World Pro Goaltending teaches a cutting edge style that focuses on making goaltenders more efficient. Through game situation movements in high repetition, goaltenders learn to move correctly, be in control of their movements, and have proper balance. We believe that a compact butterfly style, combined with read-and-react and patience skills, creates the ultimate hybrid goaltender.
