This drill will help goaltenders improve their skating skills. Forward and backward telescoping, shuffling and t-pushes. It is a very good drill to learn or improve the basic skating skills of a goaltender.
This drill is done with the goaltender in his basic stance throughout. The goaltender starts in his crease and T-pushes until he reaches the boards. He then telescopes forward until he reaches the ringette line (top of the circle). He shuffles back to the centre of the ice and finally telescopes back to his net. The drill is repeated on both sides.
- For more advanced goaltenders, you may replace the t-pushes and shuffles by butterfly slides and hybrid slides.
