Elite Concepts Goalie Training offers clinics, camps, private lessons, consultation and team coaching and evaluation services. We are based in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and we offer instruction in a variety of western US and Canadian locations.
Truly great goalies each have a special something. Elite Concepts is founded on the belief that while certain movement patterns and technical skills make goaltending easier, and while styles of play and points of emphasis may change, the most successful goalies are the ones who can combine individual athletic strengths with technical mastery across styles, who can read, react, and influence situations in real time, and who see save selections as simply tools to stop the puck. Goaltending is simple - keep the puck in front of you.
With extensive goalie coaching experience working with some of the best coaches and experience both playing and coaching at the prep school, college, and professional level in North America and Europe, we've seen it all!
