The Goalies Inc. system's "Power Skating" instruction is broken into two sections: Off-Ice Explosiveness Training and On-Ice Skill Development. Participants will learn how to properly execute all edge skills and learn when, where, and why applying these details within these skill-sets will make them a more efficient goaltender. Every skating skill we instruct, is to learn and maintain top performance. An aggressive stance, edge control, proper balance, unified movements and transitional movements are all instructed on a progressive basis. This will allow each player to work at their own pace and retain all information taught to obtain maximum success.
Balanced and controlled movements are vital to a goaltender's growth as an athlete. His or her ability to move within the crease directly relates to how effective he or she will be at stopping the puck. The power skating portion of this program consists of skating only, no pucks. Practicing the movements without pucks helps the goaltenders train through repetition and develop muscle memory in order to create good habits. The addition of "Explosiveness" training helps to build our player's strength and flexibility, which are critical to their success on the ice.
