"You are what you are, by the habits you create." - Seth Appert
Your goalies are a key to your team's success, and goaltending is perhaps the most important position in all sports. Developing habits are critical to being a top notch goalie. Through a series of movement drills and game situations, Seth Appert takes you through a goalie practice with detailed instruction and feedback. He covers specific drills to help you learn fundamental foot movement, improve shot tracking techniques, and help with "next save" and "next play" focus.
The emphasis of this video is not for you to change your goalie's style of play, but instead show how your goalie can be their best within their own style. Practice starts with goalie fundamentals to provide a proper base to work with. It is said that 75% of the shots a goalie will face are basic, fundamental shots. It's what your goalie does with that shot that will either keep it routine, or create secondary scoring chances for the opponent.
Daily Drills for Fundamentals and Skating
Create muscle memory and correct common mistakes to get the most out of your goalies. Coach Appert provides over 10 drills to help goalies build strength in their game and get them positioned to stop pucks. These drills combine multiple aspects of previous drills to challenge goalies and prepare them to excel during games. Some of the drills include:
Coach Appert uses the whiteboard to illustrate the drills and demonstrates with instructional insight on ice to make this video a terrific learning tool for coaches.
Coaching goalies goes far beyond telling them to "just stop the puck." Investing time in improving your goaltenders will translate into improving the team as a whole. Even if you've never played or coached the goalie position before, this video will help you be able to provide insights and instruction to arguably the most important player on the ice.
"The biggest thing with this video is it has given me several ideas of what I can work on with my goalies in the absence of my Goalie Coach and the practice still being productive for the Goalies." - Customer Review
