Rep Level Goaltenders:
Provides Rep Level goaltenders with proper body control and technique. The goal here is to be able to "put the puck where you want it to go" allowing individuals to actively and successively take control of their game. Goaltenders will learn different actions like absorption, deflections, and placing.
Save Selections Focuses on the initial release point of a shot on net. We will break down puck trajectory and angles to demonstrate what works in different situations thus eliminating room for error.
Crease Movement Provides Rep Level goaltenders with advanced techniques to get from "point A to point B" as efficiently and quickly as possible. All crease drills will be activated by sight, triggering different responses thus keeping a game-like feel. The key to here is perfect repetition.
Puck Handling Provides Rep Level goaltenders with the ability to successfully move pucks, accomplishing smooth transitions, and taking control of their own end of the ice. Goaltenders will learn proper times and situations to get involved in the play.
Mental Consistency Provides Rep Level goaltenders with options to manage their mental game. All goaltenders are different and need to be approached individually. Goaltenders will learn strong, positive reinforcements that will balance their emotions helping them to reach their potential.
House Level Goaltenders:
Lateral Mobility Provides goaltenders with proper, structured techniques that allows for smooth and efficient movements. All basics will be covered such as: Shuffles, T-Pushes, Edging, Butterfly Slides, Overdrives, etc.
Recovery Provides goaltenders with skill sets used after a save is made. This process will be done by emphasizing strong visual leads and repetition.
Save Selections Focuses on the beginning stages of a shot and identifying where that puck is going in relation to the goaltender. We will break down puck trajectory and angles to demonstrate what works in different situations thus eliminating room for error.
Puck Tracking Provides goaltenders with strong visual habits. Through repetition, goaltenders will work out any problems they might have following the puck all the way into their bodies. Tracking doesn't just end there; goaltenders will also be held responsible for following the puck after the save is made, not having any "blank spots."
Positioning Provides goaltenders with concepts of angles and depths in different situations. Goaltenders will be shown the "Angle before Depth" principal to better understand what the puck sees and what advantages comes with it.
