"This is my experience with JT & Between The Bucket:

1. JT is a true coach in every aspect. He exudes integrity and communicates very well.  My 3 boys are fortunate to have time with JT for development as ice hockey players and as young men. JT tailors his program for different types and skill levels of players.

2. The on ice skills lessons are exactly as I had hoped - I am seeing significant improvements from each session.

3. The video sessions are excellent - I am seeing improved hockey IQ and increased confidence."

"The new age defenseman has to be able to contribute in both the offensive and defensive zone. Working with JT both when playing for him at the Rockets and while at University of Delaware has helped me understand how to contribute offensively from the back end in a responsible way. It has made the transition from junior hockey to college hockey much more seamless."

-Patrick Flaherty (Defenseman: University of Delaware)

"I love watching film with JT throughout the season. Being intentional while studying my offensive zone positioning has helped me find myself in higher scoring chance areas more and more often. It also helped me adjust to being defensively responsible as a center at the NCAA level. Our video sessions are a critical part of my preparation throughout the season."

-Mikey Mania (Forward: UMass Dartmouth NCAA D3)

"JT’s on and off ice work with my son has improved his overall hockey IQ in noticeable ways.  He stresses paying attention to the details and hard work.  He’s worked with my son for over a year now and we will continue to work with him going forward."

-Justin Pucci (Bantam AAA Parent)

"When JT played for me, I knew he would be a great coach some day. I brought him in to be my assistant coach at the Rockets once he graduated, and we had an amazing two year run.

While we worked together, JT made sure we were prepared for every game we suited up for. I truly believe the video sessions and culture he helped establish was a major factor in helping us reach nationals for the first time in program history.

We still work with JT, and are excited for more of his video sessions to help us improve throughout the 2023-2024 season!"

-Todd Wagenbach (Head Coach: Rockets Hockey Club Junior Elite)

"I highly recommend JT Tarantino and BTB!

My sons have been working with JT the past 2 years, and I'm always impressed with the skills sessions. He keeps the kids moving and engages with them during the session to ensure they are improving their game. I have seen improvement in their overall skating and stick handling since we've been doing the sessions with JT.

Highly recommend BTB for any age!"
