Working with Venla Hovi has been one of the best coaching experiences yet in my career. Her professional approach to training and preparing herself for competition was second none. Venla was willing to communicate and share how she felt at all times so we could best plan for the competition at hand. She also understood how to play in the long game, and that what she did now had an effect on the outcome we would get in both the short and short long term futures because she asked questions and used her experience as a professional athlete.
With Venla’s help, I have been able to take my game to the next level. She has an incredible amount of hockey knowledge and is passionate about sharing it with others. Venla has always created a constructive environment that facilitate success and motivates me to push past my limits!
Jordan is an exceptional player and teacher. She has great attention to detail and communicates those details very well to her students. Jordan’s knowledge of the game is second to none, and she does an excellent job conveying that knowledge in her drills and teaching points with students.
Jeff has an infectious ability to motivate his guys. Combine that with his ever growing knowledge for the game and strength training,you would be hard pressed to find a better trainer and person. I’m 33 now ,never felt better physically which has translated to the Ice as I’m a better player now then ever. I’m aging like fine wine. I am stronger, I’m more mobile and my overall awareness of health keeps growing and Jeff deserves a lot of the credit. Jeff is a selfless trainer who is passionate about other people’s success and I don’t know about you, but that’s the kind of person I want to be around!
Jeff is a very smart trainer who understands how to functionally train hockey players. As a former player, he understands the physical and mental tools that are required to succeed which helps him build incredible programs. I highly recommend training with him.
Jeff has not only had a positive impact on me as an athlete, but more importantly as a person. His attitude on a daily basis is one that I look up to and strive to have myself. His commitment, dedication, and passion for every individual he works with really shows how much he truly cares. I would recommend working with Jeff for anyone who not only wants a knowledgeable and experienced athletic coach, but also someone who can positively impact their lifestyle as a whole.
I’ve played with and against Greg for over 20 years and his puck handing and skating abilities still amaze me. Greg’s finesse and skill are on par with some of the best players in the NHL.
I played with Evan [Janny] for four years. He was one of the smartest players I have come across during my career. He seemed to always be in the right spot, positionally, and knew where everyone else was supposed to be at any given moment.
As an Intern with us at Northeast Psych, Brooke has consistently shown a keen understanding of the balance between performance and wellness. Not only that, she cares. Cares for her teammates, the game, and helping others.
Brooke is driven to show up and perform her best no matter what role she is in, and she is gifted with patience and warmth when connecting with and teaching others. Her knowledge and experiences are huge assets for any goaltender looking to improve his or her game.
I had the pleasure of coaching Allie last season with the Connecticut Whale. Allie is a natural leader and her shot, stick handling and ability to see the ice are next level. But what really stood out about Allie was her passion and knowledge for the game!
