Mid-Season Reminders!


It is important for all of our goalies to make sure that they keep on top of their training, on and off the ice.  This is the time to assess their performance so far and come to us with any adjustments or tweaks that are needed in order to improve their game.

The way to do this is by making appointments for semi-private sessions with Franco Canadian Goalie School and let David and Marco help you get to the next level in your play.  As well, look at booking time in our Clinics and/or in our Range to help with improving the technical side of this unique position.

Coaches are looking now to build teams for next year.  Don’t get left behind the pack!



Goalie Clinics…


Our clinics and camps are designed to help goalies sharpen their skills through various on ice drills such as power skating and edges, shot reaction drills, positioning, crease awareness and how to read game situations such as screen shots, deflections, break-aways and playing the puck.

Off-Ice Training over Christmas break…



Looking for a way to keep fit, stay active or maybe start a new conditioning program over the Christmas break?  This is the perfect time to do it with your young goalies off school!

Call our trainer Marina Imperio to book an appointment!  Marina can customize a program specifically for your goalie as well as develop a nutrition plan to help keep your goalie healthy and strong.


Sports Vision Training with Heads-Up Mind Gym…


Sports Vision Training is a sophisticated and scientifically proven program, specifically designed to train and enhance the visual, cognitive and motor skills essential to high level performance.


This training enables athletes to process greater amounts of visual information at a quicker rate and more accurately. The result is the ability to make better decisions and output quicker and more accurate physical responses on the playing field.


SVT dramatically improves eye-hand coordination, peripheral awareness, focus & concentration, decision making under stress, speed & span of recognition, depth perception, as well as anticipation and reaction timing.

SVT trains and enhances dynamic acuity – “vision in motion”.
