Re: Private Lessons

Hey Rick,  Quick thanks.

Firstly, Lev had an incredible tournament this past weekend at the Montreal Meltdown. His skating has improved substantially over the past few months. The private work that you have done with him has really taken his game to the next level. The intense focus on his skating over the past few months has made a world of difference. He is demonstrably stronger on his feet and his balance and agility have never been more evident. He used this improved skillset to capture MVP of the finals and placed 2nd overall in scoring for the entire tournament. He also did a lot of little things that never show up on a scoresheet. He played with a confidence level that I have never seen before.

Second, ever since you brought out the jump rope, Lev has been obsessed. That day, he made me shorten a rope we had at home and he’s been practicing ever since. He brought it to Montreal and was warming up with it. Every kid wanted to try, and some even went out to the Walmart to buy their own ropes. Last night in the basement he did 40 in a row before he stopped when he ran out of gas.

You’ve done a really amazing job with him. Thanks a ton.

"My son thoroughly enjoyed this camp!  As a goalie he got so much out of his days!  He was constantly being challenged by players of different skill levels!  There was an incredible amount of ice time, a range of skill development activities for all players, dryland training and of course fun!  In addition, my son felt that one of the highlights of the camp was having the chance to meet, train, and play with players from Mexico!  The staff treated the players with respect and they continuously offered encouragement and positive direction for the players improvement.  My son will be attending for both weeks this summer!  Thank you NTR for this unique and memorable opportunity!!"

Thanks so much!!

My son has been going to NTR regularly over the past 3 years. Over that time, his development as a hockey player, especially his skating and stick handling, has been meteoric. The private lessons my son receives at NTR are the key to his development as a hockey player. His improvement has fueled a passion for hockey and has made him more confident in all aspects of life. THANK YOU NTR!

I thought I would pass along an unsolicited testimonial on your hockey programs and their high quality. This will be the 3rd summer that have our son Emmanuel in your 3 on 3 Pond Hockey League and are excited about the start of the season next week. We believe that this program is top rate and look forward to it every summer. Emmanuel has also been enrolled in the past 2 Tuesday night Power Skating session and are extremely pleased about the quality of the programs, the instructors and the improvement we have seen in Emmanuel’s hockey skills over the course of the past year.
Thank you!

Rick and the team at NTR My son was trying out for the select team for Tyke- our first experience with hockey try outs. He loves the game but needed a little "boost" we felt to make the team. I am so glad we came to NTR! You were able to work him in quickly for a couple of private lessons. Your rink was busy with other kids dedicated to improving their skills. It was a really positive environment and certainly motivating. Our son was coached by Kody on puck control, stick handling drills, and shooting. Kody worked to the right level and my son loved the time spent with Kody. He came away pumped and he made the team! A big thank you to Kody. He knew just what to focus on and made a difference quickly.
