CURRENT GSG Programs

GSG Winter Program (St. John’s, NL ONLY) in partnership with Blizzard Hockey

Our winter program is run in partnership with Blizzard Hockey in St. John’s, NL.

The program runs from October through to April. It is an extremely challenging and engaging program that runs through the duration of the hockey season.

There are four sessions that are dedicated to GOALTENDER SPECIFIC POWER SKATING over the duration of this program. Great Saves Goaltending believes in the necessity of these types of sessions as the proper mechanics of movement and positioning are crucial to all goaltenders of all ages and skill levels. Movement and positioning are repeated and practiced at the NHL level consistently and we believe this should the case for all goaltenders who aim to be better at their chosen position. Movement and positioning are the foundation of goaltending. It is the base of the goaltending pyramid, upon which everything else is built.

We utilize the latest and best goaltending props, tools and technology available during this program and all our programs. Our goaltenders use medicine balls on the ice to promote the use of the lower body and to promote core strength and proper balance. We use mini pucks and white pucks to promote exceptional puck tracking and awareness of weakness in a goaltenders game. We also utilize the incredible technology of the iPad on the ice, which provides INSTANT visual feedback to our students. We believe in the power of our students watching themselves perform so they can relate to the feedback given by our coaches.

Cost of this program is $1295.00 plus HST. Maximum of 16 goalies per group.

Other GSG Programs

2018 Summer Program

Over the summer many goalies are away from the position for several months before either attending a camp at the end of the summer OR waiting for tryouts to commence in the fall. During this period of time, they often regress in their skill set and are not physically or mentally prepared for maximum effort at their summer camps or tryouts.

The Great Saves Goaltending Summer Program is designed to eliminate this layoff in addition to elevating the skills of all our students. We believe that ALL GOALIES need a break from the position; the hockey season is very long and demanding. That being said, we also think it is essential for goalies to maintain what they have LEARNED through the winter months by keeping themselves in playing condition through the off-season. With our summer program the goalies will be on the ice on average twice a month, which makes for the perfect blend of work and relaxation.

The 2018 Summer Program includes:

  • 10 hours of on-ice instruction
  • Great Saves Goaltending Jersey

** We are not currently accepting registration for this program. Registration usually commences in February or March of any given year.

4-Day Camps

Great Saves Goaltending is pleased to announce the return of our popular 4 day camps for 2018!

This camp will be hosted by Great Saves owner and Head Coach Chris Carter, goaltending coach of the Powell River Kings of the BCHL.

Steve Briere, Goaltending Coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs is also involved in this camp for select dates. In addition to being the goaltending coach for the Toronto Maple Leafs, Steve also owns and operates his own goaltending school in the off season called Canadian Professional Goalie Schools. More information about his school can be found at http://www.canadianprofessionalgoalieschools.com

It is worth mentioning that Steve Briere has mentored under the goaltending coach of the Washington Capitals, Mitch Korn. Great Saves Goaltending Head Coach Chris Carter (and several of the GSG staff) has been mentoring under Mitch for the past few years and continues to do so to this day. Mitch is a wonderful teacher who makes his coaches better.
