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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
