Goalie Training: Balancing Flexibility and Mobility for Optimal Performance

Hey there, Ice Hockey Goalies!

Your off-ice goalie training routine probably involves some stretching. And while stretching is important, it’s the combination of flexibility and controlled movement that creates true mobility. This is key to making more saves and reducing injury risk on and off the ice. Controlling your active range of motion is essential for goaltenders to get to save in just the right amount of time.
