As others are saying, it’s great to get reps in when the crowd is lower. Kid should be a decent skater before showing up.
Cheap ice time? Wow. This is awesome. How much is one lesson? I want to look into it.
Muscle memory is so important. I make my son jump up and down a lot so someday he can dunk. Just kidding. But yes muscle memory is very important. Im going to check this out.
His instagram page has a lot of hype/followers...but he is former NHL player giving false promises to parents everywhere that their kids can also be in the NHL in an attempt to make money.
Just found his Instagram page. Its really cool. Why wont some of these kids make it to the NHL? We live in a great hockey area and have the best leagues, clinics and camps. Wouldn't those things produce NHL players? My guess is 1/3 will at least play NCAA hockey and maybe 1/4 beyond that.
Sure some might make it to the NHL...but you're crazy if you think anyone who does this camp will. If you have an average player sending them to a camp like that won't help.
It is good for higher end players that need some ice time to work on creativity and shooting of a move. Not good for primary development. He is a nice guy who connects with the kids well. He’s given my son some good advice on being a 2 way defenseman and boosted his on puck confidence. I think in a different setting he would be very good but the walk on skills are not going to do that. As others said too many kids and no correction outside of pushing their motor a bit.
That makes sense. I had only heard of him because I follow this kid who is amazing, lives out of state and I guess played on one of his elite teams. I then noticed this hockey factory program. There’s so many programs out there.
