Testimonials

Weezy is very passionate, knowledgeable and experienced. He loves to be challenged and sets high goals for each and every one of his players. I was so impressed with his attention to every detail of the skating and playing process. He worked with my son Jean-Paul’s breathing, skate sizing, balance, strength, power, mental approach, as well as skating technique. My son improved in every area and has become close friends with Weezy. He truly believes in my son and cares for him. I have recommended Weezy to many of the players I have coached the past two years and all have benefitted greatly.
— Coach John LaFontaine - Muskegon Lumberjacks / USHL
Thank you for working with Brendan over the last year. Both his skating and hockey knowledge have improved significantly. Your teaching methodology has improved both his balance and speed. As importantly, you have helped increase his love for the game of hockey.
— Mike McFadden
I cannot say enough for the commitment that Weezy puts into developing young athletes. It all starts with the details for proper skate fitting. We were unaware of how important it is to have exact sizing for skates. After consulting with Weezy, we were in a full size bigger than we needed. Needless to say, my son is now in a pair of skates that fit and also feel great! In the short amount of time with Weezy, we have seen more confidence in his skating ability. Now he is ready to continue the work to get faster and more efficient on the ice. Thank you Weezy, as my son sure enjoys working with you and your staff!
— Eric & Lynn Bordson
Over the years and our careers, we have been fortunate to train with some of the best coaches and instructors in the country. In that time, we have not come across another coach that has had a greater impact on our development than Bryan. My brother and I will continue to make our usual trip North to the Cities every summer until this ride is over. Thank you Weezy, you are the man!
— TJ & Tommy Hoffman
