There are more things that go into making great hockey players besides skill.

OUR AWESOME CLIENTS

Client Testimonials

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:

We had the pleasure of doing business with Doug during the 2018-19 hockey season, my son’s Minor Midget draft year.

His goalie coach recommended Doug at Top Shelf Athletics to shoot some footage of Wade in order to create a video to aide in his exposure going forward. Doug was very polite and professional as he interviewed Wade and his coaches and the process was not intrusive but very detailed and thorough. During this very stressful time, Doug made sure this process did not add to that. Great Job Doug, we highly recommend Top Shelf Athletics for your promotional video footage.

Doug has been a huge influence and has made a big impact on my progression.

Doug makes it easier to believe in myself because of how much he believes in me.

I can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve done and for opening doors for me.

Hunter Godmere

Doug's goal is to help players like me and promote their games.  As a result of the video he made, I had a scouts call to interview me and said they saw the video and really enjoyed it.

The highlight video Doug made definitely helped me promote my game to others, like scouts, coaches and more.

I personally really think the video helped to give a little taste of how I play to everyone.

I would really like to thank Doug for everything he's done for me in past years, for always supporting me and of course for the amazing video he made for me.
