Bluehawks Welcome New Goalie Coach

The Bluehawks are pleased to announce that for the first time in club history, we have hired a full-time dedicated goalie coach. Some of you already know Roy Perfetti as the co-founder and co-owner of P.A.D.S. School of Goaltending. Roy has coached goalies with several organizations throughout the Midwest. The list of goalies Roy has trained range from Mites to Juniors along with college goalies. More information about Roy can be found on our Coaching Staff page.

In addition to running Monday night goalie clinics, Roy will attend team practices on Tuesday and/or Thursday evenings. Roy will try to be on the ice with each goalie (separate from goalie clinics) approximately one time per week. While coaches are running skating and skills drills, Roy will work with the team's goalies, running position-specific drills and reinforcing concepts taught at Monday night clinics.
