Summer camp season underway

Young goalie at camp this weekend at Richfield Arena wearing his new Brian's leg pads.This weekend, we opened our 2012 schedule of goalie camps. It marks the 18th straight summer we have offered programs like this.

I was on the ice all weekend as was my son David and Kevin Galbraith.

I believe if we were not providing high-quality programs, we would not be attracting goalies year after year. Goalies came from as far away as Missouri to be part of our program!

We worked with the goalies
on their skating and movement skills as well as variety of crease movements. We did some drills that focused on gloves and rebound control. We also touched on angles, the butterfly technique and breakaways. We had a lot of fun working with the kids.

Six hours of training over a three-day period is a lot for most of these goalies. But they worked hard and had fun!  We saw noticable improvements in their skills and self-confidence.

Each goalie received a jersey, water bottle, Discount Card to Hockey Giant in Bloomington and souvenir poster from Brian’s goalie equipment.

Our next camp is scheduled for July 13-15 at Eagan.
