And what position does he play?

That is typically the question that comes after I mention that my son plays hockey. And when I tell them he is a goalie, the reaction is often surprise, occasionally tinged with pity (especially from other hockey parents) . Goalie is a high-pressure, high-visibility position that brings with it a roller coaster ride of ups and downs. I’ve heard more than once how goalies are a bit “crazy” and I’ve read how quirky and unique goalies can be. Being relatively new to the game of hockey and having a goalie in the house, I am still learning about the game and how to best parent a child who has chosen to tend goal. That is why I decided to start this blog – to share my experience and insights and seek feedback from others who may be on a similar path. I also hope to provide some information for those getting started in the fast-paced, exhilarating, exhausting world of hockey. Not being from a hockey background, so much is new to me and I haven’t always been able to find what I am looking for so I hope to fill in some gaps and learn more myself along the way. I welcome you and look forward to having some fun. We’ll see how it goes…

Hope to see you at the rink!
