Hello, my name is Antonio Tarantino, I am 18 years old currently playing Goaltender for the San Jose Jr. Sharks 18 AAA in the Tier 1 Elite Hockey League and our state CAHA league.
I am looking to continuing my academic and athletic progression by playing at the junior hockey level in the hopes of playing college level hockey at the highest level I can achieve in the future.
What makes me a desirable prospect for your team is my motivation to continually evaluate my game on the ice, my academics off the ice and my leadership skills in the locker room. I have enjoyed volunteering my time with the Jr Sharks Club at various community events held at the rink. I especially enjoyed the "Give Goalie a Try" event started by our club's on ice goalie coach.
I have always been a coachable player throughout my playing career, always receptive to adjustments to improve my game and the team.
I consider my on ice time as a time to fine tune my game and to work at being the best player I can be at my position. I thrive on a structured environment in my academics and athletics.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me
