Our signature pro curriculum has evolved from creating training programs for our most elite goalies. We've systematically structured our training plan into 20 individual sessions. Sessions can be schedules over 20 weeks, 10 weeks or a tailored schedule.

Program Objectives

  • Identify and implement optimal training process and values

  • Body posture on execution/tracking

  • Arrive on feet more times than not

  • Gain/maintain centre line to path of puck

  • Scan/mentally process the game at all times


  • Determine training queues to optimize playing system

Junior Mentorship Program


We have had the opportunity over the last decade to not only coach talented goaltenders but some incredible people. We wanted to create a program where our veteran CGD goalies can be positive role models and influencers for our younger clients. In parallel to the 20 Session Pro Plan CGD mentors will provide leadership and guidance with the following;

Weekly communication and contact

On-ice instruction

1 paired on ice semi-private training session 

Off-ice guidance and motivation

Monthly paired off ice training

4 video coaching sessions

Mindset training with Coaching2Connect


All programming and communication will be designed and overseen by CGD coaches. An additional $250 will be added to the 20 Session Pro Program for the "Junior Mentorship" option. Some clients may already have formed a relationship with some of our Junior coaches from past camps and programs. If you wish you can identify up to 3 coaches you would prefer to work with. We will do our best to match you with your selection.
