Psychological Training and Commitment
The Franco Canadian Goalie School believes that mental toughness and strength is the driving factor between success and failure. Being able to understand how to control the different challenges sent our way good or bad is vital in any individual’s growth. Many athletes are faced with different overwhelming challenges daily, the athlete that learns how to grasp and control what has been sent his/her way will overcome. We at the Franco Canadian Goalie School will give the knowledge and power through different mental preparation exercises, that will allow them to stand up and face their mental challenges head on.
All of our instructors are personally trained by David Franco. Our instructors are all competitively playing the game today either at the Pro, Junior or College level. All of our instructors wear their gear in order to demonstrate and breakdown drills, enabling our students to better understand the techniques being taught.
