So much super information for young goalies, Beauty! Just what the doctor ordered.
Don Cherry
Global Hockey Icon
A lot of coaches aren't that eager to work with the goalie at all. They should be working to refine the goalies craft throughout the season.
John Garrett
Former NHL Goaltender, Professional Commentator with Hockey Night In Canada
Chris provides what is missing from coaching programs and this is why this book is so important. Much of the information that is out there is too technical and unless you play the position it’s difficult to understand, so misinformation is given to the kids by minor hockey coaches who try to tell the goalies how they think the position should be played.
Rick Heinz
Former NHL Goaltender
Finally! Chris Dyson answered the questions no-one knew how to ask. After 25+ years involved in the industry, It’s great to see this grass roots level support and guidance for the most highly criticized, under- developed position in the game.
Don Straus
Founder Armadilla Masks, World Renowned Artist
Getting the essential core goaltending skills into the hands of grass roots coaches is perfect, it needs to happen. It is a discipline unlike any other.
Mike Stubbs
Professional Broadcaster & Radio Personality
If the advice contained in Chris‘ book is made mandatory learning for minor hockey coaches, it will positively change the face of goaltending in North America.
Joni Hallikainen
Former Pro Goaltender, Professional Goaltending Consultant, Professional Mask Builder & Artist
The game has dramatically changed, but one thing that hasn’t is the core fundamentals of goaltending. Coaches at every level must be able to understand and teach these.
Jim Ralph
NHL Broadcaster & Media Personality
Providing coaches with the skills to properly work with their goaltenders is awesome and perfect. I cannot imagine a single coach not jumping at the chance to take advantage of such an opportunity, especially at the grass roots level.
Larry Feist
Publisher, Hockey Now Magazine
As a coach, I would have loved more programs. I wanted to learn, to take one kernel of information and be able to grow a whole field of results. Tangible tools that could be taken away, imprinted and downloaded to the players and goalies.

I have never before seen information for coaches that was so useful, easily digestible, quick to read, and easy to implement. Hockey coaches and parents everywhere will be thrilled with this.
