This is a super simply lateral release drill for goalies of any age. A lot of folks like to bash the term “lateral release”, assuming it’s a buzzword used by goalie coaches. It’s not just a buzzword. The lateral release is a skating technique used by elite goaltenders at every level to simply NOT overslide the puck. When a goalie gets in complete control of their edges, they leave themselves in position more frequently than not. Get in control of your edges! Learn to use the lateral release as a valuable tool in your toolbox.
