Welcome to Ron Petronella Elite Goalie Academy - The Place Where Goalies Come to Better Their Game

Ron Petronella Elite Goalie Academy

Goaltenders are not only the most important part of the hockey team but the most misunderstood and under-coached. Not only does it take a certain temperament to want to play goal, but it requires the athletic ability of a boxer with the grace of a ballet dancer

Goalies are like 'snowflakes'; no two are alike. It's important to work with the unique style and athletic ability of each individual goalie as that is where he will ultimately be most comfortable.

We are committed to training goaltenders of all ages and abilities through quality on and off ice program with a staff of coaches well-versed in Ron Petronella's system.

Our training sessions are primarily in the Long Island and NY Metro areas.

    Skating -

    The type of skating a goalie does differs from the other players. Goalies need to have the balance of a figure skating and the agility of a forward. These two criteria are covered through a variety of specialized drills designed to accomplish both.

    Preparation -

    Goalies spend only a minute or so stopping the puck through the course of a game. The majority of his time is spent preparing to stop the puck. How to prepare to be in the right place at the right time is what separates good goalies from great ones.

    Execution -

    There are two types of saves: blocking saves and reaction saves. We explain and train goalies on how they differ and when they are used.

We hold camps, clinics, and private sessions all year long in the Long Island and Metro NY area. Check out Camps & Clinics page for more information or contact us.
