Jewer Elite Goaltending was founded by former goaltender and now goaltender coach, Doug Jewer. The goal of JEG (Jewer Elite Goaltending) is to provide elite level coaching to elite level and developing goaltenders from all areas of the globe right here on the rock. At JEG we try to focus on each individual goalie themselves. Our on ice sessions operate in groups of 2,4, and 6, never larger to ensure that head coach Doug Jewer can tend to all goaltenders and so that each goaltender can have his or her own net with their own shooters for the entire session. This way the drill can be catered to each goaltender's needs and skill level. All on ice sessions and drills are recorded via go pro and camcorder for further breakdown and instruction. Shooters at our camp are either paid or invited. Our services include programs, camps, off-ice training, game tape breakdown service, and to a select few we offer an family advisory/representation program. For more details visit the programs area.
Raised in St. John's, Doug grew up playing local minor hockey with the Avalon organization, now known as the Avalon Celtics. He represented Newfoundland & Labrador at both the U-16 and U-17 levels and was a member of the St. John's AAA Midget Maple Leafs team that finished third in the nation. After Midget AAA Doug moved on to play in the CJAHL (now the CCHL) having a successful career with the Kanata Stallions; 2006-2007 CJAHL League MVP, 2006-2007 Top Goaltender, multiple other awards and receiving a full scholarship to NCAA Division 1 Northeastern University. Unfortunately during a promising freshman year as a starter in NCAA Hockey East, Jewer got injured. Injuries continued to plague his collegiate and university career. After transferring to Carleton University and playing for the Carleton Ravens in CIS competition Jewer returned home to graduate from Memorial University with a degree in International Business and compete semi-professionally in the West Coast Senior Hockey League where he won a Herder championship with the Grand Falls Cataracts. After a series of more injuries, and continued injury trouble, Jewer retired but the passion never died. Instead he has found a new passion, passing on his knowledge to young, aspiring goalies, whom require guidance and skills development.
"I am a constant student, always trying to make myself a better coach and mentor for my goalies. The game is evolving and the position of goaltender must do so as well. My aim is to focus on the individual goalie, his individual needs and requirements, and work together with that goalie in a more focused setting so that communication between myself and the goalie is of the essence."
