It was a great pleasure working with the players this past summer at the USJDP. They showed a willingness and desire to work hard which led to great improvement over the course of the week. And it doesn't get much better than doing all this in the University of Denver facilities, wow!

Quick email to give an update on my son, '02 skater Ryan Plotke - 2018 Week 2 Resident Camper, Team 1 (Black). It's November 5th and Ryan is still talking about camp back in June. He keeps asking me if 2019 registration is open yet. Aside making lifelong friends (the boys talk everyday in a group chat) and having fun with them, he loved the training sessions that pushed him to a higher level and also liked the regimented daily schedule. He came back to Chicago a different player and a different kid (I think Coach Z made a man out of him) His speed, puck control and all around "smart hockey" sense tripled. I'm very thankful for the intense, high level of training you guys provided to Ryan. We were in Denver last weekend for 2 regular season games and with visiting DU, I felt the need to at least drop you guys an email and express my thanks as a parent and Ryan's unmeasurable take-away's from camp. He's doing as well as you expected him to when leaving DU. He can not wait to go back to USJDP, you guys are all around top notch! See you next year.

I can't thank you enough for putting the biggest smile on our son's face when we picked him up at the airport last night. He was exhausted, but said it was one of the best weeks of his life! Please thank Coach's Z, Gaetano, Doc, Parker & Daikawa for all their dedication and hard work. Thank you all so very much again. Luke is already looking forward to next year's camp.

Just wanted to drop a line and tell you how much fun Ben had at your camp. Being one of the youngest players there he could only getter better. The skill level was great. On the way home he asked if he could go again next year. See you in 2018!
