Goaltending Quick Hits

Postby MTNGoalie » Wed Apr 25, 2012 1:14 pm

On the Mind The Net Goaltending blog we have a new feature called "Goaltending Quick Hits" where once or twice a week we write about a goaltending related topic in no more than 2-3 paragraphs. So far we have finished four Goaltending Quick Hits and would like to share them on this GoaliePro discussion board.

Goaltending Quick Hit #1 - Working with Multiple Goalie Coaches

Goaltending Quick Hit #4 - Gaining that Competive Edge
http://mtngoaltending.wordpress.com/2012/04/25/goaltending-quick-hit-4-gaining-that-competitive-edge/

Any time a new Goaltending Quick Hit is published on our blog it will be posted in this thread.

If there are any Goaltending Quick Hit topics you would like to see please make sure to post in this thread. The topics can be anything goaltending related and we will do our best to eventually publish your suggestions. All suggestions are being compiled and the list continues to grow.

Also, any feedback on any of the Quick Hits can be posted here, or on the blog itself.

We hope you enjoy!

Travis, I was disappointed I could not get there this year, when I saw that you were going it compounded the disappointment.

You are in for a week long treat, enjoy!

Please have Larry Sadler get you to the Curry Palace.

Hello Greg,

Yes, it is too bad we won't be able to meet, but I can see us meeting in the future, somehow. I am excited about this opportunity for too many reasons to list right now. I love curry so I will definitely ask Larry if he is interested in going there for supper one night.

I will be trying to blog at the end of each day in Finland to keep people updated, or else my partner and staff with the goalie school might disown me.

Take care.

Other days the blogging should work, but you need to stay away from the keyboard after the friday evening and "coaches appreciation night" theme program :-)

Got it, Jukka. What happens at "coaches appreciation night" stays at "coaches appreciation night" or when in Espoo...

Anyways, here is Goaltending Quick Hit #10 - What type of goalie skater are you?

http://mtngoaltending.wordpress.com/2012/05/27/goaltending-quick-hit-10-what-type-of-goalie-skater-are-you/

What types of skaters are the members of this forum? What about you Jukka? Cuban?

Hover Power. Age has made all power more difficult to implement.

I like the article, and to me it reinforces the idea of teaching, a big shuffle, and a little shuffle as shuffle variations.
