Personal Statement

I’ve heard coaches and teachers say to student-athletes that they are only going to go so far because they don’t have the talent to make it to the highest level. Deep down, I never wanted to accept that. Fortunately for me, my parents have been a great support system and have always encouraged me to chase my dreams.

I started learning how to play hockey at the age of nine. Ever since I can remember, I have always wanted to play goalie. I was attracted to the position because of the excitement of stopping the puck and being able to play and influence the entire game. Through hockey, I’ve learned that I love to be part of a team that supports each other. I also learned how to be a good teammate and how to effectively manage the stress and pressure that comes with the postion.

I understand the importance of getting a great education, doing your best, and maintaining a high grade point average. As a freshman in high school, I made honor roll my first marking period. One of my educational goals is to make the National Honor Society. Beyond high school, I plan to obtain a college degree possibly in Graphic Arts.

Like all student-athletes, I have faced some obstacles. One that stands out occurred during my second year of U14. I was the only goalie on the team and there were times when I didn’t play as well as I strived for and I faced some confidence issues. However, going through that experience pushed me to come up with some ways to overcome these issues. I have developed a mental and physical preparation routine that I utilize prior to and during every game. I arrive to the rink early to start my preparation and I utiilize focus technques and positive thinking through the end of the game to maintain my concentration which has allowed me to become a much better goaltender. All that I have described above has improved me to become a confident goaltender and that confidence is conveyed to the entire team.
