Al Jensen
Former NHL goalie. Drafted by Detroit, went on to Washington and LA. Nine seasons in the NHL. Named all-Star goalie 1984. Currently an NHL scout.

I've been helping out Al at his goalie camp for several years and I strongly see that he runs a quality goalie camp for all ages. Al always has very good instructors helping him out. The goalies get a lot of one on one attention and they learn new skills that are required at all levels to become better goalies. I have personally seen improvement in the goalies attending his  camp during the week and I also see big improvement from his returning goalies. Overall Tenders is a quality goalie camp to send your goalie to improve their game. I currently am the goalie evaluator for NHL Central Scouting. I am in my 14th year of scouting goalies across North America.

"I have known Al since his early years at Tenders Goalie School. His camp was one of the first I taught at and his passion for the position was immediately evident. He treats every student with respect and pours his knowledge into each and every one of them. I have worked with many students that first began with Al; they come with a great base and understanding of this important position. "
Ben Vanderklok
Nashville Predators NHL Assistant Goaltending Coach / Niagara IceDogs OHL Goaltending Coach

"The difference between good goaltending and great goaltending is poise; confidence; and resiliency when the going gets tough. Tenders unique approach coaches all three. All goalie clinics teach skills – stopping the puck. Good goaltenders make good saves. Great goaltenders prevent goals from happening and win hockey games."
Rene - Buffalo

"My step son Brodie (Sarnia Sting OHL) attended Tenders when he was young, as did 2 of my nephews Dean and Riley. I feel Tenders is an excellent starter camp to get goalies off on the right foot. As an ex-goalie, a AAA coach and a goalie coach at several different hockey camps I know the components of a solid hockey school and this one is very good. I would highly recommend goalies starting out in this position to attend Tenders."
Mike Bukator OHL Scout

"I have known Al Stoddard for many years. I coached him when he was an aspiring goaltender and I have watched him develop into one of the premier coaches in the Niagara region. I highly recommend Al as an excellent goalie coach who cares deeply about the success of his students. ."
