Goaltender Sessions

These sessions work on developing a goaltender’s overall ability and technique by improving their balance, positioning and lateral mobility. Goalies will enhance their performance in the net as they focus on angles, rebound control, playing the puck as well as practice defending against breakaways and rush attacks.

Our goalie session is designed to maximize learning potential in young goalies of ANY caliber, from beginner to advanced. No matter if they are strapping on the pads for the first time, or are playing elite level hockey, all of our participants will benefit from specialized and skill level geared instruction.

The CIHA would like to welcome our new goalie coach, Jack Regnier.  Jack is joining us from the West Coast, where he worked with young goalies from minor hockey all the way up to Junior A.  Jack is now launching his goalie coaching career, here in Clarence Rockland and the Eastern Ontario Region.
