Positive Reinforcement - A productive drive home
When I was younger the long drive back from a game made for a perfect time to reflect on my play. My father was always good at starting off by telling me all of the positive things he noticed in my game and then asking how I felt. This was very helpful for me to debrief about my own perception of the game and reflect on what I could have done differently. Whether it was a misread on a 2 on 1 or being impatient on a breakaway I was able to break down what I did and explore with my Dad how I can be prepared for the next time. This was a crucial part to my maturing and learning as a young goaltender.
