" I wanted to let you know that my son really enjoyed your hockey camp he just attended and made me promise that he can come back again next summer. I certainly will sign him up. He learned so much and had fun at the same time, just as you promised in your flyer."
"Zachary and Alexis enjoyed your summer camp so much! They talk about what they learned and all of your Coaches. Thanks for making it so much fun and for the great instruction!"
-Dan and Michelle deLeeuw
"Just wanted to thank you for all the work you do for the kids at your camps. Christian had a great time at the camps and he gained so much hockey and skating knowledge, it shows every time he's on the ice.
FYI, Christian started his first year on an actual hockey team recently and was asked after the "try-outs" to be the goalie for the House Mite A1 North team in MCYH. I know his experience and skating at your camps contributed significantly to his great performance at the "try-outs" and will help him throughout the season.
Thanks again and hope to see you next summer!"
-Rich and Christian Young
"Thank you again for all of your work with the kids. Your love of the game, ability to get on the kids level and desire to teach them this sport shines through with everything you do with them. I know my girls love it and have learned more at your camps and clinics then at any other hockey experience we have tried."
"Thank you again for a week well spent! Michael gained a lot in practical hockey skills and his self-confidence also grew leaps and bounds. It doesn't get any better than that! He was extremely happy to be there every day. Thank you for all your effort and reaching out prior to the start of camp."
"Thanks for the photos, Jim! Jacob really enjoyed the camp this summer! By Wednesday of that week, he had already asked if he could do it again next summer. I think he really got a lot out of it and it shows on the ice. He recently had Mite re-evaluations at Lakeshore and showed a different skater out there than he did last spring in the original evaluations!
Thanks for having a great camp!"
"I want to thank you for the most wonderful week that Matthew had at your hockey camp last week. He was interested in getting a jump start on learning how to check before his Pee Wee season started. But he learned so much more. He also made a lot of new friends and really had a fun time. We will be back next year for sure."
"Thanks for another great camp. It's always a pleasure to watch a young man who has not played hockey all that long work hard and develop under your coaching, as well as learn to take the constructive criticism! Please thank your coaches for us as well."
Bill and Pam
"I just wanted to take a moment and let you know what a great time Owen had at your camp! He is still talking about all the coaches and everything he learned. He was on the ice with me last night and his confidence is at the highest level I have ever seen, and his improvement is great! I am very impressed with your staff and your personal commitment to each and every player! Thank you very much!"
-Steve Parshall, Father of skater and Webster Shroeder High School Coach.
Joe and I just wanted to thank you and your staff for showing Joey once again what a wonderful time hockey camp can be. He absolutely loved it!! He was up and ready to go each and every morning looking forward to his day. He couldn't wait to get to bed only to get up early to go to camp. It is evident that you and your staff are dedicated to teaching and instilling in kids, the love of hockey. You have done so with Joey. We can see his skills develop each and every camp session and he had so much fun doing it. We can't wait for the next one! It is true that Coaches surely make the difference!!" The Fragale's
Hi Jim, just wanted to thank you again for the camps you ran this summer. As usual, Nick had a great time and came away improving his skills as he always does when attending your camps. I think one of the things he looks forwad to is coming back each year to show Todd how much he has improved. Todd really pushes him and Nick seems to soak up everything he says. You have a great team of Coaches! Thanks a bunch." Kristen Dilg".
"I just wanted to thank you again for the Hockey Camp this past week. Matthew had a great time and said he learned alot (i.e. crossing over backwards). It was definitely a very positive experience for him. You have an excellent group of Instructors that really care about the skaters improvement. Many times I noticed your Instructors taking Matt off to the side and working with him one on one. We appreciate all of your hard work!" Katie and Bob Alexander
"This camp had top of the line practice drills that were very organized. Our boys, Hunter 10 and Brenden 6, loved going to camp all week. You can't beat the cost for a great hockey camp!" Jen Howell
"Brendan loved EVERYTHING about the camp. It was easy for him to get up in the morning to practice his long strides and play kickball. He loved his Instructors especially Coach Troy. As a Parent I saw the right combination of personal instruction mixed in with off-ice fun. He can't wait until next summer!" Megan Haims "I appreciate the great job you did with the kids. Nick really enjoyed the experience!"
- Eric Matzan, Father
"Jim Armstrong and the Strong Hockey Camp Instructors have been a key component of our family's hockey development. The expert teaching our 3 skaters have received continues to be a big contributor to their success. They provide excellent instruction!"
- Bill Pelligra, Father of Mark, Alex, and Nathan
"Ben learns more at this camp then the rest of the year. The instructors care about him and make sure his total camp experience is fun and learning. Off-ice he is always accounted for and chaperoned. I never have to worry as the instructors are always with the kids and participating and making sure they are active. What happens off-ice is never a concern at the Strong Hockey Camps."
- Dave Korpiel, father of Ben Korpiel
