About our Goalie Program

The Shoreline Sharks are pleased to partner with Pro Crease Goaltending (PCG). Pro Crease is the largest exclusive goaltender-training program in Southern New England and the only organization that conducts a women's only camp every Summer.

The Shoreline Sharks believe that goalies need highly specialized training provided by a group of professionals who understand the complexities of the position and Pro Crease’s elite staff, led by Jared Waimon (Quinnipiac University-Assistant Coach and USA Hockey, Strelow Mentor) has delivered at multiple levels including numerous hockey organizations, prep schools, collegiate and at the professional level. Click here to learn more about Pro Crease by watching their video.



Along with the leadership of Jared, we are lucky to have two highly credentialed female coaches driving our program: Shenae Lundberg and Mackenzie Bruch. Together we've created a customized goalie training program focused on development and player advancement. 

Below are some of the key points.
