    you need to work on flexibility bro. I dont know if you work out, i take my lunch hour at work at just spend the entire time in my in house gym at work. Work on stretches, work on leg strength building. No better way around that, when i look at my videos from the last two years (been playing for 3 now) i can tell a huge difference in my flexibility and movement. simply put, stretch, work out.

    And thanks to my friend Matt for giving me pointers in the last few weeks there's a reason I like putting up footage, so better goalies can help me out he's been talking to me how to challenge more which I felt I was doing better In This one theres lots for me to improve and thats been a glaring one

    I've been playing on and off for three years now including almost 1.5 year of time off from injury in the last two years I'm aware I suck but I'm a gamer when needed i went to Las Vegas for the NCHL draft tournament and they finally sent me the video from February where I won the shootout for the B championship ive never won shit in hockey as a forward or goalie so this was a cool feeling

    That guy actually left the game so I think he got hurt and thank you, I think to make it feel natural and comfortable to my style of movement. If it looks lazy, it's cause I'm being lazy, this is more laidback than Anything. as for the straps it's all to everyone I would suggest starting semi loose and work your way around. Personally, I don't use boot straps and the pads I used leg straps on it was 2.5" at the toe ties before I switched to the monster hockey bungee style ones that are able to extend and go back to normal since they're elastic. for leg straps I had a loose knee strap and a semi loose calf one. Plus the elastic straps that's it with these warriors I use the elastic toe ties and the three leg elastic straps including the one below the knee for a very open knee landing

    well, had a game Friday, good game too. Camera somehow turned off after the first period, turned it back on, then some idiot missed the net by 5 feet and railed the cameras power button and got stuck and stayed off until last night, so heres 3 minutes of highlights lol

    I took off the awful wrist Velcro tabs for my C/A and used elastic bands instead, SOOOOOO MUCH better, and it stopped breaking my fitbit

    The first goalie is Matt, he has a rough time playing the puck but he plays out too, he's just kinda harder about trying to stop passes and poke away. I tend to be a little different with how i use my stick to take away shots only if needed, i've found that if i throw my stick out it'll most likely bounce to a player who can knock it in. Or in two cases, knock it in myself, I do however play the puck a lot in games since i do play out too. as for your gear, don't buy new, buy good condition pro stock or higher end used. As long as the internal plastics aren't broken, you'd be ok for a while on a lot of stuff.

    Take your time man, go to stick times and have a friend or two shoot on you for specific movements, gloves, and legs, going down and trying to take shots and controlling them. After a while you will realize you can actually redirect rebounds to the corners or far out. I had the same issues in the last three years since i began playing. Now i feel ive gotten better with movements and have improved as time has gone by. Look up goalie drills and butterfly techniques on youtube. You can learn so much.
  15. Are there any big changes to the Shin pads? Has anyone used these yet?
