My Son did the Battle Camp in Anchorage, Alaska, July 15th-19th. He had his Hockey Tryouts this past weekend and made the team he was hoping to be a part of. He wished he could thank the coaches from the Battle Camp because they taught him so many things he needed to learn in preparation for the tryouts. All the coaches were so professional & courteous. It was our first year participating in the camp & we will definitely do it next year :)
Hi Gale - I just wanted to write you a quick thank you for letting me help spread the word about the Pro Ambitions camp in Fairbanks this year. The camp was a great success and the players had a great time and really grew as skaters and hockey players. In just a couple years the pro ambitions camp has become THE camp to attend in Fairbanks, so much so that our local college hockey coaches had to cancel their clinic the following week because everyone was going to pro ambitions.
I would also like to say that I would be glad to help spread the word again this winter. Just keep me in mind and we'll make sure next years camp is maxed out as well. Thanks,
Thank you, your husband, and your entire staff for the amazing experience you provide.
I once emailed Jeff to say how astounded I was at the personal care you put into your parent relationships. This MASSIVE company feels Like the rink down the road. Having grown up in a sleepy New England town and now living in NYC, I can't tell you how much I appreciate the enormous amount of time and effort you put into ProAmbitions.
That, along with the quality instruction, is a key to your success. I have heard parents in 3 states recommend your camps.
Thank you again.
Just wanted to tell you what a great time my 8 y/o son had at your camps this summer. This is my sons second summer attending your camps and he absolutely loves them. You guys work him harder than any other camp he attends (in fact so much so we've realized one of them is a waste of his time) and he walks out with a better sense of the game, not just on the ice but off the ice as well. He's becoming conscious of the importance of conditioning and nutrition (asked if we could take the stairs today instead of the elevator) and that's all attributed to your great coaching and staff. Your coaches are incredibly helpful and friendly and your evaluation system is comprehensive and insightful. Furthermore, as a service member and veteran I truly appreciate the fact that you give discounts to members of the armed services. We look forward to him participating in your camp for years to come.
I just have to tell you that your battle camp at Superior on Long Island this week was fantastic. My son loves it so much and they have him working so hard. Kevin as well as all the other guys did a great job. It was ten times better then i could have imagined. i was fortunate enough to watch my son every day at your camp and it exceeded my expectations. Your guys are the best and i will definitely tell everyone how good it was and my boy Ricky will be back next year. Im actually upset that its ending. You cant put a price tag on Hockey instruction such as this. If you or your staff are ever in Long Island again please let me know. I would love to use your staff for a shooting stickhandling clinic. Once again your the best and thanks
I had my son, attend the Pro Ambitions camp in the Westchester Skating Academy last week.
Even better, I happened to be off that week so I was able to hang around to see what was going on. Have to say that it was one of the best camps I've ever had Dana in.
Mike Hoffman ran a tight ship: the station circuits were run on time to the minute, he kept the guys moving all the time, and of course he got the conditioning in. I also liked the attention and teaching given to checking.
And the competitive "battlecamp" nature was great. What I liked the best is that the drills incorporated many hockey skills in each.
Also, as a football coach, I liked what Mike setup as a "gauntlet": the guys could skate either way, and the "defender" had to match them and meet them in the "hole".
Overall, I loved the camp and have recommended it to everyone in our hockey community since.
Only regrets being we didn't do the Haverhill camp. (Couldn't do it back2back at this time). We will look out for that next year.
Thanks to you, and please thank Mike again for me.
Until next time
