The Northstar goalie program includes special small group instruction and evaluation, agility/skill coaching, fun and exciting goalie games, coaches talks and demonstrations, and a great instructional staff.

Our staff works together to craft high-quality reps, all while delivering expert advice and contagious motivation to every goalie involved. We believe in having fun along with breaking down complicated looks into small pieces, and teaching goalies how to compete-with and support each other at the same time.

Northstar strives to build a community of Goalies who come to be a part of something bigger than themselves, and leave as better individuals.
