“Using my former hockey experiences, it is rewarding to be a part of a young athlete's hockey experience in order to assist them in improving the skills they come to me with. Dryland is an aspect of hockey that is often overlooked yet provides a wide range of skills that can carry over to improving a players on ice skills. It is vital that athletes learn proper shooting form and technique at a young age.  Using a variety of off-ice training methods, quickness and agility is emphasized.”

“Hockey has been my ticket to travel around the country and compete at the highest levels. I have learned many lessons on and off the ice over my 16 years of goaltending experience. As a 6’5” Goalie, I have combined off-ice training and on-ice training together to improve my speed and be the most dominant player on the ice. Goalies bring a different perspective to the table that is even more vital than physical training; and that is the mental aspect of the game. The player who trains the hardest physically and mentally will always be the most prepared in any situation and will find success.”
