August 9 – 13, 2021
Our Bridge Program is in its 9th year of developing the top Novice, Atom and Peewee Goaltenders from Atlantic Canada as well as Quebec and the United States. The program is by invitation only and will comprise two groups of 18. Again this year we will have 36 openings in the Program.
The Bridge Program is a scaled-down version and stepping stone to our High Intensity Program. Lead by Head Instructor and Memorial Cup Champion goalie coach Dave Kennedy, the Bridge program uses active shooters to simulate game situations, elite puck handling drills for today’s goalies, effective rebound control techniques as well as an emphasis on proper edge control and skating technique. Morning sessions are devoted to Skating and Puck Handling. The afternoon session is an hour and a half of shooting stations covering, breakaways, rebound control, active gloves, moving into shots, behind the netplay and squareness to the puck. Off-ice sessions will also be included daily, goalie specific drills, as well as other sports, will be hosted at the Charlie Bourgeois High Performance Training Center, a short walk from the Superior Propane Centre.
