Elite Training Camps
Our trio of Elite Training Camps provides different, highly competitive experiences. In mid July, we hold a camp exclusively for "intermediate" goalies...those aged 11-15. The second takes place at Bemidji State University (Bemidji, MN), where we bring out the BSU NCAA Division 1 players to shoot on our goalies throughout our week-long stay on campus. The third is a more intimate setting in Stillwater, Minnesota, exclusively held for Junior, College, or Professional goalies.
About Bemidji Elite
Prepare for the Upcoming Season
The Bemidji Elite Camp is one of our best of the summer!
It is a highly competitive environment for goaltenders aged 15+ (1999-2005 for Summer 2020) where we can all get on the ice and train together against NCAA DI shots. Every year, we bring out the Bemidji State University NCAA Division I players to shoot on our goalies, as well as top high school players from the area.
Intense, Unique, Innovative Training:
This camp is for dedicated and committed goaltenders. We have a busy schedule with long days and quick turnarounds. There will be an intense off-ice aspect as well. Coaches and athletes are expected to push each other. All boats rise with the tide.
Unique and Innovative:
The coaching staff at CPGS brings experienced coaching from countries around the world including Canada, USA, Switzerland, Finland and the UK. This provides a unique and well-rounded perspective of the different techniques and philosophies of goaltending. This unique environment allows goaltenders to benefit and adapt to the techniques that work for them. There is not one way to play goalie!
We ensure that each and every attendee enjoys this unforgettable experience. Aside from goaltending we include a variety of outdoor activities to allow the continuation and importance of working as a team. These activities include:
Soccer & more!
