"Thanks so much for this. To be honest, I wasn't sure what to expect but I can safely say you exceeded it 10x over. Great insight for on and off-ice. Thanks again and feel to reach out at any time." Dru/Greg Krebs
Very helpful, informative and detailed. Loved the feedback on my play, my comparisons to other players even though I know I’m my own player. The feedback on off ice drills was very helpful. Thank you and appreciate it. Kosta Manikis
Thank you for the report and the audio evaluation, the audio portion of the evaluation made it very personal and is also very accurate how I feel as a player. The tips provided in the audio will really help to improve my game. The scouts really captured my strengths and the area of improvement to need it to be more successful at the next level. Thank you again for the report. Mathieu Gautier
"Thanks Garnet For the player evaluation. It was fantastic. You covered all areas of Oliver’s game from what he does well to what he needs to focus on as he moves forward in is hockey development. The audio portion was awesome. Just hearing how a pro scout breaks down and picks apart a players game but also providing positive feedback. At the same time is quite a skill. You hit it out of the park." Thanks, Oliver/Randy Tulk
"I enjoyed and appreciated the remarkable feedback from you. When I requested help, I did not expect the podcast to be so thorough and informative, so thank you very much. With regards to your feedback, I researched overspeed drills and I can undoubtedly see how it can help improve my game. With respect to deception, I appreciate your comments. These are skills that I know if I can get proficient at I will be able to separate myself from other players as I advance. I am able to work on deception in my garage which will hopefully help transfer into real game situations. I will also watch more NHL highlights and get a journal to note things that I think I can use in games as well as all the skills I learn in practices. The advice you provided was excellent and I appreciate all the time both of you spent. The feedback was specific to me, focused on my weaknesses, as well as what I need to improve on to be successful at the next level. Finally, it also provided some really goo d life advice on how to manage the journey into hopefully becoming a successful professional hockey player and an overall good person. Thanks again for taking the time to provide me with some great advice, which I will try hard to implement." Connor Levis
"Dad and I did not expect to receive such a detailed report from you, thank you very much for that. There are scouts in my club, but we saw such recommendations for the first time.” Nikita Meshcheryakov
Thank you for your overview and thoughts on my game. It provided me some great insight into how you see my current development along with the areas that I should continue to develop. I appreciate the training ideas and drills that were related to the position of goalie that will allow me to improve my game. I also found it interesting to hear the comparison of my game to older goalies that you also had visibility to over your scouting years. I made notes of the various players names and will now go on line to watch any video that I can find related to these goalies. This video footage should provide me some more tips that I can use in the future to become a better player. Ryan Sanborn
Thanks so much for this podcast. I really appreciate all the valuable information you provided William! I really appreciate your information on training and it's influence on the brain. I'm a firm believer of this type of training (you discuss in detail). I will likely send another email with more specific questions about training. I really appreciate all the words of wisdom you provided him. William Gourgouvelis
I was impressed with how detailed the evaluation was. I think as a player we value what others think of us and individuals and players. The report done on myself validated some of my feelings on where my game is at and I found that to be a good thing. I obviously know I have a lot to work on and this evaluation just hit home some of the areas that I particularly need to improve. I also liked the discussion back and forth on my game as well as the suggestions on how to improve. This evaluation is an excellent tool for me to use to help me going forward. I am hoping to use some of the suggestions to work on taking my game to the next level. Thank you Insider Scouting for providing me such a high-end evaluation. Hudson Thornton
The podcast was great and for the first time I have felt that someone was really trying to give me guidance and advice. I felt that you hit my strengths and weaknesses well. I felt you gave some great pointers on How to become a stronger mental player. I would have loved to get some more guidance on how to work on specifics - like my weakness on the boards... In addition, I would have loved to hear some guidance on how to get seen - basically what I am asking is if you are shocked that I have not been drafted what do I need to do to get on peoples radar. I respected what you guys said so much, it made me want more. I will definitely recommend this service to other kids. Ryan Kelly
Thank you for the report, It was amazing to get some useful information and some constructive criticism to help improve my game. Its mind blowing to hear that there are people out there that pay as close attention to you as the report suggests. Not only did they go in depth in my game but gave me things to work on as well, to me that means a lot. The audio was amazing as well, it makes you feel like you're in a conversation which is great for my learning. With ice starting to open back up I've already started to work on the advice you've given me. For everything you've done I thank you. Joel Webb
"Insiders Scouting provided a detailed oral evaluation and written evaluation that included tips on improvement. I was impressed by the breakdown that covered all aspects of the game. You provided exactly what I wanted and exceeded my expectations. I will definitely reach out again in the future for additional evaluations and tips. It was a pleasure working with Insider Scouting - especially the quick responses. Thank you for the tweet." Jacki Pazzia
The evaluation/assessment was informative. It was good to receive an honest, unbiased and objective view from a third party. Many of the points mentioned about my game reinforced what I have been told by others. That being said, there were several things and tips to take away from the evaluation that will assist me in progressing to the next level. The positive feedback of what I do well and the constructive criticism of what I need to work on is motivation for me in my hockey path toward playing at the junior level and beyond. Your feedback and advice is greatly appreciated. Alexander Dimitriadis
I just wanted to thank you for the excellent evaluation. It was great to hear a very experienced scout's point of view on my skills and where I need to grow as a player. The in-depth audio evaluation was incredible and so detailed. The feedback was truthful and will definitely help me focus on what I will strive to improve this year. I very much appreciate the feedback and I will definitely use this feedback to improve my skills. Thank you for all the hard work and time put into my evaluation process. Thanks so much, Nikolas Jones
