Goalie Skating Drills (or is it skating drills for goalies?)

 

I speak goaltender, not fluent english. For that, I apologize.

Regardless, skating is one of the single most important things a goaltender does. Aside from actually stopping the puck, skating puts a goalie in a position to actually make the save. A good skating ability is imperative in today’s game, with shooters getting faster and shots getting harder.

Whether you’re a large goaltender or a small goalie (especially so if you’re a small goalie with big aspirations), you’ve got to learn how to skate. We’ve put together a list of some of the best goalie skating drills out there. This list will grow, be patient with us.

Each week, we release one piece of our premium (unreleased) content to our email subscribers. Want in?
