Nathan Grobins, a past NHL goalie originally from Houston, is exposing his tips for success at the Houston hockey camp Dec. 22 to 24.

Nathan Grobins

Success does not come easy being from a small town, especially when you’re an athlete.  This has never been an obstacle for Nathan Grobins and his drive for hockey.  Nathan is originally from Houston, B.C. which is where it started for him.  Grobins trained and played minor hockey out of Claude Parish Memorial Arena with the support of his parents.  His father Andy, who also played for the Houston Luckies, was his inspiration and he was determined to follow in his father’s footsteps.

After many years with the Houston Minor Hockey Association, it was time to move up the hockey ladder.  Nathan was sent to Notre Dame for two years.  He spent three years playing Juniors for the Quesnel Millionaires and Prince George Spruce Kings and led them to win a championship.  Following juniors, Grobins got on board with the Boston Bruins NHL free agent camp which led to his first professional contract signed with the Jacksonville Bullets.  Nathan played 13 successful years in his pro hockey career. He attended the Florida Panthers 1996 camp and made South Florida his home with his wife Kris.

His dedication to the sport has made a transition to another level.  Now he spends his time inspiring youth hockey to help develop them and maximize their talents.  He works closely with goalies, players, and is venturing into roller hockey and students with autism. He owns and operates CanadianMade Hockey out of South Florida but travels back to BC to spend time with family and invest time in youth hockey. Nathan will be in Houston to instruct hockey camps in various locations to give youth hockey a memorable hockey experience to add to their athletic experience to add to their athletic repertoire.  Grobins said: “I want to inspire upcoming hockey players and let them know that dreams can come true.  Keep your vision, work hard, and never lose your focus.”

Grobins is running a Houston Hockey Camp December 22 to 24, and anyone interested is asked to contact Nathan Grobins at 561-667-8107 or Canadianmade001@yahoo.com
