Goalies On Ice – 3 Hours Each Day
Each Day includes three hours of on ice training focusing on all the necessary skills and drills to maximize each goalie’s time on the ice.
Shane breaks his on ice sessions into stations where individual techniques are practiced using highly effective drills with a 3 to 1 goalie to instructor ratio totally overseen by Shane Clifford who is there all day every day.
Goalie stance, movement and shot preparation techniques and drills provide the foundation for each goalie’s butterfly and recovery, loading position and mobility work while down.
All these techniques are taught and reinforced each day and at each goaltender on ice session.
Goalies Off Ice – 1 Hour Each Day
To complement and supplement the three hours of daily on ice sessions, Shane’s goalie camps also provide a daily one hour session of off ice training.
Focusing on core strength (abdominals and lower back); flexibility; lateral speed; quickness; explosiveness; and hand-eye coordination,
Shane’s camps emphasize a total body conditioning that goalies can use not only at summer camp but through the rest of the summer, preseason, regular season and postseason.
These important aspects of goaltending are taught with the use of equipment and concepts such as agility ladders; stretch bands; plyometrics; endurance drills; and stretching (both dynamic and static).
It is these essentials that keep a goalie sharp and in shape through the summer and on into the regular season.
Goalies Classroom Instruction – 1 Hour Each Day
No summer hockey goalie camp would be complete without classroom instruction that enables Shane to “bring it all together”.
At Shane’s summer goalie camps, one hour is devoted daily to classroom instruction that builds off of and reinforces the concepts and techniques emphasized during the on ice sessions and off ice training.
With the use of video featuring today’s top goaltenders combined with Shane’s vast first-hand experience, the concepts of Angle; Square; Depth; Blocking and Reaction Tactics are broken down and illustrated in real game situations.
A session on equipment care and maintenance also provides valuable insight along with Shane’s motivational and mentoring style throughout the week at camp.
