Two shot drill using the @x_tracker emphasizing correct posture, head trajectory and tracking down on the puck with @taylorliotta96 and @jamesxdebrito
This drill can be done without the @x_tracker but it’s even more effective with it. The device does not allow any short cuts.
Key points we are emphasizing in this drill include:
1. proper posture in stance with a spine angle of approximately 45 degrees placing the shoulders slightly forward of the knees and the head slightly forward of the shoulders. The chin is tucked down and the eyes are on a downward trajectory to the puck.
2. Quiet eye - narrow the focus down into the puck with the eyes remaking fixated on the puck fro start to finish
3. Drive the knees hard to the ice into the butterfly. Hips stay back, shoulders forward, chin down, nose to the puck. Head hovers over top of the puck.
4. Contact the puck forward of the body in stick rotations. Same with hands. Nose to the puck on every save.
5. Visual attachment. Head and eyes stay locked on the puck after every save. Follow it in, follow it out. Effective recovery requires knowing where the puck is immediately. The head and eyes are key. No delayed recoveries.
6. Visual lead - early eyes. Head and eyes lead the way. Find the puck quickly. Gather information and use to to determine where the puck is going and how you should respond. - 1 day ago
