About True North

True North Goaltending is dedicated to providing quality development for goalies of all ages. Whether you have a little goalie trying out the position for the first time, or you are a beer league goalie who has played for 20 years, we can help improve your game.

We are focused on the quality of the coaching we provide, and not about the quantity. During each session, we will take the time to work with our goalies and provide personalized feedback during the drills so any tweaks can be implemented in real time. Every session is also videoed, with the video uploaded to a private account through the video app we use.

We have tailored all of our services to try and provide our goalies with the best development possible so each athlete can realize their top potential. To take a look at all of what the True North advantage offers, check out our services.

We also run a goalie content website called The DIY Goalie.

Real Client Testimonials

Our son loves his sessions with True North. The focus on fundamentals and developing good technique has helped our son grow as a goalie. With targeted drills, True North is able to help each goalie continue to work on their strengths, but also target areas that need to be developed further.

– Julie D.

True North is definitely focused on the quality of the save over quantity of the shots. They challenge the goalies to make the saves the proper way every time.

Nathan Park picture

Nathan Park

Head Instructor and Founder

Nathan has just under 20 years of playing experience as a goaltender, including 4 years of Junior A with the Spruce Grove Saints, Selkirk Steelers, Fort Frances Lakers, and Portage Terriers. During his junior career, Nathan won an SIJHL and an MJHL championship, including SIJHL playoff MVP. He also won goaltender of the year honours in the SIJHL and MJHL.

Nathan finished his career with 2 years played at NAIT, where he had an opportunity to play against the Oilers rookies, making 30 saves in half of a game en route to a 2-0 win. This also led to the opportunity to be the Oilers emergency backup goalie over 12 games, although he never got to leave the stands and suit up.

Since playing, Nathan has been coaching since 2017 with a focus on breaking down the position and helping goalies understand the why of goaltending. Nathan has coached goalies of all ages, from U9 beginners to Junior to adults.

Jordan Wagg

Head Instructor

Jordan has been a goalie for nearly 30 years, competitively for 10 of
those. He began coaching goalies when his kids started playing, and
has learned under some of the best goalie coaches out there, including
Kurtis Mucha, Tommy Nixon, and of course, Nathan Park. Jordan is currently the Director of Goaltending for the Sherwood Park Minor Hockey Association.

He has a great passion for working with goalies both experienced and
new to the position, as well as for building the community of goalies
as a whole. The most rewarding part of coaching for him is the
relationships he builds with the goalies and their families, as each
of them grows to be their best selves, both on and off the ice.
