Maurice (Moe) Tanel
Founding Owner & Program Director
Hi, I’m Coach Moe. And I have always believed that a well guided athletic program can be an important element for anyone to cultivate confidence and personally grow.
As a father of 3 grown children who participated in elite level sports, as a grandfather of 6 wonderful grandchildren, as a retired 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 the development philosophy that I wanted to apply to all our ‘on-the-ice training programs when I founded TEAM Shutout Goalie School.
When I started the goalie school in 2006, I had a vision that developing goaltenders was more than setting up camps that facilitated drills. I wanted to use the vehicle of the goaltending position to inspire our students to practice and prepare in a ‘positive learning environment’ that would encourage them to appreciate the small wins as they learn and gradually develop.
This unrelenting belief motivated me and my development partners to create an ‘online training program’ with the goalie specific ‘off-the-ice’ practice resources that would allow goalies to get more out of their training schedule. These innovative ‘at home’ practice resources will provide them the flexibility to schedule additional practice time and cultivate their confidence by knowing they have maximized their practice time in order to get better.
The Goalie Toolbox ‘online training program’, is a yearly membership full of Workshops, Drills and Coaching Advise that will guide goalies of all ages and levels to ‘practice differently’ and is designed to ‘inspire’ them to gradually learn and practice all the critically important movement patterns required to efficiently generate the explosive power for transitional executions and save selections.
I hope that you find the ‘values’ of our program will help you, or a goalie that you know, to get a little better, and that this constructive approach to training will ‘inspire’ you to join us!
