* Registration form at the bottom *

Run specifically for the girls and women goaltenders looking to improve their game and to learn from the best women goaltenders in the game. The Student-Teacher ratio is very low and groups will be limited to ensure that each goaltender receives individualized attention. As a goaltender on Canada's National Team for 10 years, Sami Jo Small brings her expertise and knowledge, along with will many qualified instructors, to provide young women goaltenders with mentors and role models in a fun environment.

Hockey School Itinerary

Two ice sessions per day + two off-ice sessions per day. Full days, approx 9am-4pm. Girls will be supervised all day and assistance in getting dressed in their hockey equipment will be available for the younger groups.

On Ice

Athletes will have two ice times a day. There will be a one hour "movement" session where we will work on the fundamentals of goaltending including skating, slides, angles, glove positioning and playing the puck. There will also be a two hour "Stations" session where goalies will be in groups of three rotating through unique stations for the entire two hours. Each station will have a dedicated goalie coach teaching the skill as well as shooters to execute the drill.

Off Ice

Athletes will be coached and taught by certified training professionals. Depending on the athletes age group, they will have several hockey off-ice training sessions where we will work on off-ice goaltending training as well as be introduced to other athletic activities. We feel it's very important hockey players be well rounded athletes.


7-Adult. Beginner and Elite welcome.


You will not get more experienced instructors at any other girls or women's goalie school. Our instructors come from professional women's hockey, university hockey (both U Sports and NCAA) as well as teachers and educators. Out list changes yearly based on availability, however, Sami Jo is there all day for the entire week.
