RINK Goalie Development has continued to be the front-runner in providing the most comprehensive training methods from year to year. RINK Goalie Development has, over the last number of years, added programs to the front and back end of its traditional ADV2 and HP3 programs.
The additions of our INTRO1, ELITE, and PROSPECT programs have expanded the scope of our curriculum. As we pride ourselves in revolutionizing the position, we continue to revisit the entire curriculum in a cohesive manner.
RINK Goalie Development’s progressions and corresponding themes include:
Introduction to Goaltending INTRO1
FOCUS: Foundation Development
FOCUS: Introduction to Multi Inputs
FOCUS: Advanced Technical and Multi-Input Training
FOCUS: Advanced Technical and Game Dynamic Training
FOCUS: Building Game-Pertinent Intangibles
BROADENED PERFORMANCE FOCUS
RINK Goalie Development’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. Starting in 2013, RINK Goalie Development’s performance focus has broadened to include the following array of performance inputs:
Continuing to study and evolve RINK Goalie Development has broadened its instructional approach and philosophy, along with both the on-ice and off-ice curriculums to accommodate each of these crucial inputs. Each goaltender attending a RINK Goalie Development program or camp will not only be exposed to each of these but will explore, within themselves, their unique recipe for success. The RINK Goalie Development team will help facilitate this personal journey and exploration.
