I have known Coach Day both as a former student and now as a coach. What drew me to him was his track record of successful goaltenders at elite levels of hockey. What set him apart from other coaches was his in depth understanding of the goaltender’s mental game. He is able to make a goaltender understand their game, the factors within their control and the preparation needed to perform. This understanding translates into not just a better goaltender, but a more consistent goaltender that all high level coaches seek.~ James LaCour
Goalie Coach, Bemijidi State University
Rob has been with our program for 7 seasons now. In that time frame he has helped our goalies develop rock solid mental games. He knows what is required for goalies to be successful mentally at a high level. Additionally he has helped our players raise their level of preparedness and has done a great job helping to create a winning culture. He is able to connect with today’s player and understands the tie-in between hockey and the real world. If you are looking to develop a rock solid mental game he is your guy.~ Craig Russell

Having known and been coached by Coach Rob Day, I can speak for his dedication to studying the mental aspect of the game since I played. Rob helped my mental game improve dramatically and with the 20 plus years of study since then, I can only be excited for the goaltenders that get to work with him now.~ Eric Soltys

In addition to being a superb and easy to work with goalie coach, Rob also developed a real mentor relationship with Michael. Rob worked with Michael on the “mental” side of the game and provided invaluable guidance as to how Michael should approach his hockey development. We are not a traditional “hockey family,” so we really valued Rob’s insights and wisdom. Michael subsequently was invited to try out for, and was selected to play for, the USA Hockey National Team Development Program. Although many coaches and mentors over the years obviously helped to contribute to Michael’s success in being selected for that Program, there is no doubt in our minds that Michael would not have that opportunity now but for Rob’s teaching and guidance.
