Testimonials


Frank is a dedicated, skilled, and passionate developer of youth hockey players. There are a lot of choices when selecting a skills instructor. Frank's excellence lies in his ability to connect with the athlete . His disposition makes the elite players push harder because they know he truly cares. Players who may need some work quickly improve because of Frank's innate ability to simplify the complex. During my 15 years on the strength/conditioning side of development I've yet to see a skills coach with progressions and regressions for every drill with the efficiency of Frank. Lastly, and this is something often overlooked. Former students run up to Frank whenever they see him at area rinks with genuine excitement to see him. He impacts young people lives in more than just hockey. Terry Pratt Founder Innovative Hockey Training.

I firmly believe Frank Furdero is the best skills instructor in the metro Detroit area. I've personally referred a number of my players and family members to Frank. He has the ability to teach and communicate any skill; skating,shooting, puck handling, play making, so his students understand "the why and the how" to execute. His communication and ability to get through to young players is uncanny. Whether it's young hockey players or older players (midget, junior, college, pro); Frank Furdero will make them better. Most importantly, the players will enjoy the hard work they put in with Coach Frank.

I've know Frank Furdero from his junior days as a player. His experience, knowledge and dedication to the game and his students is phenomenal. Any parent looking private instruction and progress for their Son or Daughter, should definitely call Frank.

Working with Frank has benefited me in so many ways. He helped transform my game into a faster, more skilled style. The things that I learned when on the ice with Frank has directly translated into games and given me the confidence to try new things. Overall, training with Furdero's Elite Ice Hockey Training has made the jump to the next level much easier for me and propelled me forward as a player.

As a parent and player we look for teacher's who are passionate about what they're teaching and can explain how and why you're learning a specific skill. As long as I've known Frank he's the type of teacher we look for in a skills instructor. Not only does he explain and demonstrate the how's and why's but the personal interest Frank gives to each student makes me as a coach and parent very proud that Frank works with my players. You can see the excitement in the players when they get ready for a lesson or just see him around the rink.

As a fellow coach of Frank's I've been extremely impressed with his ability to identify little details in players; for example skating stride, stickhandling, shooting and game awareness. Frank's ability to identify and help correct the performance has help our players become better performers in a shorter period of time.

Frank has a passion for not only playing the game but teaching players to be better. The players Frank has worked with over the years have shown great improvements.

At the core of Frank’s success is his understanding of age appropriate on-ice development. His ability to appropriately communicate the teachable skills enables the player to grasp what is being taught and apply to their game…
