Welcome to Distance Development!

About Distance Development

The two biggest factors that hinder the development of young goaltenders is the ability to get quality instruction and the distance a goaltender or coach is away from sources of quality coaching techniques. MEGA’s Distance Development Program is the solution to this age-old problem.Through the Distance Development Program MEGA will help each association establish a group of coaches that will be dedicated to their team’s goaltender development. This group will then participate in a variety of webinars, web based products, and Ebooks aimed to educate and equip coaches with the skills and knowledge to impact their goaltenders.
