GDS offers the area’s best private and semi-private instruction at three locations: Hooksett, NH, North Andover, MA and our newest location, the Ice House in Hackensack, NJ. Weekly lessons develop the foundation for an impenetrable goaltending force through structured progressive development. Mike Buckley's system brings out the best in each goaltender through well-structured, challenging and fun drills.
How We Train At GDS, we believe in the personal development of each student. Developing a confident mind is just as critical as physical development in creating a decisive, elite goaltender. We begin our training with a consultation to learn more about each student. GDS coaches establish a relationship with each and every student, setting specific goals and attacking each goal throughout the season. On the ice we focus the six core fundamentals of goaltending: Skating, stance, positioning, save selection, rebound control and recovery. GDS coaching creates a strong technical base complemented by a focus on an athletic, unbounded style of play. This allows goaltenders to develop their own style based on their strengths, resulting in quick efficient movements and confidence in their game. Video is used in every session from multiple camera angles to visually demonstrate form, speed and balance.
We are now registering for in-season private and semi-private training for the 2015-2016 Season!!
