"This is a soup-to-nuts book that will benefit goalies at all levels. It makes the complicated seem simple, and it explains what a goalie should be thinking and doing in every imaginable confrontation with a shooter."

Keith Allain

"In this book, Brian Daccord has assembled a comprehensive approach to training goalies in the modern game."

This book really covers it all. From physical conditioning to being mentally strong Hockey Goaltending is stuffed with information. What I like most about this book is that it is so easy to pick up and read. You could flip to any random page, read it and feel like you learned something. I often just flip through it reading random sections the day of a game. It has full on and off season conditioning programs with all the different exercises used for it in the book. The DVD demonstrates many of the different exercises for the training program as well as most of the techniques from the book. Like I said before Hockey Goaltending covers it all and it's great for beginners and vet's of the position alike.

Brevity is a virtue. So I'll be brief.

This book's got everything, plus a terrific DVD.

The best goalie instructional manual on the market by a mile.

A totally essential purchase.

Nice resource for reiterating knowledge or adding to current goalie training repertoire. DVD adds a dynamic component to what's in print.
