“I started training with James when I was 15, at the time I was playing ice hockey Internationally in my age group and I was starting to be scouted to turn professional. This meant having to play against men much bigger and stronger than I was.
James was my strength and conditioning coach for four years developing my strength, speed, agility and conditioning to compete in the professional men’s game and also stand out on the international stage by captaining the national team.
Heading to university I was considering opportunities to study in the US on an ice hockey scholarship which James helped me prepare for.
I am currently captain for Basingstoke Bison, the youngest in the clubs professional history and having James as a coach as a young athlete helped me progress a lot faster than my peers and was and has been a great foundation for my playing career”.
