Chris provides what is missing from coaching programs and this is why this book is so important. Much of the information that is out there is too technical and unless you play the position it's difficult to understand, so misinformtion is given to the kids by minor hockey coaches who try to tell the goalies how they think the position should be played.

Providing coaches with the skills to properly work with their goaltenders is awesome and perfect. I cannot imagine a single coach not jumping at the chance to take advantage of such an opportunity, especially at the grass roots level.

A lot of coaches aren't that eager to work with the goalie at all. They should be working to refine the goalies craft throughout the season.

In the hockey world, there is one constant complaint heard repeatedly from parents and players alike.
The vast majority of coaches do not understand or know how to properly work with and develop their goaltenders. Many, however, believe that they do, resulting in confusion and frustration for coach, team, and goaltender.
This problem has caused dissension among parents, destroyed the confidence of many talented young goalies, and even driven goaltenders out of the game they love.
We are left with one basic question: "How do coaches rectify this major problem and properly develop their goaltenders, while keeping the game fun for everyone?"
Target Practice provides coaches with the proper steps and tools to understand what is required to work with and develop goaltenders of any age.
Coaching is a noble and often thankless job, but one caring people assume because they want to make a difference. No coach wants to be responsible for a young goaltender leaving the game -- yet it happens all too often!
This book is filled with the knowledge, insight, and support you need to effectively and efficiently work the Essential Core Goaltending Skills that all goalies require, want, and yearn for their coaches to help them develop.
In Target Practice, Chris Dyson shares his 30+ years of goaltender coaching experience in order to provide simple, easy-to-understand, progressive development techniques, as well as common mistakes and an understanding of what coaches must learn and be aware of when developing goaltenders.
This book will help you to understand how to properly teach and work with goaltenders of any age, knowing you will have been a positive influence in their lives and enhanced their enjoyment of the game.
