The Elite Camp is designed for goaltenders who want to push themselves to the next level. Goalies will work on conditioning, goalie specific agility and movement in the morning session. In the afternoon, goalies will be split into groups to work on save techniques, selection and game situations. We will also focus on competitive and battle drills. We will teach new and innovative drills that professional and collegiate goalies are currently using.

We will have a mix of current college and junior level goaltenders to help give insight to the campers about what it takes to succeed and push their game to the next level. Due to NCAA restrictions, we can not use their names or likenesses.
