"Launy was the first coach that took a chance on my then 5 year old goalie. He’s small, very young, swims in his goalie gear, but just wanted a chance to be coached. Launy didn’t hesitate to work with him. We were excited for someone to take the time with him, but we were not expecting the result of just 6 months in lessons...
Beyond Launy, he has curated the most incredible group of coaches. Coaches that have gone above and beyond the standard role of a coach. These coaches all inhibit the natural ability to connect with their students, demonstrate a remarkable high level of respect and passion for the sport."

"Bancroft Minor Hockey contracted STP Goaltending to provide weekly instructional training from September 2022 to March 2023.
From BDMHA’s perspective, the goalie training that Launy provided was exceptional and well received. As the President of BDMHA and father of a U16 goalie, I can say that there were no complaints about the instruction provided. Each time I talked to a goalie or their parents they had nothing but positive words to say about Launy and the STP instructors.
Launy was very punctual and provided exactly what he had proposed in his training package. We supplied the goalies, he supplied the knowledge, enthusiasm and professionalism that made our goalies better throughout the season.
We would recommend STP Goaltending services to any hockey association that is interested in goalie specific training."

"My son has worked with coach Launy ever since he was a beginner. Always an inspiration and with an encouraging, positive voice, Launy has brought out the best in my son, motivating him to always strive to improve. As my son has progressed up the levels, their training sessions were continually adapted to challenge him more and more. Because of Launy, my son is a confident goalie who takes pride in what he does and the skills he brings to his team. Thank you Launy for being an integral part of his minor hockey journey!"

"My son Tyler has been working with Launy for 8 years now. Bar down, Launy is a hard working, fantastic, dedicated great coach. He teaches the fundamentals as well as respect for the game of hockey and the goalie position. He pushes hard but at the same time ensures that each lesson is fun. Launy is the best goalie mentor for my son that I could ask for. Tyler looks up to Launy, values his advice and strives to be the best that he can be because of Launy’s encouragement and coaching. Thanks Launy."

"Launy has worked with my son Burke for over three seasons now, with my son showing great progress in his technical skills. However his biggest area of progress has been on the mental side of the game and that is what has allowed him to play at, and have great success at the highest levels for his age group. Goaltending is by far the most pressure-filled and mentally demanding position, and Launy’s greatest strength is his patience and ability to connect with each goalie to help them be mentally tough and focused in order to be the best they can be on the ice. I highly recommend Launy and his team – we will be there any and every time we’re in Toronto. Thanks Launy!"

"...I just wanted to thank you for your amazing work this past season. Once we made the coaching change, both of our goalies' stats improved dramatically. Actually our goals against dropped a full goal per game on average. Elijah you were fantastic to work with and we would love it if you would be willing to come back and work with us this season..."

"STP Goaltending, and Coach Elijah in particular, were key to the continued development of my son and his goaltending skills. I was so impressed by Coach Elijah’s patience and dedication to my son’s team last season that my son continued into the summer attending some of the STP Goaltending summer sessions. The team at STP are professional and aim to bring out the best in their young athletes. Highly recommended!"

"I’ve had the pleasure of working with Launy at two adult skills clinics and I always look forward to his station! He introduces an element, demonstrates it, and provides honest feedback and encouragement along the way. He’s great at meeting the goalie 'where they’re at' and pushing them just a little further each time. When working with him you’re not just another goalie. He gets to know you well and find that part of you that wants to get better."
