"Through a detailed and process oriented coaching style, Woolwich Wild goaltenders can expect to enjoy useful and up-to-date goaltending instruction which will allow for a better understanding of the position, and ultimately more efficiency in the crease. Coaches will observe and learn ways to evaluate their goaltenders and provide them with consistent feedback to ensure development throughout the season".
