As a coach/consultant, I bring a wealth of talent, knowledge and experience to my training of individual goaltenders. Organizations can benefit systemically by my input and development of programs designed to improve an entire association’s goaltending.
One of my greatest strengths is that I work personally with an organization’s goalies, at all levels. My philosophy is to impart the value of success for all the athletes I train and oversee. I believe that all goalies should strive to be the best they can be by formulating and attaining a balance between the technical, physical and mental aspects of the game. A key dimension to attaining this balance is the motivation of the athlete, helping him/her to construct personal criteria of success.
