"My son has been attending the D2D Fall and Winter morning skates for the past five years. Over
this time, I have witnessed Bryan pull from his professional playing experience to create a
hockey development program that is first class. The range of drills Bryan utilizes has allowed my
son to exponentially improve his skating ability, confidence recovering pucks and overall
understanding of the game. I credit Bryan and his D2D program
with developing my son into askilled, well-rounded defenseman.
The skills that Bryan provides in this program benefit all players and I would strongly encourage
defense and forwards alike to take advantage of this incredible local resource."
"As the winter morning program was wrapping up, my son has shared with us how much he felt this program has enhanced his skills as well as his confidence. He truly enjoyed attending each session and came away with a smile each and every time. I want to thank Bryan and Chris for their time and dedication to the kids development,
it truly is inspiring.
My son is looking forward to attending more D2D programs in the near future!"
"My son has a passion for hockey. Bryan Rodney has a passion for teaching. D2D hockey has been instrumental in giving my son a solid defence skating foundation, allowing him to play high level competitive hockey. Bryan and Chris at D2D Hockey have taught and strengthened the fundamentals of skating to my son. The attention to detail is impressive. My son is encouraged and pushed to be his best. Highly recommended."
"We feel very lucky our boys were able to participate in D2D hockey over the years. Bryan and Chris have trained them to be great defence men on the ice. Both boys jumped multiple levels in hockey, due to their invaluable instruction on and off the ice. However, it’s the intangible things that have really been the surprise.
Bryan and Chris Rodney are so hardworking, respectful, and grounded. The real value for us has been the development of our boys into young men, having such great role models."
“This summer my son made a commitment to work everyday to improve his hockey skills. He is very passionate about the game and with a little guidance he followed through with those commitments. He's made huge improvements in every aspect of the game this year, especially with his mentality. The biggest jump in improvement I saw was through your 10 week summer program. He had always been a little scrambled chasing pucks into corners and making a strong outlet pass. Often he would hesitate and simply throw the puck up the boards rather than look at his options and control possession. The drills you had him execute made him more comfortable with trying different evasive routes, pressing offensively or holding that puck a little longer to make the right pass. He has always loved the position of defence and now he's finally been playing with the confidence only PROPER practice can instill. Thank you for putting on a great camp this summer Bryan and I hope for success with D2D.”
“I just wanted to thank Bryan and his staff for the excellent program my daughter just finished. It's awesome to see defence specific training. We've seen great improvement in on ice skill and confidence through the position specific drills and techniques that she has learned. My daughter learned new skills, worked hard and had lots of fun while doing it.
It's a great testament to the quality of the program. It's her favourite camp by far!
Can't wait to be part of the D2D experience again in the near future!”
