    I have been training with Sean Brown through Breakout Hockey since 2014. Sean is an excellent trainer and has really helped me develop a lot of the skills I have needed to be successful at every level. The fact that he is a defencemen has certainly been a benefit for me in that position. Sean is very knowledgeable with the game of hockey and is a true professional to work with. I look forward every spring to the start of my training with him. He is not only a great trainer but a role model to me as well.

    Thought we would send you a note to let you know how thoroughly pleased we have been with the on ice training regimen you have imparted on our son Nick Bowman. Over the last 3 years that Nick has been with you, we have watched his skills improve substantially, allowing him to compete at the highest level in the sport he loves. More specifically, when he showed up to Oil Kings training camp this past summer, he was thoroughly prepared for the pace and speed of that level. Almost as importantly, your encouragement and feedback instilled a high level of confidence in his game, a vital ingredient for success. Again, thanks for your encouragement and professionalism!

    I have skated with Sean Brown's Breakout Hockey for the last 4 summers. Sean has helped me take my game to the next level. He helped me improve my individual skill as well as my confidence. Sean's drills show his hockey knowledge and NHL experience and they translate well into game play. He creates a positive atmosphere and makes me push my limits. I highly recommend Breakout Hockey!

    Sean is a fantastic coach for kids of all ages and skill levels. His ability to recognize when a drill isn't working well and adapt on the fly is what sets him apart.

    Thank you for providing an environment that allows our son to continue to develop and grow no only with increased skill level and hockey knowledge, but with the tools needed to become a better person. Each camp and each spring season we see tremendous growth in our son and we also know that he is filled with encouragement, determination and a positive attitude that can only come from great leadership. Every time something comes to an end, Bryton is asking when he gets to be with Coach Sean next...thank you!

    Logan and Keaton have been attending Sean's summer and winter camps for many years now. It has all come full circle for Logan being drafted by the Edmonton Oilkings. This is do to in large part to the on ice training with Sean Brown as well as the knowledge bestowed on the kids from Sean's years of being a Professional. He has helped Logan prepare like a pro, act like a pro and be a humble person along the way.
