“Quantum Speed™ has changed the way that coaches and teammates view me... I feel that this camp is one reason that I got drafted. Originally I had slow feet, after two or three years in this camp it has brought me to a higher level. The instructors are great.

Scott Allan, University of Alaska Anchorage Seawolves
"As a Coach and Scout in the OHL I have spent several years coaching at the development level with power skating, skills, team play etc and I have to say this is the best program I have ever had my son participate in. He has improved immensely and is a more confident skater today. He is stronger on the puck and gets from point A to B with minimal effort and strides. Keep it up look forward to registering him again next summer"

The class size was good & quality of instruction is fantastic.
I feel that I have become a stronger player and I have learned a better technique for skating. My skating speed compared to the end of season has dramatically increased.
I thought it was awesome!
The instructors are committed to the development of the player and the person. The structure and repetition of drills helped our son with “muscle memory” and I have witnessed improvement already in his stride, his speed and his starts.
The three weeks were tiring, but awesome, and it really helps!
My son really seemed to take a lot from the seminars.
It was awesome!
It was very fun, learned a lot more little things to make me faster.
The experience was fun and the 2 things I will bring back with me is the “knee drive” and the “toe flick”.
Great Camp! Improved more every session!
Unbelievable! Will be back next year for sure! Thanks Blaze.
Great program! Great on-ice & off-ice instruction that related to each other and transferred to making skating easier. I learned a lot!
I am in much better condition. I am much faster than the start of Quantum.
I very much enjoyed this camp. I found that my skating and overall confidence improved a lot!
Keep it fun!
I really appreciate you guys at this camp, you are a great help and have helped me improve tons! Thanks!
The experience was great, it improved my skating a lot in a variety of ways and gave me a lot of new techniques.
I like how it’s not the same old stuff you learn at the other camps. This one shows how it works and it’s different. Different is good!
Enjoyed the camp a lot, learned a lot. Benefitted greatly & had fun.
It has been fantastic. I wouldn’t change anything. Bren wants to come back for a 3rd summer to try the new skills with a puck. It is a great program. Any parent here says that every kid would benefit. The professionalism and attention to every player is fabulous.
This is Johnathon’s 4th time! Do we need to say more!
Jesse really enjoyed the camp. I have seen a huge improvement in his stride, stance and mobility this year. I watched the last skate at Quantum and was very impressed with the on ice drills, lots of progression and building, competitive situations that make it fun. Jesse’s game has improved immensely. We are 3 games into the regular season and he looks like a powerhouse out there. He has more speed and mobility and is stronger and I give a lot of credit to Quantum Speed™, Premier Conditioning and Jesse for his hardwork ethic. The newfound speed and strength is quickly building his confidence and scoring is happening too! (2 goals in his last game) Jesse will be contacting you with his plans for next year. He is interested in Q31 and wants to discuss the schedules, etc. Thanks to all of you!
My son had a great time at the classes this summer and is looking forward to returning next year.
Steffany’s talks were very valuable. The messages went beyond hockey & dealt with life and it’s great that the kids can hear these messages from someone other than their parents. They were good!
The change in dry land instructors was great as we focused more on the movement of the body and stretching instead of just constant repetitions on the same muscles.
Very fun and helpful! Gets better every year!
Fun week, thanks for your help. Matt & Danny ran a wicked dry land.
I love the instruction. Great science reasoning behind everything. If dry land was more challenging it would be better.
I liked the individual attention by the instructors to us.
Great camp, one of the best I have been to. I will definitely do it again.
This program really helped my starting speed.
I like the dry land, keep the instructors.
Feel like I have improved my skating over the 3 weeks.
I loved all the coaches and trainers on and off the ice so there was a lot of one on one and increased my skating a lot.
It was great! I feel more confident and stable on my skates as was as faster.
Loved it! Got along with all the instructors!
As I had broken my ankle, it gave me the confidence I needed to get back onto the ice, and it helped refresh my memory on the little things that were needed.
Keep up the good work!
Good Coaches! Reliable Program! Good Seminars!
It was great!
I enjoyed your camp lots and hope lots of other people did too!
It was fun, beneficial, hard and great!
To I have not found a negative. Douglas was in two camps back to back and found a challenge and not repetitive lessons in each week. My past experience with elite camps has been negative until now.
Appreciate the flexibility of rescheduling, as our son missed some sessions during Alberta Cup.
The concept & delivery – Focus on strategy for each week and final presentation was excellent! Really impressed.
I thought it was great, a noticed improvement in my child and in others I watched.
It is a long drive (2 hours) and it would be nice to have a weekend available – Friday to Monday.
