Being new to the game of hockey it is easy to get overwhelmed with all the wrong information and techniques that don’t help you get better. Since I started working with Neil not only have I got better but both of my sons and my wife have improved from his lessons. No one else gives you what you will receive when you train with Warehouse Athletes. The information that Neil provides is top notch and it works. From 6 years old to 36 all of us in our house are very happy with the results we are experiencing from Neil’s coaching. I not only am happy with what I have already learned but am excited to see what the future lessons will teach all of us. We will be long time students of Coach Neil and Warehouse Athletes.
Working with Coach Neil and Warehouse Athletes has been such a positive and transformative experience for our son as a hockey player! In just a few short sessions, you could see the tangible results as his skills and confidence on the ice grew. Coach Neil has a gift for working with young players and getting the best out of them through personalized lessons unique to each player. His calm and patient style helped to build a connection that was obvious during each session. Our son looks forward to each practice with Coach Neil!

In the few months we've been working with Coach Neil, I've seen Finley progress more than I thought possible in such a short period of time. Neil is fun, engaging, and great with kids. He knows how to motivate Finley to work his hardest, but always makes sure he comes off the ice with a smile on his face. The confidence that Fin has gained on the ice with his coach has also translated to school and making friends. Coach Neil has made sure that skating is the best part of Finley's week, and has helped him fall more in love with hockey.
Coach Neil has been working with my son since February 2019 and it’s been a wonderful experience. In 9 months Everett went from a four year old who desperately wanted to go fast to five year old who loves flying around the rink. He recognized muscle weakness in Everett’s left ankle and helped strengthen it with skating exercises so that my child didn’t even realize what he was doing. He makes hard work fun. We recommend him to everyone.
Working with Neil greatly improved our daughter Daria’s skating. She has better edge control and is skating a lot faster since we started lessons. I would recommend Neil to anyone who is looking to improve their skating abilities!
Hockey games are won and lost with goals, and being the player that proceeds this numbers on the scoreboard comes from a lethal shot. This program gives you the platform to create that. Being a hockey player, everyone wants to score more goals and this program has Brough that to my game more than ever before.
Personally, I really enjoyed the shooting program as a whole. The repetition really dialed in the minor tweaks that were needed for me to take my shot to the next level. The break down of my shooting video allowed me to take into consideration when shooting was really helpful because you never know what you’re doing wrong until someone tells you. The process working into the different shots was really helpful taking everything back to the basics was necessary to move forward in the program. Moving into the shots and working on shot mechanics before situational shots easier because you knew how to shoot before you put it info effect. The flexibility of the schedule from when I ripped my hands and my back was nice because it allowed for me to produce my best shots consistently. The transition from off ice to on ice was reassuring because my shot improved so much from the last time I touched the ice. Now after playing a couple games and racking up goals from just beating goalies with a shot is super nice as I put a lot into the program I got a lot in return. Through the program I ripped my hands, ripped my net and my garage but found my finish and I’ve never been happier. All in all, I really had a good time with this program and it has done wonders and I would make the same decision over and over again.
We are here to provide an easy to follow shooting program within our academy. We will diagnose your current shot and break it down to provide drills to help correct and bad habit as well as build good habits. Successful shooting is the foundation of good habits and building unconscious competence of the shot and being able to execute that skill under duress.
