The Goalie Club offers various Mini Camps in Minnesota and Montana throughout the year, as well as the Annual Holiday Camp at Shattuck St. Mary’s.

The Goalie Club Goalie School, under the direction of nationally renowned goaltending Coach Des Christopher, has been training quality goaltenders for over 15 years. Coach Des and his staff have trained over a 1000 goalies from Mite to Pro.

Our programs feature unique training levels (Fundamental, Situational, Verge, Prodigy, Junior/College/Pro) that are only available through TGC. To learn about these training levels before making a decision on your camp selection, visit the Training Levels link.

Hi Coach, Thanks again for bringing such a great clinic to Missoula, and to provide some feedback. I was asking in the locker room what the kids thought, and the comments ranged from “amazing” to “the best goalie clinic I’ve ever been to”, and from my perspective, I learned some valuable fundamentals that I’ll definitely incorporate into our goalie development at practices (sealing the short side, stick positioning in the reverse VH, chest positioning to name a few). Also, Coach John came up to me afterwards and said that he was watching you teach the exit strategy after stopping the puck behind the net, and he commented how he’d never seen that in all his years and how much sense it made, and I completely agree.
