ML Hockey was recommended to us by a friend who’s son was enrolled in some sessions. Once our sons, ages 7 and 9, began the training, we noticed a big difference in their performance, both in skill and confidence. Maurice’s playfulness yet thoughtful constructive feedback have our boys feeling connected and motivated to improve themselves in the game. They always look forward to their sessions and are excited to participate in some summer camps this year. We are very grateful to Maurice and his team for all they do to make training challenging and fun!

From beginners to pro’s Maurice and his staff are first rate instructors with a passion for developing each player to the next level. We would recommend him to all players that want to elevate and excel.

“I have two boys 8 and 10, both currently playing rep hockey. Both of my boys have attended several of ML Hockey’s training sessions in the past – both for the regular weekly skates, as well as holiday camps.
In my opinion, Maurice runs a highly effective program that is at the same time both fun and engaging for the kids.
- Maurice makes every kid feel special. He does this, by really getting to know EVERY single kid. In addition to learning their name and greeting every player with a smile, he also takes a genuine interest who they play for, what position they are, how they are doing during the season; he will even come out to watch them play on his own time. During training sessions, Maurice’s hockey training is not just suited to older more skilled players, but is also excellent for younger kids that are just learning the game. He makes every kids feel comfortable and gives them the right kind of encouragement for their temperament. He will then cater the training and the breakout session groups to put kids together that are of the same character and skill level.
- There is no shortage of attention for each child; every ML Hockey session that I have attended had several other on-ice assistant trainers with high skill (i.e. Jr A players).
- ML Hockey has a good mix of training and fun. Each session begins with skating fundamentals and edge work. Later there are several stations setup to focus on a particular skill; groups rotate through to each station.”

“Our son has GREATLY improved his skating and hockey skills since starting ML Hockey a year ago. Maurice and his team are dedicated instructors that show a lot of care. Our son enjoys the camps so much that he was willing to pass up on a vacation to Florida instead of missing his hockey camp. We highly recommend ML Hockey!”
Maurice has a deep passion and love for the game, that really inspires the kids at his camps. My son started with Maurice as a TYKE and he will continue indefinitely with ML Hockey, regardless of what level REP hockey he plays at. Maurice has consistently shown an uncanny ability to reach my son and help him tap skills he does not yet realize he has. There is no shortage of camps and training for a parent to throw money at. But my acid test in committing funds to Maurice’s programs is that I often find Maurice in the stands at my sons games watching his progress; or I find him discussing points with my son after the game.
I never expected that level of commitment from Maurice, but it nonetheless is greatly appreciated.
