Goaltender Program

CMHA GOALTENDING PROGRAM

CMHA is committed to providing goalie programming and opportunities.  Our goalie program consists of team goalie training year round beginning on after Thanksgiving and continuing to end of season (skipping Halloween and Christmas break).  Each team should be sending their registered goaltenders to the weekly session. The cost of this mandated training will be billed directly to the teams so please ensure you register a goalie weekly from your team.

CMHA Positional Play Policy

Our goalie program in H3 through Atom C is a rotating position to help our goaltenders gain strength and confidence.  CMHA provides goalie gear to the team for this purpose. CMHA offers 50% off base registration fees for any goaltenders registered full time Atom A and above.

Our Novice to Atom C divisions follow the CMHA Positional Play Goaltender Policy.       

CMHA POSITIONAL PLAY GOALTENDING POLICY

 

Progressive Stepped Development

The foundation of everything goalies learn is based on positional mastery. From Novice aged beginning goalies to pro caliber athletes, all our students are taught to continually work towards improving their positioning skills. Stressing confident positioning is where all goalies start. Once positioning has been understood and demonstrated consistently, our students are ready to start learning the mechanics of stance, movement, challenging shooters, rebound control, playing the puck, and directing play in the defensive end. These are all teachable skills that with our tested training methods have been shown to contribute to the exceptional development of goalies aspiring to raise their game to a higher level. 
 

Attention to Details 
Our Instructors are sticklers for details. Details on stance, positioning, holding your stick and other subtleties can mean the difference between the one that got past you and making the winning save. Students are constantly monitored and assessed for their adherence to practicing exactly as the instructors have explained. Long term, we have found that this attention to detail makes our students more aware of the finer points of their game and aids in developing their mental toughness.
