We just wanted to send a quick note to tell you how impressed we are with the camp Derek attended this past week in Webster.  His confidence level is through the roof and he improved as much in a week as I would expect in a season.  Did I mention he had a ton of fun and it was the only week of the year he did not complain about getting out of bed? This was a wonderful experience for him and has helped him not only with his skating and hockey skills but with his social skills as well.  We are so appreciative of everyone who worked with Derek and we can't wait to attend some of the one day clinics in the fall and winter as well as next summer.  When can we sign up?  Thank you, thank you, thank you. Kelly + Joe

Thank you for a great week of hockey camp!  Liam and Ethan had a great time, made some new friends, and learned much!  Both boys had great things to say about their Coaches, so thanks for picking a great team.  Kudos to you and your coaches for so many smiles on so many players this week and many weeks this summer!

Hi Coach,
I just wanted to say thank you for putting on another fantastic hockey camp!  I feel that every time Andy participates in your camp, he ends the week showing improvement in his skills and his confidence, and he has fun doing it.  You obviously take the time to work with each kid individually and I truely appreciate it!

I just wanted to thank you for a really great experience this week.  Avery had a really good time, and despite being very new to hockey, he had a blast being on the ice and learning from all of you in a fun environment.  It exceeded my expectations and he was genuinely excited every day to be there!
Thank you, Kara

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for the time and patience you spent with my son Zachary this week.  Your staff pushed him hard enough to keep him focused and on task and engaged.  He loved your camp and said he cannot wait to attend another session.  This is the first sports camp he has every been that excited about.”  Larry

“Our son Ryan had a fantastic time at camp!  Thanks so much for the picture and positive feedback.  We plan on seeing you at future camps!”

“Hi Coach,
I wanted to thank you for a great week!  Zach had a great time and is looking forward to other camps!”

Thank you again for a great camp.  Blake was unsure about attending, never having gone to one before, but he loved it and he has already told us he can't wait for next year's camp. 
I also had a great time, by coaching and volunteering I don't always get to just watch Blake during practice and games; and I had a lot of fun watching him progress and having fun.
Thanks again.


Thanks again for another Great Camp.  Your balance of structure, fun and development
of skills is like no other camp. Zach had a great time and is looking forward to your
skills clinics over vacations!

Hi Jim,
Thanks for a great camp.  The program was super and your assistants were very helpful
in teaching and caring for the group.  Alex really enjoyed it and will be looking
forward to next year.

Thanks, Mark Bolis

I really appreciate all that you do for
the kids and this great game! Caden had an absolute blast last week, and is
already prepping his brother about what to expect next year!
Have a great rest of the summer, Jim. And we'll definitely be seeing you
down the road.

Thanks again, Dave Cranston

Thanks again for running an awesome Armstrong Camp last week. 
When kids are excited about going to a camp, then we hit a Home Run
......My daughter loved it...

Regards, Leo

Just wanted to let you know what a fantastic week Maddie & Mason had at the
camp, they absolutely loved it. The level of instruction and intensity was perfect!!
Your instructors were awesome as well, both on and off ice.
Great job, excellent program. 

Owen and Karen McIntee

" 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."

-Dorreen Gaede

"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."
-Lisa Cook


"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."
-Kay Muscato

"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!"
-Joan Mountain

"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."
-Kathy Licata

"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
"I want to thank you for running such an excellent summer camp. Both Christopher and Katie enjoyed every aspect of the program. Both my husband and I saw great improvement in both of their skills. It was certainly worth the 40 mile round trip from Newark. We look forward to attending again next Summer. Thank you!"

Robyn & Jake Stack
"Your team made him feel comfortable and gave him the confidence to enter the locker room to dress and undress without us. He loved going on the ice with kids he didn't know and doing the drills that were geared for his level! He felt like he learned alot and we thought so too. We saw it when he came home and of course on the ice for fridays scrimmage! I can't say thank you enough for the great experience!!!!( I thought he might have come home and gave us a hard time). He still feels good about the camp a month later! Thank You!"

-Alysia King

"My children thoroughly enjoyed the Hockey Camp! The camp was challenging and very well organized. I would highly recommend this camp for all levels of players. As a Teacher myself, I noticed that you did an excellent job catching and maintaining focus during skills training. Also, I like the way you had the kids constantly engaged in the drills".

- Kimberly Walczyk, Mother of 2 skaters in our Webster Summer Camp.

"Dear Coach Armstrong, I was having a discussion with Max last night regarding the upcoming tryouts for Perinton Youth Hockey. He told me that as a result of going to your camp he has confidence going into tryouts and feels he did learn a lot about his game from you and your staff. He said he knows he has to work on his strides but commented that he will improve with the long stride techniques that you taught him. Needless to say I had a huge smile and I wanted to share this with you. Thanks a million!!"

- Charlie Crotser, Father of a skater in our Fairport Camp.
