switching back to goalie

Its a been a LONG time since I played goalie and well....I wasn't to good at it either. Seeing that a lot of you play goalie, I was wondering if you can help give me some pointers to increase my reaction speed and agility.

Check stores for those odd shaped balls that will bounce unpredictably when dropped.
Throwing a ball against a wall and catching it might help too.

Throw in some squats and some footwork drills with a rope ladder and you're off to a good start.

Thanks man. I use a tennis ball, I never thought of one of those crazy balls. I've been working on my squats and even more on my endurance. footwork drills are brilliant. Thanks again.

Well, I have a couple of goalie tips that you can read that will help.
But they are on another forum...sorry deangamblin. I would put all of the coaching tips on your site if you make a special section for coaching tips.

Read the goalie tips here:

Well, I would be more than happy to submit coaching tips as much as I can on this forum. If I could get the main guy to design a section for coaching tips, I will post all of my tips here.

On another note. Thanks for the kind words. I am glad someone is reading them and I am not just spinning my wheels.

My skating is good, I'm trying to work on my positioning. My friend told me (he's a goalie as well) Keep your bellybutton square with the puck and I will be perfectly positioned to the puck. is that true???

yea, because your bellybutton is in the center of your body, so if you bellybutton is square to the puck you are going to be covering all parts of the net evenly.

are you playing a butterfly style or a more stand up style? i play a stand up style. its actually more of a hybrid. i play it because im pretty big, 6 4 185 and cant get up fast from butterfly but when i have one knee on the ice instead of going down in the full butterfly i can get up much quicker and back to position.

another important thing is make sure you know where you are in the net and come out to the top of the crease, cut down the angle. also dont leen forward. dont have all your weight on your toes because you wont be able to move from side to side quickly. when you are moving side to side use a "T-slide" if you have to move far, other wise just push off with the opposite leg of the direction you want to go in. dont get your skates too sharp. you wont be able to move laterally

I am a stand up goalie. I'm not very big 5'10. 150 (I'm working on getting up to 165) I can get down and up from the butterfly pretty quick though. I am light on my feet. I can move around fairly well. in my net. My biggest problem is positioning and my blocker side. I have a pretty good glove hand. But my blocker is pretty slow.

nobodys blocker is as fast as their glove. its because you have a heavy stick in it. the thing with your blocker hand is that you have to keep your stick on the ice between your legs and if a puck is shot towards your blocker dont try and swat at it, jab at it and knock it down. if you get good you can angle the puck to a teammate or in the corner

I know you dont swat at it. I'm just slow on getting to it.

What I do for that is give them a slight bit more net on the trapper side because I'm amazing with my trapper but then if they shoot bottom corner on that side I'm kinda screwed but it's all good, it works out for me except for the fact that I've converted to a player.

Sounds like you need a bit of all but the strength training you find in these videos.
http://athleticstage.uop.edu/Athleti...ion%20Menu.htm


Do you have an agility ladder or need intruction on how to build your own? What is your occupation? Are there situations which you can use to aid your training.

For instance, in my work as a machinist, operating automated equipment that would spit out a small part every few seconds, I used the eject components for speed and reaction. When the machine spit out the small completed part, it would travel down a small 3" diameter PVC tube, downard into a catch pan. this was every 4.5 seconds. There was a gap of about 1.5 feet between the end of the eject tube and the catch pan. I would take a minute or two many times through out the shift to just stand and catch/snatch each part mid-air , transfer to my opposite hand and drop into another bin.

There are many things we do in our daily grind that can be adapted to help us reach our conditioning goals. Keep your eyes and mind open and you will find them.
