“We cannot recommend Rob Day and Puck Stoppers enough. When my son, Michael, moved from Washington DC to attend Phillips Exeter Academy, he did not have a goalie coach to work with him in New England. He had been working with the same coach in our area since he started playing hockey, so we were also concerned about having consistent teaching by his new coach. We asked around and received numerous recommendations for Rob, and so we decided to have Michael work with him. We could not have been happier. Rob took the time to figure out Michael’s style of play and strengths and weaknesses. He consulted with our local coach and made sure that they were both on the same page as far as instruction. The transition to Rob was absolutely seamless, and Michael continued to progress under his steady guidance."
In addition to being a superb and easy to work with goalie coach, Rob also developed a real mentor relationship with Michael. Rob worked with Michael on the “mental” side of the game and provided invaluable guidance as to how Michael should approach his hockey development. We are not a traditional “hockey family,” so we really valued Rob’s insights and wisdom. Michael subsequently was invited to try out for, and was selected to play for, the USA Hockey National Team Development Program. Although many coaches and mentors over the years obviously helped to contribute to Michael’s success in being selected for that Program, there is no doubt in our minds that Michael would not have that opportunity now but for Rob’s teaching and guidance. If you have any questions about Rob or Puck Stoppers, please feel free to reach out to us.”
