We have been attending DCHS since our goaltender first put on his goalie skates. The initial draw to the school was most certainly the name recognition and the option, right here at home, to have our goalie work with and interact with Stanley Cup Champions. But from our initial registration to the first sessions on the ice, we knew this experience would be a special hockey memory. The school puts a strong emphasis on the complete athlete - on ice, off ice and away from the arena. They don't just talk about discipline, professionalism, character, tenacity, dedication and passion for the game, every member of the coaching and development team lives these values everyday at camp. You couldn't ask for a stronger coach, mentor, teacher and leader than Jim Bedard. His love for the goalie position and the game is infectious and he manages to teach a wide variety of ages at a level that they all develop, grow and enhance their skills. He expects every goalie to work towards their best and gives each one an opportunity to show leadership on the ice. When you watch him interact with his goalies you can see how much he loves his job, the game of hockey and the development of young goaltenders. He approaches his drills with energy and enthusiasm and expects the same from his students. Our goalie has learned so much from Jim, much of it about life in the net, but he has gained many more skills he will use more broadly in life. Thank you to Jim, his assistants over the years and the entire DCHS family for the opportunity to be a part of such a professional experience. Can't wait for year 10!
