I have been truly blessed to have been given the chance to teach the best sport on earth to people willing and eager to learn it. The Core Skills Clinic is where my co-coach and best friend Matt and I teach adult skaters how to play the great game of hockey. We start our 20-week sessions with the basics and by the end of the session we're covering complex systems. It truly is a very special place. As I always tell our players, I always leave this place with a big, fat smile on my face.
The culmination of each season ends in the Hammersnow Cup game. I design custom jerseys for the teams and goalies as well as promotional materials to really make it something special.
Some of our skaters haven't had, and may never have the chance to play on the big stage for something that really means something to them. This is where the idea for the Hammersnow Cup game stemmed from. Coach Matt and I wanted to finish each session with something special. There are custom jerseys, refs, scorekeepers, announcers, medals, an MVP trophy, and the chance to get your name permanently engraved on the Legendary Hammersnow Cup of Eternal Glory.
