Goaltender Mentor
Submitted By charlene on Tuesday, October 1, 2013
The  Board of Directors is pleased to announce that Carson Bird has been appointed to the newly-created position of WSMHA Goaltender Mentor.  In his new role Carson will be responsible for the Association's Goaltender Training and Development Program for House League and Rep goalies.   In commenting on the appointment Board member Ron Bremner pointed out that goaltender development was one of three key building blocks identified by the WSMHA when it became a AA Centre. 

 

 "Carson has been increasingly involved with both our House League and Rep goalie training over the past couple of years.  The goalies seem to relate very well to Carson and we've seen some pretty positive signs in terms of the depth and quality of our goaltenders.  The Board felt it was simply a logical next step to give him more scope to develop and implement a goaltending strategy for the Association."
 
As Goaltender Mentor, Mr. Bird will continue to be responsible for WSMHA-sponsored goalie clinics which are designed to supplement the efforts of House League and Rep coaches.  In addition, he will provide periodic progress reports to coaches and goaltenders based on his observations from games and clinics.  He will also be available to both coaches and goaltenders for on and off-ice consultation and assistance as requested.
