Meet Coach Dana

About Me

Nice to meet you! I am Coach Dana and I appreciate your willingness to check out FireHockeyFit for your goaltending needs. I have been a goalie and a goalie coach for the better part of 20 years.

I had a very short youth career as I did not start until I was 13, but by 17 I was recruited to play NCAA D1 hockey at Robert Morris University. I ended up transferring back closer to home to be a piece of the inaugural years of Adrian College’s Women’s NCAA D3 team and was the starting goalie there my Junior and Senior seasons. The fact that I had a collegiate career is proof that hard work and dedication can beat out all the expensive training and political advantages as long as you are truly passionate and committed to your goals.

I never had a private goalie coach growing up-during my Junior year of travel hockey I was fortunate to have a coach that played goalie for OSU and helped us every practice. Adrian College didn’t even provide goalie coaching and I went to two camps per summer as a youth goalie. I played and still do play year round and I continue to love the game just as much as I did as a kid first strapping on the pads in the streets and inline rinks all over my hometown. I am self-taught and have had to be resourceful in my training by studying NHL goalies and making up my own drills as I grew up before Youtube or social media was a big resource. I bring this drive and creativity to my coaching and I am committed to helping goalies reach their goals with affordable and adaptable resources.

The Mission

To provide knowledgeable goalie coaching for on and off the ice that is affordable and accessible. Goaltending is expensive enough and not every kid or parent can afford to pile on $$$ to get specialized training. Your game and your potential should not be limited by funds and I am here to give you the opportunity to improve your skills and ignite your game.

What is FireHockeyFit?

FHF is my passion project. Bringing on and off-ice training to goalies as well as mental training and resources my goal is to help any athlete that is willing to do the work to realize their potential. Specializing in workouts that don’t require a ton of expensive equipment or a gym and offering affordable on ice options-I am bringing the heat to the goalie coaching world.
