The Academy of Hockey’s In Season Goaltending Development Program will consist of a 360-degree, holistic approach to accelerating the development of each goalie. Director of Goaltending for the Academy of Hockey, Martin Biron, will lead a group of 18 players through on nine sessions with an emphasis on the Technical, Physical and Mental aspects of goaltending.
Technical – detailed footwork, in-crease positioning to make easier saves, control and tracking rebounds, as well as balance and reaction in game situations including screens and deflections; Physical – IMPACT training sessions emphasis on core strength, balance, agility, and explosive movements in addition to a total body evaluation by IMPACT Sports Performance including a complete physical evaluation to review any imbalances, predispositions to injury, joint alignment, and more.
Mental – Special goalie handbook to be utilized for pre-game preparation and post-game analysis, detailed video sessions with a concentration of game situations to reinforce on-ice instruction especially with puck awareness and efficiency of movements.
