I wanted to thank you for an exceptional weekend experience for my son, Jackson Smaldone. He was one of the youngest guys at your Player Development Clinic at RMR in Colorado. He really benefited from the challenge of playing with more experienced players under your expert guidance. This last weekend, he won the MVP award for the 8Us at the SIHA tournament in Colorado Springs. He warmed up using your approach and practiced his weaknesses right before the game :) He went from being just one of the guys at the beginning of this season to being the guy the the other teams are talking about in their locker rooms. You are a big part of this growth. Our entire family thanks you for your passion for our little guys and their development. WE look forward to seeing you again next time you are in Colorado.- Jen Smaldone
Thanks to you and Vince, you guys rocked, exceeded all expectations! What an awesome weekend for our kids! - Jim Kane
We really owe it all to you and your camp in Lloydminster. Ewen really had no intention of trying out for Team Alberta as he never really believed he was good enough. Your camp gave him the confidence he needed to try out and to make the team. He was fortunate enough to be awarded a spot on the All-Star team and a spot on the All- American team - Lisa MacPherson
Thanks a million for giving us your time. I know my son was trying
something that you showed them on Sunday during his State Wars practice.
Your expertise is fabulous and your enthusiasm unmatched! - Jackie Clayton
THANK YOU for understanding the struggles of a single parent who wants to do everything possible to help her boys become not just better well-rounded hockey players, but better well-rounded people in general. After Collin shared what he learned while attending your clinic last year, there is much to gain and apply to their lives even beyond the rink. Thank you for helping me to more easily make this opportunity possible for both my boys. - S.C.
Thanks for another great camp at The Farm. Nick and his "brothers" had such a great time, they forgot to be sore and tired from all the hard work. Until the van on the way home.
The instructors were great. They immediately earned the kids respect with their hockey skills, but the kids responded to them so well because of their energetic and encouraging manor. To immerse our gang into such a positive hockey culture for a few days not only did wonders for their skills, but has them playing with a newfound joy of the game. That explains why, although the camp officially ended at 5pm, many of the kids were still shooting, skating and playing in the barn well after 9.
I'd especially like to thank you, your wife and kids for your hospitality. Your family's easy going nature made the parents want to hang out at The Farm as much as the kids did. It was nice getting to spend some time with you and Lisa, and fun getting to know the other parents from around the country.
Count us in for next year!

I wanted to say thanks again for a great weekend. Both Jack and Sam had a great time. Jack commented that it was the best camp he ever attended- that includes ice- they really enjoyed the farm and the off-rink training. Jack is ready to come back next weekend! I look forward to seeing both the boy's play and utilizing the skills they learned in camp. - Bob Mali
This was our fourth camp with you and I continue to be amazed at your dedication and enthusiasm. It goes far beyond just hockey; the philosophies that you espouse continue to help John develop positive behaviors both on and off the rink. Keep up the good work and see you again soon! - Andrew Kinsey
Thank you so much! Aidan really loved the weekend camp and wants more! He learned a lot of great goalie tips and you worked him hard!! He loved it! He was so ijmpressed with you…he took it all in! He wants to come to another camp and skate out too! He is playing in the garage right now!!! Working on his weak points! - Margie Grant
Thanks again for bringing your boot camp to Michigan this weekend - I thinkI enjoyed it as much as my son Will did :-) When I asked him what he took away from your session, he said these two things...
1. "The better I get, the more fun I'll have"
2. " I should spend more time on the things I don't do well"
...which was funny, because those were the two things struck me as well, as ways to approach and improve my own life. - Richelle Tragge
