2019 Registration Open Now




"Intensive Goaler U Summer School": Where Goalies Transform from Good to Great!

Please read this entire section to fully understand the different camp options, registration procedure and the selection process to secure entry into the 2019 camps. The Elite specialty camp information is at the end of this email.

We are running 7 consecutive weeks again this summer - starting the week of July 8th with the final week beginning on August 19th. All camps are taking place at Minto arena, 2571 Lancaster road.


On Ice Component

  • Monday to Friday, 8:30am-4:15pm with 3 hours of on ice instruction per day with a ratio of 1 instructor per 2 goalies in the net.
  • The 15 hours of on ice instruction consists of a precise balance of technical and tactical skills following a progressive curriculum.
  • Some of the themes covered throughout the week are Efficiency, Positioning, Patience, Playing Big, Proper Biomechanics, Box Control and much more.
  • Staff includes both instructors and shooters who have attended or played NHL, OHL, NCAA and Jr hockey. Instructors are current or former clients teaching consistent systems to avoid any confusion.

Once again, Goaler U guarantees to place a maximum of only 2 goalies per net. This policy increases individual learning/in net time and instruction by 5 hours compared to other goalie schools who place 3 goalies per net. This assures you get the most value and individual learning time for your dollar.



Off Ice Component

The off ice components are designed to complement the on ice instruction.

  • Goaler U Head Instructor leads a video session each day, analyzing the previous ice session from each participant
  • Mental skills seminars
  • Physical off ice training routines, mobility training and injury prevention programs discussed to educate goalies on how to develop an optimal goaltending body
  • Vision training and visual accuracy exercises
  • NHL Video and system analysis to watch and learn from the pros

Combining these off ice elements with the on ice provide goalies a comprehensive and detailed goaltending learning experience. Goalies who successfully take part in every aspect of the weeklong program end up much stronger, knowledgeable and confident in their ability. You will immediately recognize the changes and improvements after just one week of camp.


The Multiple Week Transformation Process

Over the past 7 years, we have witnessed incredible transformations from goalies attending our school. These are goalies that go from B to making AAA or from playing house league to making the A competitive team. These changes have come from goalies who attend two weeks of Goaler U school with one camp in July and the other in August. This strategy has provided the best results as it combines intense technical training paired with adequate rest, so that goalies are at their peak come tryouts. During week 1, we identify all the weaknesses and replace the various deficiencies with better, stronger habits. Altering muscle memory takes time and often just as the goalies begin to feel great about their improved play, the week-long camp ends.

Completing week 1 provides a strong sense of accomplishment as goalies recognize their significant progress and how more dedicated time will push their game to the next level. After a recommended week off to rest and reflect on the next steps, goalies come back more eager than ever, excited to start the next stage of their transformation process. As soon as the second week of training begins, goalies get right to work focusing on where they left off at the end of their first week of training. By the end of week 2, goalies are transformed into more confident, technical and dominant version of themselves. This all happens right before tryouts, so goalies are ready to shine and demonstrate all the hard work they accomplished over the summer.


Cost and Registration Method

The intensive summer camp will cost $875.00 (Plus tax) for goalies participating one week. Based on previous years, many goalies have wanted to take advantage of the Multiple Week Transformation Process. For those wanting more than one week, Goaler U is now offering the discounted rate of $790.00 ( Plus tax) for the second and third weeks of camp.

To secure your summer session spot, GoalerU needs to receive this registration form indicating first, second and third choice of weeks, plus appropriate deposits. Three separate choices per week attending camp must be given to allow us to build homogeneous groups by age/experience. The deposits written out to Goaler U should be postdated for March 31st 2019 and June 15th 2019. We cannot guarantee everyone’s first choice, but are usually able to meet one of your top three choices. Please send the form to:

Please add to the cheque total any additional “Add Ons” as described below. Last year, 90% of the camp filled in the first three weeks of registration, so please send the forms and deposits at your earliest convenience or you risk not getting in. Please look over the below “Add Ons” and select which additional services you would like to purchase, if any.

Payment Program: No Goalie Left Behind

We understand goaltending is an expensive passion and parents want to provide their kids with the best available training. Therefore, if for whatever reason, the above payment schedule is an issue, do not hesitate to contact us and we will work out a plan that works for everyone. We want to train goalies who are eager to work hard and improve. We will not let finances get in the way of a goalie who wants to improve!!!

Get all the Add Ons for a total of $100.


Every year, people request the same weeks leading up to tryouts, but to maintain the highest quality, we can only accept a small number of applicants. As a result, we now follow a strict selection process that considers in priority.

  1. Goalies attending two or more weeks
  2. Regular Goaler U client throughout the current season
  3. Date full registration was received, with deposits
  4. Goaler U Seniority
  5. Goalie aligns with group level
  6. Goaler U discretion


When filling out the registration form, you will notice a new “BEST AVAILABLE” box where we will select the Goalies who meet the above criteria have a much better chance of receiving their top choices, but in no way does this guarantee acceptance into the camp. If selecting two weeks, we ask that you provide 3 possible options for week 1 and 3 separate possibilities for week 2. As described in the “Transformation Process”, we also strongly recommend selecting one week in July and one in August.

Best weekly camp/s for your goalie. If attending two weeks, we will always place the second week close to tryouts.

Unfortunately, we must turn away people every year, so please do not hesitate to ask questions and send the forms a.s.a.p. or risk not being accepted.

Specialty  Camps


Based on the enormous interest last year, we are opening the Elite camp to more participants. The Elite camp guarantees only 10 to 14 goalies per group with at least half the sessions on the big ice. This camp will take place the week of July 8th and July 22nd (depending on the number of requests). In the application, please specify if you are interested in one or two elite camps, or one elite and one regular.

This camp is only for the most serious and experienced goaltenders and features our best staff along with guest instructors mostly with NHL experience. In the past, we have had Fred Brathwaite, head Team Canada Goalie Coach, Andrew Allen, Sabres Goalie Coach, Mark Lamothe former NHL goalie, Chris Schwartz, Senators Strength coach. This camp also features Major Jr and College Caliber attendees and shooters all working together to prepare for a massive 2017 season.

To apply for this camp, goalies must be serious about pushing their development limits and expanding their comfort zones. Only the most dedicated goalies , with a strong handle on the technical fundamentals will be considered for this program as spots are very limited. Every year we bring guest instructors,with NHL experience, to work with the athletes on and off the ice. For example, last summer the Sens NHL goalie coach joined us for a few days to help share his insights on and off the ice.

The cost of this Elite experience is $1250.00 (Tax In). Spots are very limited so please send in your forms immediately. Unfortunately, we are not able to guarantee that every applicant will be accepted, but we will do our best. Goalies attending two weeks will gain priority selection into the Elite camp.
