Rob,

Thank you again for the lesson yesterday. I don’t think I have ever seen Henry leave the rink so happy.  He is excited about taking weekly lessons with you.

Rob,

I wanted to give you some kudos for last night. I hung around and watched and thought you guys did a fantastic job. My son got some extra help from one of the coach’s and got in the car so excited. He said skills were really hard but had a blast and learned a ton.

We have been with Express sine 2007 and your skills are by far the best around! Really appreciate the extra help and focus on the most important part of the game.

Just wanted to show my appreciation for all you’ve done for me over the years. Attending your hockey camps growing up, I gained a lot of hockey knowledge and experience. This enabled me to eventually accomplish one of my dreams in being invited to attend the Boston Bruins training camp.

Not only am I thankful for what you’ve done for my hockey career but appreciate the relationships I’ve built in the process. Thank you so much for all you’ve done for me.

I played two years for the Walpole Express and spent time both as a student and a teacher. Power skating is critical in the development of young hockey players and my experience with the RB Hockey School was one of the best I have gone through. Rob cares about each kid personally which is something that not many clinics can say. He pushes you to do your best and is always behind you 100% which is why he has such a great relationship with his players. If there is one thing that can push a player to the next level, it is their ability to skate better than their opponent. Coach Rob’s curriculum will set kids up for success and the only way it does not work is if you do not show up. Thank you for everything Coach Rob.

Rob, I have to say that it was my two years with you that created my foundation as a player and a person. Not only did your coaches engrain the necessary skills and work ethic needed for me to be successful on the ice, but pushed me to be a better person off the ice. I have been lucky enough to play Prep School hockey and Division 1 hockey, and I know that your organization does it right. Thanks for making me successful on and off the ice.

Being able to develop my skills and skating abilities in some of Rob’s camps when I was young is one of the reasons I have gotten to where I am today. Rob was great in teaching me the fundamentals of the game that are habits of mine still today. This along with playing on an NEH team gave me the extra practice and competition I needed to make it to the next level.

Coach Rob I want to thank you for all the effort and time you put into me to grow not only as a hockey player but as a person to. From the endless ice time to the great power skating practices. It really helped my game as a goaltender and made me alot more well rounded on the ice and really developed my crease movement. I had a great experience playing for the Walpole Express. It helped shape the player I am today. I still remember the first phone call I had with you when I told you I was ready to commit to the Express. Your response was “chicka pow”. I will remember that for the rest of my life. I had a great experience with you and the Walpole Express organization. I will never forget it. Thanks for everything!

Hello! How are you? As you may remember me from growing up, my name is Michaela Tosone. Currently, I am a freshman at UMass Amherst. At school, I play on the women’s ice hockey team and we recently finished in 2nd at the ACHA Division 1 Nationals.

When I think back on summers growing up, my first thought is immediately all of the memories that I made at RB Hockey School. Your summer camps not only greatly contribute to the reasons for the success I attained in my hockey career, but also to the reason I loved the game so much. So, when thinking about a summer job, there is nothing I would love more than working for RB Hockey school.

Coach Barletta, I wanted to take a moment to thank you. As my first coach you taught me the most critical skills I needed to learn, from how to skate on the outside rink to the game of hockey itself. Your positive reinforcement and your patient instruction helped me develop into the player I am today.

The year I played in (with Rob) really helped me develop as a hockey player. Having access to a great coach (Adam), expansive ice time and well-organized skills sessions was really beneficial and set me on a course for success.
