Goalie Clinic on Sunday

So Colin and I attended our first goalie clinic together on Sunday (yesterday).  We went into it a little unsure what to expect because we know that our coach works with a lot of kids and upper level goalies.  Turns out, we were the oldest participants and most of the goalies who attended were between...
