MGS Girls Camp is a new concept first brought to the lineup in the summer of 2015 and has proved to be a giant success, consistently selling out and attracting phenomenal talent of goalies varying from mites to midget AAA.
“Growing up a student of the camps, I remember that every summer there would be one or two girls that would come to MGS and absolutely dominate on the ice. When I transitioned to a coach I, along with Chico and Kelly Gee, were so impressed with not only how talented some of these female goalies were but how they were year in and year out the nicest and hardest working students in the camp. Alex Rigsby, Corinne Boyles, Erin Callahan, Erin Kirchiver, all whom played NCAA D1 hockey, just to name a few, made their names coming to MGS. It was upon my recollection of this, coupled with the fact that the market in Chicago has exploded for girls hockey over the last handful of years, I felt it was our obligation to form a camp specifically designed to nurture the growing talent and prove that stopping a puck knows no gender. Everybody comes together to make the group of 18 goalies better, stronger, and more educated in what it takes to become an elite level female goalie.” – Eric Levine
This camp brings the best of both worlds as MGS brings back some of their top female goalies playing college or pro hockey to teach, along with the full time staff and use both male and female paid shooters. Open to goalies of all ages, Younger and Older groups will be made after final roster is set and each will go through their own off ice program involving goalie specific hip strengthening exercises, flexibility practice, agility training and a professional yoga session.
Students will go through the MGS curriculum on the ice, abiding by our 30:90 model. The first 30 minutes will be focused goalie skating and puck playing drills, followed by 90 minutes of in net drills. Goalies will be divided into groups of 3 based on skill level for on ice stations and the corresponding variations of drills will be tailored to the overall age and needs of the group.
