GDI Prairies is pleased to introduce you to the most productive and cost efficient off season program for goaltenders throughout the area. This program includes both professional off-ice and on ice instruction to maximize your performance and minimize your weakness.


Off-Ice: Until recent years, proper conditioning for goaltenders in Canada has been virtually non-existent. Unfortunately, most goaltenders have never received proper training or understand all of the necessary components that are involved in a high performance goaltending training program. The off-ice program we offer provides specific training to fully develop the goaltender. The program shows how and why goaltenders can improve their on ice performance tremendously with off-ice training.

Great goaltending requires excellent agility, stamina, power, speed, strength, balance, flexibility, hand/eye coordination and most of all outstanding response time. The program focuses on 9 different components:

  • Strength Training
  • Flexibility/stretching
  • Aerobic Training
  • Power Training
  • Speed Training
  • Anaerobic Training
  • Hand/Eye Training
  • Agility Training
  • Response time

The goal of our Program is to teach the goaltenders various exercises and drills needed to progress in all 9 components and in conjunction with group activities that will maximize their on ice performance.
