2017/18 Goalie Mentorship Program

Seven Oaks Sportsplex / Garden City Community Centre is pleased to be hosting another Goalie Mentorship session. The sessions will be led by former WHA Winnipeg Jet goalie Gordie Tumilson. Gordie has extensive instructional experience and he will also share his personal perspective to enlighten players, coaches and parents so that they have a better understanding of not only physical/technical aspects of the position but more importantly the mental demands of the position. As part of the program Gordie will also attend a game to observe and provide feedback to each goaltender.

More on Gordie past & present:
- Original ‘WHA’ Wpg Jet goalie
- Grew up at Northwood CC and Sisler high School
- U17 Hockey Canada ‘Program of Excellence’ [POE] goalie coach
- Ringette Manitoba - Canada Games goalie coach
- Presently individual player AAA / AA & High School teams [West Kildonan, Garden City & Sisler] goalie coach
- Years of extensive work with team coaches and parents – understanding goalies and the goalie position
- Mentoring professional goalies
- Cares about the kids…!

This sixteen-hour (8 week) camp will consist of eight one hour in class sessions followed by a one hour on ice session. This unique program will also offer parents and/or coaches the opportunity to participate in the classroom education. Program is open to both male and female goaltenders (hockey or ringette). Parents and coaches are strongly encouraged to attend these sessions with their goaltenders as significant insight into this special position is given.

Over the course of the eight week camp the classroom time will be used to establish a strong understanding of individual mental and technical aspects of the goaltender position and the on-ice time will be used to establish the physical skillset required to perform these skills. At the end of the program each participant will have a strong understanding of the mental and physical skills to take their game to the next level and prepare them for more advanced camps.
