Goaltender Instructor Clinic

This clinic has been arranged so you can continue to improve your coaching skills and offer the quality instruction to your goaltenders. Please see below for details and how it will be used towards credits for your NCCP coaching certification.

We are expecting at least one coach from each team to participate in the clinic.

The cost will be covered by WMHA so please plan on attending and take part in another great opportunity to further your knowledge of goaltender instruction.

Goaltending is a specialized position that minor hockey coaches often find challenging to lead and teach. Learn the foundation of technical skills including skating, stance, moving, positioning, save selection and puck control. Along with the technical aspect of goaltending, coaches will be introduced to practice utilization, communication and specific drills related to goaltending.

This clinic is one of Hockey Canada's NCCP Specialty Clinics which are a series of clinics that offer coaches practical sessions on teaching skills and tactics. These 3 hour clinics are composed of in-class and on-ice sessions and are facilitated by OMHA Instructors trained by Hockey Canada.  

The focus of these clinics is to assist the coach in developing the knowledge and skills to teach and develop age appropriate skills (based upon Hockey Canada’s Long Term Player Development model). Coaches can earn Professional Development credit towards renewal of NCCP certification. In the Instructional Stream, Coaches can work towards ‘certified’ status in each of the 5 streams as designated by the NCCP program of the CAC.

To sign up for the clinic or if you have any questions please contact Chris Williams at [email protected]
