Pro Prospect Return to Play Camp 2017
Chad Nehring, Fischtown Pinguins (DEL)
"I have seen and been to a lot of camps with hockey and I thought the whole Pro Prospect staff was world class, the knowledge they had was amazing, any questions I had was answered and discussed which is important coming off an injury. The most important part was their excitement and drive level towards Pro Prospect Camp. The motivation they all have is contagious and made me want to work harder and get better each day.
I feel the testing was the most important part of the camp. First, seeing physiotherapist when my knee was weak and I was nervous about recovery. He gave me the confidence and the right knowledge on what was wrong and what I needed to improve for my return to play timeline. From first to last day, the results were there and it has given me the confidence to get back into a game now."
Players - Pro Prospect Skill Camp 2017
Jan Neuenschwander, EHC Biel-Bienne (NLA)
"I think the Skill Camp concept is pretty good. It was interesting to get feedback from all the tests. The best was all the off ice and on ice drills and techniques we learned. I really liked that specific stuff. And that group size was small so coaches had time to help everybody. I would recommend this camp to other because i really learned new stuff and i liked that we had new things on the ice and also off the ice."
Patrik Parkkonen, BIK Karlskoga (HockeyAllsvenskan)
"The skill camp was good. I learned new things and there was always a distinct plan in practices. I got most out of shooting coaching. My shot got better immediately. Pro Prospect concept offers a great possibility to improve my weaknesses. We did testing, I got test results and then analysis with coaches. I recommend Pro Prospect camps warmly to everybody."
Cedric Hächler, EHC Biel-Bienne (NLA)
"I really like the concept, specially with the filming. That´s how we get feedback really quick and we can correct it right away. I appreciate coaches´ honesty and attitude to help us. I also liked that the camp was right before the pre-season so I already get the feeling for the ice.
I can recommend this camp because you learn very much about skating and off-ice exercises. Every hockey player can improve his skills, but you need someone who can tell, explain and show you how it goes practically."
Ole Olleff, Eispiraten Crimmitschau (DEL2)
"Skill camp was awesome. There is a reason for every training and exercise we are doing. I also like that everything was so hockey specific and that´s something that I can use in game situations. I wouldn´t change anything in Skill camp concept. I´m very satisfied."
Players - Pro Prospect Camp 2017
Christoph Körner, Fischtown-Pinguins Bremerhaven (DEL)
"I think the camp was awesome. How everything was organized, the personal meetings and the exercises helped me a lot to improve. All in all there is way more positive than negative feedback. Thanks a lot again for that camp and I hope I can come back next season."
Dominik Grafenthin, Dresdner Eislöwen (DEL2)
"It was great. The camp has improved significantly from the last year and I think it develops every year. Coaching staff is great. If some player has a question they always take the time to answer it, don´t matter in which situation.
Thanks for the opportunity especially for young players to practice well in summer and get teached how a summer/winter practice should look like."
Luca Zitterbart, EV Landshut (Germany3)
"For me the Camp was a really good experience! The most of the stuff we did was new for me, but you guys explained why we are doing these things. It made sense for me and now I will change my off-ice work."
Kristian Suleski, EHC Biel-Bienne (NLA)
"We did very specific exercices for hockey. The most surprising thing I learned and that helped me the most was the analysis with the videos. I really saw the points I could change and develop. For me, there weren’t any negative things in this camp."
Players - Pro Prospect Camp 2016
Noureddine Bettahar, Iserlohn Roosters (DEL)
"I have really good experience with the Pro Prospect Player Camp 2016. I learned a lot of new stuff and how to workout during the summer right way. It was really professional and everything was set up for us perfectly. All in all thanks Pro Prospect staff."
"I would describe the month in Finland in Pro Prospects Player camp 2016 as very tough and very fun at the same time. It is a very professional program with great workouts which pushed me every day to become a better hockey player. All the off-ice workouts were designed to simulate hockey movements and activate muscles, which are used on the ice, which I liked a lot! In addition to that it was great to be able to use the available ice time to work on basics like skating, stick-handling, shooting, where a lot of small details were presented, which I didn't know before.
