  • He is having a blast this week!  Exhausted but a blast!   RK Lakeville 

  • I want to thank you for the great camp in St. Louis Park. My son was extremely lucky to have a legendary coach and great mentor helping him improve his hockey skills and better understand hockey spirit.  He had lots of fun and will continue to play hockey in the future. As a parent, I deeply appreciate the time and effort you have devoted to the kids as a role model and game-changer of their lives and probably future hockey career.

  • Both of my sons attended the Woodbury U12 camp for the last two years; they loved the camp and the instruction they received.  We saw a definite improvement in both skills and confidence on the ice.  Having a former NHL player and guest NHL player discuss and answer questions about hockey preparation, training, nutrition,  and the benefits of playing other sports, was very useful for the kids.  We plan to make the trip from Maryland again to attend the U14 and U12 camp again.               Thanks,  Steve

  • My son attended his second WWHS session  (Woodbury and Blaine). He has the most amazing time at camp and comes home tired, smelly, hungry, and more passionate about hockey after each day of camp!  My son has a lot of unique challenges...a seizure disorder, partial paralysis on his left side, and learning disabilities. He loves your camp as he can just be a normal hockey kid. The coaches are all so encouraging, positive, pushing each kid to be their best, and are role models on the ice. Thank you to the whole team for giving us a few weeks this summer to feel normal with everything going on in the world and in our personal lives. 
    Thank you, Parents, to “the truck”
