WHAT MAKES THE PROGRAM UNIQUE?
The "H" Puck
The “H” Puck is a custom made heavy puck made of steel that is specially designed by Coach Greg.
This picture is of the original stainless steel “H” Puck that Greg has had for over 45 years. Coach Greg grinds and polishes every puck himself to ensure the ‘feel’ is just right for his program.
The “H” Puck, the supporting videos and the custom designed homework booklets are what makes this program so unique! The program allows our players to set themselves apart from the competition with The True Hockey Program.
These key differentiators are for the hockey player! They are 100% focused on hockey and will make them better players!
The program is appropriate for all age and skill levels. My clientele includes female & male players from Recreational, all AAA Rep Levels, Major Bantam, Major Midget, Major Junior, NHL and all levels in-between.
I am more than happy to provide references from satisfied customers.
The Art of Shooting 7 and 10-week player programs include the “H” Puck as part of the program.

Greg’s coaching philosophy is built around the belief that ‘Everybody is full of potential…so why not bring the best of this out!”
By continually challenging the player’s skill level, self confidence and self esteem are naturally heightened, translating into player and team success.
