Development Schedule

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

High School Development Program

The high school development program started in the spring of 2021 to give passionate goalies with high aspirations a place to truly develop off the ice. In that time the program has produced amazing results leading to goalies being drafted in the USHL, tendered in the NAHL & MJHL, playing in the Hlinka-Gretzky tournament, state championship & state-runner up, Frank Brimsek award nomination, and three team MVP’s to name a few of the accomplishments by the goalies in the program.

If you or your child has a serious desire to be a state champion and play at the next level this program is a must for you and their development as a goalie. I am committed to developing you into the best athlete you can be with my person-first focused athlete development model while mentoring you to be a strong leader on and off the ice.

Are you ready for the challenge of what it takes to be great in the net? Give me a call, you are the exact goalie I want to work with.

Larry approached my son at the end of his sophomore season with the opportunity to train at Optimal Goalie. We had been doing other summer training programs over the last few years, but we wanted something more focused that would help my son get to the next level. Larry’s program has been exactly what my son needed as a goalie.

As a goalie parent knows, the position of goaltending is one the most unique in all of sports, and can be lonely for the goalie and goalie parents. Larry has created a program, atmosphere, and culture where my son not only grows as an athlete, but experiences the camaraderie, support, and healthy competition formed training off the ice with other goalies, and his support, encouragement, and advisement have been invaluable to me as a goalie parent.

I cannot recommend this program highly enough; this is something every high school goalie should be doing if they want to play junior hockey.
