Drill of the Week: Goalie - Angle Introduction

By CoachThem, 03/04/21, 1:45PM EST


Teaching angles and positioning to netminders


  • Pucks start outside the blue line, pylons are placed across the blue line and the goalie starts on the goal line.
  • Player picks up a puck and randomly selects a pylon to drive around.
  • Once the goalie recognizes which pylon has been selected, they step out on angle with the attacker.
  • Once around the pylon player takes a few strides towards the net and releases a shot.

Key Points

  • Goalie stays deep in the middle of the net until the pylon has been selected. This allows the goalie to gain a familiarity with proper angle positioning.
