Professional Hockey Training

Thank you for visiting my page and for your potential support in my journey. I am a budding professional hockey player in need of some significant financial help to aid in paying for the training necessary to make my dream a reality. I traveled to o Whitby, ON at the end of July 2014 to train with Jeff Roux and what I consider one of the top hockey training facilities in the world. The training and hockey knowledge that I recieved at Twist drastically helped improve.

Everyone has dreams and aspirations in life. There are 690 players currently in the NHL that all followed their dream of one day playing in the NHL. All of which, had to travel down their own path, and overcome their own obstacles to get to where they are today. This is my path. My journey. My dream. Just like them, I will make it to the NHL. I will make my dream a reality.

Twist Whitby

The donation money that I have recieved to date ($2,895 9/3/14) has been used to fund my training in the Washington DC area before I left for Canada, my time at Twist Whitby (food, travel, training, etc.), and some necessary hockey equipment (gloves, jock, socks, and hockey tape. I also have to attend as many open camps as possible over the next month to increase my chances of signing a professional hockey contract. As you can guess, this will be very expensive. Maybe even more so than Twist. Camp entry fee, travel, lodging, food, new equipment (my equipment is pretty beat up), training costs while in DC, and more. It's very expensive and that's why most people give up on their dream. I WILL NOT GIVE UP. 

My Financial Breakdown:
Hockey Equipment- $1700+
Hockey Training- $4[phone redacted]/summer
Nutrition (Food, Vitamins, Supplements)- $1200/summer
Lodging- $900/summer
