"So much super information for young goalies, Beauty! Just what the doctor ordered."

"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."

A lot of powerful messages

I am a Goalie mom and there are many frustrating and stressful moments that comes with that! This book really helps understand better how you can influence your goalie in both a negative (there are a lot of things we do that we do not realise) and positive way. This book I think should be read by every coach, parent and goalie out there!! It taught me a lot about the position and what really goes on to be good at it. (More then I ever imagined!) It taught me how to deal with my little goalie to help him through the tough times. I am very greatful that I was able to read this book and learn from it. If you have not read it I really strongly suggest you do! It has a lot of powerful messages in there. Chris has also been coaching my little guy for a few months and it has been an awesome experience for myself and my son! I am so glad that we connected with Chris! Thanks again for helping kids everywhere!

An important and valuable tool for coaches, goalies and particularly goalie parents

Target Practice is an important and valuable tool for coaches, goalies and particularly goalie parents. Target Practice drills down on techniques, tactics and the mind-set of a developing net minder. I look forward to the great potential of positive net minding results from young goalies who read and implement these valuable techniques guided by a passionate informed coaching staff and supportive parents. This publication is more than a "must read", it should be considered mandatory reading as it is a unique and revealing publication on the many aspects of goal tending. Congratulations to Chris Dyson in accomplishing this wonderful resource. Michael A. Charbon

This book is essential for all youth hockey coaches

My husband, goalie, and I agree that this book is essential for all youth hockey coaches. Our son has had both types of coaches described in this book, and he nearly quit the game a few years ago due to one of the negative coaches. Additionally, we had some issues with receiving our copy of the book. Although the US post office said it was delivered, we did not receive it. Chris Dyson sent us a new copy to replace the lost in transit copy, which we appreciated. Thank you for writing this book, and thank you for resending it to us!

Dyson has nailed the situation down perfectly

Incredible experience and information. Mr. Dyson has nailed the situation down perfectly and provided simple easy to understand material to help coaches and parents. So refreshing!! His backstory is amazing and I hope to connect in person someday to personally thank him for his dedication to the sport.

Fantastic info for any coach or parent

RIGHT ON, fantastic info for any coach or parent. Love the Certification course as well. We are looking to get all the coaches in our association signed up for the course this summer and the league is happy to pay for it. The goalies will be thrilled!!!

Two thumbs up!!

My husband coached from Initiation to second year atom and then we moved associations. I love this book and the info in it. I wish we would have had it sooner in our journey but I am so happy we still have lots of time to share it with our goalie and others. I would be very happy if this was required reading for every coach in every association . Thank you for taking the time to write this book and reach out to goalie parents and coached every where Two thumbs up !!

Real information that makes sense!

Wow, just WOW!! Thank you for telling the truth, helping coaches to understand the issues facing young goalies and providing the information that they so desperately need. My husband and I have encountered just about every issue covered in this amazing book, and we are now armed with the tools and knowledge to address many issues that caused our son to hate the game he loved. We took your book to our league and coaches and saw some wonderful changes beginning to happen because of your thoughtful words. Our son, once again, is excited to go to the rink! I am sure there are many others who have had the same experience, and we encourage all coaches and parents to get a copy of this book! We cannot thank you enough for this book and the wonderful information.

"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."

"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."

"I have never before seen information for coaches that is so useful, easily digestible, quick to read and easy to implement. Hockey coaches and parents everywhere will be thrilled with the content of this book!"

"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."

"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."

"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. "

"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."
