Testimonials to Coach J!

"My daughter played for Todd on the Bridgewater Lady Bandits. Earlier in the year she participated in his clinic. Seeing him work with her, we could tell he was not only a great teacher, but a constant learner. The commitment he made to the team was more than any of the parents or the players expected. He was not only there for the practices and games, but managed off-ice conditioning and classroom walk-through sessions. He pushed the girls to their personal best in a positive way! He gave us much more than our money's worth. Todd is a very dedicated coach and has a promising coaching future. He also is the best coach Chelsea's ever played for".
--Michelle Keach (Mother of Bridgewater Bandits U16 Goaltender Chelsea Keach)


"Todd Jacobson was a valuable member of the Stoughton High hockey staff for several years. Todd coaches hockey with a passion that is unequaled! during this time, I had him coach the forwards and the progress they made was impressive. He understands all aspects of the game, is creative in designing practice drills that work the needs of the players, and was totally dedicated to the program. In addition to coaching the varsity forwards, he was the head j.v. coach, coaching many players who had little experience. these j.v. teams improved every season, from start to finish. In closing, it was with mixed emotions I gave Todd a glowing recommendation to coach at Notre Dame Academy. I hated to lose such a valued member of the Stoughton High hockey family, but realized he deserved his shot at a head coaching job. Our loss will prove to be Notre Dame Academy's gain".
--Dan Mark (Stoughton High School's Varsity Ice Hockey Coach for over 20 years)


"Todd Jacobson is one of the rising stars in women's hockey coaching!"
--Dennis Chighisola (New England Hockey Institute and CoachChic.com)


"I have been associated with Coach Todd Jacobson for over a decade. He
is an excellent teacher, motivator and strategist. He is highly
knowledgeable in off ice preparations as well. I would recommend Coach
Jacobson to any program regardless of the level".
--Gary Jewell (Former Youth Hockey Coach and Veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom)


New Hockey Website!
