‘Bloodline Hockey and ‘The Parent Trap’ was created to provide a lifeline of support to youth hockey players and their families,” said Marisa Malts, CEO for Bloodline Hockey, “This landscape is so tough to maneuver and the need for mindset education is paramount. While most coaches are focused on the physicality of the game, Coach Vinny was drawn to the way we can use sport to enhance emotional intelligence and hone in on life skills.”

“Most youth players are not going to make it to the NHL.” said Coach Vinny Malts, Bloodline Hockey Founder, “That said what all families of youth athletes can focus on is the quality of life experiences we are providing to these kids. They will all be a pro at life and my program sets out to ensure they have the right tools to take life on, whether they want to be a professional in hockey, or a professional in life. Our program focuses on thought, play and time management.”

“We enrolled in your program when our son was 12. We have witnessed first hand just how powerful your mindset program is! He has made leaps and bounds regarding his self awareness, confidence & focus. It has transformed his as a player on & off the ice.” Says Susan Danziger, hockey mom and Bloodline client.
