Testimonials

My daughter played a full Init-D season last year, a few short clinics here and there, and is on week #3 with the Intro Mites. I must say, that hands down, this is by far the most fun and best skating/hockey experience she has been involved with since day one. Great job coaches and the others who make it happen. My wife have boasted about the program to others and will definitely continue to do so.
Thanks,

  • Aaron

Thanks for a great camp. Our son Owen came off the rink every day sweating and smiling. He loved it and we will be signing up for the next session. Thanks again!

  • Mike

My son, Michael was in the last session of Intro Mites on Tuesday mornings. I want to give our compliments to the Coach. He is an exceptional coach and deserves an abundance of praise. He is so positive, fun and energetic. Each session was exciting for my son, yet well controlled, considering the challenging age group he was working with. I saw a big improvement in Michael’s skating ability and most importantly, he has developed a genuine love for the sport of hockey. He has been counting the days for it to start again, and following hockey at every level from High School to the Olympics. I have recommended this program to two of our friends who are now enrolled in the Saturday session, the coaching being the primary reason for it.

  • Shelley and Jeff

Thank you-Sage loved the intro mites and loved his coach- Tad. He had so much fun and learned a lot too. Tad is a great coach & does a really good job with the kids. Teaching them, and at the same time making it fun for them. It was well worth the drive from Belle Plaine for the class! Sage is now looking forward to the next camp the last week in August at the Super Rink :)

Thanks again- you have a wonderful program for the kids.

  • Jami

Please thank all the coaches in this Intro session. Our son really enjoyed the program. Great idea teaching skills while playing games. We need to give kids a fun first experience on the ice. Nice Work!

  • Jon

 I have been extremely impressed with the way that  you run this program. It is clear that a lot of thought went in to planning a program that emphasizes the most important thing for kids of this age, that they have fun on the ice. While there is no doubt that hockey skills are developed as well, developing a passion for an activity in a four year old is truly a remarkable skill. My son looks forward to hockey every Saturday morning all week and enjoys himself immensely while he is there. We will certainly sign him up for the program again. Thanks again.

  • Mike

The thanks go to all of you for your time and energy. Thank you so much for all your work, our daughter, Cassie, had a great time out there with you all.

Thanks,

  • Karyn & Chris

Thank you guys for a great session. I know that Torin learned a lot in an environment with a great group of coaches.

  • Jennifer
