PRE-PROFESSIONAL

Players seldom admit the anxiety they have about not reaching their potential, but knowing and acknowledging these fears is the first step. The next step is to create a plan to make sure that doesn’t happen. Raze provides you the support you need to handle the rigors of your pre-professional career.

We have proprietary strategies to ensuring every one of our clients has a number of significant competitive advantages over their peers. Of all players selected in the NHL Entry Draft, 81% will not make a career of hockey. They are left to figure things out on their own and do not have the support of their agent or tools like those that are bundled into the Razers Edge™. For decades these tools have proven essential to Raze clients overcoming the psychological challenges that most players face:

  • Coaches failing to provide opportunities and communicate effectively to players;
  • inaccurate team assessments of their abilities and potential;
  • untimely injuries; or
  • just plain bad luck.
