Coach Jim Stanaway, 38, has been running and working with hockey schools for 15 years. Stanaway has obtained a USA Hockey Level 4 coaching certification, and for (3) seasons manned the bench for the 2013-2014 Busch Cup Champion, Marquette Royales Junior A Hockey Team. Dozens of players under Coach Stanaways direction have reached their goals of playing at the NCAA level.
A native of Marquette Michigan, Jim, has worked with kids of all ages and skill levels. While Jim was attending Finlandia University (NCAA Division III), he served as a volunteer coach assisting the local youth hockey association’s goaltenders. At the conclusion of Stanaway’s college career, he went on to run the bench for the Green Bay Junior Gamblers Midget AAA team, and was a member of the first coaching staff for the Ashwaubenon Jaguars Varsity Hockey Team (Ashwaubenon, WI).
Wisconsin is where Stanaway started Goalies Inc. He realized the need Wisconsin had for professional and affordable goaltending instruction. Goalies, Inc. held their first camp in June of 2008 in Oshkosh, WI. We are now entering in our 16th season as a premier choice for goaltending instruction in the United States, and Jim has had the privilege of holding events all across the US including Anchorage, AK, San Diego, CA, Tampa, FL and Westfield, MA. Coach Stanaway even held a special camp in Belfast, Northern Ireland, while working with goaltenders from the level of mites to pro in the country.
In the Summer of 2017 (-Present) , Coach Stanaway joined Mitch Korn (Stanley Cup Champion 18′ / New York Islanders, NHL) to hone in and enhance the Goalies, Inc training programs. Coach Korn mentored Coach Stanaway, and influenced his approach to coaching goaltenders greatly to help shape the exciting camps Goalies, Inc offers today! Coach Stanaway also joined forces with other great coaches such as Ryan Honick (GDI, USA) to develop his current systematic approach to coaching.
Stanaway graduated from Northern Michigan University in the spring of 2017 and holds a Bachalors of Arts in Biology with a Neuroscience Concentration.
Goalies, Inc. would not be where it is today without the guidance of the amazing mentors that have helped guide Coach Stanaway’s coaching career. In 2024, we want to help make as big of an impact on other coaches across the US as have helped us along our way. Please contact us today to apply to be a mentor coach at any of our (30) events nationally. We would love to share our knowledge, experience and guidance is anyway possible with you!
“I have had so many amazing mentors in my personal journey as a coach, I don’t know where I would be if I had not been able to learn from so many great coaches. It is exciting for me to have the opportunity to share my experiences with another generation of coaches. I couldn’t think of a better way to pay homage to my amazing mentors than by passing that knowledge on”

We are honored to have played a positive roll in the development of each of these organization’s goalies, staff, and coaches! Please review what some of our partners have said about their experience with Goalies, Inc….
“I am writing to express my appreciation to your group for what they have accomplished to date in our youth hockey program. We have had various attempts in the past of utilizing association coaches and outside coaches. After several years of less than satisfactory results it was time for a big change and that is exactly what Goalies Inc has provided.
As a coach and a board member I appreciate you allowing me to be on the ice and absorb the techniques and skill development you bring to our weekly goalie sessions. It has certainly has been and eye-opening experience and a big breath of fresh air to our goalie skill development. You provide clear concise instruction, a progressive training structure, and great ice utilization. Far too often goalies are treated as a “shooter tooter” in practices and do not learn the specific skill sets. By having coaches experienced in playing the position you bring fun and challenge to kids and they are engaged in the practices. We have already been witnessing positive results in an increase of goalie numbers, feedback from the parents, and more W’s on the score sheet! I’m looking forward to experiencing more instruction for myself and our players throughout the remainder of the season. Keep up the great work!” – Eric
Each Goalies, Inc. camp is broken into (4) ice sessions, each focusing on a logical system of skills, taught in progression, so that our goalies are able to make efficient decisions during all game situations. By breaking down the position into our easily adaptable development progression, our students show a marked improvement over the course of our short weekend series.. More info.
Balanced and controlled movements are vital to a goaltender's growth as an athlete. His or her ability to move within the crease, master the set-up, and make efficient decisions, will directly relate to how effective he or she will be at stopping the puck. Our power skating program focuses on movements, decision making, and edge control, all without pucks... More info.
We offer Private Lessons and Group Lessons so that the players are able to work one on one with the instructors. This allows us to focus more directly on individual players strengths and weaknesses. Our Private Lessons can be a great way to see the players true potential. For our student's convenience, Coach Stanaway is available to travel for any private training.More info.
