Watch as Coach J.B. Clarke explains that he is a fan of the goalies' 3-point arc as he always wants them to be one step away from the pipe. He explains and demonstrates in detail the benefits of the 3-point arc. The goalie does not direct the defense and Coach believes it is better for the defenders to communicate and they direct the defense. He will discuss positioning and when moving from pipe to pipe the goalies should not try to get all the way to the other side. They should step backwards, throwing their stick to the outside corner then out to the pipe which keeps them in a good defensive position.
