Goaler U is the top destination for young and elite hockey goaltenders who want to train in order to reach their greatest individual potential.
Stefan Nichols played 5 years of Junior A hockey and continued his passion for the position into coaching. He has been a professional goaltending consultant for the past 12 years developing goalies of all ages. In his tenure, Stefan has had the opportunity to train numerous professionals, NCAA and Jr “A” goaltenders. In 2009/2010, 10 of the 30 Central Junior A hockey league goalies attended sessions with Stefan Nichols at one point or another in their training career. Stefan’s eye for detail, implementation of the Hybrid style and ability to diagnose inaccuracy among goalies has secured him a position as the Ottawa Junior A Senators goalie coach. In only two years with the team one goalie was invited to tryout with the Ottawa 67’s and the other goalie committed to Lake Superior Division I, NCAA. At the minor level, Stefan has acted as the Ottawa Sting goalie mentor for the past 3 years. In his 3 years as mentor, Sting goalies have always made the jump to the Bantam AAA 67’s organization. Stefan has a track record of bringing goalies to the next level of their play. His knowledge and applications of the technical and tactical elements of goaltending provide his students a solid foundation to develop skills that will be useful throughout their careers. Stefan makes a point of building professional relationships with each student at Goaler U. Stefan identifies the goalies needs and tailors his sessions towards challenging the students to reach their highest potential. Stefan is also a fluently bilingual teacher with the Ottawa Carleton District School Board which provides him the communication and teaching skills to educate the different individuals in all of his sessions.

Welcome to our new Facebook page - young goalies' first destination for professional tips and advice to fast-track your goaltending development!
Carey Price is playing great positional hockey right now. Not quite as aggressive as Quick but playing higher than Henrik Lundqvist
July 21st is our Elite goalie school with some of the brightest young AAA goalies Ottawa has to offer. Freddy Brathwaite, team Canada under 20 head goalie coach, will be with us for most of the week :) Can't wait to bring his experience to our team!!!
Dwayne Roloson was quoted saying "vision training, above all else, took me from an up and down pro to a consistent starter in the NHL." What are you doing to train your vision?
Just back from the Hockey Canada Program of Excellence where I was among a group of instructors training and evaluating the top U17,U18 and U20 goalies in the Nation. Canada's nets are in good hands, without a doubt able to bring Gold this Christmas!
