ZACH NAGELVOORT

UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN - EDMONTON NHL DRAFT PICK

Working with UnLock and having the opportunity to be a part of the CPGS prospects camp has given me the opportunity to not just improve my game to the highest level possible but also get my name out there by skating in front of numerous NCAA and Junior A coaches and scouts. UnLock's combination of challenging off ice workouts with high intensity on ice instruction makes it a great tool for training.

MATEJ TOMEK

U OF NORTH DAKOTA - PHILADELPHIA NHL DRAFT PICK

I have been working with Coach Briere and the UnLock program for the last season. Throughout the whole season it helped me to improve my game by changing and fixing small, but very important, details. It forced me to be better and get better at every possible moment of practice. Steve is one of the best Goalie coaches that I had the pleasure to work with and if you want to become an Elite Goalie, Coach Briere is the right person to work with, and the UnLock goalie training program is the tool to use.

Goalie coaches and mentorship, mental strength, vision training systems, goalie training videos, hockey drills.

CULVER ACADEMY / ODESSA JACKALOPES / DARTMOUTH COLLEGE

Working with the UnLock Program is an essential experience for any goalie to improve their game. Over the past few years, I have worked with Steve Briere and created a strong connection with him that will last a lifetime. He is a master of development while simultaneously providing goalies an opportunity to maximize their potential at the next level. After my graduation from Culver, I will continue working with the UnLock Goaltending Program through juniors, during my career at Dartmouth College, and beyond. Steve provides the perfect combination of passion and experience in the program, which truly makes it the best program a goalie can find.

JARED D’AMICO

U OF ANCHORAGE ALASKA

I have used the UnLock program for a couple of years and it is one of the reasons why I made NCAA Div. 1 hockey. It not only taught me the technical side of the position but also the mental side. Steve understands what it takes to get to the next level and truly cares about his goalies. Thank you, Steve  and UnLock for helping me get to the next level!

U WISCONSIN - STEVENS POINT

Working with Steve Briere and the UnLock Program has been instrumental in my success as a goaltender. It allowed me to work on every aspect of my game not only physically, but mentally as well. The qualities and skills that the UnLock Program implemented into my game has allowed me to take my game to the next level.  I highly recommend working with Steve, it was the best choice I've ever made.

RYAN RUCK

NORTHEASTERN UNIVERSITY - ST. LOUIS NHL DEVELOPMENT CAMP 2016

I’ve been working with Steve since his inaugural goalie prospect camp in the spring of 2011. His teaching and mentoring techniques on the ice and off ice allowed me to get better each year as I moved up from AAA to the NAHL, to the USHL and, most recently, my college commitment to Northeastern University. Being a part of Steve’s UnLock goalie coaching program and attending his camps provided me with the opportunity to improve my technical skills, my mental approach to the game, my physical conditioning and all the other necessary skills to be a high end goaltender. I am pleased to recommend Steve as a coach and a mentor. I look forward to keep working with Steve and UnLock and am very thankful for everything he and his camps have done for me.

The UnLock program is an unbelievable tool that would benefit any goalie. The wealth of knowledge that this program can provide is truly amazing. I have worked with Steve since I was about ten years old and I can honestly say that Steve and the UnLock program are two of the main reasons why I have made it where I am today. The people behind the scenes really want you to succeed and will do anything to help you reach your goals. If any goalie wants to truly reach his or her potential and see where hockey can take them, I would highly recommend using UnLock.

NICK DEERY

U OF MINNESOTA - DULUTH

I have worked with the UnLock program for the past two years. In that time, it has provided me with a system and set of guidelines to follow throughout the season. By following the program I have been able to overcome confidence and consistency issues. I now go into every game fully confident in myself to get the job done and play the best I can. Steve really cares about what he does; making himself accessible to me every step of the way. He takes the time to develop a trusting relationship not only as a goalie coach, but as a person.

Working with Steve has played a huge part in getting me to where I am today. His knowledge for the game is truly amazing. Besides being one of my coaches, Steve and I have developed a great friendship through working together. He truly cares about each of the goalies he works with and definitely makes working with him a great experience. I am very excited to have the chance to continue working with Steve to improve my game!

CHEYENNE STAMPEDE

I've been using the UnLock Goaltending program for four years now, since my bantam year. It has helped me every step of the way, with drills specified to work on every area of goaltending. With the UnLock program I have been able to develop from A hockey to Tier 1 AAA hockey and I plan to continue to use the program through my junior career.

I have worked with UnLock for the past two years, and during that time my game has improved immensely. While working within the UnLock Program, you are pushed to become better in all facets of your game. If you want to become an elite goalie, UnLock Professional Goalie Coaching can and will give you the tools to do it.

RYAN BEDNARD

BOWLING GREEN - FLORIDA NHL DRAFT PICK

The first time I worked with Coach Briere I knew he a lot of knowledge for goaltending. The UnLock Program I was given through him helped define my game instantly. I bought into the plan and it really made the game much simpler.

Dawson can't wait for the spring and summer hockey to begin. Dawson keeps his UnLock binder and writes out his goals everyday. You have greatly inspired him and we are grateful. Hope everyone is well and your goalies are having great success.

NICK SCHMIT

U WISCONSIN - STOUT

I have worked with the UnLock Program for the past 5 years. It has improved my game in every aspect on the ice, off the ice with specific stretches/workouts, and also the mental part of the game. The way Steve connects and communicates with each and every one of his goaltenders is top notch. I cannot thank Steve and UnLock enough for what they have done for me. I do not just look at him as a great goalie coach but as a friend as well! Thank you for everything Steve!

ROB RUCK

PARENT OF PLAYER: RYAN

Being a goalie parent might be one of the worst jobs in the world. However, working with Steve took a lot of anxiety out of the process. His understanding, candor and integrity are superlative. Through focused utilization of UnLock's training pillars (on ice skills, off ice workouts, vision training and mental preparation), my son, Ryan was able to make remarkable progress towards his goals. In a four year span, he moved from Midget AA to a D1 university commitment. That journey included playing stops in Midget AAA, the NAHL and the USHL. This wouldn’t have been possible without Steve - Ryan and I will be forever grateful.
