The purpose of goalie sessions for U11 goaltenders is to continually be working on all of the fundamentals. Repetition of basic movements develops muscle memory, which is extremely important for this age group.
The main focus areas for the U11 group will be understanding their crease management as a lot of goaltenders play too deep in the net. There will also be a focus on the activation of their hands to prevent high shot goals as well as being patient and staying on their feet as long as possible, which will allow them to select the proper save on low/high shots and also on breakaways.
Sessions will also cover many more themes as the goaltending position is constantly evolving.
