"As the owner and head instructor of Accel Goaltending it is my mission to change the way we develop our young goaltenders. I have attended many camps over the span of an 18 year goaltending career and I know that 99% of them are run virtually the same way. My goal is to be the other 1%. Each camp we run will be innovative, informative, progressive and demanding on each and every goaltender. I truly believe that having someone that is so closely removed from the game, such as myself, bodes extremely well in the relationships I have with the goalies I work with. I have seen absolutely nothing but growth and positivity since setting out to become one of the elite goaltender development coaches in Western Canada.
I encourage you as a parent, to reach out and ask questions about our program. I am positive that you will be glad you did. This is so much more than your typical goalie school. This is a mentorship program that will last the span of your young goaltenders career. "
