“Ted Monnich has been an amazing coach for Max from the first day we met him almost 3 years ago at a GDI Regional Development Camp. From that first meeting Ted connected with my then 10-year-old goalie Max, in a way that made Max feel comfortable and confident about himself and his abilities as a goaltender. One of the things that really stood out to me right away as a parent was Coach Ted’s ability to relate to the athlete at any age. He spoke with Max at a level that he could understand and relate to. Ted was able to help Max focus better, trust in his skills and play with confidence. Ted not only helped Max focus better on the ice but also helped Max develop his short- and long-term goals. He really engaged Max in taking ownership of his game and it has made a huge difference in his play on the ice and his life off the ice. Not only has Coach Ted made a difference in Max’s life, but also mine as a goalie parent. He has helped me better understand what my son goes through mentally and has given me tools to help me better support my son. Ted is always there to answer questions or talk through situations that have arisen and has a genuine interest in Max’s growth. Not easy to find in this day and age. I really feel Max is ahead of the game, especially at his age, because of his mental training and I thank Ted for that. It is a continuous process, and we feel so fortunate to be able to have the opportunity to have Coach Ted work with Max and look forward to our continued positive relationship.”
