It was the summer in which the Watergate drama reached its conclusion in the resignation of a president. Eric Clapton sang, "I Shot the Sherriff." Moviegoers went in large numbers to see "The Sting" and "Godfather II". And Joe Bertagna was teaching skate saves and two-pad stacks to young goalies at hockey camp.

Joe Bertagna has announced the spring/summer goalie school schedule for 2013, Joe's 40th summer of coaching goalies. We hope you will join us!!! Click here for the 2013 Summer Application!
The staff of BERTAGNA GOALTENDING is available for smallgroup and private tutoring throughout the season. Two methods are now being used:
1) Many youth organizations will bring Joe and his staff out to their ice for regularly schedule goalie clinics, combined with programwide skill sessions or as stand-alone events. Last winter, Joe worked with a number of organizations including but not limited to Beverly Youth Hockey Association, Cape Ann YHA, Framingham YHA, Needham YHA, Newburyport YHA, North Star YHA, Rhode Island Hitmen, Top Gun and Yarmouth-Dennis YHA.
2) Joe will return to the Holland Arena in Woburn, Massachusets, for his weekly Sunday afternoon clinics. These are scheduled for 12:10-1:10 every Sunday starting September 9 and going through March.
Cost of these sessions:
Option #1: Pay in advance for four or more sessions and pay $50 per session.
Option #2: Fewer than four sessions, $60 per session.
Former Boston Bruins goalie coach Joe Bertagna has completed his fourth DVD for Championship Productions of Ames, IA. This one is titled, "Goaltending Today: Traditional Values through New Techniques." Filmed this summer with former NHL netminder Mike Morrison, and enhanced this winter with UMass goalie coach Mike Buckley, this DVD shows how many of the newer techniques employed by today's top goalies are used to reach familiar goals of proper positioning and puck control.
AVAILABLE YEAR-ROUND FOR YOUTH HOCKEY ORGANIZATIONS
We also have worked to stay "current." With the addition of younger staff, recently out of college or professional hockey, we have made sure to stay up with changes in the game. Joe and his staff are available year-round for youth hockey organizations. We now offer a variety of summer sessions, Three-day, four-day and five-day options are available, as is a once-a-week option. We are also busier in the fall and winter than ever before. And each spring, we offer instruction for adult women hockey players (not just goalies) as interest in women's hockey has really taken off.
We hope you consider one of the many options we offer, all of which are designed to help you play better and enjoy the game more. The fact that we are in our 38th year is living testimony to what thousands of hockey players have enjoyed by coming to us for instruction.
