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 PROGRAM
Our high school program was started 14 years ago as a way for passionate goalies to get the best off-ice development in Minnesota. Since then, we have coached and mentored goalies to the next level and beyond with our person first focus and athlete-based development model.
 
The program has grown from a ten-week summer program in 2008 to a year around program that works with elite high school goalies from all over the state of Minnesota. Optimal Goalie is committed to developing your son or daughter into the best athlete they can be while mentoring them into strong leaders on and off the ice.
 

Thank you for your interest in the high school off-ice development program, this year’s program is full. We are currently accepting applications for the 2023-2024 program. If you are interested in next year’s program, please fill out the athlete application form.

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.
