Illinois West High School Hockey League will again host a pre-season Goalie clinic for all West goalies at All Seasons Ice Arena. The clinic will be held for four evenings starting Monday, July 23rd through Thursday, July 26th from 6:40PM – 8:40PM each evening.
As begun last year, the clinic will consist of both on-ice and off-ice sessions each evening. All goalies from Illinois West are allowed to participate. The clinic is provided by the League at no cost to the participants. As is our practice, many of the coaches are past Illinois West goalies who are now playing in the college ranks. Pat Meek from Good as Gould Goalie School will manage the clinic with many experienced coaches to assist at each station. This will be the 9th year the Goalie clinic has been provided by West.
If space allows, West will accept other, non-West, high school goalies to participate at a cost of $300 for the clinic. Please send your sign up request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our member teams participate by providing shooters each evening allowing the on-ice coaches to work directly with the goalies. The clinics have been extremely successful and the goalies consistently request that we hold the clinic each summer. Goalies who participate head into fall tryouts confident and ready to go.
We look forward to another fantastic clinic this summer and a great 2018-2019 high school hockey season.
