How did your participation in GUARDIAN training and National Championship

impact you as a Goaltender?

The training improved my game so much. I started training under Guardian in 5th grade which is when I started playing, so I have learned a lot from it. The training helped me get to how I play today.

Metro: I can count on them to help.
