By Megan Isenbarger, 05/14/24, 12:15PM EDT


The Spacemen Summer Goalie Camp offers a unique opportunity for goalies to improve their skills and experience a junior hockey atmosphere with the Spacemen coaching team. Led by Coach Melnikov, the camp includes 3 x 90 minute on-ice sessions and 2 x 60 minute off-ice sessions for a well-rounded experience. 

On-ice practices will cover a wide range of essential skills including skating, position-ing techniques, concept and habit training, game situation simulations, battle drills, and working through screens.

Off the ice, goalies will engage in mobility and flexibility exercises, hand-eye coordination drills, and performance testing to further enhance their abilities.

Each goalie will receive a personalized evaluation to provide valuable feedback on their progress and areas for improvement at the end of camp.

Camp fees are $400. Space is limited space! Secure your spot by registering early.
