He went on to play professional hockey for four years following his time at RIT. His experience as a player and coach helped him develop into an exceptional goalie instructor.

    Dear Player/Parent,

    The summer of 2023 is fast upon us and we realize that you have many choices to make when it comes to choosing a hockey school. At RIT and “The Tiger Hockey School,” we feel that our school is the premier hockey school in Western New York. Our head instructors are all highly qualified college coaches who have their reputations to uphold. As college coaches, we take our instruction seriously— we do not allow our groups to exceed more than 28 players and provide constant attention to our students both on and off the ice.

    This summer, we will be using the state-of-the-art turf field, Clark Gym, and the $25 million Student Life Center (recreation facility) for dry-land activities. These facilities allow us to offer activities such as basketball, soccer, and off-ice stick-handling. The kids at our school have fun and will be busy all day long!

    We recognize that in having choices, part of the decision making depends upon cost. We try to keep our price as low as possible. In saying that, we feel that we offer the best instruction along with the best price for a hockey school of our stature—that’s why the majority of our students are repeat customers.

    Please consider sending your son to the Tiger Hockey School this summer. You won’t be disappointed.  Our schools fill up quickly and we are usually sold out by May 31st, so please respond as soon as possible.
