When I′m on a breakaway I always look at where the goalie is. Is he out of the crease or back in the net? Both the shooter and the goalie are trying to do the same thing: make the other make the first move. When you′re the shooter you′re at an advantage because the goalie can′t really fake you out. So be patient and look for an opening.
MENTAL PREPARATION The game of goaltending is 80 percent mental. Prepare your mind before you hit the ice. Take five to 10 minutes and find a quiet spot where you can be alone to focus. Visualizing plays and seeing yourself make the right play will help you immensely. It may mean the difference between making a mistake and making the right decision at the right time.
The learning doesn't stop on the ice. Over the course of the year we'll bring in guest speakers such as police or firemen military service members or other professionals to talk to our players about things that are not directly related to the Xs and Os of the game. It's easy to get caught up on the scoreboard and standings especially with the playoffs just around the corner. It's important to remember to enjoy the journey and focus on the friendships that will last long after the final game is played.
