this book is so important. Much of the information that is out there is too technical and unless you play the position it’s difficult to understand, so misinformation is given to the kids by minor hockey coaches who try to tell the goalies how they think the position should be played.
Rick Heinz: Former NHL Goaltender

The game has dramatically changed, but one thing that hasn’t is the core fundamentals of goaltending, they are still balance, edge transfers and squaring up. Coaches at every level must be able to understand and teach this.
Jim Ralph: Longtime Toronto Maple Leaf broadcaster, entertainer & media personality

Providing coaches with the skills to properly work with their goaltenders is awesome and perfect. I cannot imagine a single coach not jumping at the chance to take advantage of such an opportunity, especially at the grass roots level. 
Larry Feist: Publisher Hockey Now Magazine

A lot of coaches aren't that eager to work with the goalie at all, and if their goalie is decent, they really aren’t eager. Of course when it starts to go South they immediately start looking for help. They should be working to refine the goalies craft throughout the season. 
John Garrett: Former NHL Goaltender, Hockey Night In Canada Broadcaster

Finally! Chris Dyson answered the questions no-one knew how to ask. After 25+ years involved in the industry, It’s great to see this grass roots level support and guidance for the most highly criticized, under- developed position in the game.
Don Straus, Founder Armadilla Masks, World Renowned Artist

I have never before seen information for coaches that is so useful, easily digestible, quick to read and easy to implement. Hockey coaches and parents everywhere will be thrilled with the content of this book!
Colin Hopper, President Source For Sports London, Former President Sports Distributors Canada

If the advice contained in Chris‘ book is made mandatory learning for minor hockey coaches, it will positively change the face of goaltending in North America.
Joni Hallikainen, Former Pro Goaltender, Professional Goaltending Consultant


speaker We are very excited to provide coaches with the opportunity to learn the skills and techniques that have been glaringly missing from all coaching certification programs in Canada.

Minor hockey coaches right through to the professional coaching ranks are simply not given the information and instruction they need to effectively and efficiently work with their goaltenders. This is the single biggest complaint and concern for goalies and parents of goaltenders in North America.

In the mid 90's the Finnish Ice Hockey Federation developed, what is still recognized as the best goaltending development program in the world and this sytem, or a variation of, has been introduced throughout Europe. It is embarrassing that more than 20 years later, we still lag so far behind the European Ice Hockey Federations in the area of goaltending instruction through coaches development in this area.

The Finns (and subsequently most European countries) came to the realization that minor hockey coaches needed to be educated on proper techniques, psychologies, and the physical demands of the position, while being trained to teach every goaltender the essential core skills, developing an understanding of their spatial environment and how to incorporate maximum net coverage, minimizing movement to become as efficient as possible, expending minimal energy, working to develop a style that suits the individual goaltenders abilities and strengths.

The final piece of the formula for successful growth and development (in anything you choose to do) is building self esteem and confidence. These often overlooked key components must be utilized to unlock the students full potential In this program we discuss and demonstrate specific strategies and uncover physiological triggers that build these key areas.

'Building better goalies' through the implementation of a complete national goaltender program that begins with properly educated and trained coaches with set goals, teaching techniques and a true understanding of the position, is an absolute must for North America.

We immediately created and began to present our 'How To Coach Goaltenders' coaching seminar, available free to any minor hockey organization. In addition we offered a Parent Seminar to educate and help parents to better deal with their budding goaltenders at home. Both programs were very successful, with over 160 in attendance at the first Parent seminar.

Now 20 years after being invited to Finland in the development stage of their goaltending program,and after having presented our Coaching Seminars to literally thousands of minor hockey coaches in 3 countries, we are combining our experience - nearly 30 years of goaltender coaching, consulting, training and working with coaches - into one incredible COACHES GOALTENDING CERTIFICATION PROGRAM.

Coaches attending this program will come away with an incredible amount of insight into the art of goaltending and the technical skills required to be effective as coach in helping to develop young goalies.

After completing the entire certification, coaches will come away with the required knowledge to PROPERLY work with goaltenders and truly understand what it is they are trying to teach them. Define problem technical deficiencies in the style of a goaltender at ANY AGE, while fully understanding the correct manner to approach correction and refinement in working with your goaltender to devise a plan of action that works, while ensuring 'buy in' from the goaltender.

This program will feature insightful and interactive discussions, seminar time and live on ice interaction with our experienced goalie instructors. The combination of on ice instruction, classroom and actual on one one direct goalie coaching with the supervision and critique of a long time goaltending coach make this program a one of a kind experience.

We will be providing coaches with an incredible abundance of information and practical work to help foster learning and allow coaches to gain invaluable experience that is not available anywhere else.

OUR GUARANTEES:

- We guarantee that our on ice instructors will have more years of certified goaltending instruction experience than any other school, in the world! We average OVER 100 years of qualified, certified instruction on the ice at every camp we operate. In fact, we challenge you to find another camp with HALF the years of instruction experience on the ice, that we have.

- We guarantee that each and every one of our senior instructors will care about you as a student as well as a person. Your development in both areas is of the utmost importance to us. Our students know they are important because of the genuine interest shown in them and this 'connection' helps to foster a better learning environment.

- We guarantee to remain interested and available to our students after the camp is over (by email) We love teaching and seeing our students develop as goalies and people, so it isn't uncommon for us to hear from our students throughout their season or even years afterward, when they want playing or life advice.

- We guarantee that we are up to date on the trends and techniques of TODAY'S game. We teach what is relevant to the game right now!

- We guarantee that we have only the best people working with YOU and that your enrolment does not simply mean money in the bank for us. While we are of course a business, we are very vigilant in hiring people who want to work with and develop goalies because of their love of the game, not because they are being paid. Our instructors are hired because they have the right mindset, abilities, knowledge and desire to pass their experience on. They love what they do and they do it for all the right reasons. This in itself is one of the key factors that sets us apart from so many other schools.

WE GUARANTEE THAT YOU (OR YOUR CHILD) DESERVE THE BEST POSSIBLE TRAINING FOR YOUR MONEY AND WE'LL DO EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO PROVIDE THIS FOR YOU.
