Maskin Hockey Development
Founded by former professional player, Steve McSwain, Maskin Hockey Development is a Toronto based hockey development company. Maskin was built and fueled by the passion that Steve has for the game, as well as his desire to assist other hard woking, passionate hockey players achieve their goals. It is Maskin’s mission to help players of all ages and abilities to develop and improve upon their current skills so that they may become stronger, more confident players.
It is our mission, here at Maskin Hockey Development, to ensure that all players reach their potential, while having fun. As Tim Notke said, “Hard work beats talent, when talent does not work hard!” We believe it is what players do outside of their regular scheduled practices and games that truly makes them stand above the rest!
Our coaches have extensive and accomplished hockey backgrounds. They know that if you’re not willing to put in the extra time and effort to gain an edge on the competition, you will be left behind. Maskin promises to provide each player an opportunity to improve their game through positive coaching, within a supportive learning environment.
