Testimonial

“Our kiddos in u14 and u16 tried out Mel’s camp for the first time recently and absolutely loved it. They learned more in the 2 hours a day for 3 days than they had learned in other full week camps. They both noted an increase in skills, knowledge and understanding. As well as, they really appreciated the positive correction and reinforcement used by all staff. We would highly recommend Mel’s camps and cannot wait to sign up for the next one.”
Mel is an excellent skating technician and teacher. Her sheer joy of teaching and passion for, and connection with, the athletes she works with is unmatched in my experience with power skating providers. Our players are so focused, and eager to learn and grow, with Mel’s targeted one-on-one feedback yielding immediate correction or improvement.
