"Goalies are a special breed. God Bless them. It sure ain't easy!"
words to live by for any coach, parent, teammate, etc......
I have known a great deal of goalies over the years and they all are special. It takes a special kid to be able to play between the pipes.... and they are all special in their own way.
embrace the fact that they are goofballs.... it's what makes them great! It's also why they develop bonds with each other unlike any other position in any other sport.
I believe it's better to have a Defensive minded coach over an offense minded coach when it comes to goalies. I've seen both and it's pretty obvious the D coach can relate way more to the goalie.
