2018-19 Nova Southeastern University Athletics Head ShotsChandler Donckers - GK Nova Southeastern University

HOMETOWN Grosse Ile, Mich.


Played four years at Grosse Ile High School under Amy Rossow...Named First Team All-District, All-Region and All-State as a senior...Broke the state record for fewest goals allowed in a season (5).

Majoring in Communications...Team captain of her club team, Michigan Jaguars FC...Chose NSU because of the opportunity to play collegiately and seek a professional career...Most memorable athletic moment was receiving First Team All-State honors as a senior...Names her club soccer coach, Dan Diac, as the most influential person in her life because he was a man of very few words, but was very impactful when he did speak...She wouldn't be playing at NSU without his guidance...Daughter of Bob and Lori Donckers...Has one sister, Brooklyn.

My name is Peter Tappenden. I was the goalkeeper for Vardar Academy for two years, played for the State and Regional ODP teams, and am currently on roster for the Michigan Bucks PDL team and am committed to the division one program at Colgate.

Through my years of playing soccer I have met many trainers and goalie coaches and I can confidently say that Lucian is one of the best in the Mid-West and even the country. I've trained with him since I was 11 and at every age he was the perfect coach for me.

Lucian knows the game very well and understands how to coach every aspect of it; from technique to mental toughness to fitness. I would not be the player I am today without Lucian's training. I strongly recommend Lucian as a coach to goalkeepers of any age or skill level that are looking to fulfill their full potential as players.

As expected my sons had a great week at camp. You work them hard and they love it! Very well run camp. All the coaches are wonderful, and love the attention to each player. Thank you for the opportunity for the boys.

Just wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU for the superior training at the summer Goal Keeper camp this past week. My daughter learned so much, and thoroughly enjoyed all the training. She said she had to work hard, but it was totally worth it, because you made her love the goal keeper position even more (which she did not think was possible.) She looks forward to showing her team and coaches her refined skills next week, when we kick off our season with team camp!

So thank you again! And please let all the coaches know they did a fabulous job! We look forward to attending more training with No1GKS in the future!

Dan Diac served as goalkeeper coach for Schoolcraft College and I was fortunate enough to work with him over a two year period during my collegiate career.

Dan's coaching assisted in my development on a technical, tactical, physical and psychological level.

Dan brings a wealth of experience, vast knowledge of the game, and a professional approach to his coaching. I am very grateful to have been coached by Dan and thankful for our continued friendship as I wish him all the best with his future endeavors in the game.

2010 Regional Goalie of the Year -

I was a goalkeeper for the Eastern Michigan University women’s soccer team for five years.

I had the pleasure of training under Dan Diac for two years while playing at EMU. He is a great goalie coach who has a lot of experience which reflects in his sessions.

One of my favorite things about Dan as a goalkeeper coach is that he focuses on developing technique, which in my opinion is the difference between an average goalkeeper and a great goalkeeper.

He helped me to fine tune my goalkeeping techniques by not only going over the basics but by teaching and developing the more advanced techniques.

His training was a significant part of my success at Eastern.

Coach Lucian is a knowledgeable goalkeeper coach who has helped me through my youth to college career as a goalkeeper.

I have trained with him on many occasions and he was available for individual and team trainings! He has helped me develop into a successful division 1 goalkeeper at Duquesne University.

I am very happy that I have had the chance to train with Coach Lucian. You will not be disappointed!

Madonna University
Goalkeeper #18

I have had the privilege to work with Dan Diac. Being a freshmen goalkeeper at Madonna University was intimidating enough. Dan was my goal keeper coach who not only showed me new techniques and form but also gave me confidence.

Confidence is the first thing Dan works on and then from there he builds you up. He is very inspirational and pushes you as far as he knows your capable of.

Without Dan I don't believe I could have beat out the senior goalkeeper in the starting position. He is the first person that comes to mind when I think of a Coach.

He has passion and drive. He has the ability to transform any average goalkeeper or player into not just a great one but one that has leadership and confidence.
