Goaltending is the backbone of any good hockey team and also the backbone of the success of P.A.L. Ice Hockey/Jr Islanders. We continue to make goaltender development a top priority of our program, with several clinics and camps offered this summer, and with that in mind we are again thrilled to offer you Bob Bellemore's annual free goalie clinic held at the Rinx on August 26th
Bob Bellemore is one of the most highly-regarded athletes in Providence College history and is a former goalie coach of the New Jersey Devils. Over his long coaching career he has served as an assistant coach with the Providence College men's and women's ice hockey teams worked closely with USA Hockey as an instructor at the Olympic Training Center in Lake Placid, N.Y. His wealth of knowledge and experience is incredibly valuable and we can not stress enough the importance of your presence at this clinic. We encourage you to take advantage of this free clinic that Bellemore has again agreed to provide for the P.A.L./Jr Islanders program.
These are clinics designed exclusively for goalies with the intention to develop fundamental and advanced skills at every level. Each clinic will include a focus on mobility, stamina, playing the angles, situational decision making, rebound control, stance and movement, playing the puck and more. There will be goalie-focused skating drills, shooter stations and "The Goalie Anthem," which our young netminders will take with them into the coming season as a mental edge to go along with their developing skills.
The clinic will be held on Tuesday August 26th as follows:
Pee Wee (T1 Minor, T2 and T3), Squirt and Mite players on Aug. 26 from 1 p.m. to 2:25 p.m. at the Rinx.
Midget Tier 2, Bantam all Tiers and Pee Wee Major (T1) players on Aug. 26 from 2:35 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Rinx.
We ask that you sign up as early as possible to allow Coach Bellemore to understand the amount of goalies he will have to work with and then properly prepare for the clinics.
To sign up, please notify the coach of your team if you can or can not attend.
We look forward to seeing you there as we continue to build up our goalie corps into the best and most prepared in the region.
During the always busy and exciting Rookie Camp held every summer, the New York Islanders coaching staff took the time to sit and meet with the coaches from the PAL Junior Islanders.
Islanders coaches Jack Capuano, Doug Weight, Brent Thompson, Bob Corkum, and the rest of the staff held clinics for coaches at all levels in the PAL program. From Mites to Juniors, each PAL coach left the clinic with information to help their players develop. Each New York Islanders coach took it upon themselves to share their expertise in their own particular field, and gave out all of the same information that they would give their own NHL players. PAL coaches engaged in lively discussions with the NHL coaches in attempts to help their players grow and become the absolute best hockey players they can be.
We're proud and honored to be affiliated with the New York Islanders, and the entire PAL staff would like to once again thank the New York Islanders coaching staff for taking the time to share coaching tips and stories!
This summer, the PAL Junior Islanders are looking to bring the fans closer than ever to our team. Over the next few weeks, we'll be focusing on some of the players who have already signed on with the team to help everybody get to know the Islanders...Read the full story