“Thank you for the detailed report and feedback. I was very impressed with your experience, suggestions and guidance. It gave me lots to work on and think about as I continue to develop my game.” Lachlan Sartison
I would like to thank the guys at Insider Scouting for their thorough and revealing evaluation they did for Brock .We were happy with how personal the reports were both reiterating things we've heard before as well adding some new skills that he needs to work on. In his last season Brock spoke to many scouts and advisors but this report served as an unbiased voice that not only motivated him but also sharpened his focus on the skills he most needed to improve.The video they compiled also was helpful with showcasing him to a few programs in a professional manner. Sincerely and with Thanks, Mark Bisler
I believe that Insider Scouting is a great way for players to get better and learn what their weaknesses are. The scouts talk about many amazing aspects that could help a players game in the future. The scouting info is definitely worth it and has helped me greatly in the time that I have been using it. The scouts always talk about things you are good at doing and certain things that you need to improve in. That is why the scouting info is so helpful. They talk about what you are good at, but also what you need to improve in. David Mnatsakanyan
I appreciated the feedback and wished there could have been more opportunities out of it but Covid 19 took those away. I’ve gone through the report and am confident I can take the pointers and suggestions and implement them as I move forward in my game. Thank you for this opportunity to grow as a player, I look forward to the newsletter! James Tatro
I really enjoyed the scouting report for a few reasons, first I can see what people don’t like in my game and take those words and will improve my game. Second, I can see what other people see in my game, and include what you told me to what my coaches told me to make me an all around better defenseman. The report was a good little kick in the pants to see what other people think I need to improve. I have grown again and I am now 6’2” and 205lbs so my body will need to catch up. Thank you for taking the time to do this and I look forward to taking my next steps to be a lot better. Ben Costantino
The feedback was quite accurate. The evaluators did a masterful job of seeing what were some of my strengths and some of my weaknesses. They even expanded on my weaknesses and told me of a few drills that I could do to help strengthen my weaknesses. I am on the smaller side and I can not do anything about that but I have started to go to the gym, exercise at home more, and eating more healthy. I feel I am getting harder to knock off the puck. Thanks for the advice it was very helpful. Riley Rudolph
Thank you for the scouting report, especially the audio portion as it felt more personal. I was actually surprised with how much detail you provided and found it very encouraging to hear my strengths, as well as hearing honest feedback on where my weaknesses lie. All the recommendations and advice you have offered to me are really appreciated. With Covid it’s been ridiculed not being on the ice but it give me and opportunity to ramp up my strength and training off ice to work on my athleticism. Thank you again, I really appreciate your time. Jakub Kohn
Thanks for your great work in helping me prepare my hockey for the next level. Both the video and the evaluation sheet give the insight from your perspective, insider scout. Now I have gone through both of them a couple of times, and I am use most of your suggestions as a guide in the summer training program, including both on ice and off ice so both instructors are giving me a positive response. More importantly, my attitude towards hockey is changing from being dependent to independent. I have also spent a lot of time to improve my hockey IQ by watching and think of the game. James Guo
I am very grateful to Insider Scouting for giving me a breakdown of my game. I was surprised at how much of the video that was watched and could tell that Garnet saw what I brought to the ice and where I needed to improve. Both my father and I agreed with much of what was said and some of the areas we had not considered but it all made sense. As a hockey player that wants to improve and go as far as I can in hockey I appreciate anyone who is honest with me and lets me know if I am doing something wrong. I was glad to not only get feedback but training suggestions and other strategies to improve. Thank you very much to Insider Scouting my family is very good they gave it a try and I am going to try to incorporate and adapt a lot of the suggestions into my game and training regimen. Anson Parker
I really appreciate the effort that went into this report. Going into this, I didn’t quite understand the level of effort and detail that you were going to put into my report. As I prepare for my summer training program, I have added elements and area of improvement that you spoke about into my training program. This gives me additional confidence in my summer training program and will help prepare me for next season and tryouts. I also found the audio presentation really unique with a personal touch that went into a lot of detail. I highly recommend insider scouting!- Ashton Billesberger
I would definitely refer others to Insider Scouting. It’s nice to hear all the good things that the player does, but more importantly is honest, positive critique and feedback of what the player could improve on. Also, I think Insider Scouting can actually build confidence in the player after their review. Love the video clips posting as well. Jim DeMatteo
My dad sent me the link to take a look at Insider Scouting, and even though I was skeptical at first I thought it might be worth a try. So we signed up for it and I got my report about a week later. I was very pleased with both the written report and the verbal download. As with many things in life worth pursuing, the guys pointed out both strengths and weaknesses in my game, and as I prepare this spring/summer for next season, I am continuing to train both. I thought their evaluation of my game in their scouting report was spot on, and look forward to working with Insider Scouting again in the future. Mason Hoehn
The audio recording on Sam Callahan was very informative and we really enjoyed listening to it. The recording accurately describes some of Sam’s strengths and areas for improvement. We enjoy the Insider Scouting site and learning about other 2004 born players. Sam Callahan
The player evaluation was very in-depth and informative. It reinforced the strengths and showed where some improvement is needed. Very professional presentation, would recommend www.insiderscouting.com for sure. Thanks Aaron Shanks
I was overwhelmed by the amount of information/scouting that was put into my evaluation from the audio to the written report. In the written report, I had never heard of the term “hip functionality” and I read how it effects power, acceleration to create efficient forward skating. I have used the evaluation to work on my power, speed, and overall conditioning. I am looking forward to the upcoming season. Thank you for your insight and I am looking forward to keeping in contact. Anthony Vernillo
