Training Schedule

Optimal Goalie is the only performance training facility in Minnesota, totally dedicated to goalie off-ice training. We offer programs year around for goalies of all ages and abilities.

Spring 2021

After a long season the right recovery program is what every goalie needs to be ready for their summer training. Our spring programs focus on mental and physical recovery. Every training session works on correcting mental, muscular and mobility imbalances that may have developed during the season.

Summer 2021

Our summer training programs target the individual performance needs of each goalie. From developing strength to athleticism, we have a program for you. Every one our programs is designed using proven science-based sports performance training methods to give you the results you’re looking for.

There are many options for off-ice training but not any locally geared towards goalies. This is what intrigued me about Optimal Goalie for my son’s goalie off-ice training. His goalie coach recommended working with Larry and the training was as good as advertised. The program has been geared towards my son’s specific needs as a goalie. I have noticed a great improvement in my son’s performance on the ice. From greater lateral movement, speed, and confidence in his game.
For the last two years my son has really enjoyed working with Larry as he is always positive in his encouragement and knows how to positively push my son out of his comfort zone to get him to achieve his goals on and off the ice. I would highly recommend Larry and Optimal Goalie to anyone who is looking for a great off-ice goalie training program.
