Peter Hay will not only guide you through the proper development path for your hockey career but they will also build the best person as they intentionally concentrate on each player's character development. Although we want players to continue to claw for the next level we feel that it is in the best interest of players to play at a level that will best develop them. We would rather have a player playing Major Midget as a first liner rather than sitting on the bench of a Junior team. At the younger ages players need ice time and opportunities to develop properly. Lastly, we believe it's very important to play multiple sports and learn how to be an athlete. Players should not become sports specific until they are at least 15 years old. Peter will work with all clients at all ages and counsel each family to pick the best development plan for their unique needs to be the best person and player that they can be to reach their highest level or goal as an athlete.
