2010 Rocky Mountain Elite Goaltending Summer Camp Information

June 1, 2010

Hello Goalies and Goalie Parents,

It has been a while since details of the 2010 Summer Camp were announced and the first session is quickly approaching so we are sending this information so everyone is informed and no one misses anything.

Dates and Times of the Camp

The camp sessions are Friday evenings beginning June 4th and ending July 30th. There will be no session July 2nd in observation of Independence Day.

The first ice session begins promptly at 4.05 pm and the second at 5.35 pm. Each on-ice session is 90 minutes long and there will not be an ice-make in-between sessions. Details of off-ice sessions are listed below in Section V.

Camp Location

All camp sessions will be held at the Ice Ranch. Address is 841 South Park Drive in Littleton. Ice Ranch phone number is 303.285.2110.

Goalie Groups

There are two groups for the camp, each based on combination of birth year and experience. They are split evenly based on camp attendees.

The Fleury Group – Designed for younger and/or lesser experienced goalies            

The Miller Group – Designed for more experienced and/or older goalies.

Group Information/Sessions

Each week The Fleury Group begins working on-ice while The Miller Group begins with off-ice training.

Attendance

With a 8-week camp, we expect several goalies to miss at least one session. Please email us (elitegoaltending@yahoo.com) before the camp begins with date(s) you will be missing so the staff can plan sessions accordingly.

Final Payment

To reserve a slot in the camp, a deposit was required in the amount of $300.00. The remaining balance ($275.00) is due before your goalie begins their first on-, or off-ice, session. We are sorry but there are no exceptions.

Balances can be submitted when goalie checks-in on July 4th. If a goalie is going to miss the first week, please notify us by email at elitegoaltending@yahoo.com and we will make arrangements.

Checks are to be made out to Rocky Mountain Elite Goaltending.

Jerseys and Off-Ice Apparel

Each goalie will be provided a camp jersey to wear throughout all ice sessions of the entire camp. The jerseys, which are all goalie cut, were ordered through a custom manufacturer and had to be pre-ordered in the early spring.  Jerseys will be distributed during check-in and since sizes were estimated at time of order there may be cases where jerseys are not actual size goalie would normally order.

For off-ice training, please make sure to bring attire and shoes appropriate for working out. Any goalie without appropriate shoes will not be able to participate in the workouts and will have points deducted from the Reebok Challenge.

Goalies are responsible to bring their water to the off-ice training portion of the camp.

Off-Ice Training Information

Rocky Mountain Elite Goaltending formed a partnership with Casey Bond and Paul Goldberg for all of our goalie-specific off-ice workouts. We are very pleased to offer our goalies the opportunity to learn from the Strength and Conditioning Coaches of the Colorado Avalanche.

Each off-ice session will last approximately 60 minutes and will concentrate solely on developing areas that will enhance each goalie’s on-ice performance.

Most off-ice sessions will take place outside so please make sure to bring something to drink.

Sessions begin at 4.15 (The Miller Group) and 6.05 for The Fleury Group.

Reebok Challenge

Each goalie will participate in the Reebok Challenge as part of the camp. As before, each week there will be an on-ice drill as well as goalie-specific homework questions to earn points.

On-ice points are awarded two ways. First, goalie will be awarded points based on how successful they execute the drill. In addition, each goalie will be paired-up with goalie of similar skill. Whoever scores better throughout the drill will be awarded bonus points. Our aim is to rotate the goalie tandems so goalies only compete against each other once.

Homework answers can, primarily, be found on our blog in the numerous articles. Blog address is www.elitegoaltending.wordpress.com.

 The top three goalies in points for each group will earn new Reebok goalie gear. The top three prizes are

The Fleury Group

First Place – Revoke 7000 Goalie Pads

Second Place – Revoke 7000 Catcher and Blocker Set

Third Place – Premier 7k Goalie Stick

The Miller Group

First Place – Revoke 9000 Goalie Pads

Second Place – Revoke 9000 Glove and Blocker Set

Third Place – Premier 7k Goalie Stick

Point System is as follows-

Point Accumulations

On-Ice Session Drill – Up to 10 Points

On-Ice Bonus Points – Up to 2 Points (if tie score, bonus points are split)

Off-Ice Homework/Questions – Up to 10 Points

Attendance - 2 points each week attended

Point Deductions  

Late to On-/Off-Ice Sessions        1 point

To prevent problems with delivery (i.e. email spam filters, incorrect addresses), weekly posted on our blog.

