A page from floorball goalies for floorball goalies
Proud to be a Goalie!
To be a floorball goalie is our passion. There is no better feeling than stopping a shot everyone considered going in. As a goalie, you are the last defender on the field. A striker can make mistakes. But a goalie cannot as there are no lost opportunities on a side of the field, only balls we failed to stop. That’s why our skills are so critical to be always ready for the save. As we are both passionate floorball goalies, we are always searching for ways to improve our game, be it a new training method or a tiny bit of sports psychology. But as we all know, many coaches have no clue on how to train a goalie, so all we can do is to train ourselves or tell our coaches what we want to improve in our game. With this page we want to provide our knowledge about and want to answer these questions:
- What are the basic positions of a floorball goalie?
- Which moves are available and when should a floorball goalie use them?
- How should a floorball goalie's positions and moves be applied in different situations
- Which exercise are good to improve certain goalie skills?

Who are we
David & Lars
DavidI am a '94 born Swiss guy and started playing floorball at the age of seven, but only on the streets. Later on when I was 15, I started playing for a small field club and found at the age of 17 my way between the posts at a large field club, where I played in under 18's, under 21's and the 2nd team (3rd division) and 1st team (NLB). After a year I changed to my current club SV Waldenburg Eagles, where we managed to get promoted to Division 1.
By the beginning of 2020, I started Goalie Coaching at Red Ants Rychenberg Winterthur, a womens team in Switzerlands highest Division, the NLA. With this website, Lars and I want to help every floorball goalie by providing our knowledge and help floorball to grow.
In the 2017 edition of BLindsave Goalie Camp I met Lars for the first time and we became good friends. After participating also in the 2018 and 2019 (summer & winter) edition I am looking forward to 2021 summer camp and hope to see as many of you there as possible.
