Darin's thoughts about the camp:
Over the August 3, 4, 5th weekend I had the opportunity to attend the Pacific District High Performance goalie camp in Las Vegas as an instructor. Select 03 boys and 04 girls from across the Pacific District were invited to attend. We had 6 goalies from WA. 26 goalies total.
We were lucky enough to use the Las Vegas Golden Knights practice facility and stayed right across the street at the Red Rock Resort.
It was a jam packed weekend which included fitness testing, 4 on ice sessions, dryland and multiple speakers such as myself. I had the opportunity to present a new technique, the lateral release, to the group. One of the highlights was a speak by the Las Vegas Golden Knights head chef. He also cooked us lunch and dinner on Saturday.
Overall it was an intense 3 days of goalie training. It was also a great opportunity for us as coaches to learn from the Pacific District goalie coach in chief, Steve Thompson.
Looking forward to doing it again next year.
