University of Wisconsin – River Falls | NCAA Division III
“I first started playing goalie when I turned 10, as a new member to the goalie position I just wanted to get things going for myself. My Dad somehow stumbled upon signing me up for MGS and I am so glad he did. The camp really helped me with my fundamentals especially because I started playing goalie at an older age than most. While I was establishing myself into the camp; I was fortunate enough to win the Sammy/Carl Award as the camps hardest worker my second year, and although, I never won the competition that was held at the end of the week camp, but I think a contributing factor to that was because I had such a big mouth with the shooters. With that being said year in and year out I always left the camp at the end of the week a better goalie. Now, 10 years later I am still a student of the camp, and a part time instructor.
Midwest Goalie School is not only a camp where you go to learn how to play goalie, but it is also a place where you create networks and relationships, networks and relationships that can last you a lifetime. Growing up through the camp I met so many different people. I am a big believer in “everything happens for a reason”, and I believe that every one that I met through the camp has helped me develop into the goalie, and person I am today. While playing youth hockey I went through some pretty tough times dealing with being cut from teams, but the relationships that I developed through Midwest Goalie really helped me persevere through it. I am now playing college hockey at the University of Wisconsin- River Falls NCAA DIII, and there’s no way I could have made it here without Midwest Goalie School.”
