Chicago Romans Hockey Club is excited to announce a new partnership with Goodman Elite Training.
As you may know, scheduling performance training for our student athletes around rink scheduling, school activities, and the personal training the athletes already do at school or with other clubs has proven to be a little bit of a challenge for CRHC. Yet, we have received feedback from coaches, parents, and players that this is a value-add service that the club should look to improve and offer. Beginning this season, CRHC is offering boys and girls off ice performance training.
If you are interested in participating in a season long training with Goodman Elite, please email Peter de Jong at firstname.lastname@example.org and list the name of player, their phone number, and email address.
