Out of any of the coaches I have had, Dale I could relate to the most. Being a skilled guy, he taught me a lot about shooting, passing and compete level. His passion and intensity in practice and on the bench was contagious to his players. Dale helped me a lot in getting me ready for the NHL!!

Best coach I've had, very smart and knows what it takes.
Knows how to make players better and help them improve in all areas.
Derk is a very good coach and seems to always find a way to push you and make you better. He was an unreal hockey player himself so he knows the game and it not only makes him a good coach, but a good teacher as well which really helped me out as a player. I took another step in my hockey career when I played for Dale and he was a big part of my success. My skills got better, my hockey IQ improved and I was always motivated to strive for more while having him as my coach.

Tim really thought it was fun and up tempo. He liked that he improved his awareness and making smarter heads up plays and better stick handling. He thought it was a well rounded camp that worked on areas he needed to improve on. He would definitely do your camp again.
WHL Prince Albert Raiders
I spoke with Brennan and he enjoyed this camp and felt it was very well set up and run. The daily sessions and this time of the summer worked well for us. As a D-man - he benefitted from the focus on offence. Thanks for the opportunity and your attention to help Brennan improve his game.

I liked the camp, and thought it was great!! I learned things at the camp that I have never been taught before - like having your stick on the ice when you are in front of the goalie; I like how you really stressed keeping your head up at all times; I liked how you worked on our individual skills like passing, deking with our heads up.
I thought you were a very informative instructor and kept things positive. I really enjoyed the camp and would like to go again next year.
WHL Swift Current Broncos Draft Pick
I thought that camp was ran fantastic. I like the enthusiasm that you showed on the ice when you were helping us and demonstrating drills. I thought that the trivia helped get guys loose and release some stress with some good laughs before the sessions. I can't think of any negatives, it was a very well rounded performance by you and your workers.

Rykr reported that he really liked you, your camp and the older experienced instructors. He also stated that all your players were very talented that attended which makes it even better. He also liked the education side of things that you reviewed with the boys. This is something missing big time for these players.
I have coached Rykr’s age group-rural kids in Moosomin-Melville area from start of hockey to where they are now and nice to see YOU getting them ready for the next level with your camp.
It is the little things that make a huge difference and the kids are like sponges and can keep learning to improve their hockey IQ and game.
Thanks, Jeff Cole
WHL Regina Pats Draft Pick
Brodie's comments were that he enjoyed the camp and the instructors. A full practice with puck possession of some sort is something that is overlooked in many camps. It was refreshing to see this as a main focus. Many thanks for your efforts. We will be looking forward to another camp in the future.

Josh loved your camp. He said it was the best one he’s been to. It’s too bad he had his little mishap and couldn’t finish the last couple days. I knew when he said that he just wanted to go to listen to what you had to say, that he thought a lot of you.
