We take pride in helping you become the best goalie you can be
We understand that every goalie that straps on their pads has a uniqueness to their play and their strengths and weaknesses. Therefore, we do not teach a specific style of play. Our qualified coaching staff works with each goalie to develop a training program tailored to their needs. With our guidance, we guarantee that you will see significant improvements in your game and play at your highest level.
QUALIFIED COACHING STAFF
Positioning and Movement
At ATC Goaltending, we focus on teaching the proper positioning and movement techniques that are essential to becoming the best goalie you can be. Our coaches will work with you on edge control, up and down movement technique, situational positional awareness as well as help you create your own landmark in zone system.
Learn how to manage rebounds effectively and minimize second-chance opportunities for the opposing team. Consistent performance is directly linked to how well the goaltender can control the puck after each save. We emphasize catching pucks with our glove, proper pad flare usage, playing the right sized net as well as be patient and allowing the puck to come to us.
Balance Posture and Stance
The ability to be balanced with correct posture and using the proper stance based on the situation is paramount to having sustained success as a goalie. We focus on proper body posture in your stance as well as when entering or staying in your butterfly. We teach a 3 stance system that allows goalies to move freely around the crease as well as find sight-lines when there is traffic in front of the net.
We simulate game situations in our training sessions to help you develop the mental and physical skills necessary to excel under pressure. Our coaches will work with you to improve your awareness of threats away from the puck, communication, rebound control, and decision-making to ensure you are always one step ahead of the competition.
