Punisher Goalie Posted September 8, 2017 Share Posted September 8, 2017 Hello all: I am new to this forum - long time lurker, but this sub forum in particular has made me want to start posting. I'm planning to post my videos here in the hopes that anyone will be willing to give me some feedback and advice! A little about me: I'm 35 years old and have played ice hockey as a forward/defenseman since a young age. Was OK in high school, didn't play in college, started playing men's league after 10 years of being off the ice entirely. After several years of that, my interest started to wane as my skills leveled out. This year I decided to renew my love of this game by trying to play in net. My first time on the ice in goalie gear was in February and I immediately fell in love. Nothing fit correctly and I'm sure I looked like a moron out there, but it was the best time I've had on ice in a long time. It took me a while to acquire well-fitting gear, but I started playing regularly in April 2017. Haven't had any instruction yet, but I would like to. I watch any/all goalie-related videos on YouTube trying to learn. In my men's league team (joined up with a D4 team full time) I am starting to get my legs under me and had a solid summer season, including a championship win! So I'm taking every opportunity to skate at pickup or stick-n-pucks I can find and I try to film every session to learn as much as I can. Here's my first post for this forum: pickup session, mostly older guys, but a pace that is representative of my men's league team. I would love to hear ANY feedback anyone has regarding form, position, etc. Thanks very much in advance! I will keep posting here after each session. In case anyone is interested, my gear for this session: Mask: Sportmask Mage RS Leg Pads: CCM E Flex III Glove: CCM Premier Blocker: Reebok XLT C/A: Vaughn V7 XF Pro Carbon Pants: Bauer Supreme 1S Skates: CCM Tacks (with Step Xtreme) Stick: CCM Pro Stock (Holtby) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
