Our Online PLAYER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM is for Hockey Players who are Junior Age Eligibility or will be within the next few years and have a goal of Playing Junior, US College and/or Pro Hockey

Turn your Challenges, Fears and Set Backs into powerful success Stories

Shatter your fears, and setbacks that have stopped you 
from achieving your hockey dreams.

Alot of Hockey Players and Parents struggle, trying to navigate the process of making it to the next level.

Trying to figure out HOW to get onto a JR Team, what Team they should be trying out for, How to get noticed by Scouts or reaching their goal of getting into a US College… can be confusing, time consuming and frustrating when you don't know what steps to be taking.

You can miss out completely or just waste a ton of time, energy and MONEY - NOT because you lack the talent or the drive, because you don't understand the process.
After 2 decades of working alongside Coaches, GMs, Scouts, Colleges… and seeing WHAT it is they look for in the Players they select for their Teams (both in talent and in character) … we started showing Players and families the process and they started making those Teams and reaching their goals!
To date we are PROUD to have helped over 200 Hockey Players make it to 
JR, US College and Pro Hockey and we’d love to help YOU too!

Imaging what would happen if

  • You had someone who knows the process and has a proven track record of success, show you the steps
  • You were prepared for and maximized your opportunities when they presented themselves or when you strategically created them
  • ​You got the attention of next level COACHES AND SCOUTS, regardless of whether your Team was winning or not
  • ​You knew exactly WHAT to say when reaching out to and/or talking to a Coach
  • ​You had a place where you could bring your problems/challenges around reaching your goals (because YOU WILL FACE LOTS, we ALL do) and get the encouragement, clarity and support that you need to walk through them
  • ​You developed an unbreakable mindset, trust and confidence in yourself so you see opportunities before they happen and meet them head on when they do
  • ​You had access to incredible tools that are built to help you to formulate a plan of action to reach your Hockey goals and STAND OUT as a dominant player, to the decision makers in the game
  • ​You could be in the same room as Pro players, JR Coaches, Scouts, GMs, prolific names and decision makers in the game.. Where you could ask them ANYTHING and stay connected with them
  • ​You were apart of a community of Players who all are all working toward the same things and are willing to work hard, support each other and learn from one anothers wins and losses…
In the PLAYER DEVELOPMENT Program you will get all this and so much MORE!

Some of the game's biggest names are NTC Hockey Alumni and we learned ALOT by watching their journey to success. We’ve taken what we learned, while Coaching and Leading them, to help other Players because SUCCESS ALWAYS LEAVES CLUES.
Some of our Alumni include :

If you are like most players, I bet you can relate to some of my story.

And if you are like many of the athletes I coach, you have the best of intentions with your game and honestly keep doing what you have always done, while expecting different results.

Listen, its not your fault, you have never been taught the habits, rituals + skills to building your mental resilience and success off and on the ice.  

You probably know that 1000’s of athletes make commitments to change their hockey outcomes each year,

And what you probably don’t know, almost all of them fail year after year, until they give up entirely.

And here’s the thing, their failure isn’t what you probably think.

It’s because they aren’t using the habits, rituals and skills to succeed.

THIS IS FOR YOU ➡ If you have ever been told

  • You’ll get your shot next year
  • ​Play at the lower level and we will call you up when we can
  • ​You are on the smaller size
  • ​Your hockey IQ needs to get better
  • ​You have slow feet
  • ​Sometimes life isn’t fair
  • ​Not everyone can get picked
  • ​Suck it up, not everyone can get on the ice
  • ​Do it for the name on the front, NOT the name on the back
  • ​Work on your skills and come try out again next year
  • ​I’ll come watch some of your games
You might be struggling with these same issues, the ones I shared in my story, or the same issues 1000’s of players do who commit to their game every year, only to miss the opportunities to reach their goals + dreams.

How much longer will you keep doing what you’ve been taught to do without it working for you?!

"This program gets players prepared for the next level, they get to learn a lot fromJunior coaches, Junior Guys, Pro's, from the NHL all the way down. It gets them the chance to learn from guys that have been through it themselves. The guest speakers is one of the best things I've come across...and they (the players) can learn as much as they can."

The Player Development program will help take you from Frustration, Overwhelm and trying to figure it all out on your own... to being shown the process of getting to the next level and having the tools and support to get you there

This Program is ONLY $77 usd/month and you can stay in it for as little or as long as you need to. It’s worth 3 times the investment but it is our goal to make this as affordable and accessible to any player that needs it and is willing to put in the work.
