Thank you Tom for having the camp and doing such a great job. My son enjoyed the camp and could not wait to go back the next day. We appreciate the feedback and the videos you provided was really a step above. Your camp was outstanding! - Andy

My son absolutely loved this camp, from the coaches to both the on and off ice sessions. He did not want this week to end and said that he definitely wants to do the camp again. I think the post camp recap & videos are an extremely valuable tool that Chris will be able to use throughout the season. Very well done all around. Thanks Tom! - Dale

Alex had a great time and came away from the camp with the development and confidence she needs for the upcoming season. Thanks! - Eric

The post camp video and summary was very impressive! - Bobby
