Who wants to get better at goalie?!
Welcome to the sixth Goalie University camp, where Southern California's goalies take part in an intensive on-ice, off-ice, and video analysis training program. At this five-day camp, we combine technical innovations to goaltending with an analysis of game situations to help you hone your puck-stopping skills before the season starts.
Coach Danny Vitale has crafted a camp curriculum that applies to goalies across all ages and skill levels while also focusing on the particularities of each individual goalie's game. He comes staffed with trained, experienced goalie coaches and high-level shooters to keep the pace high and the coaching constant.
Space is limited! We cap at 18 to ensure goalies get the reps necessary to get better. Make sure to save your spot in the box below.
All ages and skill levels are welcome. No goalie is too good or too new to be on the ice with any other!
9:45 a.m. - 10:45 a.m. On-Ice (Skating-focused)
11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Off-Ice (Goalie-specific strength and agility)

Summer 2018 GU Camp
June 25-29 at Los Angeles Kings Valley Ice Center
Welcome to the Goalie University Valley Summer Camp!
Once tryout season has ended and you've taken a moment to relax, what are you going to do to stay sharp over the summer?
At GU, we'll keep you focused and keep your skills finely tuned so that you can be ready to impress when next season rolls around.
With two one-hour on-ice sessions, two hours of off-ice training, and an hour of film and tactics discussion each day, our staff of GU-certified coaches give you the tools to take your game to the next level.
It's pretty simple what we ask of our goalies: 100% effort, all the time. But we don't just focus on the fundamentals of goaltending. After all, we're coaching people. Character counts at GU, and there's no substitute for the right attitude - perseverance, humility, a willingness to learn.
SPACE IS LIMITED! We cap at 21 to ensure that every goaltender gets the reps necessary to improve.
Reach out to email@example.com with inquiries.
I look forward to seeing you there!
December 2017 GU Camp
At the first-ever Goalie University Holiday Camp, 18 goaltenders from Southern California came together in hopes of bettering their game and themselves.
According to each of them, they succeeded.
As a coach, the greatest pleasure is seeing our goalies of every age — our youngest, 9, our oldest, 59 — learn from one another, push each other, and relish their time on the ice — and even in the gym.
I believe that passion drives greatness. Every goaltender at the camp signed up of their own volition. They wanted to be there. And those who continue to work the hardest — because they love the game — will achieve great things.
Hockey has opened up so many doors, led me on so many paths I never knew possible, and this past camp is only the most recent. Surely one of the highlights of my hockey life, I look forward to organizing and coaching the next GU camp — because I love helping goalies get better.
See you at the next one!
On Ice Training
Goalie On Ice Training
At the GU Holiday Camp, goalies will partake in one on-ice hour of skating and technical training and one on-ice hour of in-game situations.
Our staff of goalie coaches and elite shooters make sure that every goalie receives the attention necessary to keep their habits constant and their intensity high. Off-ice workouts entail goalie-specific exercises that work muscles many young goalies may not even know they had. It won't be easy, but it will be fun - and it's sure to make you better.
Classroom and video sessions are a great chance to learn the theoretical aspects of the position and hone your mental game. We'll talk through different situations and preparation tactics in an interactive learning environment.
