Every goalie has a unique approach to their game based on their skills and athleticism. However, all goaltenders need to practice certain fundamentals and eventually add advanced techniques to be successful. Then, goalies have the ability to create their own style by choosing when and how to apply these skills and concepts in game situations.
Minnesota Hockey's goalie skill sessions feature a progression of skills starting with basics such as stance, positioning and goalie-specific skating before advancing to high level concepts including save selection, rebound control, breakaways and more. Each practice will be led by Minnesota Hockey's goalie development coordinator, Steve Carroll, and will feature some of the top goalie coaches in Minnesota.
Additional clinics will be scheduled in the spring of 2020.
There are a variety of goalie development drills and resources on the goaltending page on USA Hockey's website.
