Day 17 – The Goalie Guru

This is the 17th day of our team’s virtual summer training camp. Each day for the next four weeks, there will be a short assignment for you to do to prepare for the upcoming season. These assignments are mandatory for players and coaches. Parents are also encouraged to participate.

If you’re a goalie, today is for you. Even if you’re not a goalie, you should watch the videos and complete today’s assignment. Being able to “think” like a goalie may help you come up with strategies to score more goals.

As I’ve said before, you can learn just about anything you want on YouTube.

Much like Pavel Barber’s stickhandling channel, Maria Mountain has created a fantastic set of training and practice videos on YouTube. Her GoalieTrainingProTV channel is a go to resource for hockey goalies.

Here is a sampling of her work…

Today’s Assignment:

  1. Complete today’s workout on the TeamBuildr app. Be sure to mark each exercise complete as you finish it.

IMPORTANT: If you have other sports, camps or are doing a different workout that you’d like to substitute on any given day that is okay. Please make a quick note of what you did that day under the ALTERNATE Workout in TeamBuildr. It is still important to complete the stickhandling and shooting every day that it is scheduled. But it is okay to move it to another day of the week when you aren’t quite as busy. Even when you’re on vacation, you should still be trying to find time to get in your workout.

  1. Check out the GoalieTrainingProTV YouTube channel. Post a link to a video you like from the channel to the team WhatsApp group. (Even if you’re not a goalie, you should watch the videos and complete today’s assignment. Being able to “think” like a goalie may help you come up with strategies to score more goals.)
