Special goalie training using modern techniques takes place under the watchful eye of Josef Hovora, an experienced coach of such personalities as Hasek, Turek, Cechmanek, Hnilicka, Salficky and others in their junior age.

Throughout the whole week, goalies get comprehensive training which will help them substantially in following seasons. Video technology is used during the training on the ice. Players are taped in a variety of situations then the videos are analyzed right on the spot or in the nearby classroom. This provides an important feedback so that the goalie can eliminate weak points.

Another tool used is the goalie band. This is a revolutionary new training tool for ice hockey goalies of all ages and skill levels. It teaches a goalie how to properly position themselves in the goal crease when facing a shooter by "gently reminding them" when they are backing up too far in the crease. By using the Goalie Band in practice situations, goalies become accustomed to setting up at the front of the crease area, thus cutting the angles and giving shooters much less of a target to shoot at.
