Do you think that me switching to goalie specific classes means I'm going to work any less hard? I want to learn how to play correctly. I will be busting my butt so I can play in games. Do you think a coach in a class that has only *4* spots each week is going to put up with someone not giving it their all? Do you think that I'm going to slack off in the rink that I'll be playing in eventually?
I know you're a goalie too, but I ain't taking it easy.
My biggest issue is that I couldn't work out something with my coach and who told me that I *shouldn't* come to the class on Sunday for extra ice-time or practice the basic goalie skating moves.
Screw that noise. I want to be good and learn how to play the position right.
That was sarcasm man, you seem to work the hardest of anyone I know, just keep your mentality and eventually when you're stopping pucks left right and center, you'll earn the coach's respect, all though he doesn't seem to respect your work ethic now, he'll grow to.
