Lead Side Focus: Interview with Eli Wilson

One of my favourite things is learning from goalie coaches, it’s why I am already looking forward to the Network Goaltending Symposium that isn’t until JUNE!

Here’s why I love it:

  • most goalie coaches are just awesome people
  • they teach me where goalies struggle, where they have weaknesses that make them vulnerable
  • they share a concern for the goalies long term health and success
  • they help me understand the different positions and postures goalies need

In the last two weeks I’ve had the chance to chat with Eli Wilson, Mitch Korn and Steve McKichan.  I am going to share my discussion on camps, post reaches and lead side focus with Eli (www.EliWilsonExclusive.com) today… just click on the player below to listen in:

We went on to discuss:

  • having a ‘today’ focus for long term success
  • opportunities for smaller goalies
  • head movement on the ice
  • on a scale of 1-to-10 how important is it for goalies to do the splits
  • what is a good distance to be out from the net
  • goalie skate profiles – which is the best
  • what changes should be made to goalie equipment
  • the common factor the most successful goalies in the world share
