Welcome To My Blog!

Being a hockey mom just BEGS to be written about so when my daughter strapped on the goalie pads, I picked up the pen. Now I blog rink-to-rink keeping the world of youth hockey real AND real funny.

Through the highs, the lows and the all consuming stink, follow me on my journey to get through each season. Us hockey parents have to stick together!

Moving Into The Goalie Age Of Youth Hockey

Just recently an exciting new initiative has been created by USA Hockey in an effort to create a goalie culture. For a while now youth hockey goalies have generally been left to their own devices for training. Either you hired a private instructor that worked with your goalie outside of practice or you relied on the pucks being shot at them during practice. 

Not often did you find a team that would have a dedicated goalie coach.

USA Hockey recognized the need for proper goaltending training and just announced its new initiative. Based off a Finnish model where goaltending is practically revered, the new ADM program is going to elevate goaltending to a new level.

I had the opportunity to sit down with Larry Gibson, Goaltending Development Coordinator for the state of Arizona to discuss the new initiative and its impact on American born goalies.
