Goaltender-Specific Skating Series: Drill 10 0f 20
Drill 10: 3/4 Crease Arc – Short Shuffle – T-Push
This simple drill combines the fundamental skating techniques of shuffling and the T-push.
The goaltender begins at the corner of the crease and short shuffles ¾ the length of the arc and comes to a complete stop.
The head and torso turn in the new direction of movement while a lead skate pivot is executed. The goaltender performs a straight-line T-push and returns to the goalpost.
The goalie steps off the goalpost and repeat the sequence as many times as requested by the coach.
Three to four repetitions should be sufficient.
All other technical considerations remain the same as previously described in this series.
