Stickhandling Links

Pavel Barber – When it comes to stickhandling, Pavel Barber has been the best on YouTube for quite a long time. Here are a few links to some of his training videos:

Footwork and Stickhandling – A couple drills using an agility ladder while stickhandling.

Triple Toe Drag Drill – A very simple drill to work on your toe move.

Backhand Toe Drag – Working on a fancy move that can be quite tricky for defenders and goalies to read.


Goaltending Links

I never played goalie, but as a coach, I worked hard to learn about goaltending so that I could help my goaltenders. One area where my teams tended to make great improvements was at goaltending and a lot of what I learned came from YouTube videos.

I plan to put out a few goaltending videos myself, but in the meantime I want to share some links that helped me.

Stauber’s Goalcrease – Has some simple goaltending drills and fundamental skills. Even has a dressing tutorial.

PGD Goaltending – Only a few very old videos, but each one goes through solid fundamental skills.

KC Crease – Drills, fundamental skills, and professional analysis.

Pasco Valana – Goaltending techniques and fundamental skills.

Hope you enjoy. If there’s a good one I missed, please let me know.



This site is finally underway after sitting dormant for years. Still a long way to go, but I am in the process of getting the look right and adding information. Eventually, there will be a moderated forum, plenty of videos for skills and systems, and other information for IL hockey players and parents.
