Back to Clients

As an aspiring professional hockey player, one of the most challenging things that both the athlete and family face is selecting the right person to help guide us through the journey.  For our family, this proved to be very true.  We considered it very fortunate that John was introduced and came to work with Kurt.  Since we began working with Kurt and his staff, they have given us guidance and sound advice every step of the way.  Kurt’s unparalleled knowledge of the hockey world and professional demeanor gave us the utmost confidence that John’s career is being managed properly.  We can’t imagine anyone else filling the role that he does for our family.  Lastly, we highly recommend Kurt and KO Sports to any young athlete that has the dream of becoming a professional hockey player.
