  • He is having a blast this week!  Exhausted but a blast! RK Lakeville 
  • Ben did 3-4 years of the Walz camp and number one he always enjoyed it and looked forward to it. Wes and staff were always top notch     - Lakeville

  • "Thank you" to the outstanding team of coaches and everyone who was at the Lakeville campus this summer. Our son had a great time and came away smiling every day. All the best,  PH

  • 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.      A hockey mom

  • I just wanted to say what an amazing experience this has been for my boys, especially my youngest. The first day he was just so nervous.  That afternoon he told me all about his day and how much fun he had!  and my older son told me that he has learned so much and is improving with his speed, which he has been working on for years.
    So I just wanted to thank you for doing such a wonderful job putting this camp together!
    Thanks again! KM Lakeville
  • Our son Evan had a great time last summer at the Wes Walz hockey school and would really like to do it again.      Mike
