"I wanted to send a note also to say Thank You. It was great to see my son working hard and your staff was excellent for every level of goalie out there. They were very fleet at foot to push the goalie to their own ability and not someone else’s. All the coaches took the time to correct goalies for proper technique and didn’t let things slide for sake of time management. You have surrounded yourself with a great staff. Also a huge shout out for providing a quality camp at an affordable price! Kudos to you!" - Serena, Wisconsin.
...As I have said many times, you made a significant difference in my daughters development. Without the hours she spent on and off the ice with you she would not be near the level that she is today! I can sum your dedication up in one episode from this winter- How many coaches would spend 2 hours on an outside pond with one player when it is -10 degrees? your the only one that I am aware of... Thank you for your dedication to the goalies that have been fortunate enough to work with you and Goalies Inc!" - Rod - Michigan
"... .Coach Jim worked with me extensively on using my core to my advantage. Working with me to improve my lateral movements and foot speed. Coach also helped me tighten up on fundamentals. As the game got faster I relied on these fundamentals to keep up with the pace of the games" - Walker Enstad - Finlandia University
"...My season went great, we went 18-8, everyone was surprised with how much I improved. Sadly we got knocked out of the playoffs in the second round, but it was a much better season, Our team hasn't won more the 10-13 games in one season in more than 20 years. After doing your camps, I felt more confident that I would stop the puck, I felt much quicker this year, I was able to handle the pressure of being the only varsity goalie, and I can surely thank you for most of that..." - Austin - Wisconsin
"...Our son LOVES coach Jim and the rest of the Goalies Inc. staff. They have become more like an extended family. That is how all of the families feel that have been with Jim over the years. Camp is more like a family reunion" - Jody - Wisconsin
"...Coach Jim has worked tirelessly to keep the cost of his camps affordable so all goalies can attend. Since I've met Mr. Stanaway I've felt compelled to help in some way to allow a child who may have possibly not been able to attend his camps due to financial restraints." - Yvonne - Michigan
"I just wanted to pass on this highlight for Goalies Inc. My son decided to get into goaltending as a 15 year old after not playing any hockey since he was 5 years old. We looked at a bunch of camps and decided on Goalies Inc mostly because of the very early dates of your Oshkosh camp. He had been tending in some adult roller hockey sessions, but literally came to Oshkosh with only about an hour on his goalie ice skates. That session he was paired with three young girls because of his lack of skating skills. He is almost 6-2 so it made for a funny picture, but he got great basic instruction. He returned for a second Goalies Inc session in Delafield. This time he had progressed enough to be paired with the varsity goalies in the group.
My son just went through tryouts for the Varsity team at his Madison, WI High School. They had three goalies trying out, including the returning starter. After three days of intensive tryouts he was asked to join the team as the #2 goalie (they kept all three goalies). From no experience to Varsity in 9 months.
I think the patient and consistent instruction my son received from you and your team were instrumental in jump starting his career between the pipes. Thank you again!" - Lewis Madison, WI
"....thanks so much for your work with my son! Of all the coaches he has had, you are the only one who really was able to make a connection with him. I was very impressed how you were able to push him to test his limits and show him how hard work would enable him to reach his goals.He respected you and was ready to work for you until he was gasping for air and couldn't stand up. I think you saw in him some things that I also saw. I believe he has tremendous potential both physically and mentally. You helped him realize that in himself. You are an excellent coach and thank you again!" - Dean - Appleton, WI
