The reason I chose ACE was because I knew it would provide me with the right resources and environment to help me improve as much as I can. Pierre Lamarche was a big reason for my move. It really stood out how much he cared for my game even when I was not one of his players. With the support of my family and friends I left Pickering to live in Burlington with Doug Burke [ACE President] at the ACE house. The first week I was there I was extremely grateful to have the opportunity to train with so many resources, something I was not used to. I sat down with Pierre, Doug and Clement and discussed my goals, one of them being to win the Nationals.
