This 5 week training program will take your game to a new level. With a focus on the mental aspects of the goaltending position, the Never Rattled Goalie Academy trains goalies to make big saves in big moments.
Weekly sessions are 1 hour long.
Our unique curriculum is taught to goalies in grades 5-8
With individualized instruction, we will use goalies as feeders to work on goalie play from passes, and focus on stick-skills. Coach Bergman works with 3 goalies daily at Harvard, and will be using a similar format
Each 1 hour session will feature various stations focusing on every area of our curriculum, which is outlined below
We are Never Rattled. It is our brand's foundation. Goalie is a position that can feel alienating, but through this isolation we can learn the value of a clear thought process. This allows us to make big saves, in big moments. Every single drill in our academy will reinforce positive body language, mental discipline, and a next play mentality.
We train our goalies based on our Five Core Principles:
A goalie must be balanced in the net at all times, with perfectly equal weight distribution between each leg.
A goalie must have strength and flexibility in their hips. These under-trained, and under-appreciated muscles are responsible for our explosiveness, which is essential between the pipes.
A goalie must have fast hands. This is a requirement to play the position at a high level.
A goalie must have solid footwork, to ensure we are always properly positioned in the net.
A goalie must have strong stick skills. Making a save is not enough. We need to lead our team through the clearing aspects of the game.
