Fuel Goalie

Only a goalie can appreciate what a goalie goes through”. Jacques Plante

Fuel is proud to offer position specific content for goaltenders. A true sport inside a sport, the need for goaltenders to be in the right mindset is paramount to their ability to stop the puck. Fuel goalies follow our three step system which consists of daily video primers, weekly assignments, and monthly podcasts. Daily primers consist of audio from some of the top personal growth and performance coaches in the world layered over video of goaltenders keeping the puck out of the net. Weekly assignments are designed by  Steve Brown and presented by Fuel goaltending consultant Brian Daccord. Brian is currently an NHL goaltending scout and a former NHL goaltending coach with over 20 years of experience in training elite goaltenders. Monthly podcasts are conversations featuring Steve Brown and Brian Daccord and target the needs of aspirating goaltenders. These workshops are approximately 30 minutes in length and are available online.

Week 6 (10.13.19)

Distractions can get the best of us but we have a way not to let this happen. In today’s assignment Steve Brown shows goalies how to use cues to trigger your mindset and let those distractions be a thing of the past. Have a great week and Thing FAST, Play Fast, #BeFAST.  

An athlete can use cues to help themselves shift from recognizing their WIN to

purposeful action. Cues serve as a signal or suggestion for how an athlete would like to be and for what he or she may want to do.

Be Cues: Help inform an athlete of how they want to feel in a given moment:

  • Relaxed
  • Calm
  • Present

Do Cues: Helps an athlete recognize what they should be doing.

  • Eyes
  • Chest up
  • Push

For this exercise, think of a situation during a game that you would like to be more

focused. Once you identify a cue it is crucial to begin using it in practice.
