PRO AMBITIONS AT THE PRAGUE HOCKEY CUP

AUGUST 2018

   

Jeff Serowik and Martin Straka were former teammates on The Pittsburgh Penguins. Jeff fondly remembers  Marty as one of the most skilled European players and nicest guys in his tenure of hundreds of former professional teammates. Straka is noted as one of the most prolific Penguins of all time as an NHL All Star. Jeff and Straka have teamed up to offer a European style training camp for our American Pro Ambitions youth hockey players in Marty’s hometown outside of Prague in Pilsen. The families who have played for us before on our Pro Ambitions Teams in the Prague Tournament realize that hockey in Prague is quite different than in the USA. Rinks are called Hockey Clubs with restaurants/pubs and private teams.  After leaving the NHL Straka moved back to the Czech Republic and served six more seasons as the team captain of Hockey Club Plzen in Pilsen. Afterwhich he quickly moved into development and coaching. He is now the franchise owner,  general manager of the club and also owns a hotel downtown.  Straka’s team of Czech coaches will be running the training camp. The style of play and training is very different than here in America. There is much to be learned from the Europeans as in turn they have much to learn from us.
