It's the greatest position in all of sports. It is also the loneliest, most challenging, most rewarding and most difficult position in all of sports. When the goalie makes a mistake, everyone in the arena knows it. Contrary to popluar belief, the goaltender has to be athletic, a strong skater and hockey smart. A goalie has to be able to read the play, react to the play, and have the endurance to last the entire game.
Are you an older goalie needing help with the modern game? Are you new to hockey and want to learn the position? Are you an adult fan that wants to play goal? Maybe you're a parent not satisfied with your child's level of goalie coaching from the organization he or she plays in? Are you tired of training that seems to help the shooter but frustrate goalies? Sometimes all it takes is some fresh and different trained eyes to spot deficiencies.
