What did you do this summer? Raise your blocker if you visited 2 countries, 7 cities in 10 weeks, spent 50 days on the ice and 64 days on the road, trained 600 goalies and travelled 7,000 miles and 11,000 kilometers.
That was the summer of 2014 for Eli Wilson and his team. And in between all of those camps, Eli also managed to work in one-on-one sessions with NHL goalies like Carey Price, James Reimer, Ray Emery, Robin Lehner, Devan Dubnyk and Thomas McCollum. Also WLHL level goalies like Eric Comrie, Stuart Skinner, and Ryan Kubic.
Now instead of taking a break, it’s time to plan the 2014-15 winter and summer camps.
Two new cities and two new types of camps are planned for next year.
Calgary, Alberta and Kelowna, BC will join Detroit, Denver, Toronto (2 camps), Edmonton (4 camps), Lloydminster and Saskatoon (2 camps) and on Eli’s 2014-15 Winter-Summer tour.
Two very cool new camps are planned for goalies at both ends of their development spectrum. Until now Eli Wilson has offered two types of camps. The standard camp is open to goaltenders of all ages and levels, while the Elite Prospects camp is an invitation-only camp for Midget AAA and above goaltenders. Once again both will happen in 2015.
NEW HIGH PERFORMANCE 5-DAY CAMP As some of Eli’s students have progressed to the elite levels of their associations, they have asked for a more intense pro-level program. So next summer goaltenders at the Bantam AAA, Midget AA and AAA and Junior levels can join Eli for a new High Performance 5-day Camp in Lloydminster, Alberta. Much like the Elite Prospects Camp, the High Performance Camp will include pro-style training with high repetition, regimented progression of step-by-step learning, and top shooters from Midget AAA and higher. With 3 ½ hours of daily on-ice instruction and two daily classroom sessions, you’ll master the movements today’s professional goaltenders need to know. You’ll also learn goaltending theory, sports psychology, mental training, equipment, yoga stretching, and nutrition. Because this camp is so intense, dinner is included each afternoon to maximize your learning time. This camp will be limited to just 18 goalies to allow a 3:1 instructor ratio, and you must be playing at the Bantam AAA, Midget AA, AAA, Junior or higher level to attend. You can secure your spot with a $400 deposit on the camp price of $1695 + tax.
NEW INTRODUCTORY 5-DAY CAMP Eli Wilson Goaltending has crafted a new 5-day camp specifically for beginning goaltenders. Young goalies seldom receive this level of instruction. The Introductory Camp in Edmonton is for Novice and Atom goalies, and will feature two hours of ice each day with a daily classroom session and a 4:1 instructor ratio. The on-ice progression of learning will deliver amazing results through the same high-repetition step-by-step process that Eli teaches elite goaltenders. Off the ice, goalies will learn warm-up routines to prevent injury, mental preparation, goaltending theory, yoga instruction, and nutritional guidance. This is a young goaltender’s dream opportunity to learn from the top goaltending instructor in the world.This camp is limited to 32 goalies and is just $575 + tax. You can reserve your spot with a $100 deposit. The shooters at this camp with be Midget AA and above in order to give young goalies exposure to strong shooters and accelerate their development.
Make this season the best one yet, and then hit the ice next summer with Eli Wilson and prepare yourself for quantum growth at the game you love.
