You and your team were phenomenal in promoting a fun, interactive and encouraging atmosphere for these girls to learn. I can only speak for my daughter and pass on her enthusiasm, experience and great memories she spoke of at the end of each and every day. You have not only opened her eyes to see the player she can be, but provided her with a new found love for the sport, a desire to be the best she can be (on and off the ice) and a true role model to follow. Please pass along my sincere thanks to your dedicated Team Katie, but more importantly thank you. A player of stature could have easily stood back and just directed, but it was your personal interaction with the girls one on one that truly left a lasting impression.
I was totally amazed by your camp today. What an incredible team you have. Everyone helping the kids seemed like they really wanted to be there. They never missed a thing and their words of encouragement were simply astonishing. Seeing you, Katie, skating around and supporting your team and the kids was incredible to watch. It was really neat seeing you taking the time with the kids when you wanted them to improve on a skill, especially one on one. You can tell that you thoroughly enjoy what you do. Thank You for making this experience such an amazing one for our daughter.
I have been going to this camp for about 4 years, and have followed it wherever it goes! It's an awesome camp, and I have learned a lot. This past year I learned a lot about stick handling, and improved by backhand and my shot. The staff are alway very very nice, and helpful. I love this camp, and will hopefully be in it as lng as I can :)
I was thinking that I should say how great of an excperience your hockey school was, I learned a lot of how to improve my game. I arrived there, hopping to improve on my skating, epecially backwards, also to learn tips and techniques for game time. Well I definitely learned not just that, but more, which I am so happy about. It was really great that the drills improved, or even changed my technique, and it showed how important it is to do things right. There were so many good coaches, that if you did one thing wrong they corrected it right away. That's not something I'd get at my pratices in Geraldton or even in Schreiber. I have to admit I wrote all the things that I learned, ( for example, hockey stance!) and need work on in a book so I wouldn't forget, and could work on them during the year.
The thing that topped everything off, was the jersey, (that was something I definitely wasn't ecxpecting!!:). I couldn't thank you enough for it. I just couldn't believe it then, and I still can't now! It was something, I really appreciated, and always will. I guess to sum things up, is that I had a blast that week!! You run a great program, I had a lot of fun... Thank You! I hope to talk to you again, Emelie :)
Merci to you Katie and all your staff. You provided a great positive atmosphere on and off the ice for my daughter Cassandra. The professionalism and friendly smiles of you and your staff was a perfect recipe for a successful all girls hockey xmas camp.
I want to take the time to say thank-you for providing such a well run and informative camp. It is nice to see the structure and flow of the skill developement (on and off the ice). The girls are learnig and developing the basics without realizing it! The instuctors knowledge and ability to demonstate and explain with enthusiasum and involvement was amazing (Truely show the passion for hockey). My hats off to you and your instructors. This was one of the best camps I have seen. Great job
The flip shot Chantal learned at the last camp has proven to be a lethal weapon. She has used it to score some "highlight reel" goals.
