• Part of every summer for my two boys is a couple of weeks at Hockey Fundamentals Camp at Ted Reeve Arena.  They truly enjoy the hockey but also the outdoor activities that are part of camp. They have formed great friendships with the staff and other campers over the years. My boys started at age 4 and I always feel they are not only learning hockey skills, but just as importantly are safe and having fun.

  • I chose Hockey Fundamentals in part because of Mike’s background as a TDSB school principal and I wasn’t disappointed. Mike provided the structured skill development my son and daughter needed, with the proper combination of pace, accountability, and positive reinforcement. We will be back!

  • As a father I feel very grateful for the Hockey Fundamentals program. I have witnessed my son’s confidence improve and his skills excel while making great friends. When I asked my son how camp was he replied, ‘it was the best day of my life.’  That says it all to me.

  • Hockey Fundamentals Camp has been a wonderful introduction to hockey for my young daughters. They have improved their skills greatly and at the same time they have had fun and made many new friends each week. My girls are much more confident players, and they have acquired a passion for the game. I can unreservedly recommend Hockey Fundamentals Camp.

  • My son has attended the Hockey Fundamentals camp for the past 3 summers. Each year I am always amazed at the progress of his play after just a week at camp. It is a well run organization with a knowledgeable and attentive staff. He loves all the ice time they get but also the opportunity to play other sports and make new friends.

  • My boys look forward to the Hockey Fundamentals Camp at Ted Reeves Arena every summer, they have been going consistently for the past 4 summers. It is a great way to get back into hockey during the off season, their skills improve a lot during the week and there is a lot of variety in the activities they do. Their favorite parts of the camp are: “lots of ice time” and “very helpful counsellors”.

  • As a younger kid I love attending Hockey Fundamentals Camp as it was an opportunity to have a great time as well as compete and learn. I thoroughly enjoyed the hockey and numerous other sports we played each day. I have very fond memories and friendships from my time at camp. I look forward to being a role model as a staff member of the camp in the near future.
