It’s is time to announce our annual mentoring program, which will be open for 4-6 goalie coaches that will be selected based on their applications. Program in a nutshell consists following:

  • You will work with Goaliepro to generate a “white paper” on topic approved by Goaliepro. This will be naturally technique / goalie training related. Work for the paper will start right away and we hope that you will have yours finished in July 2012. Goaliepro / Jukka Ropponen will be mentoring and helping you in creation of the paper.
  • You also need to create a storyboard for the photos and videos that need to be shot for your white paper. Goaliepro will provide professional help and create the materials with you based on the approved storyboard.
  • Your paper will be published at Goaliepro website and naturally you will also have rights to publish it at your own website etc.
  • Main event and the heart of the program is Goaliepro’s main camp June 4-8 @ Espoo, Finland where you will be working with Goaliepro’s trained staff. During the week you will work with several different coaches and topics & learn their drills and methods.
  • During the week you will also have a chance to be on the ice helping with Goaliepro’s pro workout’s while we are working with goalies like Niklas Bäckström (Minnesota), Bernd Bruckler (Sibir/KHL) etc…
  • Goaliepro will provide you the mentoring, training, Goaliepro’s coaches annual “clothing package”, lunches and Friday night coaches dinner event.
  • Send your application to leirit(at) and remember to include your hockey CV, personal information and a description why you want to be part of this program along with proposal for possible white paper topics you would like to work on.
