Mastering the Discipline of Goaltending
Requires
Confidence and Skill

Our Profile Based Training philosophy is based on a foundation of four Deliberate Training Strategies 

Through our four Deliberate Training Strategies our training process will implement standardized development guidelines.

This teaching method will guide the student to progressively improve ‘Crease Control’ skills and will cultivate ‘Winner Within’ confidence by encouraging them to continuously activate the Actions of Discipline in a training environment that places primary value on the safe and gradual growth towards mastering in-game ARC3 Performance.

The student will receive reinforced teaching from defined Deliberate Training Strategies that will provide positive and constructive feedback with the objective of achieving cumulative improvement for sustainable development.

It is from a training system that focuses on gradual progression and personal growth that our students can discover their ‘Winner Within’ that empowers them by knowing they have put in the maximum focus and effort to be the best they can be and are proud of their achievements.

1) Training Profile

Training Profiles are levels of development that will that determine the training focus appropriate to the student’s stage of development needs.

Fundamental Level – students who are building the technical framework of their fundamental skills and require ‘Isolate’ and ‘Control’ training speeds to improve their Athletic Structure for skill progression

Advance Level – students who demonstrate competent mechanics along with capable physical qualities required to challenge skill progression at a ‘Dynamic’ training speed

Elite Level – students who demonstrate proficient mechanics along with strong physical qualities required to challenge skill progression at a ‘Dynamic’ and ‘Reaction’ training speed

2) Training Phases

Training Phases are the stages of development that align with the Profiles and will guide the training focus. The stage of development will take into consideration the student’s chronological age, physical development and history of training experience.

Beginner stage (Fundamental Level) – Exploring and discovering the basic techniques in a safe and fun environment

Intermediate 1 stage (Fundamental Level) – Learning and understanding each technical skills towards constructing fundamental effectiveness through skill repetition

Intermediate 2 stage (Fundamental Level) – Refining technical execution and developing mechanical efficiency through the bridging of technical skills with repetition of controlled transitional movement

Competent stage (Advance Level) – Reinforcing structure and mechanics of the technical skills and advance the drills towards improving tactical execution

Proficient stage (Elite Level)– Challenge the ability to process Reads in order to execute with Tactical Purpose in performance focused drills

3) Training Speed

Training Speed is the scaling of drills that are adjusted according to the student’s improvement needs and will be applied according to the stage of development that will improve and challenge skill progression.

Isolate Training Speed – An ‘Isolate’ Training speed approach slows down the skill execution to target the development of one ore more execution keys. This will encourage the Fundamental Level students to apply the mental engagement necessary when training with conscious focus.

Control Training Speed – A ‘Control’ training speed approach encourages the student to stay connected to the ‘continuous bridging’ through the ‘whole skill’ when executing the mechanics of a single technique with efficiency and control.

Dynamic Training Speed – A ‘Dynamic’ training speed approach challenges ‘crease transitions’ with ‘multiple skills’. The student is not applying conscious mental measurement of the ‘whole skill’ but rather maintaining controlled transitional movement while balancing acceleration with mechanical efficiency and control.

Reaction Training Speed – A ‘Reaction’ training speed approach constructively pushes the student’s Crease Control Qualities of Composure Command and Compete . With the use of ‘replicated shooter option game situations’ the student will be challenged to develop the vision needed to Read, Process and Execute.

4) Training Platforms

Training Platforms are the various training resources that best fit the student’s training plan and provides the best format according to their schedule and training profile.

The Profile Based Training Process will cultivate the student’s confidence by progressing the training to meet their age and stage of development.
