Past Participant Testimonials

"Coach Charlie enriched my understanding of the game of hockey in every element. He made me aware of the differences between European and North American hockey. Coach Charlie impressed upon me that a healthy nutritional lifestyle and academic achievement are as important as on ice skill, development, and game preparation. I would highly recommend Coach Charlie to anyone looking to advance their game to a higher level!"
