Neil instructs at many of the Inside Edge camps and is easily one of the best instructors in the area. He has an uncanny ability to explain important but often overlooked elements of the game. His insight is often times a significant contributor in having some of our athletes take major strides forward. A powerful skater with excellent edge work, Neil is able to break down complex skills into much more simple, easy to understand components. We’re very lucky to have Neil whenever he is on the ice.
Calvin is one of the goaltending instructors at Inside Edge. He has tremendous knowledge of the position and strong skating ability.

Pat is another of our goaltending instructors at Inside Edge. He is an explosive, agile goalie who understands situational play and the specific save selections necessary to succeed all the way to the collegiate level.

Jeff often instructs at our summer camps and focuses on shooting, stick handling, and off ice training. His work in our camps is beneficial for both the athletes learning how to shoot and the goaltenders who want to try and stop him.
