My daughter Brooke came to Jim looking for individual training to help develop her skills prior to taking the next step in tryouts for her first rep team. During this time Jim worked diligently with her to help in achieving success with this goal. Jim pushed her to see her real potential and the results have been incredible not only on the ice, but academically as well. Brooke continues to push her limits to experience the rewards of her hard work. Although classes and camps were extremely challenging, she loved, and continues to look forward to future sessions. Jim you were truly instrumental in helping Brooke achieve her goals and for that we are extremely grateful for your continued commitment.

Jim and his team has been a valuable asset not only to my son, but to the many young hockey players that I have directed through his camps through coaching at a rep level. As a coach I see significant improvement to the mechanics of every hockey player that attends the development camps. As a father I see the excitement and exuberance of every child when they are participating in the sessions. Additionally the positive encouragement on the ice from all the professional coaches, and the self-realization that the drills are directly translating to better play and the growth of individual skill sets of the children participating is extremely gratifying. Vital Hockey skills utilizes the biology of the body and creates a direct co-relation to the science of hockey to maximize the learning and development of its students. It is always a pleasure to work with Vital Hockey

Vital Hockey Skills is by far the top hockey training school in my books! My son has been working with Jim for a little over a year now. He has improved his edges, foot speed and most importantly his confidence! Jim has motivated him to become a better hockey player and instilled in him a work ethic beyond expectation! I have seen a difference and I wouldn't change a thing! Thanks a million!

Jim Vitale has been a "VITAL" part in both my boys hockey development over the past two years. His technical expertise and insurmountable hockey knowledge has been greatly noticeable in both their skating and overall hockey skills. Both boys always look forward in attending his camps and private sessions since he motivates them to always push past their limits, in an effort to be their best. Not only does he show great passion on the ice when he is teaching, but he does it effortlessly with humour and positive reinforcement. As a result of his true dedication, my boys not only have greatly improved their skills, but more importantly he has instilled in both of them a greater sense of self confidence both on and off the ice. Thanks Jim!

My son came to Jim for a few lessons to improve his skating. The overall experience, as well as the result, was outstanding. Jim’s coaching techniques were effective and he varied things very well in order to maintain focus. Most important to us was that Jim is great communicator, and his energy, positive reinforcement, and passion for the game were a great fit with my son. He loved attending the lessons and was provided a great foundation from which to build. Thank you Jim -