We drove 1.5 hours each way to get here and home and to be honest, we would double that, if we had to, the program is terrific. I don’t think you have a problem filling these classes, so I would strongly emphasize when someone joins that he/she realize there is a huge commitment and effort. I believe parents need to be told this is not for the players who want to go out and go to hockey school, but rather the player who is willing to bust their butt and commit.
Would be nice to see the classroom stuff in a room large enough and private so everyone could hear better.
Quantum Speed™ has greatly improved my skating and helped take my game to the next level.
It was very helpful for me and I also would like to see how I stack up for my speed back in league play.
Thanks for letting me participate in this week’s Quantum Speed™.
Thanks for making me become a better skater.
Instructors helped out a lot. Good Seminars!
Both coaches were very good at explaining the skills and breaking them down into fun and learnable drills. By the end of this camp I felt more solid on my skates and a whole lot faster.
All is handled in a well organized means. The instructors are proficient and the time on the ice well utilized.
We enjoyed the experience. Coaching staff seemed to be very knowledgeable.
Both of my sons found Quantum helpful, which is why we will be back next year.
Great camp – maybe it could be 5 days? Could it be for Novice-Atom age?
We’ve been to several different skating camps. This is by far the best. Great individual attention.
Excellent program! Very professional!
I’m glad you offered this at a PeeWee level because I feel it is easier to learn and correct at a younger level ( if the player is open to it and wants to learn). Great camp, wish it was closer to home. Good Job!
Very well run, extremely knowledgeable instructors, kids had fun and learned something.
My son really enjoyed the instructors. They were always there to answer his questions.
We like the program – the 4 days, 3x’s over the summer. We see results, my son likes the instructors.
Excellent camp. Very accommodating. Positive & professional staff, correcting of mistakes and one on one when necessary.
Covering everything from technique to speed was exemplary. Included in that would be the seminars given on the mental aspect and nutrition.
Continue to evolve the program but stick to your core values and fundamentals.
We were very impressed with how he was included even during the week when he was on crutches. Also the help with his ankle rehab is greatly appreciated.
Very organized, qualified instructors my kids have been doing the power skating for years and now doing Q3 and it has been great because you can see the difference when they go to practice and games they are better.
My skating and stride improved a lot! I am very happy with my results. I look forward to next year!
Very enjoyable program & quite helpful!
Your jerseys and t-shirts are awesome. Stride homework technique training exercise would be good.
We had our first session with Brittney this morning. Please pass on our thanks again for supporting our kids with the 1.5 hr sessions. The session was fantastic as I knew it would be, and I look forward to seeing the improvement throughout the year.
- Darin Bader Sherwood Park Jets 'AA'
Thank you so very much for the wonderful power skating sessions. Matthew learned so much, and thoroughly enjoyed it. His skating is definitely more powerful,l and his speed has improved quite significantly. He is so much more aware of his stride, and focuses on the tips your lessons provided for him. Your instructors were all incredible, including yourself, and made such a great effort to offer a lot of one-on-one with each participant. Your professionalism was excellent, and that’s what made it very special.
Thank so much....Marcus's skating in tryouts was absolutely incredible..He will continue doing his skating with Quantum.
Wesley is trying out for Fort McMurray AA Midget team. Last night he said after wards.. man that camp helped with my foot work!
He said a few times the puck got caught by his feet and he was able to pull it out and get moving due to things you
all taught! I also had people ask me "did Wes do a camp and where?" because they all noticed the drastic change in his skating!
AND he scored 2 goals..
So here is hoping for tonight!! I believe in giving credit where credit is due and man it is due!!
Be blessed all you leaders in all you do all year round!!
Thank so much....Marcus's skating in tryouts was absolutely incredible..He will continue doing his skating with Quantum!
Best power skating coaches ever!
I just wanted to say thanks SO much for being ago supportive of Josh last week in particular. He had
a great week and came away feeling really positive about himself. And he's
promoting Quantum Speed™, wearing his hat with great pride! Thank you for being so wonderful to my kids - and everyone else who comes across your path!! You really are the best!
I would like to take a few minutes to thank you cordially for the Peewee camp that my son has been allowed to participate in this
week. He enjoyed it a lot and told me it was the best and most fun power skating course he has taken so far. Obviously, the merit for this
is all yours! Amongst the ever increasing number of camps and courses I think yours stands out and it has a lot to do with the philosophy and attitude behind the program, which explains to the kids why they are there and what they will get in terms of benefit.
On the way home tonight I asked him if he thought he might do Quantum again after this week is over (I did not want to make him so I asked gently). His response was "can I?...will you drive me again mom?" I still need a lot of work" . So THANK YOU so much for being patient with him. I noticed a change in his skating at the 3 on 3. Seemed more efficient and effective. Drove hard to the net and scored some goals and made quite a few assists today as well! Again thank you for being such a professional organization. Well done! Looking forward to more Quantum!
Thanks to you guys they are having the Time of their lives!