Weekly Reebok Challenge Questions will be posted on the blog each week by Sunday evening. To submit answers please click on our email link (listed with the questions) and send the email when answering is completed. All goalies must submit their answers by 2.00 pm Friday to earn up to 10 points. If any questions are submitted later, the highest possible point total for the week is 5. No points are awarded after answers to questions are posted on the blog which, typically, will be the following Sunday evening after the session.

For winners in each group, all winners will receive Reebok gear. Under no circumstances will any substitutions from other goalie gear manufacturers be allowed. If a winning goalie does not need the actual gear he earned, a substitution from within the Reebok line will be allowed of the same value.

Please note, Kevin’s son, Dillon, will be participating in the camp and Reebok Challenge but will not be eligible to win any of the prizes if he were to finish in the top three in his group. He is not aware of this and Coach Whalen prefers it stays that way…

Goalie’s Behavior/The Ice Ranch

Rocky Mountain Elite Goaltending is very pleased to offer our camp at The Ice Ranch and believe the facilities will be a perfect fit for our camp. Although we do not expect any problems, we do require all goalies treat the facility and its staff with full respect – particularly the locker rooms. If any goalie(s) is found to abuse the facility/staff in any manner, they will be sent home immediately and may be excused from the remainder of the camp. If excused, there will be no refunds issued by Rocky Mountain Elite Goaltending and goalie will be held liable for any property damages to the rink.

Locker Room Assignments

Each group will be assigned two locker rooms and we request goalies use one of the two locker rooms assigned to their specific group.

Elite Goaltending Blog

All camp announcements, Rbk Challenge Questions and Weekly Recaps will be posted on our blog (www.elitegoaltending.wordpress.com).  The majority of the homework questions will be based on content from the blog entries.

Elite Goaltending Summary Camp Week Two Summary

June 14, 2009

Week Two was particularly dedicated to the introduction of angles as well as ½ butterfly and pad extension save movements. Introduced one of the tougher drills for a goaltender called the Roy Drill, named after Patrick, after finding out (from a very good source) it is one of his favorite drills (more on this drill later in summary).

Briefly, there are three components to a goalie’s position as an impending shot is about to be released. They are angle, depth within crease, and body position. Each one of these carry different priorities depending on each scoring situation and for the sake of this summary we are concentrating on angles.

A few basic thoughts on Angles in relation to positioning-

Finding the Angle – goalies need to understand the triangle (illustrated below) of puck in relation to the posts and position themselves so they are centered with equaling amounts of net showing on either side of their body.

Angle I

Play the Puck Not the Shooter – this is the hardest aspect of angles for younger goalies. Common mistake is goalie lines self up on player instead of the puck particularly if the attacking player moves the puck from directly in front of body to the side to load-up for a shot. Diagram below using the triangle illustrates the difference in angle with lining-up on attacking player and puck. The body position never matters – only the puck.

Playing Puck

Shifting Angles – While tracking the puck the goalie must understand theangles are constantly shifting and only minor position adjustments are typically needed. Goalies of all ages make mistakes tracking pucks by taking visual cues from shooters and then over-committing thus being off-angle.

RoyWe introduced the Roy Drill, much too several goalies dismay, to demonstrate the need to play the puck (not shooter) and shifting angles. Briefly, the drill utilized some of our Thunderbird AAA midget skaters who were instructed to stick handle side-to-side a few feet above the crease while the goalie had to make sure he was following the puck. Sounds simple, but clearly was not for both sets of age groups within the camp. It is a great drill for angles, anticipation, footwork within the crease, and conditioning. Week Two is not the only time the Roy Drill will make an appearance at the 2009 Summer Camp.

As for save movements, the ½ butterfly and pad extensions were introduced during Week II. The ½ butterfly movement in used when puck is shot slightly off the goalie’s center while full pad extensions are used when the puck is aimed further out from the goalie’s body.

Week II Reebok Challenge

The Roy Drill was used for both groups during Week II Reebok Challenge after the goalies had a chance to practice it earlier in the session. Simply, the goalie had to follow the puck and make the save. If the puck was prevented from entering the net, a point was awarded. A total of 10 points were available to each goalie and this was the first week in camp history no goalie earned the maximum points (to be fair, this was the first time this drill was used in our camps).

