Goaltending Coach Development Program Structure


Coaches, board members and volunteers,
Below is information on the new Goalie Coach Development Program and on our Dave Peterson HP Symposium on
July 21 – 22 at Kent State.
Please invite all organizational coaches. We hope to have at least one coach on each staff to participate in some goalie coach development.
The bronze level courses will be hosted in the fall in Pittsburgh, Columbus and another location to be determined.

Introducing USA Hockey’s new Goalie Coach Development Program which works in conjunction with its Coaching Education Program (CEP) to give coaches at every level the opportunity to hone their goalie-teaching skills.

“We’ve created a Goalie Coach Development Program that has three levels,” said Phil Osaer, USA Hockey’s American Development Model manager for goaltending. “It’s sort of like an elective system within the CEP, with the goal that every team in the United States has at least one coach on the staff having gone through some goalie coach development.”

MidAm will host a HP Silver Level Goalie Symposium in conjunction with their Goaltending Development Camp on July 21 – 22 at Kent State.  Coaches who complete this symposium will go up one level within the CEP program excluding to a level 4 or 5. Coaches who have completed the Bronze Level as well as a 2 day symposium will be awarded Silver Level Goaltending Development Coach status.  These coaches will get a chance to work with top MidAm Goaltenders under the supervision and guidance of USA Hockey Goaltender Development Coordinators at the Symposium.
