“My son Tommy has been training for the past two years year round with Stop It. All of the hard work at the weekend sessions and the summer DNHL program have helped him maximize his goaltending abilities and he truly looks forward to going to the sessions because of the coaches and their interest in him as a young man and helping him improve. I just wanted to let both of you know that his NH Midget Major team just won the State Championship and he played great thanks to all of his work and support from the family at Stop It! Thanks for everything and keep up the good work.”

“I just wanted to send you a note and say Patrick has been working with Steve in Middleton every Sunday and he is absolutely terrific. Steve is obviously very knowledgeable and really knows how to transfer his expertise to other goalies. He also keeps Pat motivated, smiling, focused and looking forward to every session. As always thank you guys for all your help!”

“Evan loved everything about the camp. We will be back next year and I will be looking into some private lessons.”

“I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate you allowing my daughter Catherine to participate in the Women’s GCG Prospects Camp. She had an amazingly time, met some great girls (and great goalies), and received tremendous training. She has remained in contact with at least a half dozen of the girls and speaks to them often. What I really want to thank for is the impact you had on her attitude. She, all of a sudden recognizes the importance of stretching, drinking lots of water, and eating healthy food. She goes for runs, lifts weights, and does stretching in our swimming pool. I had hoped that a boarding camp would have a meaningful impact but I never expected the impact your camp had on her. I will be signing her up for more of your camps and hope she will have a spot in the GCG Camp again next summer. Thanks for having such a huge impact on my daughter!”

“We wanted to thank you. Jackson had a great experience and a lot of fun. Your goalie coaches were so enthusiastic and really got the kids moving!! It was fun to watch. So, thank you for inviting Jackson to participate.”
– Laurie

“Thank you for inviting me to your elite goaltending camp! I had a lot of fun, learned many new tools to use to improve my game, learned a lot from the coaching staff, and made improvements to my game all in the short week I was there. I hope to be able to come next year and also to train with Stop It as much as I can during the time I’m at prep school. Thanks again Coach Daccord.”
– Tristan

“I wanted to share with you that of all the camps that my daughter has attended over the last three years, she has never learned so much or felt so good about a camp. She articulated, in detail, every moment of this camp with us, everything sunk in deeply. The ice time, the lectures, the coaches, the off ice, all of it. Being the one of youngest at the camp, she felt that the coaching team created an environment of success at every level and that the girls bonded with one another in a very positive way. Having only three seasons of hockey behind her (we moved here from Santa Barbara where she was a AAA soccer goalie), she felt that she knew upon leaving the camp exactly what she needed to work on this season at the Ontario Hockey Academy for her freshman year. She wanted me to be sure to sign her up as soon as possible for the same camp next year. We are most definitely huge fans and supporters of SIG now. Please pass on to the coaching staff that we’ve never heard such positive, glowing, specific feedback from our daughter, and they should be very proud of the work they did last week and we were honored that our daughter was able to be a part of it.”

“I just had to tell you how happy Jordan was after his week with you at Merrimack, his only regret was he couldn’t stay for the rest of the summer. Thank you very much for teaching him such great lessons on and off the ice.”
– Debra

“Many thanks for organizing such a great camp! I observed Friday’s session on the ice and was very impressed by the quality of instruction as well as the accuracy of the shooters. Nick has worked very hard to improve his game and appreciates the help offered by Stop It instructors. He looks forward to additional opportunities for lessons and camp with Stop It.”
– Jim

“Thank you so much for the training this week. I had an amazing time and learned many new techniques to use for upcoming situations. I felt it was the best camp I have been to because all of the goalies are all almost equal in potential which really made me focus and work hard. Thanks so much again and I hope to see you again next summer or sooner!”
– Sam

“We just got back home last night from our two back to back weeks at camp. Morgan thoroughly enjoyed camp. He feels he has a much better understanding technical aspects of his job in net and a very clear idea of his strengths and specific areas for focused improvement. He has talked extensively about the academic approach to understanding the Goalie position that your camp, and the reference book have offered him. Thank you for inviting us to return this summer. Also a very special thank you for your kind and encouraging words to Morgan as we were leaving. Morgan loves to have a mentoring role and he enjoys being given opportunities for leadership. It was much appreciated by him that you noticed and commented on this aspect of his camp participation. I noticed how very thrilled he was when you did this. Dr. Jean Clinton, a Psychiatrist, a well published Author and Consultant to the Ministry of Education for the Province of Ontario, has emphasized the importance and value of this type of positive comment from role models, as our children often remember it forever and it can truly influence who they choose to be. Morgan continues to grow as a Goalie, both on and off the ice. He remains passionate about Goaltending. I believe the camp experiences that you have provided both this summer and last, have been invaluable to him in all areas of his growth and development.”

“I want to thank you and all of your staff for making camp a wonderful and valuable experience for Allison. As you know, making a trip back east for camp can weigh heavy on the wallet. However, we left feeling that this experience was a worthwhile investment. In fact, this camp was the best experience we have ever had at camp and is unmatched by anything out west!!! Each of your staff was professional, highly experienced, and they worked very hard to make camp fun for the kids. I can say from Allison’s feedback, FUN was the word of the day: every day! She absolutely loved this camp. Allison left with many things to work on this year and she is highly motivated to work on them throughout the coming weeks and months. It is our hope to return again next year! Please let your staff know how much we enjoyed and appreciated this experience.”
– Eileen

“I emailed Kathy too! I must say I loved the ease of use of the website for registering and the instantaneous emails with confirmations that let me know everything was fine. Simple and excellent. I have three sons and register for a lot of programs and no one has it figured out as well as you do.”
