Coach Garman believes that the best goalies take a complete approach to their game. This means you can’t just be a great skater, you must also understand how to manage your emotions. More than that, you must fuel your body well and make sure your fitness training is specifically geared to help you in the crease. When you get 1% better here and 1% better there, your small improvements combine to create significant advantages. This is how you become great. The fun fact about these slight edges is that they do not take HUGE efforts. They take simple, purposeful actions executed every single day. A small improvement made day-after-day compounds into huge differences over a season and a career. Hence, our motto, “Get 1% better today.”
Coach Garman truly believes that goalies can reach their highest potential if they have the right tools and resources and are willing to commit to the effort of getting 1% better every day. After playing at some of the highest levels in the world, goalie coach Mike Garman now coaches and mentors goalies all over the world. The GoaliebyGarman Academy is a private, password-protected community where goalies learn everything they need to become their best.
