MGHD Jr. Goaltender Instructor Program

 

At MGHD we believe that a great way for a player to improve their own skills is to teach younger players. 

When you teach a skill it becomes reinforced in your own mind and it becomes easier to do. 

Repetition is the key to learning and retaining a new skill. 

When people teach, they have to repeat specific movements or expressions over and over in order to demonstrate or explain it properly to a student. 

This is crucial to becoming a better player / person on and off the ice.

 

To become part of our Goaltender Instructor Training Program you must be at least 15 yrs old. 

Acceptance is not guaranteed.  An interview is required and approval will be based on certain required criteria.
