The primary focus will be the accuracy and efficiency in movement and balance of hands, feet and stick, goalies will find that this focused goaltending requires a refining of save choice habits, save-recovery identification. During these on ice sessions, goalies will grow through an intense program, which pushes each goalie to continually grow his technical base and situational efficiency. As with the base stage mobility and balance with movement and save selection are crucial during this phase. The movement will address Lateral, Vertical and Slant movement.
