The Eli Wilson Difference
If you’ve been looking for the best goaltending school on planet earth, look no further.
Our promise to our goaltenders is to provide nothing but the best in every area. Our coaches and shooters will all have experience of playing at a high level. From the moment the camp begins, you will be treated as a professional. You will receive your CCM jersey, Under Armour apparel package, and your New Era Eli Wilson Goaltending hat at registration. The schedule for the week will be followed precisely to establish a proper routine. Two shooters at each station will ensure that our goaltenders face hard and accurate shots. Our coaches will not be shooting; they are there to help the goaltenders and control the shooters. We focus on progression of the entire group of goaltenders, pulling from the top and pushing from the bottom to maximize improvements. Each drill will begin with a demo performed by a WHL goaltender, followed by an in-depth, yet brief explanation of the details by Eli. None of our drills will be simulated. They will all be with live and controlled shooters. Our philosophy is that the time spent by goaltenders practicing the movement or save is 100% more valuable than the time spent talking about it. Our drills will be purposefully executed with an intense pace, and our coaches and shooters will be pushing you to be at your best every single rep. After you’re a session, you will experience our new office program, designed specifically for goaltending skill development. We often see other off-ice programs that are too physically demanding and take away from the on-ice portion of the camp. Our program has been designed and executed by goaltenders and is strictly for functional movement and skill training.
Our food is guaranteed to be nutritious. We will always provide a solid, a pasta, protein, vegetables, and a platter of fresh fruit. We will not provide sugary, unhealthy foods or drinks. We will also ensure that our athletes with allergies will receive a catered dish; just make sure to inform a member of our staff.
At the end of the day, you will have a safe and secure space to leave your gear overnight. We promise to provide an atmosphere that is highly competitive, yet positive and fun. We want you to be the best you possibly can. In summary, here is a list of things you will see at our camps, and a list of things you will not see at our camps.
You will see:
professional, experienced coaches, high level shooters, proper net pegs, high quality jerseys and apparel, two shooters and a coach at each station, WHL demo goaltenders, proper progression of drills that work to develop goaltenders, a strong off-ice program with no filler, clean and high quality facilities, more than enough nutritious food and sports drinks, and most importantly, vast improvements in your game.
You will not see:
unprofessional staff not communicating with the goaltenders, lazy staff or shooters, simulated drills, coaches shooting on goaltenders, props being used on the ice, cheap meals, a slow pace, jerseys that will be thrown away after the camp, low quality apparel that won’t be worn again, off-ice programs with no purpose or proper coaching, ice sessions with no shooters in order for us to save money, and very little improvement from the goaltenders.
There are goaltending schools that are considered good, there are some that are considered better, but there is only one that is the worldwide leader in goaltending development and is truly the best.
Don’t get left behind.
Sign up for our camps and watch your game go from good, to better, to the best.
