The Puck Stops Here: Master Coach Marco Marciano

It’s The Little Details

Coach Marco Marciano has spent over 15 years coaching goaltenders. Currently he coaches with the Hamilton Bulldogs an affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens. He’s also been the Canadian national women’s team goaltending and video coach, winning a Gold medal in the 2010 Olympic games.

To him, as with many coaches, it’s the little details that matter. The finer points of the game that often cannot be seen with the naked eye. In early September of 2014, two of his elite goalies Marc-Andé Fleury and Jonathan Bernier, joined Marco for some pre season training.

Using his invention the Blocker Sleeve, a reactive training tool that helps goalies improve fundamental skills, he worked on some of the finer parts of their game before hitting the ice.

On the ice, he uses an iPad Mini that provides up to 60 FPS video recording in Coach’s Eye. Along with a protective case and tripod, Marco slides the iPad around the ice to video specific skills he’s working on with the athletes.

Early indications show that Marco’s offseason training techniques have given the goaltenders an advantage. Marc-André Fleury recently recorded a career high eight shutouts and the Penguins are an early favorite to make a playoff run.

Coming soon Coach’s Eye will have over 50 exclusive training videos of Marco Marciano, Marc-André Fleury and Jonathan Bernier for purchase. Sign up below to get notified when the videos are available.
