First day at Phil Martin's Goalie Academy

We just concluded the first day of this year's edition of Phil Martin's Goalie Academy. The on-ice session was followed by some good off-ice which should benefit all the goaltenders. Most importantly, all the goaltenders enjoyed themselves.

We also go some video of both the on-ice and off-ice session so we can review the drills, address any issues we didn't see at the time and show how the drills should be done properly.

This year's edition of Phil Martin's Goalie Academy promises to be the best one yet!

Goalie Glove Buyer's Guide

The goaltender glove is the most versatile piece of equipment. Not only is it used to make amazing saves, it is also used to cover up loose pucks and handle the stick. Having a good glove is therefore extremely important to ensure good goaltending performance. This buyer's guide will help you assess which glove is best for you!

Articles in the pipeline

It has already been 3 days since we released our first guide How to put on goaltender equipment but we haven't been sitting idle! We have plenty of ideas for articles and are planning on adding more drills and guides soon. The last few days have been dedicated to ensuring these articles will be accessible and organised while complete (this means a few logistical problems to solve on the software side). 

In the next few days, I plan on bringing you a comparison on stick materials, advantages and disadvantages and what may be best for you (also touching on the engineering side of things). Not specifically a buying guide but more an overview of what is available. Once this information is available, it should pave the way for goalie stick and player stick buying guides as both have different sets of requirements.

In the meantime, if you have any comments or suggestions please let us know!
