Program Director, Development Consultant & Co-Owner

Maurice (Moe) Tanel

When I began my journey towards starting a goalie school, I wanted to take advantage of my two great passions of athletics and teaching.

My experiences in life, policing and instructing have taught me the potential value of sports and their positive impact on the growth of youth into mature adults.

As a father of 3 grown children who participated in elite level sports, as a Police Officer of 27 years with the Toronto Police Service and as a Goalie Instructor since 1996, these experiences have had a profound impact on my vision for the TEAM Shutout growth philosophy.

I had a vision that developing goaltenders was more than setting up camps that facilitated drills. I had a vision to use the vehicle of goaltending to develop the athletic skills and the character qualities of our students.

From this wealth of experience and a continued thirst to learn, I have forged development partnerships with experts in various youth development fields, which has guided me in creating the Crease Control Training System.

Like anything in life, nothing is complete. I have a continued desire to learn and discover. Always looking for improvements or another added approach that will make the development experience of our students a better one.

As the director, I promote my vision through my program and my staff. A vision that will facilitate a safe and progressive training program to ensure the sustainable growth of our student’s towards mastering the discipline of in-game ‘ARC3 Performance’ execution.

Our mission is to be industry leaders in the progressive training of youth goalies that ensures sustainable development. I am always inspired by the testimonials we receive that provides me with the affirmation that our program is pointed in the right direction.
