About - Offseason Goalie Development

Nexus offers an elite offseason hockey goalie development program, prioritizing personalized training for optimal results.

Our approach revolves around one-on-one private on-ice sessions with experienced goalie coaches, focusing on refining technical skills such as stance, positioning, and save techniques.

 

To further enhance game situational awareness, we integrate cutting-edge technology like Sense Arena, a VR goalie development software that provides an immersive in-game feel. This innovative tool allows goalies to practice and refine their skills in a virtual environment, replicating real-game scenarios. Whether on real or synthetic ice, Sense Arena offers a unique and effective training experience.

 

This combination of individualized on-ice training and modern VR programming ensures goalies receive a comprehensive development plan tailored to their specific needs, ultimately elevating their performance to new heights.

Start - April | June 

Offseason Programs will run on Monday nights primarily (unless otherwise scheduled)

Duration will be 12-16 weeks based on programming designed by coach.
