Week Long Summer Hockey Sleep Away Camp

This year I have been invited to join Coach Viliam (SkyLiners) and Lada (North Park) in beautiful Pocono, Pa. and run the goaltender portion of their yearly week-long summer camp. Join Coach Bill for a fun week of goaltender development in a traditional sleep-away camp format. Goalies will benefit from small group goalie coaching along with their participation in-game situation drills and scrimmages. Along with Two and a half hours of on-ice instruction, there will be an additional hour of off-ice instruction. These sessions will include instruction on Yoga for goalies, stretching, mobility and agility exercises along with eye-hand coordination drills and instruction. When not on the ice or training off the ice the athletes will enjoy the benefits of home cooked meals and nightly family styled cookouts. Organized trips to local attractions like Pocono Speedway, Minor League Baseball games, Movies and Water Park will round out what will surely be a week to remember for years to come!

Multiple Skill Development Session: In this format, the lesson will consist of drills that work anywhere from 2-8 different skills. A typical session will begin with a 10-15 warmup that will focus on stretching, skating and edge work. The remaining 45-50 minutes will be dedicated to shooting and game situation drills.
