My name is Nick Skerlick and I specialize in Hockey IQ, motivation, and player development. As a rising junior at Lebanon Valley College, I major in/study Business/ psychology, while pursuing my love for the game. Being a student athlete is challenging, but it has been an ultimately rewarding experience, allowing me to thrive in my natural element.
With over 4 years of coaching experience, I have molded players across the country, while elevating my individual game. I played five years of Junior hockey, earning an EHL regular season championship with the Philadelphia Little Flyers. The team holds the all time best record at 38-3-3 in the league. In 2012, I participated in America’s showcase, playing for Team NJ. As a self motivated player, I have always analyzed my own performance and searched meticulously for areas of improvement. I turned that strategy into action when I began assisting others with their development. I instructed Camps at Planet Hockey LLC. all over the U.S. and have coached with The Northern Vermont Wildcats Spring program. I pride myself in having an eye for talent, playing a key role as a scout for the Philadelphia Little Flyers, Potomac Patriots, and several other programs.. With a proven track record of success, I have moved over 25 players by age 22, to Prep school or junior hockey.
Throughout my career, hockey has been an essential part of my development as a person on and off of the rink. Through unwavering dedication and discipline, I was able to play at a high level, constantly challenging myself to push my boundaries. When I reflect on my journey, I not only think about my passion for the sport, but the memories along the way. I have cultivated great relationships with people in the field, including Rocky Russo (NAHL Scout/Head Coach of the Little Flyers), Lincoln Flagg (East Coast Eagles), Dustin Good (Tilton School), Don Parsons (NCAA Division 3) and Jamie Herrington (USHL/NTDP). My journey has also been extremely unique, enabling me to travel the country and because of hockey, I was able to tour 47 of 50 states. These invaluable memories have changed my life and I hope that by the end of our program, you will also benefit from a diverse experience, while bringing your game to the next level.
