I’ve had the honor and privilege to work with Bud4hockey for the last two (2) years. Bruce has played a major role with his support and expertise, into growing the game of hockey for the New York Junior Rangers Youth Development.
Bruce Fowler, owner and Instructor for Buds4hockey, runs a well-organized and structured program. His passion and dedication to develop hockey skills, both on and off the ice, is beyond reproach. Bruce’s passion for the game and his communication with both parents and players is impressive.
I’ve personally witnessed players starting off from day #1 on the ice with the Learn to Play Junior Rangers, and with his help and structured lessons, go on to advance into other hockey programs. (Ex. In-House hockey and Travel Hockey)
Being an Instructor for the NY Junior Rangers for the past 5 years, coaching hockey since 2002 at multiple levels, and now being a USA Hockey Level 5 Master of Instruction (educating new coaches attaining their certification to coach), I can tell you, Bruce brings so much to the game of hockey. I’ve even had multiple opportunities to learn from him.
Anyone who wants their child to experience the growth of the game, I highly suggest you give Buds4hockey a try. You will not be disappointed.
Pete Gianatiempo, Hockey Program Lead Instructor
Bruce Fowler and B4H have been a valuable asset not only to my son, but to the many young hockey players that have progressed through his camps and clinics. The intention is to provide development while maintaining the excitement and exuberance of each child while participating in the sessions.
Bruce is a strong believer in positive encouragement on the ice and the self-realization that the drills are directly translating to better play and the growth of individual skill sets of the children participating is extremely gratifying.

I have known and worked with Bruce for 8 years. Throughout that time I have seen his brand expansively grow throughout the New York and New Jersey area. He and his coaches are reliable, knowledgeable and have a strong foundation set in place to help hockey players grow, especially at the youth level. I would highly recommend Bruce to anyone looking to develop their game.
