WHAT IS SKILL DEVELOPMENT?

The RINK Goalie Development team is focused on providing age and skill specific training for all goalies. RINK provides small group training and 1 on 1 sessions with a low goalie to coach ratio on a custom-sized (35' x 60') goalie ice or full-sized NHL ice. As goalies progresses through their career, countless experiences are implanted upon a goalie’s mind. Through these experiences, each goalie begins to build an approach. This approach combines these experiences with core fundamentals and the individual’s distinct strengths and limitations.

During a RINK experience, athletes will seek to hone, refine, and master various skill sets within their game. A combination of on and off-ice development will provide goalies a well-rounded and focused approached to their development.
