THE NEXT GENERATION OF GOALTENDING DEVELOPMENT …

IS NOW AT THE NEW ENGLAND SPORTS VILLAGE

The area’s top pro, college, junior, high school, prep and youth hockey goalies choose Mike Buckley for the proven success of his systematic approach to goaltending. Coach Buckley’s system fits into all players’ games, at all levels.

The GDS system is a thoroughly mapped out set of principles and variables that lays the groundwork of the goaltender’s game. The system builds on the six core fundamentals of goaltending: Skating, stance, positioning, save selection, rebound control and recovery.

GDS coaching creates a strong technical base complemented by a focus on an athletic, unbounded style of play. This allows goaltenders to develop their own style based on their strengths, resulting in quick efficient movements and confidence in their game. In the last 3 seasons alone, the GDS system has developed 17 divisions 1. commitments, including 3rd round draft pick Mike Robinson (San Jose Sharks).
