Joel was born and raised in Saskatoon and developed a keen interest in sports at an early age. Learning to skate at the tender age of 6, soon it was hockey along with indoor soccer during the winter and baseball and soccer in the summer. Having been fortunate to play on a few Canadian National teams, Joel was able to travel to Japan and throughout Canada and the United States playing baseball. Joel’s step-father was a track and field coach, having coached athletes at the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles. This led to Joel excelling in sprints, hurdles and long jump.

Eventually, hockey was the primary sport in both winter and summer training.
