How to register:
One of the key development tools for successful goaltenders is video analysis. SIG uses the state of the art technology of Dartfish software to analyze goalies that recognize how using technology can assist tremendously in skill development. Stop It Goaltending offers three video services. Goalie IQ Lessons are provided to goalies in the spring who want to learn more about the strategic side of the position by watching a video. Goalies can have a current game analyzed by SIG video coordinator Brian Robinson or a total technical analysis which consists of 10 specific drills filmed at one of our development centers.
