About inGoal Magazine
I’ve been a goaltender since 1972 when I began as a six year old inspired by then-rookie Ken Dryden. Little did I know, goaltending would play a big role in my life and now so many years later I am still playing. I won’t list all my accomplishments and successes on ice because frankly there aren’t too many! But I love the game and I think I have the ability to convey my enthusiasm and knowledge of goaltending and more importantly to bring lots of others together to help build a community of people who love our great position.
I am a teacher of high school computer science and physics who has moved into an administrative role at Shawnigan Lake School., where I am responsible with a great team of people for fundraising and special events. I have an M.Sc. in Exercise Science from the University of Toronto and spent a few years working towards a Ph.D. before moving into teaching. In grad school I had the good fortune to spend a year at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. I have also been a rowing coach for over ten years. So, where possible, I will try to share some insights from the world of sport science and their relation to goaltending.
There are many great goaltending resources out there and I don’t intend to push into already well-covered territory. I’ll keep visiting these sites and I hope that you will too.
What I will do is try to fill in the blanks and bring together goaltending related things that are not as well covered today. I’m sure it will evolve as the site grows but now I plan for the site to have great interviews, sport science and training, equipment reviews, technique tips, photos, video and more. I’d like to bring in some store owners to talk about what’s hot and trends they are seeing in the market, equipment manufacturers to chat about their latest developments, goalie coaches and goalie school owners to share their craft.
