During two years of Juuso`s coaching I experienced that his theme "Enjoy the Game" is not just words; but with Juuso it becomes action on ice - a way to learn the game and enjoy it. No matter what level one reaches in his hockey career I believe that coaches are in key positions in young peoples' lives. I highly recommend this book to coaches.

Ice hockey is a GAME on ice, not a WAR on ice". It is a SKILL sport, especially at an early age. When the players have learned the ABCs and start to understand the main principles of the game, then . . . but only then . . hockey will be more like a combat over all the ice. It is not enough sweating during a game; you must show skill, too . . . " wrote Anatoli Tarasov many years ago. This fundamental book is a handbook for the enthusiastic, but inexperienced coachlinstructor. There is only ONE HOCKEY, but you can interpret and develop the hockey you want.

I`ve attended many clinics and practices with Tom Molloy. During Toms practices you learn to play hockey and you also have a lot of fun."
