I have been working as a Goaltending Coach since 2011. I fell in love with the coaching side of hockey after being passionate about the game my entire life.
I grew up in Thunder Bay Ontario playing AAA and then JR. Before moving to London ON, I worked at the Hill Academy in Vaughan for 3 years Assistant Coaching the Prep Hockey Teams, and Goalie Coaching Student-Athletes from grades 5-12.
I have worked with NHL, AHL, OHL NCAA, and OUA goaltenders thanks to my years of experience with Zulies Goalie Academy in Thunder Bay, and Franco Canadian Goaltending in Vaughan.
Trained and certified by Hockey Canada to facilitate Goaltending Development Clinics.
Rogers Goaltending puts thought into each individual goalie and what makes them and their gameplay unique. This is done by using my knowledge of the position after years of working for and with some of the top Goalie Coaches in Canada. My coaching style caters to different personalities while at the same time adding structure, and proper technique for young goaltenders.
PRIVATE/SEMI PRIVATE LESSONS
Can be booked at any arena, usually 2-3 goalies and myself. Total Private 1 on 1 coaching is available. Can also have Shooters out from any given age group.
Coaches have me out to your teams practice. I will come work with the goalies for a reasonable fee.
Will come watch/scout games to critique and help improve game scenarios. This can also be done through video sent to me.
“Eric Rogers has been a massive influence on my hockey career to this day! Through my years of working with him I have developed in so many different areas of goaltending. His method of being able to connect to goalies and teach on a personal and professional level is unparalleled. Anyone who gets to work with Eric is lucky and should listen and learn!”
