Find Goaltending Development Coordinators Near You

USA Hockey’s goaltending coach-in-chiefs and development coordinators serve USA Hockey districts and affiliates locally while also forming a nationwide network tasked with enhancing grassroots goalie development in the United States.

The coordinators’ multifaceted duties include providing try goalie for free events to grow goalie participation, meeting with clubs and associations coaches to implement goalie training curriculum within their practices, leading goaltending evaluations at USA Hockey’s affiliate and district national camp tryouts, and providing affiliate and district goaltending development camps. Each coordinator has been nominated by a USA Hockey affiliate.
