Pro Goalies

"I met Reto while skating in LA and I have appreciated his help while training in the summer. His understanding of the modern game and creative use of technology helped give perspective to the drills. I think his easy-going demeanor makes talking about goaltending fun and engaging. His personality and his preparation make him a great asset for a goaltender."

Ryan Miller (CAN), 2016 Vancouver Canacks NHL 

“Through Reto, I have learned to make the most difficult situations look simple. He works committed and with a detailed focus on my weaknesses without forgetting to enforce my strengths. Reto completes his skills of on and off ice practice with competent video work, where game and practice situations get diligent analyzed.”

Leonardo Genoni (SUI), 2017 SC Bern (NLA Switzerland), Swiss National Team

“I've worked with Reto a few times now and have really enjoyed it. He has a positive demeanor about him that I think is so beneficial to goalies during a long season. His understanding of the position and the mental side of things is as good as any that I've worked with."

Laurent Brossoit CAN), 2017 Edmonton Oilers (HNL), Bakersfield Condors (AHL)

“I asked Reto last summer to work with me to improve my goalie skills. I truly believe that Reto is one of the best in the field and I am happy that we can work together. He stabilized my game, which shows also in my stats with a 2.16 GAA and a .921 save percentage.”

Justin Pogge (CAN), 2013 BIK Karlskoga (Allsvenskan SWE), HC Slovan Bratislava (KHL 2016-17)

“I met Reto in December 2015 when I signed and joined the SC Bern. Everything was new for me and Reto helped me a lot, not just with the on the ice part, he helped me as well with all the off-ice and integration part. I became better goalie under Reto´s coaching. He showed me how to improve my butterfly style and technique game. But mainly I think he helped me with the mental part, he simplified my game and inspired me, Reto was like a great psychologist.”

Jakub Stepanek (CZE), 2016 SC Bern (NLA Switzerland


“Reto's knowledge, experience, and passion make him a joy to work with. He offers multiple ways for goalies to approach a situation, and allows them to choose what fits best in their own game.”

Troy Grosenick (USA), 2016 San Jose Sharks (NHL), San Jose Barracuda (AHL)

“Reto is one of the most innovative coaches. He is very communicative and knows
how to instruct another, how to observe and find the flaws in a client’s current form and build the trust necessary to take an athlete to the next level.”

Jonas Hiller (SUI), 2013 Anaheim Ducks NHL

“As one of the top professional hockey players, I demand the best from myself. In order to perform at the best of my abilities, I asked Reto to work with me to refine my skills. Great coaching does not always come from great athletes, but Reto is a gifted with highly developed talent in both areas. I have been very happy with his inputs.”

David Aebischer (SUI), 2014 Rapperswil-Jona Lakers (NLA Switzerland), NHL (2000-07)

“Through his coaching and training my game has not only improved, but my overall ability and confidence has grown exorbitantly. Without his help, my team would have not had the same opportunity to win a National Championship.”

Collin Delia (USA), 2015 Amarillo Bulls (NAHL), Merrimack College (NCAA 2016-17)

“Reto has always helped me analyzing my play in practice and games.
He always took his time to work with me to make myself a less predictable goaltender.”

Florence Schelling (SUI), 2014 Swiss Women’s National Team

“Since I am working with Reto my game really got to the next level. His way of understanding the position, not just the technique but also the mental part of the game was a big difference in my career the last 2 years.”

Ivars Punnenovs (LAT), 2015 Rapperswil-Jona Lakers (NLA Switzerland), Latvia National Team


“Reto was my goalie coach with the SC Bern. His knowledge and experiences of goalies is great and makes him a real pro as a coach. His professional work in the technical part for on ice practices including his game analytics, from his special off-ice program, the development as well his mental support for the goalies is great. His detailed statistics about the game and goalie performances help as well the whole team to improve.

Kari Jalonen (FIN), Head Coach SC Bern (NLA Switzerland)


“I got to know Reto both personally and professionally, and I was able to see his work with our team's goaltenders. I was impressed with his attention to detail with our NHL and with our Swiss league goalie; both were pushed and were challenged. Ultimately, I think a huge part of our team's success at that tournament was due to our goaltending. I found Reto to be diligent, harmonious but above all else meticulous in his work.”

Todd Woodcroft (CAN), Assistant Coach, Winnipeg Jet NHL


“I met Reto at an NHL goalie camp in Kelowna. I immediately recognized his passion and his knowledge that he built up over the years as a goalie and coach/mentor. It is very difficult to find coaches who dedicate themselves and their time, not only to evolve with today’s fast paced game, but also be open to creating, inventing and even learning new techniques. Reto has the ability to communicate and deliver the necessary information in a way that goalies can understand what technique or motion pattern he is specifically working on.”

Tim Turk (CAN), Shooting Coach NHL


“Reto Schürch has a comprehensive and outstanding expertise, he acquired that in many years of work, education and training. He is a committed, goal-oriented coach and a good motivator. He defines clear goals, communicates them professionally and encourages its players to peak performances. He works in a focused and still flexible manner; he is creative and extremely responsible. The quality of his work always meets our high expectations.”

Harry Rogenmoser (SUI), Head Coach and GM, Rapperswil-Jona Lakers NLA 


“Our team asked Reto to assist in the scouting for Swiss goalies. We asked him to participate in the process because of his reputation as one of the best goalies coaches in the international professional business. He brings with him years of professional experience as a goalie, as well as experience coaching some of the top players in the US and Switzerland. We truly believe that Reto is one of the best in the field who can offer a lot to those who ask for his advice and coaching.”

Francois Allaire (CAN), Goaltending Coach, Colorado Avalanche NHL


“Reto Schurch is outstanding Goalie Coach. Real Team Player! He is great to work with. He builds good relationship with his athletes and he finds the goalies strengths and points to improve. He works methodically and everything is well planned and organized: on- and off-ice work, statistical data, video feedback, scouting.

He uses video as a individual coaching tool, to improve goalie and whole team defense. Our players have learned a lot working with him after practice on goalie drills and scoring drills.”

Ville Peltonen (FIN), Assistent Coach, SC Bern (NLA Switzerland)


“I had the pleasure of working with Reto Schurch with excellent results. We won the Championship with SC Bern. He is a very competent coach, a good communicator, and a dedicated team player. I recommend him without reservation."

Dr. Saul L. Miller (CAN), Performance Consultant / Psychologist 

“I've worked with Reto during 2 seasons with the Rapperswil-Jona Lakers. His competences as well as his character are excellent. He is a very loyal guy and with his national and international experience, he is a great asset for the coaching team. Either as a goalie coach as well as assistant coach, he knows the hockey in all aspects and is a thru."

Michel Zeiter (SUI), Head Coach and GM, EHC Winterthur (NLB Switzerland)


“In the summer of 2016, I had the pleasure of getting to know, and working with Reto Schurch. Reto came highly recommended by a friend, and he said Reto would be a great addition to our high- end NHL goalie camp.
Off the ice, a few of Reto’s strengths that stand out to me are his organizational skills and professionalism and he is also a great communicator. On the ice, Reto possesses the ability to teach and train both Jr/College and also NHL level players. His knowledge of goaltending is clearly at an advanced level.”

Ray Petkau (CAN), NHLPA Agent and Organizer of NET360
