All Development Camps follow the same schedule: Two 90-minute ice sessions Two Mental performance sessions with Dr. Jason Emery Proactive Video Session Reactive Video preceding the second ice session Vision Training Classroom Instructional Session Yoga Session 3:1 Goaltender to Coach Ratio
These camps are designed with the busy parent and/or camper in mind. Goaltenders train on the ice for two hours each day. Evening Camp coaches are the very same staff who runs our Development Camps with a coach to camper ratio of no less than 3:1.
Goaltender specific vision training will also be included in the Evening Camps.
This summer's Elite Week will once again be held at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, CT. Developed and targeted for campers in prep school and older, Elite Week provides an extraordinary opportunity for attendees to train alongside NCAA Division I coaches and players as well as professional goaltenders including Andy Iles, Michael Garteig and Steve Michalek (scheduled to attend). The shooting staff is composed of Division I, III and professional players.
The Elite Week coaching staff is second to none and includes Michael Ayers from Boston College, Brian Eklund from Boston University, David Lassonde from Dartmouth College, Kris Mayotte from Providence College, Matt Michno from the University of Connecticut, Scott Munroe from Trinity College, Matthew Millar from the Dubuque Fighting Saints (USHL), Brennan Poderzay from Minnesota State University (all scheduled to attend) and more!
Campers must meet certain criteria based on age and skill level to attend.
Inaugural Women's Camp
From June 25th - 28th, Pro Crease Goaltending will hold its second annual Women's Camp dedicated solely to female goaltenders. Top women's coaches as well as professional and collegiate players will comprise our staff. Edith Racine from Cornell University, Tara Connolly from R.P.I. and Sydney Rossman (Connecticut Whale) from the N.W.H.L. will lead this specialized four-day camp to be held at Newington Ice Arena in Newington, CT. The camp is intended to further develop female players whether they play on an all girls team or with boys. Several special guest speakers are also scheduled to attend including a past Gold Medal winning member of the U.S. Olympic Team as well as Performance Enhancement Coach Dr. Jason Emery. This camp will run from 5:00 - 8:40pm to accommodate those goaltenders who may still be in school or have daytime commitments.
The Frozen 72
Our second ever Frozen 72 Hour Camp will take place on the beautiful campus of the University of New England located in Biddeford, ME. We are intentionally limiting the size of this camp in order to provide a premier goaltending camp experience for those attending. Toward that end, we will take 16 highly committed goaltenders (U15 - NCAA) to the University of New England for 72 hours of an extremely specific and individualized goaltending camp experience. A close ratio of coaches to students will insure 72 hours of an outstanding and safe experience.
Exclusive Sports Vision Training
Coach's Eye is the world's leading video platform for coaches and athletes who need to review athlete technique and game film. Pro Crease Goaltending will be utilizing Coach's Eye at all Development Camps. Each camper will receive their video via e-mail after each day's session enabling them to have a record of all the drills utilized throughout the week that they can then use during the upcoming season.
Special goaltending specific vision training will take place at all Pro Crease Goaltending Summer Camps. This off-ice vision training is intended for goaltenders to "take home" so they can replicate the drills and exercises taught on their own throughout the entire season.
Mental Performance Coaching
Dr. Jason Emery, Clinical Psychologist and Performance Enhancement Coach, works with campers to develop skills and techniques to tackle the mental, emotional and psychological side of the game by cultivating resiliency and a growth mindset, improving focus and concentration, and creating the Optimal Performance Zone (OPZ). Learn how to take control of anxiety and stress, improve confidence and motivation, overcome performance plateaus and burnout, work through various forms of adversity and pressure, and much, much more.
