Stance and Body Positioning –  to maintain a simple foundation to move from

Technical Footwork – for the most efficient movement path pre and post save

Pivoting and Rotation – effectively utilize core to establish angle and positioning

Tracking – to effectively see pucks in and out of every save

Butterfly Principles – Take away 70% of scoring opportunities with proper butterfly positioning

Hand Positioning – Learn how to make hard saves look easy with simple arm and hand positioning adjustments