Hey, thank you so much for all of this! It really helped me gain some confidence in myself and is giving me more drills and things to work on and improve so I can make it to the next level! I’m definitely going to try the zorb ball. Thank you also for the recommendation on shooting 24 pucks in an open field and then shadow strides because i did it two days ago and then did the shadow strides yesterday and when i shot a puck it felt more accurate and better! I will definitely keep in touch and if you have any more drills you could send me that would be amazing! I hope you guys are doing well and Thank you for all the feedback it means the absolute most to me! Hope to hear from you soon! Thank You, Jason
Thank you for the evaluation. I thought the assessment you made was very accurate and well represented my style of game. I liked the comparison to current players and who I should watch to try and improve my game. I thought what you recommended for me to do was very insightful especially with the off ice recommendations. With the pandemic and no ice available it was good to get ideas on how to improve during this period of time. I appreciate the time you put into this and would appreciate anymore feed back in the future. Brendan Dumas
"Thank you for the scouting report, and I loved the audio portion as it felt more personal. You see scouts out there and you wonder if they’re watching you. To hear that you’ve been watching me the past couple years means a lot as it means your review is an honest reflection on what you've seen of me over the years instead of what was seen in just a few games. I was actually surprised with how much detail you provided, but found it very encouraging to hear my strengths, as well as hearing honest feedback on where my weaknesses lie. All the recommendations and advice you have offered to me are also really appreciated. With Covid it’s been very difficult not being able to get on the ice, so just as one example, with the help of a trusted trainer, I’ve ramped up on my strength and training off ice to work on my athleticism. Thank you again, I really appreciate your time. Ryan Wheeler"
What you gave me is great stuff to work on and I can't wait to get back on the ice. I think getting me to watch NHL players and seeing what they are doing by tracking them on paper then watching one of my games and comparing how my movements are to see where I may need to improve will help my game a lot. I never thought about looking at things that way. I'm training hard over the summer to help prepare for the fall. I want to thank you for doing this up for me. I can't wait till the season starts up again so I can see how much I have improved from last year and look forward to what you have to say. Thanks, Pierson Main
I just wanted to write back to give thanks for the scouting evaluation reports. The feedback was extremely in depth. I was pleased with the 4-page evaluation checklist ratings and was blown away with the length of the verbal evaluation, in which I needed to playback several times due the amount of information that was said. I really appreciate all the positive points mentioned about my game and especially the tips given for areas of my game in which I can improve. There were many good points spoken in which I will incorporate into my game. I really liked how player comparisons were used as examples to get your suggestions across. This helped me understand the points of the advice. I will use all the great tips provided to help me in achieving my goals. Thanks again for all the expert advice that was put in for my evaluation. Jacob Wesserling
This was a well thought out and detailed report. Many of the suggestions and observations rung true with assessments from coaches and other sources. This was well worth the time and effort to do. Just hearing the in depth evaluation renewed my son’s motivation during a difficult time when all training has been shut due to COVID-19. He is looking forward to applying the insights from this report into his routine, mental attitude and game as soon as hockey is cleared to return. Caleb Lenkorn
Thank you for taking the time to do the podcast for me, I can already see your tips improving my game in the fall. Firstly I don’t have any questions your guidance was really straight forward and I can’t wait to get started. Secondly the service was great, the tips along with the corrective criticism will really help and translate into my game. I will definitely start taking a look at Mcnabbs shifts and then compare them to mine to help improve my game. Being a great partner with great poise is something i’ve been striving for and want to achieve it in the near future. The on ice drills that were given to me throughout the podcast will be my main priority during the following season to improve in all my weaknesses. Your knowledge about the game is one thing I admire and for you to give me tips and tricks is something I won’t be taking for granted. Once again thank you for the service and can’t wait to continue working with you. Thanks, Matthew MacPherson
I really enjoyed going through the report you did on me. It was interesting to see all of the different categories that were rated and your thoughts on what I should focus my development on. The verbal report was very informative and I really liked your ideas for dryland training over the summer. I’m designing a training program for myself based on your ideas. You have definitely helped to set me up for the coming season. Thanks again. - Massimo Fazio
Thank you for your in depth evaluation of my game as a hockey player. You guys were extremely accurate I believe with the ratings and with your comments. I also can't thank you enough for your transparency and attention to detail with your comments. I have taken notes on the entire recording and have listened to it numerous times, and still am as I find new little things to focus on every time. With that being said, you guys are the only ones to give me very forward-focused advice and lots of direction. I am very grateful for this as it helps me figure out how to improve in the areas you mentioned. I also look forward to taking advantage of my opportunity to join the zoom calls with your elite level trainer that was mentioned. I overall I can't thank you enough for the amount of effort and detail was put into my report, and I look forward to staying in touch in the future. Thanks again - Easton Zueger
Thank you for the evaluation a few weeks back, I think you were spot on with some areas of my game, I also appreciate the points I should work on. I plan on using your advice this summer and use the sand dunes as a weekly part of my training. AJ Cooper
"Austin and I listened to the verbal portion and looked at the written evaluation. We enjoyed the feedback and had him take notes on the talk. We will certainly try and incorporate some of the training ideas you mentioned. Some will be easier than others in the current situation, but since we are all home, we will do our best. I have always liked the water workouts and once the weather gets better, we do have an aboveground pool for those ideas. We enjoyed the different workouts and methods you suggest. We look forward to the challenges ahead and really appreciate the time you took to review and outline things for Austin." BJ McNicholas
