Positive Results: Read What People are Saying

“My wife and I just reviewed all of the reports [our son] JP received today and we are just thrilled with the results of all his hard work. I had a conversation with a hockey coach and he asked me all about the [Competitive Edge] program. I found myself going on and on. In my heart of hearts I know this is the best program going for hockey, skating, nutrition, mental toughness and life after hockey. Keep it going, you are doing a great job for all of the kids in your program. We are lucky to have you!”
