Burlington, VT - Summer 2014My grandson attended the session on stick handling last week in South Burlington, Vermont. I can't say enough about what a great experience this was for him. He's attended other camps but this by far was the best. Excellent coaching. I particularly liked the one-on-one coaching style. Each coach took the time to stop and explain how something should be done if a player was doing something wrong or struggling to complete a drill. Coaches also demonstrated the technique, before having the skater try it again. So much more effective than simply feeding back areas that the person needs to work on a report card at the end of the week like other camps do. We saw a big improvement in our grandson's stick handling skills. A big thank you to Nick and the other coaches! I'll be sure to spread the word on what a great camp this is.
Kamloops, BC - Summer 2013
My son had a great time. He had a lot of fun and enjoyed it immensely. He likes to show me his moves and has been practicing. He was exhausted by the end of the week so he was working hard! Every instructor was GREAT! They all spoke very well with my son. Being only7, he takes a little more for it to sink in and the coaches were supportive, understanding and took the time with my son so that he got it. Sometimes it is easy to brush off the younger kids, but the Turcotte team took the time to explain it to him and make sure he got it. He is looking forward to using some of the moves in an upcoming camp. I will be telling other parents about the benefits of the camp for the next year! Thanks again!

It was great that Real was the lead instructor. He is great with the kids and has the patients of a saint. My son can't wait to implement the new stick handling moves. Thanks again!

Our two boys ages 6 & 8 have attended a bunch of hockey camps and clinics this summer but this was by far their favorite. The instructors were great with kids of all levels and really made it fun. We appreciated the parents meeting as well as the detailed report card. We only wish you can here more often!! Great Job!

New York - Summer 2013
I just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the Turcotte Hockey School stickhandling camp. Both of my sons truly enjoyed Turcotte's program, and we will be registering them for the advanced class in August. Coach Bobby D. and his crew are really special. I loved how they all took the time to TEACH each and every student by showing them how to perform the drills correctly.
Michigan - Summer 2012
I wanted to let you know how much my son, Dylan (age 11), benefited from the Turcotte clinic. Dylan attended the clinics in Troy and Traverse City, Michigan this past summer. He received excellent instruction, particularly from Mike Nodler. He and his team have started out very well this season, and it is clear to me how much he learned and has implemented from the Turcotte clinics. His confidence has grown and he is actually using stickhandling moves that he learned at the clinics to great success. Thanks so much for everything.
Windsor, ON - Summer 2012
We need to commend your camp for the amazing impact it has had on our three children. We have put them in a variety of hockey camps and clinics over the past 2 years, and they confidently concur your camp was the most beneficial! We see the increased stickhandling skills now on the ice in their new seasons. Your instructors were excellent, and the skills they acquired have brought many positive comments from both parents and coaches. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
Winnipeg, MB - Summer 2012
I would like to say that, as a parent it was an absolute pleasure to have my son in your camp. The coach to kid ratio was perfect and the interactions between coach to kid was done at their eye level. They were stern when they needed to be and fun and playful to lighten things up. My son absolutely loved this camp, he had a smile on this face the entire time. We have been to a few different camps over the years and this was our favorite. As a parent, I appreciated the parent meeting, so that we were kept in the loop and informed on why you do what you do. My son Sam is practicing his stickhandling moves in the garage and looking forward to next year. Thanks again for a positive, fun experience.