I have been really pleased to get the scouting report and updates from Mr. Kazuik (Insider Scouting). I found his scouting report to be really interesting, constructive, and informative. I took his advice and immediately starting working on my game using the drills that he provided. He has really gone the extra mile, even giving me tips on how to improve my on ice and off ice performance. In a very short time, I have already seen an improvement in my off ice speed and agility. I really recommend his scouting program. He actually watches your games and provides great feedback based on your strengths and areas needing improvement. I appreciate all of the tips you have provided and hope you are well. Declan Warburton
"The verbal report was very in-depth. The details that were discussed and the tips provided made me think about ways that I can help improve my game on and off the ice. The scorecard provided follow up to the verbal portion and will help me push harder in the areas that I need to focus on to take my game to the next level. I would definitely recommend Insider Scouting to my of my teammates." Brock Lott
"Thanks for the scouting report. The audio review was excellent. I liked the comments on my strengths and the feedback on my areas to develop. You also provided some great tips on some specifics to work on. The general comments on goalie development were very good. The checklist portion was also great. It is was good to see a breakdown of all the skills and my ranking for each one. A few additional comments on some of these would have been great too. Lastly, thanks for the recommendation to read Winning Ugly, I am halfway through the book and even though it is about tennis there are many similarities to hockey and a goalies mental game. Thanks again!" Logan Cunningham
"Insider Scouting far surpassed our expectations in every way possible. I did not expect such an honest and detailed breakdown of my son’s hockey game. The audio podcast is loaded with so much information that I had to replay it again just to take notes! I would highly recommend Insider Scouting to anyone who’s looking for an honest and concise breakdown of their kid’s hockey play. Our feedback is we are blown away with the honesty. I agree with everything mentioned. I’m sure you know things like this but it was priceless playing this for Ethan and watching his face light up! The only feedback I could give is having some introductions in the audio." Ed McEneany
I want to thank you again for the player evaluation. I appreciate all of the time and effort that you put into it. I already started working on some of your suggestions to better my game. I can’t believe how in depth it was. It was awesome! Can’t thank you enough. I wanted to thank you for taking the time and completing this evaluation on Anthony. It absolutely exceeded all of our expectations. It was extremely in depth containing both, the positive and areas that need improvement. You also spent a lengthy amount of time with multiple suggestions, pointers, training aids etc ... all of which he already started to look into. We are extremely happy with the complete evaluation and all of its contents in both, the written and audio portions. I know he listened to every last second of it 2 or 3 times yesterday. What I, as a parent, liked most about the audio portion, was by the way you both spoke. You were “talking” to the player and speaking as if he was directly in front of you. You both made it much more personal by doing it that way. He took it in the same way he would have if he was in the room with you. Again, I thank you for your time, effort, suggestions and opinions. I look forward to watching his development and seeing what the future holds for him. Hopefully we can reconnect in the fall/winter. Anthony Beaulieu
I am very thankful for the information you both provided in the podcast it was really nice to hear some positive feed back as well as some tactics that I need to work on. The off ice training information was really good to hear, very informative. The on ice evaluation was very helpful as now Im looking forward in using this information to better my awareness as a hockey player. Thank you for the time you both put in to my evaluation and hopefully hearing more in the future from you both. Thank you - Kaden Bogden
We really enjoyed the information you provided and have put into place most everything you offered. Thanks for your partnership. Thank you for taking the time to evaluate Michael and offer your professional thoughts on his abilities and the areas he needs to get better with. I highly recommend Insider Scouting. The information provided was thoughtful, accurate, and focused on ways that Michael's game can improve. This evaluation will give a competitive edge to any player who is willing to put in the extra work and listen to advice. If your son's goal is to improve his game, I recommend reaching out for an evaluation immediately. Thanks, Michael Hughes
Thank you for your my scouting report, your assessment and suggestions are valuable and I am taking the in to account for my off season training. The videos have been extremely valuable and have helped me in signing with a EHL team! Thanks, Mercer Twomey
Thank you for this detailed and informative evaluation of Masons game play. To be honest it absolutely exceeded expectations. The written portion is extremely thorough. The audio review was awesome and he has listened to it several times. He ordered the books you suggested immediately and watched some of the clips you recommended that we could find. The thoughtful detail you went into pinpointing both his positive and negative attributes will be so helpful, he felt you had really got to know him, and he can now focus on these areas to really improve and hopefully take him to the next level. Whoever it was talking was very engaging and intuitive. He hopes to incorporate many of your suggestions and when you evaluate him in October again we hope some real progress can be seen. Thank you - Mason Brown
The four page evaluation was clear and showed where I am doing well and what needs to be worked on. The podcast format was informative and I liked how if referenced areas that you had seen me play and what worked and didn't. The support in terms of continued training both on ice and off ice was great and really appreciated. I really appreciated the feedback you guys gave me! it was very honest and straight forward. It was really helpful and will be able to apply the it to my game. The off ice drills you gave me I have already been working on some of them and i'm really enjoying it. I've set up my week so I have 4 days on then one day of yoga. Thanks again. Jackson Payeur
We thank you very much for the feedback. We found it very insightful and the recommendations are worth every penny. We have already instituted the recommendations into Alexander's daily training (expect for on ice due to rink closures). For a young goalie this is the type of information that will continue to improve his game and build on his foundation. The feedback was shared with his goalie coach, Ryan Massa, and he felt it was extremely accurate. The scouts really captured Alexander's current strengths and weaknesses. Again, thank you and I look forward to updating you on Alexander's progress. Thanks, Alexander Scandrol
Thank you Coach Kazuik for the evaluation you did on me. I listened to your feedback. I am working on the exercises you have suggested. The 3 cone drill is now the core of my daily workout regime. I appreciated hearing the things that you think I'm doing well and specific feedback on areas of improvement. This evaluation also put into perspective how important purposeful practice is. I look forward to staying in touch as I create a path to my goals. Thanks, Cam Glonek
The Insider Scouting evaluation provided comprehensive, detailed, and invaluable information about ... (1) developing the right mindset to get to the next level in hockey, (2) analysis of my game play and how to develop and improve my on-ice skills and (3) important and specific fitness and conditioning exercises and routines to become a better all-around player. The evaluation is personal, professional, and in-depth and I strongly recommend Insider Scouting to all players who are looking for quality feedback and advice. Thanks - Sami Douglas-Najem
Thank you for the report. Coming off a year where I was returning from hip impingement surgery on April 1st, 2019, it was great to get the perspective from both of you on my the status of my game. I had a lot of physical and mental hurdles to overcome this past season, and felt I was just beginning to hit my stride in the middle of January. Going through my recovery, I discovered that new voices create more opportunity. I am always looking for more tools to put in my tool box to improve both my training and my game, and the unique perspectives offered in the recorded report gave me just that. I listened to the report several times with my parents and we all agree it was right on track and a definitely a positive experience for taking my training (physical and mental) to the next level. I appreciate your time and you sincere analysis. Thanks again for your time in putting together an informative, supportive and positive report. Rodney Hanson
"I just wanted to thank you both for taking the time to do an evaluation on me. I really appreciate the time you two have spent on the audio you did for me and will take your advice and suggestions. You put a lot of time and effort in it and gave me really good feedback. I would recommend your service/site to anyone looking for help and feedback. Thank you again for your time and work." Lowen Kenyon
"I really appreciate the feedback thank you very much for the drills, tips and what to work on I have already started to implement them into my at home practice." Alex Stephen
"I can tell that your evaluation was very useful for Borna and basicly told us what we were missing - details. It’s good to know on what to be focused for the next seasons, especially if it is told from somebody so experiensed. I know that for some things he already knew that are his weaknesses, for others, it is good to know to develope further. He is a kid who aim for the best and is prepared to do that something extra. I can tell, that we agree with all things which were told." Roman Kopac
"Thank you for the report. I really enjoyed listening to the podcast. It was nice to get 2 points of view on the things I did well and the things I need to focus on. I appreciate the detailed feedback. It is good to know that Higher level teams are looking for some of the skill I have." Job Peters
"I really liked and appreciated what you had to say about me. It was great getting objective feedback from a high end scout. It was a very detailed and thorough analysis covering my skating abilities and defensive play. I really liked how you were able to pick out small things about my game that have a big impact on my performance. Your personal advice on things I need to do to get noticed and get to higher level is so invaluable so thank you very much for that! My goal is to play in the USHL/DI College or WHL and I would love for you to follow my career and give me your insightful feedback along the way!" Jordan Tacheny
"The evaluation was very helpful and helped me figure out some more things I can do to improve my game. They talked about the deeper aspects of my game that I could work on that I didn’t even think about. The drills they presented to me have been working well lately and allow me to mix up my workouts. I’m glad they gave me the feedback they did!" Luke Spinner
"I thought the feedback was really good, I know that the skating portion of my game is not my strongest quality so it was good to hear some other perspectives on it. Also it was a good reassurance that although i came short of my goal this year of aaa that i still might have a career in hockey which eventually my over arching goal is to play NCAA D1 and possibly play in europe but that might be a stretch. Anyway i thought the feedback was really good and i am going to try my hardest to work on the areas you brought up for next season!" Liam Conway
"I appreciated the evaluation and feedback from you to help keep doing the things that I am good at and to work harder on the parts of my game that need improvement. I have space in our shop to shoot pucks and practice skills and puck handling. I am fortunate that I have a full crossFit gym in my parents garage that I am able to use and workout every day to help keep up my fitness. I work out for an hour every day for 6 days a week. I am using the programing designed for me by Top Notch Training out of Weyburn that I used last Summer plus creating own workout plans. I am excited and hopeful to get back on the ice as soon as I can!" Blaze Gutzke
"The feedback that I was able to receive from Insider Scouting is truly a gift. As a young player, I only want to improve my game both mentally and physically. The feedback that I did get will do both for me, and I take the feedback very seriously especially as it comes from folks who have helped so many players along their development. Anytime you are able to get feedback that will make you a better player it is so valuable and I know it will help me develop my game and continue to keep me on my path. Again thank you very much for all the feedback and the time it took to put it all together. I know I will benefit greatly and I will send some videos in the fall so you can see how your feedback helped me. Thank you again!" Brady Schultz
"We felt that the feedback I received through Insider Scouting was accurate. It was spot on describing areas I need to work on such as lengthening my stride and trying to stand up straighter. I will definitely take steps to improve these areas of my game. Presently my off ice conditioning is focused on core strength and working on my explosiveness off the start. This will continue and ramp up during the off season. Excited to finish this season strong and am looking forward to next year." Sam Callahan
Thanks for the updates! Just got through the audio portion. Will definitely look into (your suggestions) and looking forward to the sessions you are offering. I loved how you mentioned (different types of training) - I loved that you mentioned hips, body awareness) and (the work on proper) focus on eyes. Thanks again - it's great reinforcement!
"The evaluation was very well done and it has helped me focus on different areas of my game that I need to improve. I appreciate the honest, thoughtful and unbiased feedback. The report was detailed, thorough and clear. Your advice for me to try to be a full 200 foot player helped me play a more complete game towards the end of the season." Tommy Cronin
"One of the first things that sets this evaluation apart is its format. It is an audio set up like a podcast discussing the strengths and weakness of your kids game. Secondly, the discussion does more than scratch the surface, they not only discuss all areas of the game but in a great bit of detail. They provide lots of feedback about what your kid is doing well and not and how to improve it. I found it interesting and informative, well worth the money. I would definitely do it again. Thanks Garnet! Connie Richards
"I would like to thank you and your guest taking the time to provide me a scouting/player evaluation. I really enjoyed the audio provided that discussed the positives of my game and the areas I should work on. I am very open to new training ideas and better ways to improve my focus on becoming a better goalie. You and your guest have provided some great tips for improving my on ice game and the off ice season training drills that will increase my stamina and current strengths for the new season. I will definitely keep in touch regarding future evaluations and update reports! Mason Tabak
"My thoughts regarding evaluation; It was nice to get the ratings as I now know what a scout sees as this is the first time this has been done for me. It's great how you breakdown the items I need to work on and can help get me to the next level. I would greatly appreciate further comments on areas that would help me develop in all aspects of the game. Thank you again. Riley Joslin
"Your audio file was very specific on evaluating Aiden, it is really good to have him hear this from a second high-quality source as well. This will really make him think on the ice and remember what he needs to improve on in practice and then bring that into this game. Very specific off ice training advice, to get his legs wider for more stability, etc., on the ice. Very impress, we will take you advice over summer." Michael Sotas
All in all, I appreciate the evaluation. I will use the tips given to build my game and become a better player. Lots of accuracy in the evaluation and really helped me open my eyes with areas I need to work on. I have learnt a lot playing a level up in Midget this year and will keep working to be the best player I can be. Looking forward to a summer of improvement and hard work thanks to the help of you guys." Jacob Altomare
"Thank you - firstly, I fee you were accurate on what I do well and your point of view in what I should be working on was very helpful. I appreciate the time you took to assess my game." Cuan Doig
"Hey Garnet, thanks for the in-depth evaluation you did on me. I listened to it multiple times and took your feedback into consideration. I totally agree with the fact that I need to become a better skater. I will work on my explosiveness through some of the exercises you have suggested. I also really appreciated the fact that you guys covered the topic about being deceptive. Having my head up, making quick moves, transitions, head fakes, quick lateral movement, and changing angles when I shoot will allow me to become more deceptive. As the season is ending I will train in the summer, and become stronger to increase my skills on the ice. Thanks for your time. Hope to keep in touch." Brett Boucher
"Garnet from Insider Scouting provides an excellent evaluation of my strengths and weaknesses as a player. I took the knowledge and honesty and applied to my game. It was an honest, thorough, evaluation which captured all areas of my game, I appreciated and took the advice and applied to my game. I think all advice given will only help me continue to grow." Thanks! Ethan Fraser.
"Thanks for your evaluation. It was detailed and informative. It gave a lot of helpful tips to improve his game and level of play. It was also quite interesting to have the podcast with two different points of view in regard to his play and skating ability. Lots of information on stretching and strengthening. Thanks again! Janine Hauk
"The evaluation that you provided was very helpful. It gave Van a great deal of feedback that he will use to help him move forward with his training both on and off ice. Recently, before your evaluation, we were made aware of his hip flexors from Van's physio therapist but didn't fully realize how much his hip flexors affected his game. Since your evaluation, Van faithfully does his exercises at least 3 times daily. Unfortunately, Van's season is over but he did get to play a few games after your evaluation. Before each game he listened to your evaluation and implemented some of your suggestions and we could see a difference in his play. All of the information was great. We only wish we had the evaluation done in October so Van could take the information provided and implement it into his training both on and off ice. We did pass some of the information on to his fitness/conditioning trainer. As mentioned by you and your evaluator regarding the need for more points, the ma jority of Van's role this season was the penalty kill which isn't bad considering he is a young first year player-youngest in the league, which didn't lend itself to accumulating a great deal of points. Going forward Van will continue to work on all areas that require attention. Van looks forward to your evaluation in the fall of next year. We welcome your constructive criticism as we feel it is a definite way for Van to achieve his hockey goals. Feel free to take what you need from this email for your testimonial." Thanks, Kerri Sawlor
"I received my report from insider scouting a couple weeks ago. It consisted of about twenty minutes worth of Garnet speaking about my game and providing some in-depth thoughts, both positive takeaways and things to work on. This was followed up with a report ranking various areas of my game relative to Bantam AAA players. I felt like I was able to take away some things to improve on and that it really helped me make the quick outlet pass in my own zone and was able to create more offense in the games since. I'll be reviewing the assessment again as we enter the playoffs so I can be my best." Gabe Brasil
"I want to thank you for this review of Anthony. You analysis of Anthony was very thorough and informative of what Anthony needs to work on. I like the two-part report. The audio review was great to listen to. It gave me insight on another person's viewpoint of Anthony's game. I went over this review with his coach and we developed a plan that will get Anthony to work on some of the suggestions that were made. It will definitely get him to improve his game. The second part was a grading scale and I see what Anthony needs to work on and where he is strong. He definitely can improve many of the categories on the scale. He's only 14 and still growing. His speed will increase as his legs and core get stronger. Thank again for this great review of Anthony. Anthony and I discussed everything on this report." Vince Cappello
"Overall I found the report to be very helpful. There where attributes/items talked about and recommended that have not been mentioned to me before; (ie. the zorball, specific attributes of specific players to watch, specific exercise/drills to work on). It helped me understand how others (other than my coaches) view my play and where they see areas for improvement in my game that will make me a better hockey player. Everything talked about was; easy to understand, given with an example, put into a hockey context that made sense and provided with a recommendation on how to improve or move forward. I will use this information to grow my game throughout the summer. The feedback wasn’t just good, it was very specific and in detail with recommendations, and I appreciate that a lot." Luca Muscedere
"Thank-you Insider Scouting for providing me with a detailed evaluation. The recommendations, areas of growth needed and specific things to focus on will definitely be something I’ll be working on to improve my game. I want to develop my skills and grow as a player as much as I can. I value your expertise and am excited to get to work. Thank-you for your honesty and all the information you provided for me to improve. Looking forward to pushing myself, the hard work needed and seeing results. I appreciate your time!" Ty Doucette
"I wanted to thank you for the recent scouting report that I received from Insider Scouting. I can see that you put a lot of thought and effort into the report and spent a great deal of time breaking down my game. I appreciated hearing the things that you think I’m doing well, and was also happy to receive some very specific feedback about the areas of my game that I can improve on. You gave me some great things to work on that are making a difference in my performance on the ice. The in-depth audio report also gave me tools for things I can focus on when I’m not on the ice. Thank you again - I really appreciate your time and expertise and would highly recommend this process to my peers." Caleb Bentham
"This was my first exposure to Insider Scouting and I had no expectations on what I would receive but the oral assessment, feedback and scorecard ranking summary was great. Garnet’s assessment touched on areas of my game and abilities that I need to focus on and improve upon and definitely motivate me to work on if I want to get to the next level. I appreciated both constructive criticism, the positive feedback and recognition on the things I do well. I am looking forward to following up with some of Garnet’s development advisors and can’t wait to get into the online development and training workouts. With the abrupt end to this hockey season and any spring development I am glad that I reached out to Garnet and his group and received the feedback and direction to keep working on my game. Many thanks to you and your scouting group." All the best ... Nicholas Wright
"Listening to the feedback in my podcast made me feel proud of myself, but also more determined to do even better. The critical analysis of my both strengths and what I need to improve upon was really motivating. Much of what was said about my game, my play and my skillset were things that I knew deep down, but hearing it in this format made me realize that I definitely need to work on that now. The assessment of my game play was deliberate and not generalized. My family and I really appreciated how valid and appropriate everything was." Bronson Seymour
"As previously stated, I very much liked the evaluation given to me. When listening to the podcast, it was a very comfortable environment. The evaluation was also very smooth and gave me no feelings of sugar coating. The main points being made were things I needed to hear oppose to things I wanted to hear. This evaluation also helped me put into perspective about how important the "little things" are. You guys did a great job making me feel apart of the conversation. Meaning, it was not a lecture, it was an open minded conversation that I was apart of." Charlie Salem
"Thank you for the feedback. I appreciate the time you took to reach out to me and giving me ideas of parts of my game I can work on. I like how you have provided constructive criticism along with positive feedback with examples of ways I can get better and players I can watch to improve my game. I have lots of time now in isolation to work on some of the points that you have given me in my backyard." Carsyn Crawford
"The evaluation was very un-biased, concise, accurate and informative. We did feel that there was considerable time placed in the evaluation and would suggest for those folks looking for a second set of eyes to have evaluation completed they should seek counsel from Insider Scouting." Rupert Mongrain
"Most places give feedback just on a piece of paper with numbers, Insider Scouting also gives a recording where they also explain the different aspects of your game. I thought it was very helpful and gives me actionable things I need to work on in the off-season." Caleb Elfering
"I thought your guys feedback was spot on. I have no complaints and I thought being compared to Lidstrom and Kronwal was a huge compliment. I've always had trouble with my foot work, I'm trying to improve on that aspect of my game. I agreed with every word you guys said about me and happy to hear all the negatives and positives. I'm excited to hear from you again." Rylan Hildebrand
"Thank you for the podcast link and the evaluation chart. I appreciate all of your advice and the time you have both taken to put this together. I look forward to implementing the drills and advice you have mentioned into my training." Sevek Sian
"I thought the evaluation gave an in-depth review of my impact in games, going over my areas of strength and where I need to improve. I feel like the recommendations on how to improve my game were accurate and will definitely help me improve for my next season." Blake Cotton
"I think the feedback I got was great, it was all things I had thought about before and was very helpful. The evaluation chart was very easy to understand and it the whole entire evaluation wasn't biased and was accurate and informative. The podcast was very helpful for me because it gave me things I need to work on and it was the opinions of very smart and experienced people. I could also relate to all the information, once they had mentioned the problems I realized they were weak points in my game and i need to improve them, for example when they talked about gapping up earlier in the offensive zone and holding the blue line more often I realized how often I gave up a zone. It was really a great evaluation and I'm really looking forward to a follow up. Thank you!" Gabriel Pankrat
"I feel that this scouting report allowed me to reflect and learn more about what I need to improve on regarding my game. This has allowed me to focus my workouts and practices on things that were brought up that I need to improve upon. This has provided me with things to work on while I am in the off season which will help me in the upcoming season. Lastly, I think it is important for me to see what professionals such as Garnet have to say about my game, what I do well and what I need to work on. This is amazing feedback and would highly recommend it to others." Thanks again Luke Orr
"I am very fortunate to have Insider Scouting do an evaluation report on me. The breakdown of my game, not just the positive but things I need to work on are one of a kind. It really shows their knowledge of the game and I would highly recommend insider scouting to others players for their expertise and professionalism." Owen Simmons
"Thank you Garnet for your honest evaluation! Garnet was full of praise of what I do well. But more importantly, he offered good constructive criticism of my game and how I could start to work on it immediately. The combo of the audio and written evaluation were very helpful. I know working on the things Garnet tells me will pay off!" Thanks, Tyler Chapman
We were very impressed with how in-depth you went in Landon's evaluation. The audio portion was fantastic and we really liked how you addressed him in it. Very good points and great constructive criticism. The checklist portion was very good as well. Lots of great info on areas of the game he needs to improve on. Very happy that we got this evaluation done by you. Thanks. Graham Hanson.
"Thank you for the follow-up. Everything was very clear and super appreciated. We are super appreciative of the evaluation, and the advice given. I was impressed with the thoroughness of the process and end result of the evaluation. All of the advice, recommendations and praise is appreciated and will be something we keep in mind as Dylan continues to develop. It's great to get someone with your background do you have a set of eyes and ears on the development of such a young player. We look forward to keeping you updated and having you continue to monitor the progress as Dylan progresses as a player and a person." Best regards - Jason Newton
Garnet is the real deal and he is in this for the right reasons! Garnet provides me with professional, thorough and knowledgeable feedback with regards to my game. The best tool I received from him was an hour long full audio assessment which focused on areas to fine tune my game. It was evident Garnet had watched hours or my play, consulted with scouts, former coaches, trainers and other developmental experts to identify areas for improvement and suggested strategies for my continual improvement. Thanks Garnet! Carter Will - OHA Bantam Prep
"I appreciate you taking the time to do this for me. The feedback has been very useful and starting to implement and work on those suggestions/recommendations you made. I'm already into camp mode and working hard to crack an AAA team for next season! The feedback and suggestions were great, very helpful and right on target. Areas that I knew were spots I needed to focus on they solidified with in their report to me. Gave me fun ways to keep fit over the summer, while still working on key areas of my game to get stronger. I want to be the best that I can be and the report will help me out a lot! Thank you again for the report and the checklist that I can work on. Living in a small town I know some players get overlooked and the feedback of what I need to do will help me to stand out. I know this takes a lot of time to do and I appreciate that you did this for me." Ty Stevenson
"I really enjoyed reading and listening to the evaluation I received. It was very honest and complete. There was a lot of information provided that I am sure will help me in my development and future endeavors. Both evaluators gave great pointers on how to improve my game and to make it to the next level. Thank you for your honest and experienced evaluation." Dryden DeMelo
I think the evaluation of my game was pretty accurate. As a player in development its always good to get advice from an outside service and Insider Scouting provides that. From top to bottom the evaluation has given me areas that I need to focus on to get better. Not only can I work on these things on ice but off as well. Brady O'Connor
“I was very impressed with the calibre and level of effort that went into the evaluation report I received. I found the report to be to the point, honest, fair and insightful. It was presented in a well organized and detailed way that allows me to really focus on the aspects of my skills and game that I need to work on to get to the next level. While I had some sense of my strengths, weaknesses and potential, it was very helpful to get such a detailed analysis of where I am at in my development. I wish I had received this constructive type of evaluation and feedback years ago. Garnet's evaluation has given me a sense of what my priorities need to be and some possible paths for me to consider as I look to making it to the next level. Thanks again!” Simon Batista
We really liked the feedback we received - not because it was all good, but because it provided a helpful path from what an objective 3rd party saw that he needed to work on to help get to the next level. We'll definitely consider signing up again after a year or so to see if he's made the necessary adjustments to improve. Thanks, Henry and Bryan Cook
