ProCrease Summer Camps at Newington Arena
Summer Camp Update
 
Pro Crease Goaltending has always operated our summer camps under the guidance and laws set forth by the State of CT. While monitoring the conditions and, of equal importance, listening to the wonderful feedback via our recent survey, we have developed an industry leading summer program that will keep our goaltenders safe, on the ice more while providing a highly customizable and personalized experience, the PCG Fast Track Summer.
 
We are extremely excited to announce that the Fast Track Summer maintains an on ice goaltender to coach ratio of 2:1
Also, the total attendance of each session is well within the desired comfort range expressed in the survey with only 6 goalies in each zone! Finally, the locker rooms at the Newington Arena are all properly divided with clear visual markings to maintain a safe distance.
 
While we look forward to returning to Avon Old Farms, Quinnipiac University and South Kent, these facilities will be closed to summer camps due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result the 2020 Scenarios, Newington, Frozen 72 Men’s and Women’s Camps are canceled. 
 
The Development Camp set to take place at the Newington Arena has also been canceled in order to provide the best version of the PCG Fast Track Summer
 
The 2020 Elite Week will now take place at the Newington Arena during the same dates, July 20 – 23. If you have already signed up for Elite Week an additional email will soon be sent out. 
 
All CPCT summer camps have been canceled except the Development Camp which will still be held the week of August 17th. 
 
Please take a moment to read the very specific explanation of the PCG Fast Track Summer!
 
Your Summer Training Just Got 
Fast Tracked!
 
ON ICE
 
All goaltenders will enjoy 2:1 goaltender to coach ratio during the entirety of the PCG Fast Track Summer during an uninterrupted 90-minute ice session! 
 
With the 2:1 ratio and limited number of total attendees, goaltenders will be grouped with a single partner of similar age and level. There is no need to worry about the overall age level of the session. Every goaltender will receive the right coaching for their game from NCAA – Youth.
 
We know that every goaltender wants to be in the net as much as possible this summer and we’re making that a reality with this amazing ratio. There will be no wasted time on “group teaching” or Zamboni time.
 
VIDEO
 
Pre-Ice 
Before the goaltenders need to arrive to the rink a highly detailed video will be available for each goaltender to review when it best suits them. This video will include the day’s situational and skill focuses along with drill explanations. Also embedded will be real game examples and breakdowns. This video will be available for download so goaltenders can refer back to the information for later use. This is an amazing takeaway for all attending goaltenders.
 
1:1 Video
A very exciting component to the 2020 PCG Fast Track Summerwill be One on One Video Sessions! There is nothing like individual feedback and conversation. For each session your goaltender attends, One on One video time will be scheduled via Zoom with a member of the Pro Crease Goaltending staff. 
 
Strength & Conditioning
 
After the amazing feedback we have received about our Online Spring Training Staff we are happy to welcome the following staff who will be leading an hour long daily online strength and conditioning session.
 
Terrance McLellan – Quinnipiac University Assistant Strength & Conditioning Coach
 
Avery Westlund – Goaltender Yoga Specialist, ERYT500 
 
Master Jade Hwang – Owner/Founder PHX KBX 
 
SCHEDULE
 
Customizable and experiential is the focus of the 2020 PCG Fast Track Summer. With this in mind each goaltender will be able to build their own summer schedule. Below are all the dates and times listed for your convenience and ability to plan. The entirety of the summer has been planned with keen detail to allow for goaltenders to develop whether they sign up for a single session or the entire program. 
 
Goaltenders are able to create their own summer schedule! Sign up for a single Blue or Red Session which is 2 days: a Monday and a Wednesday or a Tuesday and a Thursday of a given week or sign up for multiple Sessions for an even more comprehensive training experience.
