We are getting ready for our 23rd season of helping goalies improve their skills, consistency, confidence and overall game performance at our popular weekend camps that will be held throughout Minneapolis-St. Paul area.
Look for our 2017 schedule to be posted around Jan. 1.
This year, CGS offered four different skill development programs: Intro to goaltending, intermediate skills, advanced skills and tryout tune-up. Ice times were at night and on weekends at Braemar Arena (Edina), Richfield Arena, Schwan Super Rink (Blaine) and White Bear Sports Center (White Bear Lake).
Goalies from throughout Minnesota and five other states (Alaska, California, Iowa, North Dakota, Wisconsin) joined us for a weekend of skill development.
Goalie parents like the variety of programs we offer because they realize that training under the watchful eye of Director Steve Carroll and his staff can make a significant impact in the development of their kids.
Here is what some our 2016 participants are saying about their CGS experience.
“CGS has improved our son’s goalie skills tremendously the past two years. Coach Carroll and his staff always treat the goalies with respect and you can tell they love what they do.”
Megan A., Woodbury, Minnesota
“Is it a coincidence; five years with Carroll and five winning seasons?
Logan C., Lakeville, Minnesota
“Our son learned a lot about goaltending and had a blast doing it. We will be back for more camps for sure.”
Steve F., Mason City, Iowa
“This is our second time with Steve Carroll. We love the camp, from the good price/value, coaching, ice time, and skills that are developed. Once again we highly recommend Steve’s camp/clinics. He is very knowledgeable, has a great heart, and truly loves helping the kids. Thank you Steve and coaches for another great, successful camp, which our son Ethan Kalafatich truly enjoyed!”
Brian K., Mahtomedi, Minnesota
“Ty made some big improvements in his skating. Namely shuffles and c-cuts. I would highly recommend this school just for skating instruction alone. Coach Carroll was also very approachable and helpful with his answers to my questions. Great job!”
Chad S., International Falls, Minnesota
“Coaches are very knowledgeable and pushed my daughter beyond her comfort zone.”
Joshua S., Delano, Minnesota
“My son wanted the weekend to be longer!!!”
Kristi B, St. Paul, Minnesota
“Really friendly instructors who care about everyone and made it fun and helpful.”
Brandon B, Sartell, Minnesota
“Great camp and a good learning experience for my son. He came off the ice with a smile on his face everyday!”
Mark U., Duluth, Minnesota
