Under the guidance of Coach Ray Finnegan, the Naval Academy manufactured a number of standout goalkeepers. His knowledge and teaching ability produced All-American goalies in 1992, 1999, 2000, and 2004. This video will introduce the two cornerstones of goalie play: athleticism and discipline. Finnegan's attention to discipline includes physical and mental preparation. Through this discipline comes aggressive, low-risk goalie play. In addition, Finnegan covers vital techniques such as the readiness position, position in goal relative to the ball, how to hold the pipe, mechanics of a save, defending the bounce shot, defending the feed, and much more. Throughout this video, he highlights teaching points that are critical to athletic play in the goal.
