Dear Hockey Director,

Do you have a plan for your goalies? If you believe or,,, if you ever said “Goaltending is important”, it’s better not be the afterthought.

Hiring a good goaltending director is the very right place to start your goaltending program and here’s your checklist to go over with your goaltending director before the season.

Dear Hockey Director,

Do you have a plan for your goalies?

If you believe or,,, if you ever said “Goaltending is important”, it’s better not be the afterthought. Hiring a good goaltending director is the very right place to start your goaltending program.

Goaltending director is not just a “goalie guy (or lady)” who shows up few times a month and spend 7 mins with the goalies in the beginning of the practice to “warm ‘em up” before the full-ice flow drills.

Goaltending director is not only regularly working with the goalies on ice but also in charge of all aspect of the development and management of all the goalies of the club. He/she would hire assistant goalie coaches and student coaches in order to create comprehensive training environment for the goalies.

So basically, you just leave all the goaltending mater to the goaltending director and you don’t have to be bothered anymore.

NO! Hockey director still needs to discuss about the checklist below and work together to make sure the goalies are well taken care throughout the season,,, if you truly believe you need good goalies to build a great club.
