The 7th BLINDSAVE Goalie Camp was held during the last week of June in Cesis, Latvia. This camp was the biggest so far with a participation record of 110 goalkeepers from more than 15 countries.
Cesis is the place where BLINDSAVE has organised all of their goalie camps. It is also the place where Lekrings, one of the top Latvian clubs, is based. The 7th camp that was organised this summer, gathered together goalkeepers all around the globe, even from countries like Singapore, New Zealand and Korea. The participants also had great mentors guiding them through different practices, Pascal Meier, Viktors Klintsten, Mike Trolle and Janis Salcevics, just to name few.
According to Mr. Andis Blinds, the founder of BLINDSAVE Floorball and former national team goalkeeper of Latvia, this only shows that goalkeepers are missing the “goalie” knowledge and they are looking for coaching and more experiences:
– That is exactly the reason why we organise these camps. The mission of our brand is to help goalies both in better equipment and education. Besides we are very passionate about goalkeeping. We have created not only special programmes for goalie coaching but also devices, trainer equipment etc. If we take a look at similar sports where goalies are involved (soccer, ice-hockey), we can see that goalie coaching is already developed in quite high level, therefore if we want bring floorball to next level, we must pay more attention to goalies as well, says Blinds.
– Because of the high demand, we will also organise the first BLINDSAVE winter goalie camp with the target “Prepare for play-off!”. There will be a limited amount of participants, so we really can help goalies to prepare for the most important games of the year, Blinds concludes.
