Gain the Edge!

Great goalies are not born, they are trained.

About Netminders North

Small, Focussed Groups


Our philosophy is that goalies (in fact, all players) develop better skills and develop them more quickly when they train as part of a small, focussed group. Individual players can easily be overlooked in larger groups. We want every goalie who trains with us to get the benefit of our expertise focussed on their particular abilities.

Every Goalie, An Individual


We recognize that every goalie who comes to us for assistance is an individual, with his/her own special abilities, strengths and weaknesses. We take pride in ensuring that each goalie gets personalized attention and instruction. We want each goalie to build a solid foundation unique to themselves upon which to build a career.

Goalies Stop Pucks!


That's what they do. So a goalie coming to train with us can expect superior instruction in all aspects of netminding, and above all, to face a lot of pucks. They are training to stop pucks, and they get ample opportunity to do so.
