*Braden Holtby doing Med Ball training.

Mitch is in his 2nd year with the Washington Capitals after 16 seasons with the Nashville Predators and previously seven seasons with the Buffalo Sabres, Mitch is celebrating his 25th year in the NHL.

His hard work, superb communication skills, ability to “dissect" a goalie’s game, and great sense of humor has gained him the respect and friendship of those he has coached and worked with at all levels. In 2010, “The Hockey News” chose Mitch as “one of the top 10 Genius’ in hockey”.

Fondly referred to as “Children of the Korn” (a phrase coined by Predator head coach Barry Trotz) these current and former goalies (many of whom are now coaching) have benefited from and helped spread the “goalie gospel according to Mitch”.

Besides having coached present and former pro goalies Braden Holtby, Philipp Grubauer, Justin Peters, Pekka Rinne, Carter Hutton, Anders Lindback, Chris Mason, Dan Ellis, Marty Biron, Mark Dekanich, Dominik Hasek, Tomas Vokoun, Drew MacIntyre, Pheonix Copley, Jeremy Smith, Magnus Hellberg, Marek Mazanec, Devin Dubnyk, and Mike McKenna, Mitch has coached and influenced many others who have (in the past) or who are currently coaching professionally. They include: Ben Vanderklok (Nashville), Steve Briere (Toronto), Mike Valley (Dallas), Mike Dunham (Islanders), Wade Flaherty (Winnipeg), Mike Bales (Pittsburgh), Grant Fuhr (formerly Phoenix), Steve McKichan (formerly Toronto), Corey Hirsch (formerly St. Louis), Clint Malarchuk (formerly Calgary), Olaf Kolzig (development for Caps), Scott Murray (AHL for Caps), Steve Shields (formerly AHL now Univ. of Michigan), Ty Conklin (AHL for St. Louis), and Bob Janosz and Seamus Kotyk (both development for Buffalo).
In addition, Mitch has trained countless others who now are in the "goalie business" coaching, scouting and training a "new generation" of goaltenders at various levels. Some include Nick Petraglia, Chris Economou, Justin Goldman, Josh Hand, Bill Pye, Jerome Bergquist, Robb Stauber, Aaron Kinslow, Alan Avery, Karl Goehring, Laura Pecchia, Eric Sorenson, Bill Horn, Shane Connelly, Nick Blanchette, Mike Lane, Chris Carter, Craig MacDonald, Rich Shulmistra, Dan Kodatsky, etc. Mitch is truly a teacher and a mentor.

Mitch has nearly 40 years of organizing and running summer hockey programs. Mitch will personally do all the coaching for each Goalie Camp. He is absolutely “hands on”.



*Pekka Rinne training with the same "reaction cones" our students will use.
  • Mitch teaches all aspects of the Goalie Schools.
  • Who can match 25 years of NHL coaching?
  • Does anyone have a better resume of pupils?
  • Our system is not just theory...it works!
  • Our Defenseman Program is run by Patrick Higgins. Nobody breaks down the position better than Patrick.
  • Mitch will personally answer any question you have via phone or email.
  • We just don't hammer pucks at the goalies.
  • Each goalie will definitely be a much smarter goalie when they finish with our camps.

One of the best weeks of Michael's life. He is still smiling. Cannot wait to get on the ice and show his team what he learned. Thanks again Mitch Korn, John, Justin and Sam for an incredible experience.

Mitch, wanted to let you know that my daughter's goalie Matt Brown who went to your camp this summer stood on his head yesterday in our first game of the season and was the star of the game. His dad said that your camp made a huge difference!! Hope all is well.

I wanted to write a quick thank you for the goalie camp at Kettler at the end of July.  I am the adult goalie who had to go back to work unexpectedly and missed the last day.  I learned a huge amount and am very grateful for the opportunity to have worked with you and your assistants.  In particular Scott was very helpful.  All the training aids were very valuable, as you know.  The involvement of the Capitol’s staff and players were a great extra bonus for a caps fan like me.   Thank you again.
