South Shore Seahawks offers specialized training for all goalies at all levels of play.
- Mites - Our policy in Mites is to “pass the pads,” meaning teams do not have designated goaltenders. Players take turns playing in net. Game play time will be largely reliant on your coach and the number of players interested in the position on your given team. We typically have 1-3 players on any given mite team who are interested in the position. Please notify us at registration if interested. This can help balance the number of goaltenders we have on each team. All mite players will have access to borrowed pads provided by the South Shore Seahawks.
- Squirts through Midgets - Goaltenders practice weekly via skills, team practice and / or 3x3. Goaltenders are also offered 8 specialty training sessions at MassCrease (per season), located in Norwell. These sessions are included in their SeaHawks registration fee. The purchase of additional sessions are encouraged at the responsibility of the families. The South Shore Hockey Conference holds complementary goaltending training sessions as well which all Seahawks goaltenders can attend.

- Equipment - We have goaltending equipment to lend out to Seahawks goalies on an as needed basis. All Mites will have access to pads. Upper levels may have access on a case by case basis - first come first serve and dependant on inventory. It is recommended for Squirt and up that goaltenders invest in their own pads and skates.
- Subbing - We all understand that things happen and sometimes you can’t make a game. When this happens, please let your coach know as soon as possible so they can line up a substitute goaltender for that game.
- Volunteering - All Seahawks coaches are volunteers. If you would like to volunteer as a goalie coach, contact us to let us know!
