Development Coordinators

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

The coordinators’ multifaceted duties include educating local goalie coaches, meeting with clubs and associations to implement goalie training curriculum and leading USA Hockey’s student goaltending coach programs. Each coordinator was nominated by a USA Hockey affiliate.

  • Educate and facilitate clubs and associations in implementing a Goaltending Development Curriculum. Including providing Coaching Coaches Clinics, coaching materials and support. 
  • Develop and cultivate relationships with goaltending coaches within the affiliate. Create a database and remain in contact with the goalie coaches, sharing ideas and information on goaltending development. 
  • Work with club and association goalie coaches on improving goaltending culture. Focus on head coach and assistant coach integration into goalie coaching at team practices and goalie sessions. 
  • Train and assist association goalie coaches on season planning and goalie clinic structure and organization. 
  • Provide support and facilitate grass roots programs (Try Goalie Days, Association Coaching Coaches Clinics, and Quick Change Pads). 
  • Assist District Coach-In-Chief when needed in all facets of the Coach Education Program as it pertains to goaltending. 
  • Attend annual meeting to collaborate and build on Goaltending Development Model. Meeting location and curriculum will be announced each year at the USAH Winter meetings. 
  • Collaborate with other goalie coaches to continue professional development. 
  • Remain focused on the principles of long term athlete development.
