But just try to keep him away. “Monsieur Rousseau?” I ask as I stroll into the skate shop, knowing full well he’s in his Zen. “Ah, oui. Who is that?

Each year we receive several testimonials from current and former students sharing their positive experience with our program and the advances that they have made in their hockey skills and enjoyment of the game. What really warms our hearts are the experiences that former students share citing the impact that our program and teachings had on their lives and how they are now passing these values on to their children.
We are a family of hockey coaches and have been studying the game for 30 years. We have learned how to break down the games skills and concepts to its roots and have developed a curriculum to effectively teach them to players of all levels. Playing hockey is about having fun. It’s fun to compete, to improve, to work toward a goal and to achieve it. We hope to have the opportunity to share time with you on the ice this off-season.
