This is a drill designed to work on one very simple thing. Making sure that when the goalie squares up, he / she is squaring up to the puck and not the shooters body. So many young goalies make the mistake of squaring up to the shooters body, thus aligning themselves out of position.

? by: spronse01 – good simple drill. Read all the way through for a simple yet super important positioning comment. “@carsonpoulin getting a chance to break in his new Ventus SLR2 set up from @vaughncustomsports in our lesson yesterday. Carson was working on a quick shift into a midline shot after accidentally pushing out to the shooters body rather than the stick. This is a common mistake and having a plan to combat it will allow you quickly make the adjustment.
