    "I was so disappointed with this afterschool program. Looks like they are making changes for future sessions, but I will share what I experienced during the 200910 sessions. when we signed up, there was no mention that it was only a 12 hour of instruction. no reason why it can't be a full hour, the instructors are there. pretty expensive program 35hour. during the 8 week session, we saw 3 instructors of which only 1, in my opinion, was trained to teach ice hockey. the kids only had about 16th of the ice to practice on. very little time was spent with the puck on the ice. I called the So. Burlington Rec Dept to communicate my concerns but they claim only to be the organizer and redirected me to the Vermont Skating Club. The representative there acknowledged my issues and promised to followup...but he never did. We've done the Full Stride equivalent and that's much better."
