 Comprehensive Programs

The Peak Performance Goalie School is designed to make great goalies exceptional
and to bring novice goalies up to a competitive level.

What to Expect:

On the first day of camp, goalies are evaluated by age, experience, and ability before being assigned to one of a dozen or so skill groups. Over the next few days, during both morning and afternoon sessions, each group proceeds through a variety of stations which combine to teach all phases of goalie play. This rotation includes: straight-on shooting, angle shots, bounce shots, defending ball-behind situations, point blank shots, free-position shots (for girls), clearing and communication. At several of these stations, goalies are videotaped making plays on the ball. They then have the immediate opportunity to sit down with a coach who helps them analyze their habits and style. All goalies receive their own personal DVD and copies of the coach's written comments to take home. Every evening, goalies participate in Peak's famous "Goalie Sevens" tournament. These are 7-on-7 games, played on short fields, in which the players use their goalie sticks to develop additional confidence in open field play. This is a camp favorite, with organized teams and assigned coaches competing in a fun, tournament-like atmosphere. Campers also enjoy informative presentations and question-and-answer sessions with some of the best college and national team goalies of recent years. Because we are committed to a 4-1 camper-to-staff ratio, all goalies receive maximum attention, supervision, and support. A certified trainer is on duty 24 hours a day.
