If you want to get started with a lot of drills, we recommend the following books as excellent resources.

  1. Hockey Drill Book - by a coach, for coaches. 200 drills including a chapter specifically for goalies, plus sample practice plans. I find this to be a great resource when looking for a drill for a specific skill you want to improve.
  2. The Hockey Play Book: Teaching hockey systems -- Another great resource for coaches. This great book shows you how to capitalize on your team's strengths and develop a system that works.
  3. Training for Speed, Agility, and Quickness -- This is an excellent reference for off-ice agility drills. It doesn't have hockey-specific drills, as it does other sports, but if you do any of the drills that mimic your on-ice skating, it will definitely help. It did for me!

I personally prefer Hockey Drill Book because it's a no-nonsense handbook with just diagrams and explanations, but they are all good.
