Here are a few off-ice drills for goalies:

"Off-Ice Goaltending Techniques: Drills for Goaltenders"

Drills 7 and 8 on this page are directed at goalies specifically:

"Agility Drills"

I'm not sure how applicable drills for roller-hockey goalies are to
ice-hockey goalies.  The following page seems to suggest that there is
some connection, and contains some suggestions for drills.  It also
provides links to pages on various goaltending skills.

"Goalies Corner"
Rocky Mountain Roller Hockey League

I hope that this information is helpful.

Your answer resulted in 3 off-ice goalie drills (first link) and 2
general agility drills, which are good exercise for goalies, but not
really related to net-minding (second link).  The third link had no
drills.  You did answer my question, since I did not ask for "more
than 3" goalie drills, but the answer was not exceptional. Maybe the
search is too extensive for $5?  I thought I'd go for clarification
before giving a 3-star rating.  Thanks!

OK, let me look a bit more.

You may be right about the price.  The researcher gets $3.75 for a
$5.00 question, and if you think in terms of the mimimum wage, $3.75
does not pay for a long amount of work.

But I try not to think like that when I'm answering a question.  If I
choose to answer it, and the asker has a reasonable follow-up request,
then it's my duty to carry it out.  So, now, I'll go do that.

I've scoured dozens of pages, including these pages in the Google
Directory and Yahoo! Directory:

"Sports > Hockey > Ice Hockey > Training"
Google Directory

"Home > Recreation > Sports > Hockey > Ice Hockey > Coaching"
Yahoo! Directory

I found nothing relevant on those pages or on interesting links from
those pages.  I also tried several variations on my searches on
Google, and finally came up with this page:

"Off-Ice Training"
Boni Goalie Trainers

The problem seems to be in finding this information for free.  Ice
hockey instruction is a big business, and indeed, in the directories,
for-profit instruction (i.e., schools, videos, books, equipment, etc.)
outnumbers free instruction by a significant amount.

Also, it's much easier to find on-ice drills than off-ice drills
(which is probably why you asked this question in the first place).

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful; I did try hard to find more of what
you wanted.
