About CPGS

Decades of Elite Goalie and Player Development

Canadian Professional Goalie Schools was born out of a dream by current NHL Goalie Coach, Steve Briere. What started out as camp that Steve could participate in while he was playing professionally, eventually became a breeding ground for cutting edge goaltending development.

 

The Canadian Professional Goal Scoring Camps was a direct result of thinking outside of the box! The Goal Scoring Camps were created by NHL, USHL, NAHL, and College GOALIES! That’s right, Goalies! Who better to know the hardest shots to stop than goalies? The camp was developed by Goalies and run by Elite and Professional Player-Coaches. This combination is the perfect formula for creating a successful, smarter goal scorer. Shooters need Goalies and the Goalies need Shooters!

 

Although we had a wonderful success combining our camps, we are now solely focused on Goaltending camps. As Coach Briere now has limited time while working in the NHL, and most recently has been unable to join camp, the solution now is to bring to you one exclusive, Elite Camp each year that will be constructed and run by Coach Briere. At Canadian Professional Goalie Schools, we focus on all aspects of goaltending from skating and movement, to save selections and on to the deeper elements:

  • The mental side of the game

  • Vision performance

  • Training processes

  • Philosophies and MORE!

 

At CPGS we believe in the philosophy of situational goaltending, meaning that there are many different ways to stop the puck depending on the individual situation. Goaltenders are built differently, think differently and react differently. As a result of this, each goaltender will play each puck differently. At CPGS we build a solid foundation of fundamentals that allows us to teach goaltenders the various ways to apply the save selections in various situations. The CPGS style has enabled our instructors to teach goaltenders of all levels no matter what size, age or gender.

 

Our mission is to teach Goaltenders about having PASSION for the game, EDUCATION for their position, and EXCELLENCE in execution.
