Why are we called "ROCK"???
My name is Nolan Schaefer. I played in the NHL, AHL, KHL, and almost any league you can name. It was not an easy path. But to further the challenges of life and hockey... one year after I was married my wife became very sick. Her body stopped functioning as it should in every way you can think of...
GOALTENDER CLASSES ONLINE
Goaltending is 90% mental.
How much time do you spend on the mental side of goaltending?
Welcome goaltenders and parents to The Rock Goaltender Training and Instruction. My name is Nolan Schaefer. I am a former NHL goaltender with the San Jose Sharks and currently consultant and coach for Clear Sight Development as well as VP of Future Product Development at Clear Sight Analytics.
The goal in starting this online goaltender class and community was to stay in touch with students during a very hard year. We started off with some online camps which quickly grew into this amazing community of like minded goaltenders and parents that want to learn about the position of goaltending.
At "The Rock" each goaltender will attend a weekly online LIVE class taught by me, Nolan Schaefer. Classes are conducted on a Zoom Meeting and recorded and published to our MEMBERS Only, PRIVATE, Rock Goaltender Facebook Group. In this group goaltenders will interact, answer questions, and be challenged with video content for learning. Each student will be encouraged to share their videos and questions each week to the group.
Goaltending is mental. Every goaltender needs guidance. Teaching and mentoring from a coach with experience at the highest level. We also need relationship with peers that are going through and learning the same lessons. Join us in getting best experience from the game and position we so dearly love.

" I highly recommend to any serious goalie the Video Game Review Nolan Schaefer and ROCK GOALIE has to offer. My sons game review started with a one on one video conference with Nolan and a Q&A (mental check up) with regards to how the current season was going. Nolan was attentive and offered up priceless anecdotal story’s of his own career that all goalies encounter and can relate to. Patriarchal is a word that comes to mind when describing his tutelage. He was particularly encouraging and understanding while providing solutions to the mental state of the game so valuable to a developing goaltender.
His game review was accurate, honest, precise and provided my son with instant results in his next game. Small little adjustments that produced profound results. I’ve hired many goalie coaches over the years and Nolan fine tuned some issues with a one hour video game review what others took 2 months to accomplish. He is the Mentor for a lifetime. "
