Greetings from Rochester, NY - 11th Annual Clinic

Postby Cubanpuckstopper » Fri Jul 29, 2011 1:11 am

Actually I am in Binghamton, NY, home of the AHL champs.

I will arrive in Rochester Friday for the 10th annual Rochester Goalie Clinic to be held at the Skating Institute of Rochester

Here is the thread by Jukka that started the tradition.

Updated for our 11th year.

I am just settling in at the workplace after a great summer tradition in Rochester, three days of excellent instruction from Yona and his staff.

Highlights from this year were
-11.5 hours of ice.
- 6 stations
- lots of focus on footwork/movement
- excellent shooters from McQuaid Jesuit College Prep hockey team
- great camaraderie

Some images below

The whole gang

The icepack on Yona's head is not because we frustrated him, rather a shot off the crossbar then off the noggin did the damage.

More to follow as other images become available.

Thanks for posting. That clinic is always a fun (and beneficial) event.

Are you sure that photo of Yona is not a day after festivities one :-)

Here is a video of the end of clinic shootout.

I was at the other end of the rink getting eliminated when this was shot. A local Rochester goalie took the title this year.

Now in its 12th year, held on July 26th - 28th.

I am two weeks late getting these posted (too many vacationers at the work place to catch on goalie postings).

Even with many new instructors, new shooters, and new participants, this was a success.

We even added some dryland this season

What goalies look like after 11 hours of ice, in less than 48 hours.
