Tires for Deflections
A fun and skill developing drill for goalies.
- Set a tire face down at the outsides of each post. Make sure that they are both slighty behind the red line but mostly in front of it.
- Have your goalie in their stance centered at the top of the crease.
- Have your shooters shoot from above the top hash mark within the center of the face off circles. The shooters are to shoot at the tires to cause a deflection on the ice/ground into the net or off the tops of the tires into the top corners of the net.
- The goalie is not allowed to have any of the shots hit the tires. These shots would normally go wide but can easily be deflected into the net behind the goalie.
