GDA Hockey is a full-service hockey management agency that sees the big picture. We know that becoming an elite hockey player doesn’t happen overnight. You must have dedication, commitment, a relentless work ethic, a vision, and most importantly, patience with an unwavering belief in yourself and the process. These values that we hold in high regard begin at an early age. At GDA Hockey, we are dedicated to the long-term success of our clients, which starts with helping all clients realize their full untapped potential. When we work with amateur players, we are committed to placing them at the highest-level AAA, Prep, Junior, or NCAA organizations. To accomplish this, we have programs in place to develop their natural talents, improve weaknesses, and, most importantly, bring out the best in every player. We closely follow each client to make sure they are always on track, meeting important milestones. We never cut corners and take the time to do the proper in-depth research throughout the process to become aware of all the present and potential future opportunities for our clients. As a result, we can confidently provide guidance about the best fit and options for each unique player and family. We aggressively market and promote our players at the NCAA level, making sure their names stay at the top of everyone’s list. We communicate with you and your family on the academic programs that could be a potential match and provide information on others that should be on your radar. We’ve worked hard to develop a good reputation with each Division I school to bring the best options to our clients. For our professional clients, we offer expanded services through GDA Management. With a professional contract and a high personal profile comes the added pressure to perform consistently within the high-pressure world of professional sports.
