Ron Slavick was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. He began his hockey career playing in the Pittsburgh area for a local travel team as well as his high school team. In the mid 90's he attended the Hockey Night in Boston midwest selection camp in Michigan. His play at the camp allowed him the opportunity to then move to Michigan and play midget major hockey as well as junior hockey.
After his playing days, Ron helped many goalies in his spare time, and in 2013 he started Unique Breed Goaltending. His values, passion for the game and desire to make every goalie that he works with the best they can be, has helped make Unique Breed Goaltending the fastest growing name for goalies in Michigan.
Ron works with many teams across Michigan and Ohio and is the personal goalie coach for many goalies. The 2016-2017 season will be Ron's 3rd season at Cranbrook Prep School.
Ron lives in Westland, Michigan with his wife Angie, his two sons, Joey and Ben, son number 3 on the way and of course his German Shepherd, Diesel.
