Reviews: Hockey Made Easy

I recently purchased Hockey Made Easy and find that it's easy to read, has a lot of great information, and definitively improves my knowledge and coaching. Thanks for putting together such a wonderful book. Hope you have a great holiday season.

"I highly recommend the purchasing of ‘Hockey Made Easy’. If every Minor and Youth hockey player understood the basic content of this great instructional manual, it would make their transition to Junior Hockey programs that much easier”.

- Coach Wilf Johnston, Junior ‘A’ Brockville Braves


“I recently had the opportunity to look over your book Hockey Made Easy, which is in its fourth edition. I read your first edition when I was in minor peewee and found it very informative. The section on defensive play was helpful to me and made me understand better the role of defensive play in the game.

I am glad to see that you continued to improve the book as it is a great tool for young hockey players. The diagrams are easy to understand but cover all the basics necessary for young players who wish to improve their game.”

- Richard Power, 1st pick (3rd overall) of the Owen Sound Attack, OHL)


Hi John

I would be very happy to give you feed back. I coach a Tier 4 Atom team. Prior to this year I had only coached novice and initiation and had not played any hockey growing up other than outdoor unorganized shinny.

My son entered Atoms this year which put us in a league where every point counts. We ended up in 2nd place and missed first place by 1 point. (needed to work a little harder in a couple tied games) your manuals helped me develop the type of system that best suited our team and also helped me identify what system the other teams were using as well so we could defend against it. we also won 2 of the 3 tournaments we were in this year.

The best part of this season, with your manuals help, I created a development plan for my son, and he has now been invited to try out for a couple of AAA spring hockey teams. it will be a big jump for him but he is now starting to crave playing hockey every day and we hope he continues to have fun and try hard. I am a little concerned that playing an additional season may burn him out, but we will leave that decision up to him.

Thanks again, your manuals made this a very successful season for me and our team.


“I have read your book 'Hockey Made Easy' and think it is an excellent instructional manual for this age group.  The teaching of these basic skills and systems will prepare players for our junior programs…”

- Hugh Craig, General Manager Smiths Falls Jr 'A' Bears


“Thank you, John Shorey, for this masterpiece called Hockey Made Easy! Of the many instructional materials available to help our youngsters, this is far and away the most useful and comprehensive I've seen. 

I was astounded at how much my 8-year-old's hockey performance improved after one session of sitting together reading.

Hockey Made Easy will be our most valuable resource as we proceed through the years ahead. It is a must for the library of all players, parents and coaches.”

- Bradley Sanger, IP Instructor, Novice Coach and Hockey Dad


“Thanks for all the tips on the web, as well as your book.  I put it to good use this year, and although we did not have a successful season in the win/loss column, the kids improved their own abilities, which is more valuable than any win. 

 It was evidenced by the fact that we placed four players on ‘AAA’ teams this summer...quite an accomplishment!

Again, thanks for all your tips.  Your book will be utilized heavily again next season.”

- Pat Andreae, Marshfield Youth Hockey Association, Marshfield, WI, Squirt ‘A’ Head Coach


“My grandson is playing peewee "A" hockey and I loaned my copy of your book to him.  It's helping him so much I hate to ask him to return it. Please send me another copy.  I have a lot of time on my hands now that I'm on my own.  My cheque for $29.90 is enclosed.  Next year I plan to get serious about coaching again. Many thanks.”

- Keith Beatty, Brampton, Ontario

“Thanks for the book and the tips. Excellent job. The book is the clearest and most concise I have ever read I am posting the flyers promoting the book at a local rink and recommending the book to anyone who wants to improve their skills.”

- Mike Babiak, Brookline, Mass, U.S.


“I just want to tell you that I ordered your e-book and received it within hours (on a weekend too, thank you so much). I have perused it and I have to tell you that I consider it the BEST USE of MONEY I have EVER spent in sports (and I've played a lot of sports).

I actually think it may be the best purchase of my life value-wise (and I am 34!). I am not kidding.

Thank you for pulling so much knowledge together in such a clear format, and for making it available at such an awesomely affordable price. I will recommend it whenever I can. You made my day, BIG TIME! Thanks Again.

I can't wait to implement the knowledge with the girls' team I coach, and for my own development in the game.”

- Ty Perry, Vancouver, BC

“Hockey Made Easy' is an outstanding manual that I highly recommend to anyone wishing to learn more about the sport.  I wish we'd had it when our family first got involved.”

- Jim McMurry associated with the Screamin' Eagles class ‘C’ club in Mauston, Wisc, U.S.

“I highly recommend this book to minor hockey players, parents, and coaches as a valuable tool in their hockey endeavors.”

- Tom Elliott, President Ottawa District Minor Hockey Association


“I have read John Shorey's book 'Hockey Made Easy' and found it very informative and easy to read.  The way it explained the different tactics and their purpose was easy to understand.  I believe this book would be very useful as a coaching tool for peewee age groups and younger. I will recommend this book to my peewee 'A' team this coming season…”

- Bobby Orr Jr, PeeWee 'A' Rep Team Coach BMHA

“After seeing John Shorey's 'Hockey Made Easy' manual, I decided to put my own child in his program.  I would recommend his program for any child, coach, or parent to assist in the development of better hockey skills…”

- Greg Williams, Skills and Development Coordinator, South Grenville Minor Hockey


“I just wanted to let you know how much your 'Hockey Made Easy' manual and clinic helped my son's hockey development this past season.  His knowledge and overall play especially his passing, shooting and scoring improved dramatically and he was the top goal scorer on his team...”

- Rob Milliken, Novice Minor Hockey Parent


“I encourage the use of the 'Hockey Made Easy' instructional manual as a preliminary teaching tool for all minor hockey players and coaches in the 5 to 12 year old age categories…”

- Armand Roy, Novice House League Coach
