WHY THE TRAINING CENTRE?
-Batters have a batting cage
-Golfers have a driving range
Where can a goaltender go to improve and develop their skills?
In practice a goaltender will face 20 to 30 shots in warm up and then maybe another 25 in a scrimmage. Most of these shots are blasted at the net with no thought for the goalie or his well being. Players are certainly not thinking about the goaltenders confidence or development. There has always been the tennis ball in the driveway or basement. Fun, but not much like a game situation, or effective in developing a specific a skill or technique.
WE HAVE THE ANSWER!
Our Year Round Goaltender Training Centre is a personalized, intimate environment where you can learn at your own pace with the assistance of an expert instructor.
Don't be fooled by glitzy buildings, marketing campaigns, propaganda or franchises.
We can provide goaltenders with, not 30 to 60 shots in an hour, but up to 500. These shots are accurately fired from our Boni Puckshooting machine, between 5 and 100 miles per hour. All shots will be directed with the intention of improving the goaltenders skills and self confidence.
Work on deflections, screens, high or low, whatever you require, we are able to adapt our program to meet your needs. Our expert staff are able to offer ONE on ONE training at your convenience. All sessions are done on our new 'plastic ice' surface in full gear, including skates.
TEAM TRAINING IS INEFFECTIVE
Goaltending is the most difficult position in all of sports! It is also the most ignored, overlooked and misunderstood, in regards to training and development of skills. Most coaches do not have the training, knowledge or ice time to develop and work one on one with their goaltender. Most often the goaltender becomes a target for other players during practice. We do not blame the coaches. They are responsible for developing and overseeing an entire team, focusing on one player is an almost impossible task.
Most coaches have never played goal and it is impossible to properly teach what you have not done!
SPECIALIZED 'REAL TRAINING' REQUIRED
The best possible way to properly train goaltending skills and build confidence is in full equipment with real pucks in a game type situation, one on one. We offer that one on one 'real training' at our year round Training Centre. Our programs are custom designed to meet the needs and requirements of each individual.
ONE ON ONE 'REAL TRAINING'
We don't guarantee to get you into the NHL but who really can? What we do guarantee is to work as hard as possible to improve your game and refine your skills. It is impossible not to improve, with the practice and quality training we provide.
Goaltending schools are great for fine tuning, just prior to the season. But what about during the season when you need to be your best? We are open year round, so you are able to fine tune or work on problems throughout the year, when you need it most! our rates are more than comparable when you consider that most hockey schools offer a 5:1 or 4:1 student to instructor ratio. We provide you with undivided attention for the full session, something hockey schools cannot possibly offer.
