What is NTC?

Our VISION: To be the world’s complete solution in body, mind, spirit & emotional development for athletes in hockey.

Our MISSION: To teach athletes to be confident and great by mentoring, inspiring and leading them through our Pillars of Greatness, Skating Treadmill, On Ice and Off Ice instruction, customized testing protocols, showcase events, and virtual coaching programs.

     Caring: Show compassion, understanding and dedication
     Excellence: Committed to sharing & delivering quality
     Integrity: Lead ethically and morally
     Enjoyment: Have fun being of service
     Helpful: Provide beneficial resources
     Gratitude: Thankful for all

Our WHY:  

“When you believe in you as much as you want others to believe in you, success finds you” were the words NTC Founder Dan Blackburn told himself while struggling to reach his dreams.

Dan enjoyed coaching hockey and helping others. He identified the importance of family after growing up in a broken environment with an alcoholic family. He hit rock bottom himself when he ended up jobless with no savings, no business experience, struggling in personal relationships and getting NO business support from family and friends.

Taking his passion for hockey and helping youth, Dan started NTC (National Training Centres) in 1998. He built it on the foundation: to teach athletes how to realize their greatness already existing within them and to help them reach their goals and dreams. Dan knew first hand that athletes can quickly lose their drive as fear steps in and eventually stop them in their tracks.

A Pillar to NTC’s foundation is Family. Each athlete is welcomed and cared for with a heart-centered appreciation. At the same time they are challenged to go beyond what they know as their current beliefs of themselves and what’s possible. We succeed when our athletes succeed… It's what fuels us.
