Personal Statement

When I stop to think about what it is to be a hockey goalie there are a few features that standout to me as goals to help me grow into the goalie that I am working to mold myself into throughout my high school years. 

My friends and family would describe me as calm, confident, even tempered, quiet and friendly. These are qualities that have helped me personally, but also as a goalie, by making me a good teammate, someone who encourages players to play their best while defending, and someone who is able to stay focused, confident and mentally tough while in the net.  

Physically, I have always been active with involvement in a number of sports including rock climbing, track, soccer goalie, lacrosse, swimming and diving, mountain biking and golf.  This background has helped me with my development as a goalie by making me a quick and versatile athlete in the net. I continue to work on developing these skills and am excited about how my high school and college career will help me advance. 

I put goalie pads on for the first time when I was 8 (my team needed a goalie and my coach found out I played goalie in soccer) and throughout my youth hockey career up to this point, I have dedicated myself to advancing my play and have worked up from house, to tier 3 , then tier 2 and now this year I’m playing AAA with the Northern Cyclones and attending the Northern Cyclones Academy. With my teams over the years we have won state championships, and won or placed in a number of tournaments in both New England and Canada. 

As a student, I work hard to maintain my grades, and stay focused to maintain an above average GPA and my status as an honor roll student. I plan to pursue a college education but have yet to decide on a major. At this point, I think a career based in science will be most likely. 

Overall, I hope I have given you the information you need to consider how I may fit into your organization and I would be happy to talk to you further if you’re interested in learning more about me.
