    highly reccomend

    Brian Daccord provides information that can be used by the beginner goalie and professionals. The text with pictures provide easy to understand techniques that will help to improve any goalie. The book is written in such a manner that would allow the goalie to read from cover to cover or skip to areas of specific need. This book is a must in the home of a goalie or anyone thinking of becoming a goalie.

    Great training tips for all levels

    My son is a Squirt AA travel goalie and he loves this book. He picked it out and after reviewing it, got his hockey coach (a goalie himself). Some of the training is advanced, but it can cover all ages.
