I wanted to drop you an email to let you know how much my son’s (ages 12 and 14) made out with your stickhandling and checking tapes. They started working with the tapes from last spring and have made dramatic gains in their skill levels. This achievement has given them greater self confidence when playing as well as a deeper understanding and enjoyment of the game. Unlike a skills camp, the boys are able to go back and review the tapes whenever they want. I believe this is the best money I ever spent on hockey. I should point out that at first the boy’s felt that many of the stickhandling skills were beyond their ability but with time and practice the skills developed and became second nature. One thing that helped them stay interested was that they really wanted to learn the trick moves which seemed impossible. With only 15 or so minutes of dryland practice a day for the past half of a year they have gotten to the point where their coaches consider them natural born stickhandlers. The checking tapes took all of the mystery out of checking and my son’s now give and take effective body checks and have become very efficient with their stick checking. I can see a complete difference in their body positioning when playing. Anyway, we couldn’t be more pleased with the results….I wanted to share with you the pleasure that working with your tapes has brought us. Both of my son’s have become impact players on their respective teams and come off the ice with the satisfaction of knowing they made a difference in their games.
Thank you very much,
Thanks for your e-mail. I will order the videos by name through the website.
I watched your stickhandling skills video with the same level of amazment as when I first saw Tiger Woods juggle a golf ball on his 7-iron, then hit a dead-straight shot down the fairway... My teams will really get a kick out of watching you… I am going to recommend to the rink that they play the video on the monitors in the lobby. Hopefully, they will distribute your clinic information to those who request it. Send me some and I will try to get it out there for you. There really is a lot of hockey interst here in the Atlantic District. But, there is also so much junk out there in the "hockey skill development" industry that I really never endorse anything to my players unless I truly believe it to be worth their hard earned money... I was impressed by your presentation more than any other and hope that you can come to the area to do a clinic. I think your video will help in this regard for those who do not know you by name and of course, I will respect your copyright and will not reproduce or sell your video to anyone.

It was a pleasure to make your personal acquaintance after all the
phone time. My family and I all enjoyed the time we spent with you.
It was also great to see you in action in person, rather than on the
video. One of the 15 year-olds, who had seen your video, said it
rather well: "It's one thing to see him on video; you can tell
yourself that is not quite real, trick photography or something; but
when you see Sean do the same thing in person, then you start to
believe that you can do it yourself."….
I hope to have you back again. Regards,
Stickhandling for Life!
I would have paid 5 times what these tapes cost! Why? Because the tapes are just about everything you need to know about stickhandling. Stickhandling Beyond Belief will last you for the rest of your life. It takes you from a fledgling to a god. The tapes cover the essentials, like how long your stick should be and conclude with complex techniques named after pros like Gretzky. All the drills are shown from different angles and are walked through slowly so you don’t miss a thing. There isn’t anything missing from these tapes except a portable TV/VCR so you can watch them at the rink. Rating out of five: 5

