I’m Coach Dana, founder of AdvantEDGE Goaltending. I am a goalie coach, personal trainer, and performance enhancement specialist. Of course I am also a goalie! I’ve been playing for the past 20 seasons and have played NCAA D1 and D3. I know what it takes to get to the next level and I want to help you get there. I specialize in working with fellow female goalies and focusing training around our unique specific physical and mental needs. I am in the Metro Detroit Area but have online training programs for goalies all over the world. If you are a GALtender than please join our private facebook group and become part of a positive female goalie community that is already 600+ strong! We have goalies from all over that are beginners up to pros and everyone is happy to help each other out with anything goalie related!

Personalized Goalie Training

I started playing goalie late at the age of 13 and I quickly realized the limited resources that were available for female goalies. Even in a hockey hotbed like Metro Detroit I found myself with an actual goalie coach for only one season of my junior career. Even during my NCAA playing days, dedicated 1-on-1 goalie coaching wasn't a priority for most teams. Today there are a TON of goalie coaches out there-but you'll have a tough time finding a female goalie coach with my experience and passion for growing the game for fellow GALtenders. Today, I aim to change that by working on dedicated programming for female goalies all over the world and especially right in my backyard of Saint Clair Shores, MI and the surrounding areas.