Not many comments to make on it although a number of goalies became very frustrated while going through the drill. In fact, there were at least three instances where goalies began crying (to steal and slightly alter a great line from the baseball movie “A League of Their Own” – “There’s No Crying in Hockey”) because the drill became so frustrating. I’m convinced many goalies earned worse scores than they would normally due to allowing their frustration to effect their performance. As we preach regardless of situation all that matters is the next save opportunity. If a goal is scored, move on and prepare for next opportunity.

The Fleury Group Top Three

#1 – 31 Points – Smith and Munn

#2 – 30 Points – Avila

#3 – 29 Points – Jahde, Zurcher, Whalen 

The Brodeur Group Top Three

#1 – 31 Points – Finley

#2 – 30 Points – Nash

#3 – 29 Points – Cavanaugh, Morgan, Parker

Homework questions already posted (typically they appear on the blog Wednesdays). If you haven’t seen them, the mental aspects of the game is the subject matter (get used to this). They are due Wednesday before 3.00 and please do not bring questions to turn-in. Answers most be emailed so they’re not misplaced and we have an electronic version.

Lastly, parents of youngest goalies, if your goalie needs help getting dressed, please make sure they are taken care of. Each week we have had to help goalies get ready to get on the ice. The staff has too many responsibilities to prepare for getting on the ice to worry about helping goalies get their gear on. Thank you in advance.

Until Week III,

Coach W


Elite Goaltending Summary Camp Week One Summary

June 5, 2009

Brian and I are thrilled the ‘09 camp has begun and want to begin by pointing out all goalies who have attended our camps in the past have improved. Many have improved tremendously. Simply, it’s a reflection on hard work and commitment to become better which is at the core of our philosophy both on- and off-ice.

We hope you and your family can see your improvement. But… there is much work to do and we are expecting even greater strides from all of you.

Comments on Week 1’s Session-

As the goalies know (particularly their legs…), Week 1 was dedicated mostly on goaltender-specific movement. We know movement is not the best choice for getting kids excited at the beginning of the camp but it is the most important. Every goalie needs to work on movement every time they are on the ice. Shuffles, sculls, t-pushes, etc most be mastered if the goalie is to be any good.

Could it be considered boring? Yes.

Could personal time be spent on something else? Not really.

The more the goalie works on movement, the better he will be.

A few things we noticed many goalies need correction on-

  1. In movement drills, goalie’s gloves must still be facing forward. Many goalies tend to turn in their catching glove so it would not be facing a puck. Wrong. Every goalie must keep their hands where they would be in a stance. Again, THE UPPER BODY IS INDEPENDENT FROM THE LOWER BODY. What the legs are doing should have no effect on the hands.
  2. Similar to the gloves, chest and head need to be upright (as if in stance again) while moving around. Always be looking up and letting the crest-on-your-chest show.
  3. When moving around the crease, goalies need to remain within their stance so they are ready for any shot while being balanced. This is regardless of where the puck is in the zone. Many goalies in both groups tended to lose their knee bend when moving around and, in many cases, stood-up. As we say, shoulders cannot be bobbing up-and-down. As listed below, this was very important for The Fleury Group.
  4. Stick always leading movement – never left behind. Common with younger kids, shuffles to the goalie’s glove side causes the stick to get left behind. This is wrong and will cost a goal-against in a game.
  5. Double Coverage. This relates to the body position while moving. Many times two pieces of equipment are covering the same area leading to double coverage. A common example is when the goalie places his blocker directly in front of the leg pad. Goalies need to work on being as big in their net as possible and avoiding double coverage is an effective way to do it. Positioning the body to be larger in the net leads to more saves (of course) but also forces shooters to try to be more accurate. This can lead to a delay in shot release which can give the goalie a better depth scenario (if shooter skating towards goalie) and improved chance the shot is never released because goalie’s defense takes advantage of the hesitation. Always make sure the gloves are out to the sides.

All of these were pointed out during the ice sessions and need to be worked on. We will continue to harp on these until everyone is doing it correctly. In hockey, particularly at the older age groups, the game is played at such a high speed. Goalies need to make sure they have paid attention to all the little details to succeed. 

