Jeremy

So that’s me, Jeremy. I live in Ontario and love to play hockey. I have a full time job that I balance with playing sports (mostly hockey) and working on this site. I have played hockey since I could walk and hope to continue to play until I can not walk anymore! I am a forward and love to dangle and of course score goals.

Ken

This is Ken, he is my best friend and biggest rival on the ice (when we are playing against each other) Ken played some competitive hockey in Alberta and then moved to Ontario to go to college (where we met). Ken is a defensive specialist, has a rocket of a shot and a few nifty dangles as well. He will be adding most of the defensive articles to the site.

What is the Point of this Website?

The point of this website is to get some really solid hockey instruction, articles, drills and how to videos online. When I was growing up I never had the opportunity to just hop online and learn a new move. I was desperate to learn some good moves so I paid $100 for some stickhandling videos when I was 15 and just loved them; I watched them all the time. I realize that not every child, or parent has that type of money so I wanted to provide some great hockey tips for free. If there is anyone that you know that might want to learn about hockey please share this website with them, and if you want to learn more about hockey then just pop your email address in the box on the left and join us (if you haven’t already)

Now it is Your Turn

We have over 7000 people who follow this blog directly by email, and thousands more following on Youtube and Facebook. I would love to get your input on what you think of the site, and what you would like to see. So how about leaving a little message in the comment section below. I think your name, where you are from, what level you play, and what you would like to see more of on the site is a good start. I hope to hear from most of you, and don’t be afraid to share the site with your team mates!

Hi,
Jeremy and Ken.

This is more of a question. I play defense and I was hoping to get some tips. To help improve on my defense from Ken or Jeremy.
