Goaltending Lightening 20

Aug. 24, 2020 at 3:58 p.m. MDT

"Goaltending Lightening 20", provides a foundation for all save selection. A shooter or coach begins with 20 pucks and is shooting at 60-70% velocity. The goal is to hit the target in the proper locations which allows the goaltender to practice specific movements. The progression is as follows: 5 low glove, 5 low blocker, 5 high glove, 5 high blocker. Be sure to give the goalie time to recover and execute a save. Depending on the time availability perform several repetitions. As a progression, notice how we can have the coach throw the pucks as opposed to shooting them. This allows for optimal accuracy and puck control.

Teaching Points

- Watch the puck into the gloves.

- Visually track the puck while centring on the puck and not the shooters body.

- Gloves are positioned ahead of the body.
