Learn How to Coach Your Goalies

By Minnesota Hockey, 09/11/17, 11:15AM CDT


Two Goalie Coaching Clinics Scheduled in October

Two USA Hockey Coaching Education Program (CEP) High Performance Goalie Coaching Clinics, designed to teach youth hockey coaches of all skill levels how to effectively work with and develop goalies, are scheduled for October in Duluth and Brooklyn Park.

The clinics include classroom presentations and an on-ice session where participants will observe several demonstration stations and get a chance to try various goalie-specific skating movements.

Scheduled presenters include:

  • Phil Osaer, USA Hockey, ADM Manager for Goaltending
  • Mike MacMillan, USA Hockey National Coach-in-Chief
  • Steve Carroll, Minnesota Hockey Goalie Development Coordinator
  • Justin Johnson, goalie coach, University of Minnesota men's hockey team

Other presenters will include college and high school goalie coaches. Coaches should bring skates and gloves and must wear a helmet during the on-ice session.

Saturday, Oct. 14, 2017
Duluth Heritage Sports Center
11 a.m. - 6 p.m.

Sunday, Oct. 15, 2017
Brooklyn Park Community Activity Center

Youth hockey coaches can move up a level in their CEP certification by attending one of these clinics. For example, a Level 1 coach can move to Level 2, a Level 2 can move to Level 3, a Level 3 can be re-certified. Attending one of these clinics will have no impact on a coach looking to earn their Level 1 or Level 4 certification.  Coaches must attend entire clinic. Pre-registration is required. Cost is $60 and includes meal.

Clinics are open to anyone interested. To register, go to the Coaching Clinic page on USA Hockey's website and search for "CEP High Performance" clinics located in Minnesota on the specified dates.
