Make More Saves

The difference between making the save and allowing a goal is a split second. Speed, power, agility and strength are skills that need to be developed. Using the resources on this site you will be able to find the information you need to help you develop these skills for yourself so that you can make more saves.

Build a Goalie Community

Being a goalie is a unique position in sports because it’s an individual position in a team sport. We are a rare breed. Goalies face issues that are unique to their position. I’d like to answer as many of your questions as I can and share this information with any goalie that may benefit from it. Please email me your questions concerning off ice training and I will post any information that may help improve your training.

Experience Fewer Injuries

Movement is all about kinetic chains. If there is a weak link in the chain chances are that is where the injury will occur. If you’re able to identify that weak link ahead of time then you have a better chance of remaining injury free. Using the tools on this site we may be able to help you find your weak link and strengthen your game.

Play With Confidence

Any one who’s spent any time in net knows that confidence plays a significant role in your ability to play at your highest level. Spending time off the ice developing skills that will translate to improved speed, skill, agility and flexibility on in the net can help improve your confidence and result in more saves.

  • Through doing specifically designed exercises the right way by working with Jim, I am stronger, quicker & more powerful, allowing me to have quicker movements and speed to square up to the puck fast. This all equates to more saves and no goals. I am a lot stronger holding the crease, when players crash the net these days.

  • Jim has helped me take my game to another level. He has helped me improve as a goalie in many areas, such as my core strength, leg strength, flexibility, and upper body strength. I have noticed that I am more explosive in the net and considerably more flexible. I would be unable to perform at this elite level without the off-ice training with Jim.
