Ron Davidson played on Canada's national team at the Lake Placid Olympics in 1980. He has directed ice hockey camps, schools and clinics in Canada, the U.S. and throughout Europe, and he has directed schools and clinics for the NHL's Phoenix Coyotes and Ottawa Senators. In Ontario, students can learn from him at his UltraSkills Academy.
'Davidson makes the point in his introduction that even those well versed in the sport of hockey can learn - the greats are great because they never stop learning and practicing. The technical knowledge contained within the book is fantastic but is not overwhelming due to the highly visual presentation... This book is laid out in a way that even a beginner like me can follow it through and get some good ideas - or at least an understanding of what is happening in the good 'ole hockey game. However, the advanced beginner or aspiring player would get a lot more from it. Davidson has laid out the topics from gearing up to skating essentials down to dekeing and deception to breakaways and all the puckhandling, passing and shooting you can wish for in between. This book would appeal to anyone who wants to learn more about hockey or a hockey player that wants to learn how to play a stronger game' - Alison Edwards, Resource Links.
