BC Hockey is proud to announce that former Team Pacific goaltender Nathan Lieuwen, now a member of the Kootenay Ice (WHL), has been named to the Hockey Canada Program of Excellence (POE) Goaltending Camp to be held at the Father David Bauer Olympic Arena in Calgary, AB June 12-15.
Lieuwen and eleven (11) other goaltenders from across Canada – eight in the Under-20 age category (candidates for the National Junior Team) and four in the Under-18 category (candidates for the National Men’s Under-18 Team) – will have the opportunity to work with Corey Hirsch, Hockey Canada’s Goaltending Consultant, and a number of other instructors during the four-day camp. Lieuwen is one of the four candidates who will be eligible for the National Men’s Under-18 Team.
“These goaltenders are the future of our national teams, so we want to give them the opportunity to learn from some of the top instructors in the game,” said Hirsch. “We have had great success the past two years with our goaltending camp, and we look forward to further developing some of Canada’s top young goaltenders.”
The camp will include both on-ice and off-ice sessions. The instructors will provide both the participants and Hockey Canada with detailed reports at the conclusion of the camp. All of the on-ice sessions will be held at the Father David Bauer Olympic Arena in Calgary, AB and will be open to the public. A schedule will be posted at
prior to the start of the camp.
