Q: At Stop It Goaltending Private Lessons, how many goalies are on the ice?

A: Stop It Goaltending lessons are small groups of no more than 4 goalies. One on one private lessons are available on demand by calling our Director of Private Lessons at (714) 944-8651. 95% of SIG clientele participate in the small group format.

Q: How do I select a program?

A: To select a private lesson go to our “Private Lessons Scheduling” page. Sort by location and then “Package”, “Walk On” or Specialty clinic.

  1. Packages consist of one lesson per week for eight week session. Goalies select a day and time which remains consistent for eight weeks.
  2. Walk On goalies must be booked in advance and consist of one lesson.
  3. Specialty clinics are programs that we run over vacation days and holidays.

Q: What happens if you pick a day and time for an eight week session but need to change?

A: As long as we have an open slot at another available day and time we will simply make the change. If there are no other slots available we can move that goalie to the next session or refund the registration.

Q: What happens if I have to miss a lesson?

A: “We do offer the courtesy of a make-up class if you have a conflict for the hour you signed up for in any given week. We will always do our best to find a make-up spot but we can’t always guarantee it during the busy seasons. We ask that you notify us in advance so we can open up your spot to another student looking for a make-up that week. Make-Ups will only be honored if we are given at least a 24hr notice. We then schedule a make-up class during that same week at an alternate time if available.  If that is not possible, we require that it be made up within that same 8 week session as we do not carry “credit make-ups” to future session.  Please email Amy Zappen at amy@stopitgoaltending.com on the Sunday of the week in which you would like to do your make-up.  She will then let you know if we have something available.”

Q: What is the cost of the lessons?

A: The cost of the eight-week session for goalies is $496 ($62 per lesson). Private one on one lessons costs $125 per lesson.

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!
