‘Bloodline Hockey was created to provide a lifeline of support to youth hockey players and coaches” 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.”

“Although I was familiar with the term mindset, I didn’t really know what it meant. That changed with the Bloodline Hockey Coaching Certification course. Coach Vinny Malts has assembled a highly professional, thorough, mindset education program. The 12-week program is equivalent to taking a college semester course. The course made a significant impact in all areas of my life, coaching, personal and professional. I recommend it highly.”-Tim Taylor, Youth Hockey Coach
