I started playing hockey as an absolute beginner adult. I feel so fortunate to have found Kay's clinics at the start of my hockey journey, as she is a uniquely skilled, compassionate, and patient teacher. I do not believe I would have developed the confidence needed to continue playing hockey without Kay's guidance. She teaches fundamentals in an easily understandable way and presents new challenges in each lesson. She meets each player where they are now and gives them individualized support to help them realize their full potential. Kay has decades of experience in a variety of hockey settings that adds real value to each of her lessons. Every lesson I have attended with Kay has been helpful, challenging, but most of all, fun. Kay makes hockey accessible for everyone, creating lessons that teach important skills to all players from absolute beginners to life-long hockey players.
After years of watching my daughters play hockey, I decided I wanted to play too. Through Kay’s clinics, I became a much stronger skater, while also learning all of the components of playing hockey, including positioning, stick handling and shooting.
Participating in the skills clinic provided a unique opportunity for me to pursue learning a sport that I had dreamed about for years. As a beginner, the fun and supportive environment was instrumental in building my confidence. We were able to focus on a variety of skills such as skating, stick handling, passing, shooting, and game strategy over the course of several weeks. Kay provided helpful feedback during drills and worked with us one-on-one until we comfortably demonstrated the new skill. The encouragement provided by Kay and fellow clinic participants really created a welcoming environment for players of all skill levels. Whether you're a beginner or more advanced player, you will learn something new each week. The skills clinic was often the best part of my week, and her positive coaching style helped me improve my confidence and hockey skills tremendously.
I have enjoyed attending Kay’s women’s hockey clinics since I first came to hockey about seven years ago. Every fall, I am excited to return to the clinic to learn more! I appreciate Kay’s professionalism, her positive attitude and her teaching style. Kay’s ability to lead the group while providing everyone with individual attention is astonishing. She communicates clearly and makes it fun. Her love for the sport and teaching shine through her instruction, which inspires me to feel comfortable to learn and grow in my skills. I highly recommend Kay’s hockey instruction, especially for beginners like me!
Kay's clinic really revs up your skills. I became a smarter, faster hockey player under her coaching, and because of that, a greater asset to my team.
