Sounds like a good plan, just don't get into bad habits, they are difficult to break.

To this day I struggle to keep my elbows tucked in when I drop into my butterfly, because when I was younger (and smaller), I wanted to take up more net so I flared my elbows out and to this day, I will give up goals under my armpits because of a bad habit I developed as a beginner

And just so you are aware, the thought process that you need to catch everything with your glove is in my opinion the worst habit a goalie can have.
