photoThe staff of BERTAGNA GOALTENDING is available for small- group and private tutoring throughout the season. Two methods are now being used:

Last winter, Joe worked with a number of organizations including but not limited to Beverly Youth Hockey Association, Brattleboro (VT) YHA, Brookline YHA, Cape Ann YHA, Framingham YHA, Marblehead YHA, Needham YHA, North Star YHA, Top Gun and others.

2) Joe will return to the Holland Arena in Woburn, Massachusets, for his weekly Sunday afternoon clinics. These are scheduled for 12:10-1:10 every Sunday starting September 8 and going through February. (March may be added.)

Cost of these sessions:

Option #1: Pay in advance for four or more sessions and pay $50 per session.

Option #2: Fewer than four sessions in advance, $60 per session.

It was the summer in which the Watergate drama reached its conclusion in the resignation of a president. Eric Clapton sang, "I Shot the Sherriff." Moviegoers went in large numbers to see "The Sting" and "Godfather II". And Joe Bertagna was teaching skate saves and two-pad stacks to young goalies at hockey camp.

Announcing a new instructional DVD from Joe Bertagna!
photoFormer Boston Bruins goalie coach Joe Bertagna has completed his fourth DVD for Championship Productions of Ames, IA. This one is titled, "Goaltending Today: Traditional Values through New Techniques." Filmed this summer with former NHL netminder Mike Morrison, and enhanced this winter with UMass goalie coach Mike Buckley, this DVD shows how many of the newer techniques employed by today's top goalies are used to reach familiar goals of proper positioning and puck control.

Mike Morrison
Former NHL goaltender Mike Morrison will continue in a leading role in working many in-season clinics for Bertagna Goaltending. Mike, who attended Joe’s clinics as a youngster out of Medford, MA, went on to an outstanding career in prep school (St. Sebastian’s), college (the University of Maine) and the National Hockey League (Edmonton, Ottawa, and Phoenix.)
We have seen quite a few changes in the instruction we have offered for almost four decades. At first, we only coached goalies and our goalie clinics are still what occupies our staff the most. But even the goalie instruction has changed. Families are not content with limiting their instruction to a single week in the summer. They want help all year round. They might want to attend once a week instead of five straight days. With costs and busy family schedules, they might want a shorter clinic. And they want personalized attention. And so we have adapted to give familes what they want.

We also have worked to stay "current." With the addition of younger staff, recently out of college or professional hockey, we have made sure to stay up with changes in the game. Joe and his staff are available year-round for youth hockey organizations. We now offer a variety of summer sessions, Three-day, four-day and five-day options are available, as is a once-a-week option. We are also busier in the fall and winter than ever before. And each spring, we offer instruction for adult women hockey players (not just goalies) as interest in women's hockey has really taken off.

We hope you consider one of the many options we offer, all of which are designed to help you play better and enjoy the game more. The fact that we are in our 38th year is living testimony to what thousands of hockey players have enjoyed by coming to us for instruction.

Have Joe or His Staff Observe Your Game

Joe or a staff member will attend and observe a game and write up a detailed analysis of what you have to work on. To arrange for this service, contact Joe at
