Prospects Showcase

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.  

2019 Showcase

About Prospects

Achieve Your Goals

Our Prospects Showcase is designed for seriouscompetitive goaltenders trying to break into Junior and NCAA hockey. The showcase is an intense 3-day goalie camp spanning Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon of Memorial Day weekend. 

This is not your typical Junior showcase experience. This is goalie-specific evaluation, instruction, and promotion. 

How it works:

All goaltenders will be evaluated in 4 key areas: On-Ice Game-Play & Technique, Off-Ice AthleticismVision Performance, and Mindset & Personality.

 

Our staff of coaches and alumni will evaluate and create a scouting report showing both your strengths and areas of improvement.

As mentioned, goalies will be tested in other areas besides just the on-ice component. At the conclusion of camp, goalies will be provided a 1:1 exit interview to discuss the weekend and potential opportunities that came from the camp. Many opportunities will come after camp, as we process and create your individual profile to send to teams.

 

We promote and help goaltenders move on in three ways:

  1. Coaches and scouts on-ice and in attendance.

  2. Direct referrals and recommendations to our network of teams, coaches & scouts. We've worked with 6 USHL, 10 NAHL, and various CJHL (Canadian Jr. A) and Tier 3 teams to place goalies in competitive situations.

  3. We create video profiles for each goaltender, including their On-Ice film and all assessment reports. These are published to an online platform, where goalies can then share their profile with other scouts & coaches.

Our Junior Prospects Showcase is years in the making, created by Steve Briere back in 2010. Steve is now the goaltending coach for the Toronto Maple Leafs and remains owner of CPGS. Over the years, Steve and Josh have developed extensive relationships with teams and coaches in Junior leagues across North America. These relationships are instrumental in helping move goalies on to the next level.

Scott Langer
Head Coach 
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

Cary Eades
Head Coach
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).

Paul Dyck
Head Coach
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

Success Stories

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.
