“I have gotten to know Chris “Coach” Carter on both a professional level and a personal level over the past few years. We have spent time coaching together at my Korn Camps in the United States and we have spent time together as friends in Washington. Chris is a quality person. He is very knowledgeable and passionate when it comes to coaching goaltenders. He strives to do his best and works hard at everything he does in life. He is very genuine. I highly recommend Chris and would trust him to coach my children.”

– Mitch Korn, Goaltending Coach, Washington Capitals (NHL)


“I was able to help coach at Great Saves Goaltending alongside Chris when I was a player for the St. John’s Ice Caps. He is on point with his techniques and theories, but also is great at working with students of all ages and levels. He makes learning and playing fun, and that’s what being a goalie is all about.’

– Mark Dekanich, former goaltender for St. John’s Ice Caps of the AHL, current goalie for South Carolina Stingrays of the ECHL


“As the father of a goalie, I have spent countless hours at the rink. There is no shortage of ice time for a goalie in a small hockey association. However, there is a difference in the QUALITY of training a goalie receives. Great Saves is a five-star camp for teaching goalies unique skills that they would not get in any other environment. Coach to goalie ratio is perfect and my son enjoys the positive atmosphere that Chris brings to the camp. Bad habits are corrected, detail is addressed correctly and kids have a lot of fun. I would strongly recommend this camp to every goalie from beginner to expert.”

– Jason Russell, father of GSG student Preston Russell


“Our son, Riley, has been a student of GSG for the last 4 years, completing both the summer and winter programs. The leadership, skill set, knowledge, respect and patience that Chris and his staff show each and every week is above and beyond. Our son has improved with this culture that Chris had adopted for his program both on and off the ice. Having GSG involved with “Coaching the Coach” from an even higher level (the NHL) shows us that they are getting elite coaching training that is brought back to our province for the kids to utilize on the ice. We highly recommend this program to anyone who is wanting their child in a structured yet fun learning environment.”

– Mike and Cheryl Duggan, parents of GSG student Riley Duggan
