Testimonials

“Coach Frenchy is the most passionate coach about the game of Hockey that I have ever been around. His excitement and motivation is contagious for the kids and pushes them to reach their goals. Pierre’s knowledge about the game is implacable and a real student of the game. He never stops studying. Whether it’s about an opponent or about a drill he wants to present on the ice. His attributes about coaching the game of hockey and attention to detail is top notch but what really separates him from other coaches is how he puts everything together (organization skills)”.

“In all of the years Donald has played ice hockey, he has never had a coach like Coach Frenchy. Coach Frenchy is a full time professional ice hockey coach, trainer and mentor. He brings a genuine love and respect for the sport that is unparalleled!”

Donald Tuckwood

“Coach Frenchy has been by far the most influential coach our son has had. Since starting with Frenchy two summers ago doing private lessons he has made the highest level of hockey starting with being selected for first year squirt A. Frenchy’s coaching by far surpasses any type of large group camp. Watching 30 kids do circle drills just wasn’t working. His attention to detail and gaining trust in his skaters is unbelievable. As parents we always appreciated the counseling Frenchy gave to us whenever asked. Best coach out there”.

“If you’re looking for a coach that will make an Positive Impact on game choose Coach Frenchy. I was so fortunate to have Pierre Deschesnes guide my son through one hockey season. Little did I know how impactful the journey would be for both my son and I (Assistant Coach). Without a doubt Frenchy is best leader inside the “room” I have ever witnessed in my 50 year hockey career as a player and coach. His is a not only is a master motivator and great coach, he delivers life lessons that change lives. Pierre’s passion for the game and life is contagious and will make a positive life impact on your player”.

“Although I have only known Coach Frenchy for a few months I can certainly say great things about him. It is obvious that he has a lot of talent and experience with playing hockey as well as coaching hockey. His ability to properly present that knowledge to my son has shown a big improvement in his game already and the season has just barely started! Coach Frenchy’s love for hockey to his want to teach others shows every time he hits the ice”.

Capella Flaherty

“There is only one way to describe Coach Frenchy… Passionate. His passion for the game of hockey is evident in everything he does, whether practice planning, running dryland workouts or game prep. His passion is present in his interaction with his players, no matter if he is on the ice, on the bench, or on the street. His passion is infectious, while he holds his players to his high standards while they are learning the game he loves so much, and shows them the path to be successful: hard work, creativity, love, and a no fear attitude. There are no shortcuts. He maintains a good balance between skill work, system work and just plain fun, and I cannot recommend him enough, having seen what he has done for not only my own son, but his teammates, and team as a whole. He rekindled a love for the sport that previous coaches had somewhat eroded, and for that I am thankful”.

 “This is my son’s favorite camp that he does.  This is his third year taking a camp with Coach Frenchy, and he always gets so much out of it.   I particularly liked that the kids got to shoot on the goalies-  it makes for good practice for everyone.”

Vail, CO

 “Excellent camp!!  By far one of the best my son has participated in.  His words!”

Tampa, FL

 “My sons enjoyed the camp.  I liked the fact that you concentrated on skating and drills, and had only one scrimmage on the last day of camp.  Scrimmaging is fun, but I send my kids to camp to be better skaters and puck handlers.  We will be back next year”.

Vail, CO
