Acknowledgements | Target Practice | Goaltending Information


I would like to acknowledge the fine people who took time from their day to meet with me and discuss goaltending, their thoughts on the game and to offer their unbiased opinion. Without these people, I would not have been able to write the book or create this website.

Most importantly, I am now able to help thousands of goalies, parents and coaches through Target Practice Initiative.

I have included this list in the hope that our visitors take the time to thank these folks individually through a quick Tweet, email or by supporting their business with a purchase.
