  • "This program has been very beneficial for me in developing puck handling and game skills. It would be worthwhile for people of all hockey abilities. Dan is very knowledgeable of the sport and he is a great instructor. It is amazing how he can be so positive every week at 5:30a.m."
  • "This is a great instructional program...a must for any hockey dad without any previous ice time...With three boys on the ice, it gives a new perspective from the stands..."
  • "Dan provides an excellent venue for beginning and intermediate level skaters to practice basic skills fundamental to hockey and get some much appreciated scrimmaging experience.  Overall it is an valuable experience for those looking to improve skating technique and puck handling skills through technical drills and team communication exercises.  Dan's level of personal commitment to the program and his attention to the progress of each individual set this instructional series on a level above most in the greater Grand Rapids area."
