Who are Private Lessons for and when are they held?
Private lessons are for individuals looking to improve both technically and strategically. Lessons are conducted once per week for eight weeks and we train all age groups. Every eight weeks a new session of private lessons begins. Goalies register for a particular day and time and that day and time remains constant throughout the eight-week session.
Small Group Private Lessons vs One on One Private Lessons
Small Group Private Lessons include one instructor and two shooters for up to four goalies and the cost is $62 per lesson and $496 for the full eight week session. One on One Private Lessons consist of one goalie and one coach and are scheduled directly through the SIG Director of Private Lessons at a cost of $125 per lessons. 95% of our clientele opt for the Small Group Private Lessons.

SIG Block Training System
Every company has it’s own secret sauce but our path to success is not a secret at all. Our method of teaching is what we call “Block Training” which is based on directed practice and repetition. Each block consists of 8 skill concentrations that, if repeatedly practiced, produces remarkable results.
The key is to follow the progression of drills and to continue to refine those skills in the drills. The more “Blocks” you do the better you get, it’s that simple! Our pro and college clients return each year to continue their block training. A pro’s day one is the same as a peewee’s day one with the exception of the weight of the shots. Directed practice with a proven plan makes better goaltenders.
