In The Crease

KenoraYet another busy week for GDI Goalies. This week saw GDI hit the road and travel to Kenora, Ontario. Goalies at the camp were put to the test not only on the ice but off the ice as well, completing daily dry land workouts. GDI’s camps have long stood for a comprehensive approach to goaltender development with a strong emphasis on the technical, psychological, physiological and equipment dimensions of the game. Also taking place this week was the second GDI Prospect Clinic back in Winnipeg. Goalies worked through multiple on-ice sessions and also attended a lecture on becoming a complete goaltender. KenoraThe prospect clinic is designed to have each goaltender in realistic game activity. Through game simulated drills goaltenders will improve performance due to the variability of situational characteristics involved. Compared to a blocked context of training where goaltenders have a pre-determined notion what is about to happen, the variability in these sessions will create success based on a goaltenders adaptability to change within their technical and tactical mindset. The road trip for GDI won't stop here as GDI is back on the road this week to Brandon, Manitoba for another summer camp. ______________________________________________________________________________________
