The Vaughn VE8 youth blocker is a great kicking off point for those young players looking into becoming goalies. With a focus on light weight and comfort that does not get in the goalies way, the VE8 youth goalie blocker is a great tool to help learn the great position of goaltending.
Proper stick positioning is a pillar goaltender. It functions as a steering wheel when moving around the crease, and if a goalie is unable to move their stick freely many other parts of their game are going to suffer. For this reason Vaughn included a contoured cuff that is designed to help with wrist mobility and stay out of the goalies way during play.
Vaughn also tapered the blocker board and positioned the palm of the glove in such a way that the blocker helps the goalie to pick up their stick if they drop it. This can be one of the most difficult things to do as a young goalie, and it's not even during play!
The VE8 youth goalie blocker also has full finger and sidewall protection for premier protection of the goaltender rs hand.
Designed for young goalies that want to get started into the zaniest position on ice, the VE8 youth goalie blocker fits the bill perfectly.
