The Ron Mays Goaltending School runs camps on PA Days, over Christmas holidays, during March Break, and in the summer. Read below for more details and a registration link!
Week #1: July 16-20, 2018
Week #2: August 13-17, 2018
Once again, the Ron Mays Goaltending School is pleased to offer its Mentorship Camp for goaltenders of all ages and abilities.
Since its inception, the program has been a great success with mentor goalies such as Spencer Martin (Colorado Avalanche, Mississauga Steelheads), Ben Blacker (Western Michigan, NCAA), Drew Fielding (Adirondack, ECHL, St. Thomas University, NCAA), Chris Festarini (Niagara Ice Dogs, OHL), Christian Purboo (Oakville Blades, OJHL) and Adrian Volpe (Niagara Ice Dogs, OHL) participating.
The purpose of the Mentorship camp is to provide young, aspiring goalies not only with the opportunity to learn from experienced and knowledgeable instructors, but also the chance to train next to these highly-skilled and successful goaltenders throughout the week-long summer camp.
Working next to a mentor who can offer guidance, advice, and inspiration as well as demonstrate the qualities of hard work, discipline, sacrifice, and perseverance is critical to helping one reach their goals in the hockey world.
While having the opportunity to watch pro and junior goalies train is invaluable, there is no better experience than having the opportunity to train along with them, completing the same drills they do while trying to match their effort and intensity levels.
Head Instructor Ron Mays will oversee each camp with assistance from each mentor.
4 hours on ice per day (2 in the morning, 2 in the afternoon). This includes 3 hours of intense drills, a 30-minute goalie-specific skating and recovery session, and a 30-minute puck handling session each day.
3 goalies per net (1 mentor goalie and 2 students). The mentor goalie will complete each drill first and then provide the other students with guidance and feedback while they complete the same drill.
60-minute off-ice training session each day designed to enhance athleticism.
30-minute mental training session each day, providing valuable knowledge on how to become mentally tough and excel under pressure. Mentor goalies will also share their experiences and advice on enhancing confidence, maintaining focus, managing intensity levels, thriving under pressure, and becoming resilient.
15-minute daily stretching session to enhance flexibility.
This camp is open to goalies of any age and ability who desire to improve. Goalies will be placed in a group based on their age and skill level to provide for an optimal learning environment.
The demands placed on the students will be heavy. It is essential that each participant is intrinsically motivated with a strong desire to improve through hard work, and a willingness to listen and keep an open mind to instruction.
