AdvantEDGE Goaltending was established officially in April of 2019 but has been a labor of love over 15 years in the making. Our goal is to provide goalie coaching both on and off the ice to local goalies with a focus on working with girl’s and women's players that may not otherwise have access to specialty coaching. We accomplish this by charging below the industry standard because we are not a company that is depending on profits to provide for our own lives. I am a career firefighter and the coaches that help us are amazing people that do this out of the love of the game not for profit. With this model we are able to get to the kids that may otherwise be looked over and be flexible with our older clients to adjust to their needs. We are also the home of the 'One Day Female Hockey Clinic'. This is a very unique format featuring coaching from high level female players/coaches, personal training advice specifically focused on teaching good Prehab and Rehab habits, and an integrative environment where younger players and women's hockey players share the ice in skill specific small groups. This format builds a sense of community and pride by providing younger players the opportunity to see that they can stay in the sport they love for as long as they want and that 'it's never too late to start'. The older players, in return, get to be reminded of their own love of the game whether they have been playing for 1 season or 30 seasons.
We are primarily located in Macomb and Oakland county at the local rinks. I am willing to travel on a limited basis to meet your needs and have worked clinics and private sessions out of Kensington Valley Ice House. If you find ice or have team skates-contact us and we will do our best to work with you. For team practices we are very limited in terms of location and availability in season (home base is St Clair Shores and I work 24 hour shifts at the Fire Department and have a family of my own :) ), but depending on your location and your ice schedule we will do our best to accommodate you and find a happy working relationship. Contact us today for your goalie coaching and personal training needs for your hockey team.
Goaltending is the most unique position in all of sports. At any given moment you are the hero or the scapegoat and the unique mix of flexibility, stamina, mental strength, and physical strength is unmatched. We understand this because we have lived the sport of hockey for the past 20+ years. I have been a goalie since 2001 and have coached goalies whenever I have gotten an opportunity since 2003. From playing house league boys to NCAA D1 and eventually carving out a collegiate career playing NCAA D3 at Adrian College I know what it takes to be successful in the crease. Bringing a unique background of a lifetime of commitment to fitness and education as well as being a licensed NASM Personal Trainer and Performance Enhancement Specialist you will have a hard time finding other goalie coaching options with both the on ice and off ice experience that can give you the AdvantEDGE in your game.
