    3. 3. The System The system, was developed over a period of 34 years by Bob Rule (Manhasset/Cornell/USA Team), was designed to make goaltending fun without having too much to think about. Manhasset has sent numerous goalies to D1 schools year after year. Names like Cordrey (Princeton), Meyer (Virginia), Kasselakis (Umass), Kenny (Georgetown), Meyer (Yale), Healy (Maryland), Murtha (Hopkins), Petracca(Carolina), and,Morelli (Bucknell), just to name a few. The greatest aspect of this system, is that it can be used by youth goalies as well as college goaltenders. Whether it be traditional or Five hole goalies, the principals are all the relevant.
    4. 4. Overview Basics Communication Drills/Warm-up Clearing Questions
    5. 5. Basics Holding the CrosseTop Hand-4-6 inches from throat of head. Bottom Hand-shoulder width apart from top hand ( can be adjusted to comfort) Arms away from body. Relaxed grip. (Tense muscles will inhibit quickness). Some instructors put their thumb on the shaft, we do not. Stance:Feet approximately shoulder
    6. 6. BasicsPosition in the cage: General Rule-1/3 of cage is covered by the body, 2/3 by the stick. One step out off goal line. (explanation)Steps-We use the step and close method. Step with the foot to the side of the shot and then close (bring feet together). We do this on Air or ground shots (Demo)Arc-Our goalies are taught an arc to follow ball movement from 3 O’clock to 9 O’clockHug The Pipes- when Att is coming from X, get to Pipe, Stand Tall, Hold your ground. As he passes pipe and hits 45 mark, Step
    7. 7. Communication Our goalies call out the ball, and the slides and communicate with the individual defenseman as well as the team. We feel this is an integral part of team defense, making sure everyone is alert to what we are doing. We have the team echo the calls. Call the ball!-Top center/ Top right/Side right/back right/Back center/Back Left/Side Left/Top Left.
    8. 8. Communication Talk to the man on the ball:Your Good/Drive/Hold/Who’s Hot/ Who’s two/Find one Call slides! Princeton/Cornell/Maryland/Duke/Blac k/Red Dog Break/Clear-Look for quick outlet, I not there take ball behind the cage and run clear.
    9. 9. Drills Ourdrills are designed to create muscle memory, focus and confidence. We try to do all of these drills everyday in pre-season and then rotate drills day by day in season, as not to get boring and repetitious Body Ball-(no stick)-Goalie assumes his stance with hands behind his back. Work the arc with bounce shots. Goalie steps and closes.
    10. 10. Drills Lead Hand Drill- Goalie assumes stance as if he his holding his stick. Work arc first with bounce shots, then in the air. Goalie punches and catches ball while stepping properly Middie Stick Drill-Goalie assumes stance with Middie stick-work arc bounce shots than in the air
    11. 11. Drills No Mesh Drill-Goalie assumes stance with goalie stick with no mesh. Bounce shots, goalie steps to ball. Warm up Drill-Goalie with regular stick assumes stance. Work arc with bounce shots, then in the air. Take a peek Drill-Goalie assumes stance in goal with a man screening him. He tries to get a look at the shooter and holds his mark. Easy shots, bouncers first, then in the air. Wall Ball- Cage about 5 yards from wall, goalie in cage. Coach stans behind cage and bounces ball off wall. (Reaction Drill)
    12. 12. Drills Pepper Drill-Goalie assumes stance- coach quick sticks shots back to goalie after save. Nice and easy Feeder drill- Attackman behind cage feeding shooter. Goalie turns with ball side feed. Again, nice and easy Outlet Drill-goalie assumes stance. Coach shoots at goalie, and goalie outlets to two middies standing on corners of the box. Goalie alternates between lob and rocket outlets. Hang Up Drill ,Attack starts behind with D man in front of cage…. D-Man goes behind forcing Attackman to weak hand. Goalie Wars-2 cages 15 yards apart, goalies shoot on each other and try to score.
    13. 13. Warm-Up When warming up a goalie we start slow and pick up the pace as we go. We finish with a shooter from the top of the box full throttle. Lead Hand Middie stick Goalie stick Pepper Feeder Shooter All Drills are worked on the Arc.
    14. 14. Keys to Goal Tending Athletic ability Technique Confidence Film Study/Preperation
    15. 15. Little Tricks of the trade Baiting-after making a save with posession holding stick down at hip level, drawing someone to check your stick and giving you a free clear Drawing an interference-You have an attackman standing directly in front of you with his stick straight up in the air. Throw the ball makink contact with his stick Box Fake-Clearing.Fake one way like you are throwing the ball that way(Box Fake) and throw it the other way
