Goalie Session: Goalie Coach Derek Bohn and SJHA Goalie Development Staff will be focusing on edge work, eating pucks, lateral plays, low-high and high-low, and more fun and challenging drills to boost the skills of all levels.

Goalie Video Session:  Goalie Coach Derek Bohn will be walking the group through a professional video session breaking down important goaltending concepts displayed by the world's best netminders.

SJHA looks to provide coaches with four workshops on different topics to support their learning and teaching throughout the season. We are investing in our growth mindset! And we need your help!
