What our customers say about us
“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.”
Chad Nehring, Düsseldorfer EG
“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.”
Jan Neuenschwander, EHC Biel-Bienne
“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.”
Patrik Parkkonen, Orli Znojmo
“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.
Cedric Hächler, SC Rapperswil-Jona Lakers
“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.”
Christoph Körner, Düsseldorfer EG
“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.
And overall I learned something new everyday, whether it was how to breath right during yoga or nutrition, all aspects of how to be a successful athlete were presented. On top of that all 4 weeks were well organized, amazing housing solution, good food, enough free time to recover and also have some fun! Finally a huge role, that made those 4 weeks so successful, played the fact, that you work with awesome and highly motivated people, who push you to the next level and are ready to help with any issue and answer any individual questions.”
Denis Shevyrin, EC Kassel Huskies
“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.”
Dominik Grafenthin, Graz 99ers
“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.”
Ole Olleff, Eispiraten Crimmitschau
“This was by far the best camp I’ve ever been at. I’m so happy that I joined. I’ve learned so much.”

About coaching and coach clinics
“Pro Prospect´s visit was very positive and we got more than expected in the start. As a coach I want to keep learning all the time and all the things we learned from you guys are really valuable for future.
We as coaches often concentrate on systems and might forget the technical aspects. No matter what the players’ age is, it’s important to keep focusing and getting better with every possible way.
We saw many useful things during your stay here. Now we will focus more on details and repeat all those things daily. When our players develop, our overall game gets better as well.”
Edo Terglav, Bruleurs de Loups – Grenoble
“Off-season work is more and more important for individual development of ice hockey players. It is very important to find and create individual training plan for young players, which helps them to turn to pro players.
Based on my long term co-operation with Sami Kaartinen I know, that quality of off-ice and on-ice coaching that he is offering, is very high and helps young ice hockey players to develop a lot. We as a club already got proofs of that, when our young player Tobias Kircher participated Pro Prospect camps. That helped him to take the step from junior hockey to pro hockey (DEL).”
Thomas Popiesch, Fischtown-Pinguins Bremerhaven
“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.”
Patrick Schöb, EHC Biel-Bienne Spirit
“Having Pro Prospect here was a really good experience for us. First as coaches, we could see different way to do things. I also know from the players that they really enjoyed having you here.
During your visit we saw big enthusiasm from our players and they worked really hard to improve their skills. I was amazed how fast the kids were out of the crossovers. They were literally flying out there and they could notice that it makes difference how they do it. For me that was a biggest notice while your stay in Crimmitschau.”
Boris Rousson, ETC Crimmitschau

Club management's perspective
“We had great co-operation with Pro Prospect at season 2018-2019. Around 30 players participated Pro Prospect development program. That included on-ice and off-ice testing, coaching visits, individual analysis and coach clinics. Main focus was at skating techniques.
The concept was effective and simple at same time. Drills and practices both on the ice and off the ice were perfect. Drills on the ice were easy to understand and off-ice training had correlation to on-ice training. Coach clinics included theory and practical parts on the ice or at the gym. That made it easy to understand.
Overall the co-operation worked well. We had very good communication with Eetu and atmosphere was great. Players improved their skating skills a lot during the season. That was clearly to be seen at the second on-ice test session.”
Lars Bach, Herning Ishockey Klub, Development Manager
“Co-operation with Pro Prospect went really well. We are very happy what we have achieved.
I’m very pleased with intensive weeks during the season where Pro Prospect was coaching. Several one week visits was a good rhythm of working together. Players really liked to work with Pro Prospect. That helped them to realize what they can do better to develop and between visits they maintained the same habits.
We have been on the same page all the time. It was important to hear the development targets that we have and to get achievable program and advices to reach our goals as organization. For me that was one of the main points.
I really like Pro Prospect’s coaching methods. They are open-minded and take our point of views in consideration. That is important.”
Martin Steinegger, EHC Biel-Bienne, Sports Manager
“It was great to have Pro Prospect coaches in Grenoble. Players were really happy about learning and trying new techniques. They were excited and wanted to improve their game. That’s the point. It’s important for coaches as well to learn new things and transfer that to players.
We worked a lot with skating. In quick turns and pivots Pro Prospect’s method was to skip some steps, avoid crossovers and do it controlled and fast. That is making our players faster in everything they do on the ice. We feel that our players and team will be better because of these things we have been working on.”
Jean-Francois Dufour, GM, Bruleurs de Loups – Grenoble
Agents view on our player development
“One of the most important things for the players is summer training. Ice hockey is becoming faster and faster. Players are stronger, more athletic and that´s why it´s important to work with a specialist. Pro Prospect camps offer our clients the best way to get ready for next season by offering both off- and on-ice activities. All the clients from ISMA have been extremely satisfied of Pro Prospect camps.”