The Brodeur Group got to experience a great drill where they partnered up and while power sliding they tossed pucks at each other to catch.  It’s safe to say Week Two will see the drill again. We all need a little work on this one. Great drill for agility, concentration, movement and, most importantly, getting the goalies to keep their gloves independent from the movement of thier legs. 

In addition to the movement, the introduction of sticks saves were made with the goalies facing shots to their stick both while standing and while on their knees. More shots are headed their way in the next week as we will continue to work on stick saves and move to legs, gloves, and chest.

Week 1 Reebok Challenge

For the first week, we ran different challenges for each group.

The Fleury Group

This week’ challenge concerned keeping within stance while moving around the crease (#3 in the corrections listed above). Whenever the puck is in the goalie’s end of the ice, the goalie should stay in their stance while moving around so they can react to a shot immediately with balance.

This week the goalies were instructed to move to ten different points around the crease and we watched for any breaking of the stance. If the goalie broke his stance, one point was deduced from the possible ten. If the goalie lost an edge and stumbled or fell to the ice, points were not deducted.

The Brodeur Group

The older group tested their body control by power sliding between cones set approximately the width of the net. Goalie had to begin up against a cone and then slide back-and-forth between the two cones always stopping right before the cone. If the goalie stopped well short of the cone, the slide was not counted and another was added to the drill. A total of 10 slides (5 to each side) were counted.

Any time the goalie touched the cone with skate, glove, pad, etc, a point was deducted.

This is a great drill (and test) to work on the power slide with particular emphasis of controlling how far the goalie slides. How many times have you seen a goalie slide too far and fail to gain angle on the puck leading to an easy goal?

In addition to the ten possible points, the Reebok Challenge awards two points for attendance every week (one for on-ice and the other for attending off-ice training).

Since this blog will not allow me to post a spreadsheet the size we need, we will only list the Top Three each week and then email the spreadsheet to all goalies. If you don’t receive it, please check your spam filter. If not there, please email me.

The Fleury Group Top 3

 #1 – 12 Points – Jahde, Munn

#2 – 11 Points – Bukes, Fessenden, Whalen

#3 – 10 Points – Avila, Larson, Martin, Smith, Stern, Zurcher

The Brodeur Group Top 3

#1 – 12 Points – Finley, Stef

#2 – 11 Points – Corley, Hawkey, Kricke, Morgan, Parker, Shaw

#3 – 10 Points – Bader, Cavanaugh, Dinapoli, Jacobs, Nash

Of course, beginning next week, with homework scores, another on-ice challenge and attendance points, the goalies scores will not be so clustered together.

Speaking of the homework questions, they were posted Tuesday evening and are due in our email box by 3.00 p.m. Wednesday. Five questions dealing with the mental parts of the game. Frankly, with the answers located throughout the blog, I am expecting every goalie to get full credit but more important to me is they read about the importance of the mental game. It is vital to successful goaltending. A goalie can have all the natural ability in the world but if his mind is not prepared for the demands of the position, his natural talents are wasted in this great game.

One word of advice, last year’s Challenge the overall winner for the older group won on the last shot of the entire ten week Challenge. Every year we have done this, a goalie wins gear by beating the next goalie by less than 1 point. Not kidding. EVERY POINT AVAILABLE MATTERS. Don’t lose a chance to win new Reebok gear – it’s yours for the taking!!

DO NOT TAKE THE HOMEWORK QUESTIONS OR ANYTHING ELSE LIGHTLY – IT MAY COST YOU NEW GEAR.

Look for the Reebok Challenge Standing in pdf. format in your email box by Tuesday and make sure to always watch this blog for goaltending news.

Now, go get this week’s questions done….

Until Next Week,

Coach W

Robinson Proves Hard Work and Determination Lead to Success

July 16, 2008

http://www.usahockey.com/Template_Usahockey.aspx?NAV=PL_01_08&id=233258

Darrin Robinson, who attends the summer camp when in town, is currently participating in the USA Hockey Select 14 Player Development Camp in Rochester, New York and has a profile featured on USA Hockey’s website.

Darrin is a special kid who has had to overcome a physical difficulty to reach his current level as one of the top goalies in the 1994 birth year.

Simply, he is proof of when someone commits to a goal and works relentlessly to achieve it, goals become reality.

Good job Darrin! You still have a long way to go and the road becomes much tougher. Never forget what you have done to get where you are. Don’t ever let up.
