"Having my sons at Shattuck and at The Goalie Club for the past years gives me peace of mind that their development is taken care of with the structure of the goalie program, and at the same time, being themselves in the way that they believe the position should be played. It's been a great experience for my boys."

Martin Brodeur, NJ Devils & Future Hall of Famer

"Hi Coach,

Thanks again for bringing such a great clinic to Missoula, and to provide some feedback. I was asking in the locker room what the kids thought, and the comments ranged from “amazing” to “the best goalie clinic I’ve ever been to”, and from my perspective, I learned some valuable fundamentals that I’ll definitely incorporate into our goalie development at practices (sealing the short side, stick positioning in the reverse VH, chest positioning to name a few).

Also, Coach John came up to me afterwards and said that he was watching you teach the exit strategy after stopping the puck behind the net, and he commented how he’d never seen that in all his years and how much sense it made, and I completely agree."
