FOCUSING ON FUNDAMENTAL & SKILL DEVELOPMENT
For the 2018-2019 hockey season, the Saskatchewan Hockey Association (SHA) has implemented a model for the development of grassroots goaltending in the province. The purpose of this Grassroots Goaltending Model is to give an action plan set out by the SHA to the Minor Hockey Association (MHA) and their local MHA goalie coach. The SHA will give the Action plans to all MHA goalie coaches at the November training session, this also gives the SHA’s Regional Mentors the opportunity to review the action plans set out for the year.
Will be provided at a later date.

- Minor Hockey Goalie Coaches
We will have one (1) Regional Master Coach in the South who will be responsible for Zones 1-4 and one (1) in the North who will be responsible for Zones 5-8.
