At Goalie Army Academy we believe that in order to be an effective part of the team, a goaltender must ensure that efficiency is the main focus of every movement in games and practices through keeping one’s game simple.  In order to do so, a goaltender must focus on proper positioning & direct movements so that they may avoid rebounds by taking the puck or ring to the mid-section as much as possible.  During training sessions, we stress the importance of doing each exercise with proper technique in order to form good habits early.  Once the goaltender gains the essential knowledge of proper technique, we build on speed and explosiveness while continuing to fine tune potential gaps in the goaltenders game.
