Where we provide opportunities to goalies ready to take the next step in their careers.
Using our Prospects Showcase, we help budding goaltenders reach the next level. The goal is simple: provide USHL, NAHL, and other Junior opportunities to goaltenders from across North America (and the world) in one convenient location.
Achieve Your Goals
Our mission through the Prospects Showcase is to provide goaltenders around the world with the opportunity to showcase their talents in a unique and proprietary environment that is conducive to allowing goaltenders to showcase their skills and abilities.
This program is built around exhibiting goaltenders mental, physical (Strength and Flexibility), and vision attributes on top of fundamental on-ice components such as rebound control, movement, save selections, communication, and puck play.
Most traditional showcases have no goaltender-specific evaluation involved. They simply recruit kids and allocate them to a team to play games. Unfortunately, they have very little control over true evaluation. Some camps may have an hour dedicated to goaltenders but few coaches might really pay attention. Some prospects camps have off ice testing, however, none of the tests are goaltender specific. Finally, once the goaltender has finished the camp they are on their own to start all over again at the next camp.
At CPGS we have considered all of these issues and concerns. We strive to develop long-term relationships with our goaltenders, guiding throughout their careers. Our showcase is built by goaltenders for goaltenders, and used as a vital recruiting tool for coaches in the USHL, NAHL, and USPHL, as well as various Canadian Junior Leagues.
Each goaltender will be filmed on the ice and we create a video library and profile which will be used to promote each goaltender.
Also unique to the CPGS Prospects Camp, goalies participate in Sports Vision Testing as well as a DISC Personality Assessment. These are used to evaluate who the goalie is, individual goaltender so we can understand them on a deeper level.

Aberdeen Wings NAHL
We are proud to support the CPGS Prospects Camp as we believe that it will help us evaluate the top talent available for our club. I would strongly recommend any goalie who is looking to play for our club attend
Fargo Force USHL
We fully endorse this camp. Not only do you receive great instruction, but Steve and his staff work very hard to place players with teams. We have taken goalies they recommend directly into our Fargo Force camp (which is usually a week or two later).
Steinbach Pistons MJHL
We used Steve Briere and the CPGS prospects camp to provide us with a top goaltender this past season. We are extremely pleased with CPGS and we will be using their services again to fill our future goaltending needs
Our Alumni includes goalies who have participated in the Year-Round Goalie Coaching program and the Prospects Camp program, and it’s forever growing.
We are so proud of the work that each and every one of them put into becoming the best and realizing their dreams. We do not claim to have "created" these goalies, they're the ones that have put in the work...rather we've partnered with them along their journey.
This is listed based on the highest level our goalies were able to achieve. Many of them were placed at lower levels (such as the NAHL or USHL) before climbing the ranks into college and pro hockey. This list includes only goalies who were placed in Juniors, many more are still at the High School & Midget levels.
