Demons Goalie Training

We are looking for current and aspiring goaltenders - Mites through Bantams!

We are expanding the Demons Goaltender Development and Training Program. The Demons are offering free goaltender specific training every to registered Demons players on Tuesday at Northstar Rink B from 7:30 PM to 8:30 PM.

The goaltender is a key part of every hockey team. We strongly encourage new players to try the position and existing players to continually improve their development.

Currently Demons Goalies primarily train during regular team practices and as a goalie advances the Demons offer StopIt Goaltender Training. StopIt Goaltending Training is a specialized program conducted weekly at New England Sports Center. While this is an excellent program there are space limitations.

To encourage new goaltenders and support existing goaltenders the Demons program will begin weekly dedicated goaltender training. The program will start by evaluating each individual goalie, track their progress, offer skill level specific drills, provide real-time feedback, and be an ongoing resource for  Demons Goalie questions related to the position.

The program, with support from our coaching staff will be led by the Demons Program Director, Phil Iantosca who was a collegiate goaltender and has an extensive knowledge of the position.

Prospective and active goaltenders at all levels, Mites through Bantams, are encouraged to participate. At this time we are asking that any interested players register through the Demons Registration Webpage. Once the number of participants has been determined the goalies will be assigned to groups based on age/skill level and a formal practice schedule will be issued. We anticipate that each group will practice once every two or three weeks. Depending on a player's group assignment the first practice could be as soon as Tuesday, November 6. We will reach out to registered players directly to confirm availability.

We ask that all interested players register before Sunday November  11, 2018 after which time the practice schedule will be issued.

Please feel free to contact Phil Iantosca ( ) or Rob Harris ( ) with any questions. The Demons Coaching Staff is very much looking forward to helping our goaltenders reach their potential.
