As a hockey dad and coach, RMHS provides me, my family, and all our association's skaters an extraordinary opportunity. Year after year RMHS not only provides significant development and growth for the player but RMHS itself just keeps getting better. Wehn program models for others by expanding its own developmental capability you at some point must realize that this is were a player needs to be! We could do it with out RMHS!!!

I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you for a great week of 8U hockey. JP had a blast and said, "This was the best week ever". He learned so much from his skill development and creating leadership attributes that will be sure to serve him well in all of his future endeavors. We have never seen him so motivated to continue playing hockey. After two days of 6 hours of on and off-ice hockey lessons, he came home and created his obstacle course to stick handle through. We don't push it and let him lead his way, but he was inspired after this week. He even made all of the neighborhood children play a game of Army/Navy (imagine children running from fence to fence as he yells, "Army, Navy, and Hit the Deck"). So again, thank you for a great week of hockey and for developing our players on and off the ice! Megan Megan Cartwright MA-ECSE The Rise School of Denver Director of Education and Inclusion

Bryan, You've personally coached Blake. I have to say I've never disagreed with any evaluation from RMHS. We come from a Small market. There have been times through Blakes's playing career that he's had more knowledge than his coach about proper technique and the game itself. He's 13. That's unfortunate. I never played Hockey. I don't pretend to, either. I've never tried to coach my boy in the sport. I learned the sport by watching 5-year-olds play. I see my boy's passion for the sport, so I try to provide the best for him. Hockey is my favorite sport now. Blake has come a long way. Being from a small market, he definitely has bad habits. Some he's developed, and some he was taught. What he does have, however, is what can't be taught. He has the will. He has the desire. He spends more time at the rink in the offseason than any kid in town. He's hungry. He works. After your BLBS camp, we came home for Team Wyoming tryouts the following weekend. Blake made Team Wyoming and received an

Coach Smith's passion for hockey is contagious and the kids all love him. My son is no exception, as he has thoroughly enjoyed every RMHS camp he has attended. Highly Recommended!

" Bryan, I wanted to reach out to thank you for the program you put together. Bradley and I recently returned from Breckenridge and cannot say enough good things about the program. From the attention to detail by the coaches to the experience with the other children, the facility, and the overall program you guys assembled. Bradley had his first game upon returning and its clear his confidence on the ice, and in the game improved measurably. Not only is Bradley faster, more agile on the ice, his perspective of the game and play improved. I notice it and he notices it. While Florida to Breckenridge is a hike uphill, I can’t imagine we won’t be making the trip again next summer." Thanks to you and your crew for the work put into making it a success.

RMHS was a camp I always looked forward to in the summer. RMHS taught me a lot about the fundamentals of hockey that I still use in my game today. I would not be the player I am today without the help from the RMHS staff from back when I was young. They emphasize a learning environment that is conducive to both getting better and having fun.
