My fella is talented (and likely squirming already as he reads this). Bryce and I are polar opposites in one big way. I am a bit of an open book, putting it all out there... my business, our life, our daughter, dog... the works. Bryce is WAY more private. But, it's my blog... so... I win. Don't get mad Bryce, just go with it.
He has been running hockey training camps for Campbell River youth now for a few years and I couldn't be more proud of how he runs his camps and how much effort and heart goes into them. He works so hard behind the scenes to make sure his kids in the power skating and elite hockey camps are getting the very best of his knowledge and experience. His hockey camps are geared towards North Vancouver Island hockey players from Novice to Adults.
When he started his camps and training sessions a few years ago he had just two amazing little guys on the ice with him. Last year, the ice was full of the most amazing Campbell River hockey players. I know how hard it is to put yourself out there. It isn't easy, but it's worth it. If anyone knows what it takes to make a career out of playing a sport you are passionate it is Bryce. He would never want to brag about himself or his hockey resume, but come on... it's impressive!!!! He grew up in Campbell River (we dated in grade 9, that's a big deal right? ha!) and then he went on to play Junior hockey in Nanaimo, BC where he received a 4 year NCAA scholarship to Northern Michigan University. After 4 years of University Bryce spent the next 4 seasons playing professionally in New Jersey, Germany and Illinois, where he won an ECHL Championship in 2005 and a UHL Championship in 2007. He knows good hockey and has a passion for passing on the skills he has. Why not learn from a pro, someone who has been coached by some of the best coaches in the world. (His coach in Trenton, New Jersey Mike Haviland is now the assistant coach for the Chicago Blackhawks, his time in New Jersey resulted in the ECHL Kelly Cup)
If you or anyone you know is hoping to amp up your hockey skills this summer there is still space in his 2012 summer camps, at Strathcona Gardens in Campbell River, BC. If your kids are looking for a way to get them ready for rep try outs, the upcoming hockey season or just looking to get some amazing power skating skills from an amazing line up of local talent... then you may want to follow these links for more information. Next Level Training on Facebook Next Level Training in the NEWS There will also be a registered dietician Tiffany McFadden (who is super excellent) and an amazing lineup of coaches to help him such as former professional players Peter Trumbley and Mike Stutzel.

Everyone who participates in the camps will come away with a seriously great Next Level Training practice jersey as well as all kinds of new hockey skills. (Our awesome logo designed by Shannon Andrews Design) We decided to suit up our best model for a few photos in the jerseys. I think she looks a little on the absolutely adorable side!!
