G1 Extreme Goaltender drills:
LADDER BUTTERFLY (SIDE-TO-SIDE MOBILITY)
Proper technique is crucial for proper use of the butterfly. Turn the G1 Extreme sideways, and the butterfly can be practiced on a shorter length. Goaltenders learn to recover properly, using the outside leg, in order to react to rebounds and re-directions. Consistent use of the butterfly on the G1 Extreme will result in better technique and quicker reaction time.
FULL LENGTH BUTTERFLY (POWER TRAINING)
A full 8 ft butterfly can be executed on this training system. Add power and stretch to your butterfly. Here you will concentrate on keeping your glove and blocker in the proper position, as well as keeping yourself "tall" while in the butterfly. Once you have mastered the butterfly technique using a full 8 ft slide, you will greatly improve your speed on the ice when sliding from post to post.
ROTATE TO BUTTERFLY (SQUARE TO SHOOTER)
Start square to the shooter on the top corner of the G1 Extreme. Pivot to your right or left and execute a full butterfly diagonally backward to the opposite side of the Extreme. This movement demonstrates a shot you would face from a pass across to the back door. When this situation arises in a game, a butterfly will allow for quicker recovery than a traditional two-pad stack. Take this opportunity to work on your weaker side, keeping proper technique.
POKE CHECK (PERFECT THE MOTION)
Place three pucks on the edge of the Extreme. Position yourself at the bottom of the Extreme board, and begin in your stance. Execute the poke check one puck at a time, concentrating on your form and stick extension. The puck will slide just like it would on ice. Once puck is checked, recover to your butterfly, and then to your feet. Should you miss the check, cover the puck. Poke check with more confidence and power after perfecting the technique on the G1 Extreme.
PUCK Control (SKILL & STRENGTH)
Stick handle with two hands, and then with just one. Practice moving forward and backward with the puck, while keeping your head up. The puck will move just as it does on ice. This exercise will help you gain arm and hand strength, and will greatly improve your game. This is a skill that most goalies do not master. Learning to handle the puck will give you and your team an edge, by maintaining puck possesion.
PUCK MOVEMENT (SHOOTING & PASSING)
Again, this is a crucial skill for goaltenders that is commonly overlooked. Working on passing with one hand, and then with both. Work on your positioning on the puck, and your follow-through after the shot. This drill will improve your wrist and arm strength. This is a skill that will be beneficial to you and your team. You can lead a break out by passing the puck. By improving your passing skills, you will keep the puck out of your defensive zone, and quicken the pace of the game.
SIDE TO SIDE (SHUFFLE)
Balance, speed, and strength are gained while performing the post-to-post technique. A series of distances are available, ranging from 3-ft. to 8-ft in length. This exercise can be done with or without goalie pads. Focus on keeping glove, blocker, and stick well positioned while in motion.
T-Push Challenge - Return To Post
Learn to challenge a shooter with authority. The T-push technique, combined with the control of stopping while squaring to the shooter is developed. Forward and backward mobility is learned, focusing on technique and movement. Concentrate on the positioning of your glove and blocker. This will directly result in proper positioning of your stick.
