Mandy McClune, Belfast (Mother of Dan)

My two sons, aged 13 and 9, have taken up ice hockey as a hobby. Dan, the youngest boy, wanted to be a goalie from day one and Nathan took him under his wing immediately. Nathan is there every week putting the kids through their paces, supporting and encouraging them, dedicated to honing their skills and increasing their stamina. I continue to be impressed by his commitment to these young people and his eagerness for them to reach their maximum potential. The training is tough yet at the same time always exciting and great fun. I have been stunned by the improvement in Dan’s ability after only a handful of coaching sessions with Nathan.
