Western Valley Goalie Development by 10-D Goaltending offers development for all levels and abilities. Whether your child is new to the position, recreational goaltender or competitive B-AA.

Development training is done during 10 sessions throughout the season, and split into two groups within those sessions.

Groups are determined by where the goaltender is at developmentally, not by age, as each goaltender develops at their own individual pace.

The 430-530 time will always be reserved for the Fundamentals Development Group. This group's focus is to build and strengthen their goaltending foundation. Priority is put on foundational edge work, stance, basic moments and mechanics, glove work, understanding of crease area/angles and puck tracking.

The 545-645 time will always be reserved for the Intermediate and Advanced Development Group who are demonstrating and showing a strong understanding of their foundations. This group's focus is set on the growth and development past their foundational ability and understanding. It is meant to challenge and build upon their abilities, as to not stunt the growth of each individual goaltender’s development. A higher sense of understanding, pace of movement and theory of goaltending is put to the test through high tempo training and education. A goaltender's edge work, save selection and mechanics will all be put to the test at every session, to challenge their abilities and to continue their growth and development.

Because this program is being run at no cost to the individual goalies, there is no registration through WVMHA/GrayJay Pay. All you need to do is attend the ice times! If you are unsure which group would be best suited for your goaltender, please contact Chris MacInnis at
