Program Overview:


This (10) week program provides an opportunity for players to work on skating, stick handling, passing, and shooting skills, making use of short video clips of the skills to explain how each one is performed so that you can learn and improve successfully.  At the beginning of each week, players will receive web links to 2 hockey skill videos to study before they hit the ice each Friday so that they can come to the rink with an understanding of how to do the skills and then practice them properly on the ice.  Each Friday session will follow the following format:


  • Warm-up and forward skating stride development (5 min.)
  • 1st skill development section
  • 2nd skill development section
  • 3rd skill development section
  • Scrimmage (5 min.)

The BCHL is excited to launch a Goalie Development Program this season led by Goaltending Coach Tim Barker.

Under the direction of BCHL/Slingshots Goaltending Coach Tim Barker, BCHL will be implementing for the 2018/2019 season a dedicated “in-house” goalie development program for House League and Select (Slingshot) goalies.

The goal of this program is to support the goaltenders in our league and provide them with continued instruction in a fun and positive environment that will allow them to not only progress effectively as goaltenders but also as teammates.

Using a variety of learning aids (puck shooting machine, balance sticks, goalie shooting blind) we will primarily focus our development training on the following:

  • Skating / Footwork
  • Balance
  • Reflexes
  • Rebound Control
  • Stick Use
  • Positional Awareness
  • Focus/Concentration

Our 1st goalie skate is on Saturday September 8th from 3-4pm at the BMC. This skate is open to all BCHL/Slingshot goalies playing in Atom, Peewee, Bantam and Midget age groups.

Registration fee is $20

The purpose of this initial session is to get the goalies back on their skates. They will be taken through some light stretching exercises, skating drills and take some shots.

If you intend to join us please contact Wendy Godmere ( so we have an idea of the number of goalies we can expect to participate at this initial skate.
