Good afternoon,       
We are happy to announce that Milton Minor Hockey will continue to provide free Goalie Development for our Houseleague and Advanced Houseleague Goalies and those houseleague players interested in the position, for the 2023-2024 hockey season!   

We will once again use THE CREASE GOALTENDING ACADEMY to run our goalie clinics. 

Weekly clinics will start Monday, October 16, with 3 slots available (4:30, 5:30 and 6:30pm).

Sessions will be held at Milton Sports Centre, Rink B. The schedule will be posted to the website.  Please keep an eye out for potential rink changes.

All dedicated houseleague goalies registered with Milton Winterhawks are invited and encouraged to attend.

For houseleague teams without dedicated goalies, we encourage them to send one player a week (ideally the player who will be in net for the upcoming game).

In order to ensure that there is an appropriate instructor to player ratio, you will be required to sign up at or you can click this link:

(NOTE: When booking on site, block 1 is at 4pm but ice starts at 430pm, block 2 is at 5pm but ice starts at 530pm, block 3 is at 6pm but ice starts at 630PM)   

When filling out your profile on the website please include your TEAM/Level (ie U8/9 team 1 or U10/11 team 2 etc.).  

Under How did you hear about us- let us know if you are a full time houseleague goalie or a houseleague player trying goaltending out.

If you are a full time houseleague goalie and want to attend weekly, you can book 1 time spot per Monday for all the dates available.

If you book a spot, we anticipate you will attend that day at that time and will send the appropriate number of instructors.   If you need to cancel a session, the system will allow you to cancel up to 48 hrs in advance.

( IF YOU NEED TO CANCEL WITHIN THE 48 HR WINDOW, PLEASE EMAIL [email protected] so another goalie can potentially attend)

As noted, this program is also available for houseleague players that want to try goaltending out.  Simply register for the week you want to attend, so we have your information and can expect your goaltender.

Please note that all costs will be covered by Milton Winterhawks, and we will endeavor to distribute players evenly throughout all timeslots.


Also, the Crease encourages REGISTERED WITH MMHA coaches, assistant coaches, siblings or teammates to come out and shoot on goalies.  Please let us know the sessions you will be assisting by emailing us.  Adults must wear helmets (done up) and gloves. Players must be in full equipment.  Note: everyone on the ice MUST be registered as a bench staff or player with MMHA for this season.


Lastly, I just want to remind all parents and players to be respectful to the instructors on the ice. 


Thank you!
