NHL Player Agent/Summit Hockey Academy Parent
“In my work I have been fortunate to enough to travel and watch developmental hockey programs all over the world. The highly successful programs all have a similar approach, they have patient well-prepared instructors who work on a progression method. This involves many hours of refining and adding skills. Wayne’s program allows young players to build a foundation so that they can continually improve. Nothing can replace substantial time spent practicing in a competitive but supportive environment. There is not enough ice time in community and quadrant hockey these days to acquire many of the skills necessary to make noticeable improvement in a player’s development. No matter what your position, the Summit Academy program will provide the environment a committed player needs to improve.”JP Barry
