2 Hour Goalie Lesson!

Hey Guys!! So today Colin and I, for our last lesson with Reed, did a 2 hour long lesson. I've never done longer than a split one hour session so let me tell you, that was a workout! But it was a workout in more ways than one... I know that's a cheesy way to... Continue Reading →

Pickup: First game in ~6 months!

Hey guys! So this morning Colin and I went to a pick-up session, my first "game" in about 6 months. I was rusty to say the least.

I Got Pulled From Practice?!

Okay so yesterday we had another lesson with Reed and I was already feeling like it might not be the greatest practice session.

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...
