Mass Crease was developed by former NHL Goaltender, Brian Eklund.
This unique program develops the goaltender from the ground
up. Goaltending is a unique position in the game of hockey.
As a goalie you have to be strong, athletic, flexible, intelligent
and most importantly quick. All these characteristics are developed
through repetition, drills, technique, off-ice training and
Eklund has shaped a program which bears a striking resembelance
to the type of training you see with Professional Goaltenders. It’s
a combination of On-Ice and Off-Ice Training. On-Ice we work on
the technique between the pipes, which is a hybrid of the Quebec
and Finnish styles. We build goaltenders from skating to puck handling
and concentrate on technique while developing the agility needed
to compete at the "next level". Off-Ice we condition the
goaltender through strength training and agility exercises. Off-Ice
shapes the goalie and On-Ice perfects the goalie.
Crease believes that your goalie learns best in small numbers,
so we are keeping our coach to goalie ratio low. Technique is
best taught through example, which is why our coaches are in full
gear. It’s a concept Brian Eklund started and somethings
are better left untouched.
The game of hockey is competitive and we
believe in hard work and dedication, but we are also big believers
in having fun! Both can be accomplished through Massachusetts
Crease. I believe it and guarantee it!
