A GB Women’s goalie camp took place at the weekend with some of the top prospects in the sport taking to the ice.

The two-day camp was held at Deeside Leisure Centre and was overseen on the ice by GB Women’s Goaltending Coach, Dave Clancy.

The first day focused on skating and tracking the puck, which was followed by game situation plays on day two.

Clancy said: “It was a superb camp and all the athletes worked hard across the weekend.

“As well as the on-ice sessions, there were important off-ice activities which included understanding the importance of hip mobility, as well as strength and conditioning.

“There were a lot of people involved in the event and I would like to thank all the staff, coaches, puck shooters, athletes and parents for making it a huge success.  Thanks also to Deeside Leisure Centre for helping us put on this important camp.”

Euan King, Head of GB Goaltending Development Programme, added: “Dave (Clancy) was helped immensely by manager Claire Rowbotham and the two of them did an outstanding job. It really was a massive success.

“The women’s programme is a strong position right now when it comes to goaltending. I’m excited to see more and more female players coming through system to be competing for the national teams.

“The final details are being finalised for the 2023-24 season and the over-arching goaltending programme. Those who have been selected to be a part of the programme moving forward – both men’s and women’s – will be notified in due course.”
