Just wanted to follow up with you.
I didn’t get a chance to chat with you at Hartland.
I wanted to Thank you and your team for the great job they did in both Hartland WI. and Middleton.
I have been putting my son in about as many camps as I can.
The result from those camps are all over the place.
Some of them are barely more than daycare on ice.
Too many kids and not enough coaches.
Coaches that actually want to provide feedback to the kids at the right time helping the kid to make the correct decision/technique.
At one camp I watched a trainer run a station with their back towards the kid running the station the whole time and they had no idea if they were doing it correctly or not.
Many of them were not. No feedback. The kids learned nothing.
In Hartland I talked with coach Jeff from Wyoming (I think) He had a 9yo son named Blake at the camp.
I really liked his style. He kept things moving and the kids in line. But always stayed positive with them and wanted them to have fun….even while making them do push ups
I talked with several others throughout the week. All very helpful and seemed to want to help the kids get better.
I had a 1 on 1 coach in Hartland for my son (Frank). He did great. Provided feedback/advice in real time in most of the drills.
He kept it fun.
This was exactly what I was looking for and I think my son did get a lot from it.
Improved stickhandling, Shooting and skating.
