The New Jersey Colonials use structured weekly goaltender practice sessions, video analysis and sports psychology sessions for all goaltenders in the program.
The goal is to develop goaltenders from within the program using progression teaching methods throughout the season beginning with the fundamentals of the position at the lowest ages. As ages increase and skill levels advance, goaltenders will be instructed on methods designed to encourage athletic development.
Progression teaching methods and sessions will be designed to provide more detailed aspects of advanced goaltending for older goaltenders. All training will be based on the American Development Model, specific to goaltending. All goalies will have goalie specific training to reach their highest potential at the position. NJC is fully committed to goaltender development as individuals and teammates.
