Hi John, I just wanted to share with you that my son Eric has achieved his goal and made his competitive team. After getting cut the past two attempts, he is absolutely pumped to be a part of the team. Coaches mentioned the jump in his progress from last year, especially in his skating ability, and the only thing that changed was our our choice to attend your clinics. He had such a blast and appreciates his hard work and practice paying off. He is more driven then ever and is already asking to participate in your camp next summer. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication, it is making a difference! All the best, see you next summer.
