Looking to send my daughter - a freshman in high school goalie - to several college camps this summer... other than checking every website (and finding out the camp info hasn't been posted or updated) how can I find a list of schools offering camps? Location not important. thanks

Most colleges/schools list on web site. I am most familiar with Providence College not sure of specific goalie program but they have developed a string of college greats between the pipes http://www.deraneyhockeyschools.com

Are you looking for her to get better or to get exposure? There is a difference based on the goal.

That's a tough one and maybe others have ideas. If she will graduate in 2015 from HS, I suggest Rinksport in Boston, MA. www.rinksport.com. There's only one goalie spot left so if you are interested you better hurry.

There are lots of training opportunities in Minnesota but I'm not aware of any week long camps. OS Hockey has a weekend prospects camp but I'm not sure of the age requirements and I don't think that they provide housing. www.oshockey.org

Most of the other programs in Minnesota go from 6 weeks to the entire summer. There was a week long camp in Grand Rapids, MN a few years ago. I'm not sure that they are offering it this year. It was sponsored by the same people that sponsored the Minnesota Crunch.

Totally agree. Many college camps are recruiting tools and really aren't great camps from a learning perspective (although you'll potentially play against strong kids depending on which college you're talking about).

rinksport is really great. 20 kids per team so you don't get so tired out there. And only
one sheet of ice so you don't get lost at the rink.

Is there an established summer team you can join? Enough parents and coaches to cobble one together? I believe many of the summer teams are very strong. They are usually made up of players that are more motivated, want to learn more, and typically higher skilled.

A camp or two can be good, if the camps specifically have goalie coaches and specific goalie time. They will all say they do but what do they really offer. Pay attention to actual on ice and off ice work out time. Picking up some of the usual hockey rags around your arena for lists of local and non-local camps. Seems almost every college offers some type of camp.

Best thing for a goalie is not a one week camp, or series of camps as you suggest, but weekly sessions over the course of the summer. Goaltending is so much about technique, and perfecting those techniques requires muscle memory that is better served by 10 hour long sessions over the summer rather than 10 hours in one week. (and don't forget your off-ice strength and conditioning program)

Find a local team. Take a camp to get technique corrections. A local team will have weekly ice time. I would say muscle memory is a misnomer.

IMO week long camps have little value. A week of training and working hard is fine but a week is just not long enough. If the things learned and the training techniques can be carried out over a much longer period of time, ok, but a week or two means very little. Exponentially better are summer long training programs where hockey specific training is provided.

In the Twin Cities, there are several excellent options like Velocity, First Athlete, OS -- don't mean to leave out any other worthy programs. A program should include skating, weight training, plyometrics, shooting, maybe a skating mill and a conditioning program. Team that with a summer league to help stay sharp on the ice and thats the way to go. The costs can be high, I guess -- my D has done both Velocity and First Athlete in different summers for about $1000. I guess that's not too bad comparing travel costs to go to a week long program in anywhereville USA/CAN.

Power skating programs are also very valuable. Pick out a good one and I assure you you will see NHL and college men players there. If those players can improve their skating, certainly HS and college girls can as well. I believe these programs are under utilized for their overall value.

Really? A local team will not have ice over the course of the summer. Most local teams don't have goaltending instruction. Most coaches don't know when a goalie's balance is on or off, or if they are even square to the puck to begin with. Goaltending at this age is about repetition. Repetition is muscle memory. Repetition, repetition and more reps on top of that. And having someone who knows when the reps are on, and when they are off to oversee the whole process.

I agree a week long camp isn't enough and a week long camp should be looked at mainly as an exposure opportunity. I think rinksport.com is great for exposure to a lot of college coaches. I think if you are talking about goalie specific training in the Twin Cities you have to add Goal Crease www.goalcrease.com, Carroll www.carrollgs.com, and FHIT/MEGA Goaltending http://www.fhitplayers.com/page/show/247961-mega-goaltending. I think you are right about making sure that weight training and plyometrics are included as unfortunately many so-called goalie training clinics don't have much off ice training and are really just looking for goalies for their skaters to shoot at.
