Testimonials for Rebecca Johnston

Testimonial for: REBECCA JOHNSTON

Rebecca was a key player in my adaptation to the woman’s game. Her skill set from edge work and pivots to full ice explosiveness as well as puck handling skills were elite and comparable to any hockey player. Her hockey IQ sets her apart and gives her an edge in game situations. I believe she has the people skills and assets to teach and instruct players of all ages.
