Five to Ten 60-Minute Sessions Strung Together to Create a Structured Curriculum Plan

Amazing Saves Structured Private lessons are a series of privates that will focus on one skill development per session. Coach Bill will structure 5-10 different save or skill techniques in a series that will create a curriculum that is meant to touch on all the skills a goalie will need to become a complete goaltender. Since no two goalies are at the same point in their development Coach Bill will customize the plan based upon the goalie’s current skill level. A typical session will consist of a 15-minute warmup that will focus on stretching, skating and edge work followed by 45 minutes of individual skill development. The below Skills and Techniques will be used to create a comprehensive practice plan using game situation drills:
