Holding the Future
in his Goalkeeper Gloves

GK Tomer Chencinski shows his commanding presence on the field

GK Tomer Chencinski Remains Focused on his Next Move

Toronto, ON (Tuesday, September 22, 2009) – In our recent looks into the mindset of goalkeeper Tomer Chencinski, it has become quite visible that determination and focus have been two key ingredients in the success of the young netminder. While his veteran experience puts his skill level beyond that of many players his age, Chencinski knows that persistence will be the only way he continues to advance his game.

“I feel like I am a tireless worker, and I always try to do the best in everything I put my head and hands to,” he recently commented in an interview with Resolution Sports. “When I first started playing indoor, there were a ton of things to get used to, so I made sure to come in early and stay late to work on anything I could to help me improve.”

A commitment to training is something that the Farleigh Dickinson graduate says every player must display.

“I feel like no one is perfect and there is always something that I can work on,” he stated. “Anything I feel that I can do in order to get better, I will do without hesitation. The day that I feel I cannot give any more or feel that I am staying static, that is the day when I might hang up my gloves.”

Goalkeeper is a unique position in that it takes a number of years before everything seems to really click, and Chencinski knows that his best days between the pipes are still ahead of him.

“I am only 24 right now, and a goalkeeper only starts to peak in his late 20s,” he remarked. “I feel like I have loads of time, but, meanwhile, I will put my head down, work hard and we'll see what happens.”

Chencinski recently finished up the outdoor season with the Harrisburg City Islanders of USL-2. He is currently working hard in preparation for the next stage in his professional career, and he is doing it with absolute determination and focus, of course.
