THE MISSION

To develop goaltenders to the highest leagues in the world in a fantastic, enjoyable learning environment.
In the never-ending quest towards perfection. Together we are stronger.

Goaltending is one of the toughest mental, physical & technical positions in any sport on earth - then someone fires a projectile at us at up to 100mph just to make it a little more difficult - that's why people think we are crazy for doing it!

Using the greatest coaching methods to get the very best from my goaltenders I aim to propel them into the highest leagues in the world - sounds like a big plan - that's because it is & it's one I'm confident of being able to deliver.

Over 20 years I've worked on what is needed for goalies to progress to the levels they aspire to & they can make with the right guidance.

IT'S ALL ABOUT MAKING SURE MY GOALIES HAVE THE BEST TRAINING AVAILABLE SO THEY CAN FOLLOW THEIR DREAMS!

IT'S TIME TO AIM FOR 100!
