Exposure & Development
Our National Camps were launched in the summer of 2012 to offer our elite goaltenders an opportunity to be exposed to a second to none coaching staff that represent high level hockey programs at a world class University facility.
Our mission is clear – bring together the best resources possible – to offer the best camp possible. It has long been GDI’s hallmark to develop new and improved programs and develop innovations within the position. These camps will enhance our student’s game through our staff’s vast knowledge and expertise. Unlike traditional goaltending camps, our curriculum is developed from many different approaches, philosophies, and styles.
Learn from a collection of ELITE Coaches and their unique approaches to the position. We look forward to partnering with you this summer as you work toward your developmental goals and career objectives.
Our National Camps are built on 3 primary purposes:
1. To enhance our students’ developmental approach.
