Practice outline Saturday Jan 19 Merivale 10 – 2

Posted: January 17, 2013 in Uncategorized

We will continue to work with goalies thanks to Travis and Liam.

I am a little concerned that if one player on the team  is consistently working on being a goalie there will be a plateau in their skating development. None of our goalies can safely do the skating drills in full gear. I will let you know where we go on this. Until then I hope any player who wants to try will get the chance!


WARM UP Skating with the small tennis balls.
