About Jan Goris

Jan started playing Ice Hockey at the age of 11. When he was 12 years old, he played for Dordrecht U14. With his team he reached the national finals, and just lost 8 to 7. In the same year, he participated in a tournament with the national team in the Czech Republic. After this tournament he was selected for the national U14 team, but due to Covid-19 he wasn't able to compete for the full season.

Jan then transferred to Den Bosch for the next season. While competing at Den Bosch, he played only 3 games when another covid lockdown game. After the covid pandemic, he played for the U15 team in Den Bosch. At that time, he was only 14 years old. They got to the finals once again. The following season, he started playing for the U17 team in Tilburg, where he still plays to this day. 

In this season, he had the same tournament as a couple of years ago with the national team in the Czech Republic and another tournament with Tilburg in Sweden. Right now he is 16 years old and plays for Tilburg Trappers U17 and for the U23 too. Besides that he is playing for the National Dutch teams for 4 years now. 

One of his major strengths is his power skating. He is very good in skating and possesses a lot of explosiveness. Besides that is he is a very motivated athlete and wants to do everything to become a better athlete. An area Jan is currently working on is his shooting and in game performance. We strongly believe there is still much room for improvement, especially considering his growth in recent years and his motivation to become better.

In the United States, he wants to make the most out of his time. First and foremost, he aims to find a good school where he can develop as both a person and an athlete. Additionally, he strives to perform to the best of his ability for his Ice Hockey team.

He is currently enrolled in his final year of high school in the Netherlands (havo and IB English) and is expected to graduate in the Spring of 2024. He is still exploring which academic direction appeals to him and hopes to figure this out during his time at a boarding school. Currently, he finds engineering interesting.
