Goalie Schools

I am always looking for ways to improve my game and one way is to attend a goaltending school. I’ve yet to find a roller hockey goalie school so I have not been to one yet. Once I start getting into ice hockey my goal is to attend a few clinics. To help all the other goalies out there, here is a list of some of the goaltending schools I have come across.
