Leg Pads. The following is a four-step guide to determine the size of a goaltender′s pads : Step 1 – Goaltender's skate size Step 2 – Measure from the floor to the middle of the kneecap Step 3 – Measure from the middle of the kneecap to desired height on thigh Step 4 – Add steps 1 2 and 3 for estimated size of leg pad.
The key to a backhand shot is the element of surprise. Since the shot is seldom practiced or used in a game many goalies aren′t used to the shot. They′re not used to how the puck is going to come off the stick whether it′s going to go low or high left or right. And when you don′t have to waste time moving the puck to your forehand you don′t allow the goaltender time to set up.
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.
Change with the seasons. Take advantage of the holidays that take place over the course of the season. We'll host various events to correspond with holidays such as Halloween Thanksgiving Christmas and the New Year. It can take a little extra effort but the same team effort you expect of your players on the ice can be beneficial off the ice if parents are willing to get involved.
