GDI Goaltending began in 2005 with Summer Camp Programming in Winnipeg, MB and with that success and expansion of program offerings each year led to the construction of our Satellite Training Center.
Its reputation has grown due to the exceptional knowledge of the goaltending position and the ability to consistently convey that knowledge to coaches and goalies.
The GDI Winnipeg Satellite Centre is a world-class goalie-only facility that offers goaltenders a year-round resource to become the best they can be.
At GDI, we believe that each goaltender has a unique approach to the position. While goaltending encompasses a vast array of technical, physiological and psychological inputs, each goaltender assembles a distinct bundle of performance assets.
When working with a goaltending client, our emphasis is to work within the confines of each client’s approach…regardless of “style”. While there are fundamentals that must be instilled in any approach, and at all levels of play, GDI believes in working within the context of the specific athlete’s game.
Why do we take this approach?
Goaltending style is a journey.
As a goaltending athlete progresses through a career, countless unique experiences are implanted upon this player’s mind. Through these experiences, the goaltender begins to build an approach. This approach combines these experiences with core fundamentals and the individual’s distinct strengths and limitations.
During a GDI experience, athletes will seek to hone, refine and repackage this distinct approach.
A combination of technical enhancements and physiological guidance (where necessary) will, in turn, drive one’s psychological game forward.
That’s right, performance gains require a multi-faceted approach – technical, physiological, psychological – which is a hallmark of GDI and a sure-fire method of fast tracking your game.
