My kid loves Ned Collins and she is loving the game of roller hockey because of his tutoring. I play in the advanced division, and if you’re looking for bloodthirsty hockey, Ned won’t have it. Safety is his priority. There are some dynamite players who can pick on his style of course, but he is consistent. To be threatened by […]
