    The new website is a great start. I did had to play a little to find my around but it’s all good now. I would suggest using a Paypal account to receive payments.

    Two things:

    1. What opportunities do the goalies in Development Camps have to do off ice workouts and other activities during the half day they are not on the ice?

    2. I would be interested in your views as coaches of the drastic differences in styles the remaining goalies in NHL playoffs have.

      Thanks for the feedback, Scott! We are currently exploring convenient payment options for clients and hope to find a suitable solution in the near future.

      We are happy to answer your questions:

      1) Our Development Camp program is very comprehensive and teaches goaltenders how to improve their game on and off the ice. Our off-ice training program is designed to develop better athletes. We focus on areas such as strengthening core muscles, improving flexibility and agility, and then demonstrate how improving in these areas relates to on-ice performance. Furthermore, our staff discusses nutrition and elements of sports psychology so that players understand that the work that goes into being an elite goaltender starts long before the puck is dropped.

      2) Hockey fans have been treated to exceptional goaltending all season long. You’re right; the remaining goaltenders in the National Hockey League playoffs have very different styles of play. Each goaltender plays within a certain style and team system that enables their success. As you know, goaltenders are unique and should be trained so that they can showcase their natural athletic abilities and strong technical skills. We are working on some blog posts that illustrate these points and we encourage you to check back in to this section of the website. Also, you may also want to check out the articles that Eli has written for thehockeywriters.com. He shared some interesting views about Jonathan Quick, Martin Brodeur and Pekka Rinne.

      If you have any further questions, please let us know!

    Thanks for the reply. Baxter is looking forward to the development camp doing lots of circuit training this off season.
