Goalie training in Parksville

Next year Gold in the Net will celebrate 30 years of helping goalies develop their skills in Parksville and across Canada.

Gold in the Net has had a lot of goaltenders come through its doors and to their camps. With franchises across Canada and Finland, it’s recognized around the world as a leader in setting the standard for the development of goalies.

The Parksville branch has everything a goalie needs, from a “pro shop” full of Vaughn goalie gear, their mini ice surface and their newest training device, the Dynavision D2 (helping peripheral vision and cognitive abilities), everything a goalie needs to improve their game.

“The Dynavision is a great training device,” Gold in the Net team member Isaac Stevens said. “It’s primarily used as a training device to help athletes with their peripheral vision and to help improve their reaction speed. But the great thing about it is that it can also be used to help athletes of other sports and… it and can be used for concussion management as well.”

Gold in the Net has also introduced mental training courses this year, which are hour-long classroom sessions that go over the mental side of goaltending. Coupled with their on ice training and off-ice movement sessions, they are going strong.

“There have been lots of changes in the sport,” Stevens said. “We here at Gold in the Net are not only trying to keep up with the new ways to train but are always trying to stay one step ahead so you can become the best that you can be.”
