GOALTENDER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

The New Jersey Colonials offer structured goaltender-only 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 youngest ages. As ages increase and skill levels advance, goaltenders will be instructed on methods designed to encourage athletic development.

Training is based on the American Development Model, specific to goaltending. All goalies receive goalie specific training to reach their highest potential at the position. NJC is fully committed to goaltender development as individuals and teammates.

PROGRAM EXPECTATIONS

  1. Attend goalie specific clinics during regularly scheduled practice weeks and/or goalie coaches attend team practices on a floating schedule.
  2. Clinics divided into age groups to optimize individual instruction.
  3. Expect to pay full team tuition to offset the cost of the program.  No need to pay for private lessons!
