Is the coach a "goalie coach"? If so, his expectations of someone who just put on gear for the first time a few weeks ago is completely unrealistic. If he's just a coach, then I'm not surprised that he's frustrated with you as many coaches just expect you to be a target and don't take into consideration the difference in player and goalie conditioning.
That said, playing once a week isn't going to be enough for you to build up your stamina and improve your technique. Can you go to open hockey or even public skating to get some extra sessions in?
I'd also highly recommend is looking into Maria Mountain's goalie workout programs. Those will be great for not only building up your stamina, but improving your flexibility as well.
Either way, stick with it and welcome to the club!
