Expansion of Goaltender Development Program Overview
Northwestern Hockey is proud to announce the expansion of our highly successful goalie development program. Starting with the 2013/14 season, the number of professionally instructed in-season goalie clinics has been increased from 4 to 6. These clinics will be available to all full-time travel goalies free of charge. Also, in order to attract and retain the best goalie talent in the area, there will be NO TRYOUT FEES for any full-time goalie that wishes to attend our tryouts. Finally, all full-time Travel goaltenders for the Squirt, Peewee and Bantam teams (max 2 goalies per team) will receive a 50% DISCOUNT OFF THE SEASON FEES. We are excited to be able to continue to foster the growth and development of both our players and goalies, encouraging them to be the best they can be both on and off the ice.
We‘d like to make sure you are aware of the CHC initiative, GottaLoveCTHockey, a new venture that puts a friendly face on youth hockey in CT. Each week two CHC programs are highlighted and players, coaches, parents and fans are interviewed. Episodes are released weekly on Wednesday, and usually are 5-6 minutes long.
We’d like to encourage all players and parents to check out GottaLoveCTHockey (www.gottalovecthockey.org). Information is available on the website about signing up for the weekly emails, as well as other great information about hockey in CT. GottaLoveCTHockey can also be found on Facebook (gotta love ct hockey) and Twitter (GottaLoveCTHcky).
