What some hockey players say about us 

"Training with coach Brdey allowed me to grow my game to heights I never thought it could.  I notice how the skills we were taught translate directly into game situations and have benefited me tremendously.”

“Skating with Mike growing up helped me learn some of the most valuable skills in the game. The drills were perfect to make every situation game-like and realistic. My puck handling skills were able to evolve just by skating with Mike weekly.”

“I’ve had the pleasure of being coached by coaches Vinny Messina and Mike Brdey. They took their time to make my youth hockey experience enjoyable and vital to the hockey player and person I am today. They dedicated their lives to teaching me the game of hockey with hands-on learning. I appreciate everything both coaches have done for me.”