Dieter Orendorz, Iserlohn Roosters (DEL)
"Pro Prospect Player Camp hat mir sehr weiter geholfen. Alles war super organisiert. Das Training war sehr gut strukturiert und wir hatten viel spaß. Alle trainer waren nett und hilfsbereit. Im Allgemeinen war das Camp eine Erfahrung wert man lernt sehr viel und würde nochmal hinfliegen."
Tobias Kircher, Fischtown-Pinguins Bremerhaven (DEL)
"The travel arrangements were good, no problems at all. Housing was really nice too, right on the lake. I thought the training helped me a lot and I learned a lot of new hockey specific exercises, what made me a better player on the ice! The training plan was definitely hard, but it was also fun work with a great group of guys and great coaches! I really had a great experience at Pro Prospects Player Camp and can only recommend it to all players!"
Dominik Grafenthin, Dresdner Eislöwen (DEL2)
"I think its great that young players have the opportunity to learn something new that nobody ever told you. For me my battle game have changed because I know now what is important to stand good on the ice. I learned so many new things how to practise right off the ice and also on the ice. Nutrition coach also helped me to get the right food at the right time. The focus on the ice was on the details which you never can focus on in a normal team practise."
Ole Olleff, Eispiraten Crimmitschau (DEL2)
"Pro Prospect camp is really good because every player gets helped individually and we learned a lot of things which we should focus off the ice. I liked the apartment we had and that there were only 9 players in our group. We had a good group of the guys having a lot of fun during the camp. During Pro Prospect camp, I learned how to skate and shoot in the right position. Big part of the camp were the off-ice practices where I learned a lot of things which ice hockey players should work at summer.
During the camp I worked a lot with my flexibility and core. Now I feel that I am stronger on my skates. The Pro Prospect staff was awesome. I liked the way they treated us. I always talk about the camp with other players and tell them how good it is and how the Pro Prospect camp helps players to get better with the on and off-ice training concept. I definitely would recommend Pro Prospect camp to other players."
Thomas Popiesch, Fischtown-Pinguins Bremerhaven (DEL)
"Die off Season Arbeit ist immer wichtiger für die individuelle Entwicklung eines Eishockeyspielers. Für junge Spieler ist es sehr wichtig einen individuellen Plan zu finden, damit sie sich im Profi Hockey durchsetzen können.
Durch meine langjährige Zusammenarbeit mit Sami Kaartinen schätze ich seine hohe Qualität beim Athletiktraining und seiner Arbeit auf dem Eis mit jungen Spielern. Wir konnten schon im letzten Jahr von der top Arbeit profitieren, weil unser Spieler Tobias Kircher schneller den Sprung vom Juniorhockey in den Senioren Bereich geschafft hat (Einsätze in der DEL und DEL2)."
Patrick Schöb, EHC Biel-Bienne Spirit AG U-17, Switzerland National team U-16
"I visited Pro Prospect Camp 2017 for one week as a guest coach. I really like the concept of the Pro Prospect Camps. The question “why” is central in all aspects of the training sessions on and off the ice. The small group of players and the great knowledge of the coaches have a great impact on the quality of the practices and theoretical inputs. The learning environment is perfect, because the coaches from Pro Prospect don’t need to judge or rate them. So the players can try everything and get honest and individual feedback without thinking about ice time or whatever.
Especially the connection from the on-ice and off-ice performance combined with nutrition, recovery and mental aspects is a key element for future success. In these camps the young players learn from all of them and it should boost their careers at an important transition moment from youth hockey to pro in their career."
Gianni Ehrensperger, SC Langenthal (NLB)
"I was at Pro Prospect Camp 2017 for two weeks as a guest coach. That time was very interesting and I learned a lot of new things.
I really like the way Pro Prospect staff analyze and give feedback to the players. They give support for all different parts in hockey. That is truly needed to reach the top level. This good overall view helps Pro Prospect staff to make players better on an individual base."
Martin Ancicka, ISMA agency
"Eine der wichtigsten Sachen in der Karriere des Eishockeyspielers ist, die Sommervorbereitung. Diese Sportart wird mittlerweile immer schneller, härter und athletischer und deswegen ist eine Zusammenarbeit mit Spezialisten sehr wichtig! Durch Pro Prospect camp bekommen unsere Klienten die beste Möglichkeit sich im Bereich off und on ice top auf die neue Saison vorzubereiten. ISMA Klienten waren von dem Pro Prospect camp begeistert."
