Who are we?
Nick Parillo and his professionally experienced staff have been developing elite level players with intense total hockey training programs. The goal has always been to assist players in developing the skills and abilities that will be needed for a higher level of competition for today and for the years in the future through enhanced training and discipline.
Elite level players that continue to advance are those who are willing to make sacrifices to address their deficiencies and accept the challenges of self improvement. HPD embraces these players and will address the areas in need of improvement and teach players how to thrive and showcase their strenghts.
– “Go beyond merely dreaming and planning and speculating about the ideal way to reach your goal, make use of whatever you have available to get it done.”
Derek played 4 years in the OHL and then 13 years in the minor leagues between the ECHL and AHL. After his professional playing career he went on to coach professional hockey for 4 years.
