About FinnGoalie

Goalie Coach in Bedford, Nova Scotia

Here is a bit about myself and playing / coaching creditials. My name is Jack Hartigan and I have been playing goaltender for the past 17 years and started coaching 7 years ago. I grew up in Bedford a suburb located near Halifax Nova Scotia. I got into coaching while I was playing minor pro Hockey in Europe with a local minor hockey program and have enjoyed it ever since. I attended Savonia University Finland where I studied International Business. I am very passionate about goaltending and my goal is to bring the best training methods in goaltending possible to goaltenders in Nova Scotia.
