"Mark and Crosby have been a big part of my career to date. Their ability to connect with young players on a personal and professional level is what sets them apart from others. From on ice skills to off ice training, the two of them combine to offer a program that not only develops your game but ultimately instills the values to help shape a young players' career"
Henrik and Johanna Sedin (Vancouver Canuck Captain)
"We feel fortunate for our son Harry to have had a wonderful experience skating with Michelle. She helped inspire not only a love of skating but also learning, and has given Harry the determination to continue in sports. Her approach is organized and positive. I would highly recommend Michelle as a skating coach for anyone wanting to excel and develop at any level of sport."