I received your tape yesterday
You did an incredible job in showing how to execute fakes and dekes it’s the best tape on hockey techniques I’ve ever seen. It’s not the last tape I’m buying from you. Everybody will hear about it in Montreal.
Thank you again,
Thanks for a great tape series. That has helped my stickhandling so
Much…. Your videos have been the best purchase I have made since my skates. Now I understand why somethings work like they do and how those great players like Fedorov, Bure, Jagr, and Lemiuex make all of those fantastic moves(now I just have to get the years of experience and practice part down)…. I like the way you teach the material in your videos and I really feel I could benefit from a skating video made by you.
Anyway, thanks again for a great tape series.
…I purchased you video series “Stickhandling Beyond Belief” about two months ago. I am writing you to let you know that your instruction has helped me out tremendously…. Your video’s have provided me with the fundamental concepts to use as building blocks for my training. Many coach’s have different teaching methods. Your method is my favorite because you analyze the concept at hand, all the way down to the small details. That was exactly what I was looking for. In other words, you teach the why, not just the how. Thank you for the foundation….I would love to schedule a lesson with you.
Thank you so much,
….My 4 year old daughter, Carly, is really into your tapes….I love them too…and she has to watch them everyday with me…She has the “dribble, dribble, FAKE” down pat…it is a hoot! If you ever need a reference for you tape I would be happy to tell anyone your tapes are a can’t miss…My 12 year old son is learning from them too…His teammates told him the “Bobby Orr Move” was “cheap” tonight. You have brought the love of hockey our family has to us again. My girl’s team tries the hard drills…I just tell them they aren’t suppose to be able to do them. Last practice was on glove protection and driving the net wide right from your videos.
Your tape series has how I feel about hockey is a clear, concise and straight forward manor. Good luck with your business. You have my trust in your skills as a teacher and coach.
Also, I have recommended your series to several coaches. They all see to be disciples of Terry Cullen tape now. Maybe in 4 months they will see that their tape is good but a linear approach to stickhandling. Your tapes are a 360 degree “ON STEROIDS” version of Mr. Cullen’s tapes. Also, much of the attack tactics in many of the Center of Excellence tape from Canada are in your tapes. I can’t say enough about your techniques.
I am a big fan of your stick handling video series. Excellent product-nothing else like it in the market…. I just ordered your checking series and I am sure they will be great.
My email relates to camps. I was hoping to find one of your offerings that would work for an 11 year old and for an adult. Last year you had one in Rochester in August….
Thanks for your response.
Sean....I have your stickhandling and checking DVDs....I have to say they are as good as it gets...you sure spent a ton of time on these...also attending the Skating Symposium......anything new on the horizon?
I recently had the pleasure of viewing one of your tapes and was thoroughly impressed…..
Thanks, My son is looking forward to attending one of your camps this summer.
I have your tapes and I also met you at the Atlantic District Advanced Coaching Clinic last year. I have been totally impressed with the tapes. I was curious to know if you run any adult clinics and or schools?....
I have purchased both sets of videos from you on stickhandling and checking and they are great. As a youth hockey coach, I use ideas from them very frequently in our practices….
I have all your DVDs and they are outstanding. Any plans for a
comprehensive shooting DVD?
I am writing you this letter to apologize to you. Over a month ago, I called about ordering your stickhandling video series. I asked if you knew of any places that sold it at a lower price that you sold direct. Well let me just say these videos are so good that I would have paid over $200 for them. These are some of the best hockey instructional videos that I have ever seen. You must know every move in the book….As me and a friend were watching these videos, we thought you could probably score on an opposing team all by yourself. Sure enough in you drills video you do a 1 on 3 drill and you do just that!...
Finally, I was wondering if you plan on producing more videos. I would like to see some on skating and shooting.
Thank you very much,
…The stickhandling series was great and my son watches it all the time, on his own!!! He is 12! We are sure the checking will help as well. Keep up the great work….
…I seem to know many people who say they know you…. My 14 year old was Gold level before I bought your DVD’s and since I bought your 5 DVD set and the Breakaways, Penalty Shots & Shoot-outs, which my boys watch over and over, he has gained a higher level of control. You’re better than video’s games!
Your puck handling, trick shots and your instructions have inspired my son and he is working on every shot you demo on your DVD’s. My son’s coach was telling me that he had set up a clinic with you some years ago, I’d love to take my son to one and to be able to meet you, if at all possible. I have a feeling that you are going to be a huge influence in my son’s life….

We have all your video's and they are fantastic!...Any videos of yours we've seen are excellent so I'm sure the next will be no different.
thank you very much for the „Stickhandling beyond belief!“, that you sent me. Your materials have filled me with enthusiasm. They are very interesting, and professionally made….
P.S.: I`m a fan of yours...
Just got your DVDs. I'm psyched. I eat up videos like yours that progress from basics to advanced.
