From online programs to on and off ice private lessons and clinics, Dominic Roussel Goaltending school is the reference since 2002 thanks to his vast NHL experience.
Programs from 10$
All lessons and clinics are run by Dominic personally, they are based on the modern techniques and include the teachings of hall of fame François Allaire. The programs are based on techniques that he learned from his former goaltending coaches like Mitch Korn, the legendary Bernie Parent, Reggie Lemelin, Pete Peeters and Benoit Allaire to name a few.
Dominic isn’t the type of coach that just runs drills, something we see too often but instead has the philosophy that teaching and understanding are the most important parts of development and performance. That is why he works in private, semi-private and clinics with a maximum of 12 participants.
Lessons are categorized by development phases
The first phase techniques are the basic stances, movements, angles and saves techniques.
The second phase progresses towards rebound control, following rebounds, butterfly slides as well as special plays like screen shots, breakaways and deflections.
The third phase is the elite phase and includes movement speed, chain of movement, puck handling and reflexes.
