SCFHA Brock Jr. Badgers Goalie Development Program
The SCFHA Jr Badgers are leaders in Goalie Development and have long recognized the importance of great goalkeeping. Goaltending is a critical aspect of team play and requires direct & consistent unique coaching skills. Just as forwards and defenders get specific coaching for their respective positions, goalies require the same attention and guided skill development.
There is special focus on footwork, angles and positioning, puck tracking, hand eye co-ordination, proper save selection and situational awareness tailored to the athlete’s level. All the nuances of goalkeeping are taught to help them be successful in this highly specialized position. The puck stops here…
The Brock Jr. Badgers have committed to this and have joined forces with one of Niagara’s very best off ice and on ice goalie developers in Luc “Lobby” Lobsinger.
Luc Lobsinger was born and raised in Burlington, Ontario and graduated from Brock in 2012 with a bachelor's degree in Physical Education. Following graduation, he began his coaching career as an assistant coach with the Men's Hockey team, a role he remained in for two seasons from 2012-14.
The following season Lobsinger was hired as the goaltending coach for the Niagara IceDogs of the Ontario Hockey League. After spending one season with the IceDogs he returned to Brock serving as the Goalie Coach for both the men's and women's hockey teams.
That same season he also represented Switzerland, working with their goalies throughout the 2016 IIHF World Women's U18 Championship alongside Brock women's hockey coach Margot Page. Some highlights of Luc’s time at Brock include being part of the 2017-18 Men’s Hockey OUA West Championship team, representing Brock at the 2018 U SPORTS Men’s Hockey National Championships, and helping goaltenders Clint Windsor, Logan Thompson, and Jensen Murphy win OUA Goaltender of the Year awards.
All three of which have moved on to professional hockey: Thompson signing with the NHL’s Las Vegas Golden Knights, Windsor with the Syracuse Crunch of the American Hockey League, and Murphy who joined the Professional Women’s Hockey Players Association.
