Matt Parker


A graduate of Brantford Minor Hockey and former rep team goaltender, Matt has mastered the art of training goalies. His ability to evaluate a goalies strength and weaknesses and develop training methods to make them the best goalie possible are outstanding. The goalies he trains respond very well to his guidance and his constant chatter on the ice pushes them to give it their best effort and skate off the ice with a mask full of sweat and a smile filled with confidence.
