"As a chaperone on the trip to Queenstown, New Zealand, I had an unique opportunity to watch my son interact with his friends, play hockey and be challenged as he soaked in other cultures. It was an amazing adventure which allowed me to build a deeper bond with my son during an unforgettable experience. The people of New Zealand and their beautiful land are spectacular. Coach Boe's program operates very smoothly. If you have the ability to go, you cannot miss this."

"I cannot thank Boe Leslie enough for inviting my son to participate in the 2016 New Zealand Hockey School This was the trip of a lifetime. Not only did Boe travel to New Zealand to provide expert hockey instruction to the youth hockey players in Queenstown, but he also created a unique and exciting cultural exchange program for the ten boys from the United States he took on the trip. With Boe’s excellent coaching, the New Zealand Hockey School provided my son with the opportunity to learn new skills and refine his hockey game. My son was also immersed in the culture of New Zealand and Boe spent off ice time showing the boys the sights of the country. Boe is great with kids, extremely knowledgeable, an excellent hockey coach and he makes hockey fun! My son is extremely fortunate to be coached by Boe Leslie and the trip to New Zealand is one he will never forget! Boe - you are truly the best!"

"Roscoe loved his time in NZ, so much so that he went back a year later for the whole of summer! Great time and great organization. Highly recommend it."

"Coach Boe's cultural/hockey exchange was an incredible experience for my son. This program was so much more than playing hockey and working on skills. Having the opportunity to interact with different boys and families from another culture was a once in a lifetime experience. Boe was extremely knowledgable and organized. His daily updates made me feel like I was right there with them. The boys couldn't have had a better guardian. His passion for the sport of hockey and the boys translated into every detail of the trip. Thank you Coach for memories that will last a lifetime."

"Boe is a phenominal ice hockey coach and mentor for hockey players of all ages. After knowing and working with Boe for well over ten years, I can confidently say that Boe made an enormous impact on our son Jay who is presently 16 years old and attends Gilman School in Baltimore. Boe's constant support directed Jay's desire to improve and develop on and off the ice as a team player and overall athlete. Boe's coaching style is incredibly well balanced and he encourages players to give him their best with a firm, steady hand. Boe offers tremendous experience for hockey players at any level and can improve anyone's game. When I asked Jay about Boe recently, he said "Boe cares and has been a great teacher". Jay gradually saw improvement on the ice and learned how to pursue his desires. Hockey has taught Jay a great deal but Boe made a life long impression on him and all of our family. Boe is an outstanding person and we are thankful for his talents and gifts."

"My son has attended Boe's summer and fall camps for each of the past 4 years as he transitioned from Mite to Squirt to Peewee. The level of instruction that he received during these sessions has contributed to my son's skating ability, his knowledge of the game and his enjoyment for the game of hockey. As a parent, I have been continually impressed by Boe and his staff for not only their excellent instruction, but for the professionalism they demonstrate in how they run their instructional camps."
Mike Rizzo, Parent, New York, NY USA
"My son (Spencer) loved your summer hockey camp. This was his first ever summer sports camp, so we were a little concerned that he might not like it. On the first day he was excited to see some of his friends from the Baltimore Stars hockey team, as well as some of the Stars coaches. Having familiar faces there really put him at ease. When he came home from the first day of camp, he was already asking us to enroll him next year. Throughout the week he enjoyed all of the activities, and all of the camp counselors were great. By the end of the week we noticed a big improvement in his hockey skills. He will be back again next year for sure!"
