The objective of the organization shall be to provide the opportunity for our youths to participate in organized skating and hockey programs to develop standards of good citizenship, sportsmanship, and respect.
Coach Paul DeVito has spent the last 30+ years coaching goalies from youth hockey through D1 college. During that time he has consulted for USA Hockey, and is currently on staff with multiple leading Goaltending Schools. In season coach works with the goalie at Worcester Academy and Shamrock Elite programs and maintains a list of private clients from Juniors through AAA youth hockey. His students are playing at Assumption College, The U.S. Military Academy, Springfield College, Hoosac School and St John’s, Shrewsbury, Wachusett, and Grafton, and Assabet Valley High Schools. During his playing days he played for Stoughton High School in the Hockomock League and Junior Hockey with the South Shore Braves organization.
As one of the founders of the Lakers Goalie Program Coach DeVito believe’s strongly in showing his goalies the life lessons learned from playing goal. Namely that playing goal requires hard work and a belief in yourself.
We are very pleased to have Paul coordinating our goalie development program this year!
