  • 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
  • Our son Sam (goalie) loved this camp last summer.  Beth 
  • Our son Evan had a great time last summer at the Wes Walz hockey school and would really like to do it again.      Mike
  • I just want to thank you again for all you do!  Tommy has been going to your camp for 6 years!!!!  When people ask me about the camp, they always seem to ask if you are there, and I giggle to myself & answer "when is he not there?"  I admit it, Tommy's first year I didn't know what to expect, especially pertaining to how much you'd be there. As I look back over the years, I'm just blown away, I can honestly say that every time Tommy has hit the ice at your camp, you have been on the ice each and every time too!  It's absolutely outstanding how much time you spend with these kids, getting to know them, teaching them!  You are an amazing mentor to all of them, Tommy adores you & we both thank you from the bottom of our hearts!  Thank you for an awesome week                        Kelly
