Shield Goaltending’s summer half day goalie camp from August 26-30, 2024 will be a high intensity camp designed to push goalies to reach their full potential and tune up their skills before upcoming tryouts.
The camp will focus on skating, depth and positioning, tracking and save selections for reacting to various game situations. Our drills will be designed to challenge each individual goaltender, providing progression-based drills that will cater to each goalie’s skill-level and will fine tune skills before tryouts.
We want every goaltender to leave the camp with new skills, good habits, increased confidence and with a big smile as we want everyone to have fun through our camps.
