Thomas is the Head of Goaltending Development at the Swedish Ice Hockey Association and also a co-founder/co-owner of the Sweden Hockey Institute. He studied hockey at the Sports Academy and was
the first employed goalkeeping coach in Swedish ice hockey as his first stint with Djurgården Hockey
started already in 1984 and he spent a total of 23 years in the club.

Thomas has worked for the Swedish Ice Hockey Association as an educator and author of educational materials and courses. He has also worked with multiple Tre Kronor national teams, preparing them for several World Cup and Canada Cup tournaments.

Thomas Magnusson has become one of the most influential goaltending minds in the world, spearheading significant change in Swedish hockey several years ago and thus helping many Swedish goalkeepers
to become one of the best in the world.

“With the emergence of VR as a training method, Sense Arena finally offers goalies a new way to effectively practice reading shot releases in a way that science first suggested back in the 1970s. I have honestly been waiting for this technology ever since, and thanks to Sense Arena, it is finally here. Box Control and reading releases are just two of the countless skills that goalies and their coaches can now train and develop thanks
to this groundbreaking technology.“
