The Hockey Pro Training Academy

After 10 years of professional hockey and a few more years reflecting on what worked for me (and what didn’t), this program is the culmination of everything. I’ve poured my heart into this program knowing the impact this information would’ve had on me as a young hockey player chasing my dreams.
The Hockey Pro Training Academy

What Players Are Saying

“"Hey Matt I just wanted to thank you for this amazing program! I played my first games of the season and scored my first career junior goal at home! You’ve really help me stick My game, be dialed in at all times and my practices and games have never been better!" -Ethan Huante El Paso Rhinos”

“"As you climb to the higher levels of hockey, it’s really the little things that separate “good” from “great.” If you want to gain an extra edge on all your competitors, you have to be training your mind. Mental game is so underrated yet such a huge part of success. Working with Matt has really helped me get rid of my self doubt and really focus on all the things that I do well. Once I figured out how to work his techniques into my own everyday routine, making my anxiety disappear and my overall confidence grew, and my game just took off! If you truly want success, there’s no other option. Thanks Matt!” -Tanner McClure University of Southern Maine”

“Through this program I learned how to work with my mind and not against it. Which in turn helped me play to my fullest potential. I was feeling better on and off the ice and enjoyed the game way more! I recommend everyone who wants to get better to work on their mindset and mental game. The Hockey Pro Training Academy Program offers everything you need to succeed!” -Matteo Cappuccio HC Vantaa ”

“I signed up for the program in mid-February.  I watched a bunch of the videos and did a handful of coaching calls with Matt.  I followed what he told me to do about relaxing and visualizing and what I’d do in key situations. The difference in my game was incredible. I felt really good pre-game and even better during and after. I had more points in my last five games than the prior 15. Then tryouts and showcases began and after the first one, four different teams called to recruit me…never had that before. Matt has been a huge help to me and I really appreciate it. I’m excited to continue the program and I’d tell anyone who really wants to get better that if you put in all the hard work on your skills and off ice training, you need to add the mental training to complete the workout. ”

- Jake Parker Walpole Express U18

“Matt and his program have had a significant impact on my game. Since I joined I’ve consistently been playing some of the best hockey of my life! I’m more confident in my abilities and now make plays I know I’m capable of making. I'm excited to keep working on the mental side of my game as I know it's benefited me tremendously already. Thanks again coach!! ”

- Reid West Pittsburgh Pens Elite

“I was named assistant captain of the team I was fighting just to make. Matt and his program have helped me so much with the mental side of my game! I realized it wasn’t all the skills I was lacking, it was the mental side and confidence too. Thanks again Matt!”

- Chase Tulk Kamloops Jr. Blazers

“If anyone has a son or daughter that is lacking self confidence on the ice you need to have them join hockey pro training. After my son started the program he started carrying the puck with more confidence and has a completely different outlook on the game. Don’t hesitate and join ASAP. ”

“Having struggled with my mental health and stability throughout my teen years I became fed up with the way my mind was directing my life. I put my foot down and decided to fix myself a year ago. After working constantly trying to improve my headspace I hit a wall. My life outside of hockey was beginning to see improvements and stability but when it came to playing the game I love I still struggled horrendously trying to control myself. I needed some sort of guidance. That’s when I found out about the Hockey Pro Training mental health course. I signed up immediately as I trusted Matt after following him for a few years already. The course gave me a timeline and specialized program for the sport of hockey. As I worked through the course and working on the exercises I began to see immediate results when it came to my games and practices. I became self aware, and soon realized the nerves and anxiety I experienced in hockey was no different to the stressors I experienced in everyday life. I realized I could control my mind in hockey just as I had learned to control my life outside of it. The program gave me the base to keep working on my mental health within the sport of hockey. Controlling your mind is an everyday struggle, however with some guidance you can be well on your way to becoming a more complete player and person. ”

- Nick Guzi

“Because of all your programs and all the things you do to help hockey players I become an all star of my division. ”

“I have been loving the program! I had my last game of highschool last night and I went into the game probably the most focused I've ever been! ”

Hockey Player

Ryan Stroh

“In my last three games, I scored 6 goals and got 3 assists so 9 points! I’m now the leading scorer of my team and I all of a sudden got way more confident! I’m also first center and I have a lot more ice time! Thank you! ”

Hockey Player

Phillip

“The Hockey Pro Training Academy has helped tremendously in terms of building my confidence. It's helped me recognize the kind of player I can be and is helping me play to my fullest potential. I went from not making teams, to getting noticed by scouts, getting more opportunities and I know it will help me get to the next level. It changes your thinking process and is undoubtedly helping hockey players all over the world”

Fundamentals We'll Master Together

  • Growth Mindset

    What is a growth mindset? How is it useful and how can we apply it to our hockey?

  • Flow State

    How do we get zoned in? How do we play our best more often?

  • Resilience

    How do we build our resilience so we can get up faster after getting knocked down?

  • Big Picture Thinking

    Maintaining a long-term view of our goals is critical to dealing with short-term bumps. How do we build this for ourselves?

  • Emotional Control

    Emotions can lift us up to be our best or crush us. How do we build awareness around our emotions and leverage them to help us reach flow state?

  • Confidence

    When we hit the ice are we feeling confident or fearful? This can make all the difference.
