THE NEXT GENERATION OF GOALTENDING DEVELOPMENT ARRIVES AT PRO AMBITIONS

View Schedules for all goalie boarding
and goalie day camps here

Pro Ambitions, North America’s leading hockey camps, has committed to providing the best goaltending training available. We went after the nation’s top young goalie coach - and got him!

Since Goalie Coach Mike Buckley has joined the Pro Ambitions team, our goalie training program has undergone innovative, new changes, selling out week after week, as a result.  Under Mike Buckley’s curriculum, students are exposed to today’s most modern technique. As a former Division 1. and recently retired professional goaltender, Coach Buckley’s teachings has helped produced several NHL draft picks, five Division 1. scholarships, two major junior draft picks, and two U-17 National Development Team selections.

In addition to his role as Director of Goaltending for Pro Ambitions, Mike is also the UNH Goaltending Coach (Hockey East).

Mike’s coaching curriculum is focused on being well-structured, progressive, challenging and fun. Skating, stance, positioning, save selection, rebound control and recovery are developed using today's modern methods. In addition, game situations, stick handling and the mental game are focused on each day to produce strong, consistent-minded goaltenders.

Mike Buckley has developed an intuitive and very successful training curriculum that until now has only been available though his highly sought after private instruction. E-mail Mike with any camp or clinic questions at mbuckley@gdsgoalies.com

Jeff – Here is the e-mail that I sent to Kevin Regan regarding the Goalie camp that my son attended in Newington, CT.

I couldn’t believe you had the all-time Hockey East leader in save % as a coach…never mind that my family are also big UNH fans!

My son had one of the best weeks of his life and the details/instruction he was shown by Kevin has been amazing to see!

Thank you for having such great quality in your coaching staff….you will defiantly see us again next year!


To Jeff:

My son recently attended your camp in Dallas Texas. He did well, and was given high marks for being a small goalie. He is very good at what he does; loves this sport. He finished the number one goalie ion his league this past season. I wanted to thank you for the camp and what you left him with. He brought home a different attitude and approach. Each evening he was so excited, and couldn't wait to get home and tell me what he had done during the day at the camp. He was overjoyed each time the coaches hit a hard shot at him and he would catch it.
I had told them not to go easy on him and to be tough on him sometime when they felt comfortable hitting a couple pretty hard at him.
All coaches (counselors) were very friendly, and I felt at ease leaving him with them. From the first time I met them, I did not feel they were strangers since they were so available and friendly. We plan on
attending next time one is offered.
I appreciate what you've done for my son. He won't make the NHL, but his dream is more alive, and he now has more confidence than ever before.
Just a simple thank you and your coaches for your time and effort you put into the camp. Looking forward to next year.


My son is a goalie and has played for 5 years been too many camps on the West Coast where we live. He LOVED the Pro Ambition camp—John was a fabulous instructor, the curriculum really helped him advance as a goalie. We travel 3000 to attend –and we could not be happier with the results. My son wishes he could have attended and play with your instructors ALL summer. I enthusiastically recommend your camp as the best one out there to help kids develop and ignite their passion for hockey so they try and want to play better.

Hi Jeff/Mike,

I wanted to say thank you for the great February vacation goalie camp my daughter attended last week. She loved it so much she jumped out of bed ready to go each day even though it was an hour earlier than normally for school. Her first game after camp (and only her third goalie game) the opposing coach told our coach she was the best goalie
they faced all season. She learned a lot, but most of all had fun and enjoyed it. Thank you.

-Chris
