About


My name is JJ Santagata, I grew up on Long Island, New York. I am a 23-year-old former college player turned current head coach of the Ames Minor Hockey High School hockey team. Hockey has been the only sport I have stuck with my whole life. Growing up I played every sport but never fell in love with any of them like hockey. I grew up with three brothers and we were all relatively close in age where we would compete against each other in everything whether it was the royal rumble, wiffle ball, or knee hockey we always made it like it was game seven of the Stanley Cup. I have to attribute much of my competitive nature, drive and desire to be the best to my brothers. My hockey journey began when I was 9-years-old, I played roller hockey earlier but that's not the same as ice hockey as you know. (Fun Fact: My first roller hockey goal was assisted by my older brother and cousin, talk about that for a first career goal.) I stared ice-hockey at age 10 by taking lessons with one of the best coaches I've had, Mike Orth. Doing a year of instruction lessons and my coach pushing me to tryout for travel and making the 10U Ice Cats the following year is where this all started. I played for the Ice Cats for 2 years until I moved on. After that I tried out for the Long Island Edge, I ended up making the team and quitting within in two months. I never dealt with such poor treatment from a group of kids before in my life. After I quit the Edge, I quit ice-hockey for a year, stared roller hockey and got invested in roller hockey with dreams of playing in college. Around this same time I was dealing with some major middle-school issues being bullied by my classmates that made it even harder to play any sport. After my good friends father and my mother forced me to get back on the ice for the Junior Varsity high school team in 9th grade I never gave up on hockey again. I ended up playing the JV team that year, winning MVP, going onto to play travel in Brooklyn, NY for the Brooklyn Aviators/Jr. Aviators and making Varsity High School hockey for three years straight. Alternate captaining the team for two-years and having some of the best times of my life in hockey from 15-18 years old. That Aviators team were the best group of kids I've ever met, they were the nicest, most welcoming and friendliest kids I could have been introduced to at that time and age. I cannot thank those guys enough for all they did. I realized too late that I can make something of my hockey career, I focused too much time on hanging with friends and being "popular" that it took away from the focus of the game sometimes. One of the many reasons I have this site is to make sure no hockey player makes the same mistakes I did and looks back in their life with regrets. Hockey has done so much for me I have made it my life mission to give back to this game more than I ever received.

While I definitely did not play to my fullest potential in hockey I still shared some amazing memories and played some pretty solid hockey throughout the age from 15-18 still. Ranging from many camps, showcases, the Chowder Cup, Hockey Night In Boston, etc. I played Juniors for the New York Applecore in high school, during this time is when I realized I may not be the best player on the ice but I am 100% the hardest working and probably one of the smartest players out there. I was not gifted with Sidney Crosby skating ability but I could read plays like no other and had the hockey IQ beyond my skill level. I went onto play four years at Rider University where I had the best four years of my life and best last year of hockey ever. Being a captain my final season for the Rider team made me so thankful for this game, the community, the players, teammates and everything. Hockey has taught me so much and made me who I am today, it has taught me lessons I could not learn in the classroom or from anything else. Either way, I never played the "best" hockey, but as I got older I got better and better and became more and more relentless and driven to be the best I could be. My final season I won the All-MACH conference first team defenseman, leadership award, defenseman of the year for my team, had the best year statistical in my career and noticed it was too little to late that I realized the potential I have in this sport. Which is what made me create this website, to educate, guide, inspire, support and help as many hockey players as I can. I am a 5'8 165 lb defenseman who never was the most flashy player but always had a relentless compete level, insatiable thirst to win and was known for my hockey IQ as a defenseman out there. I attribute a lot of my success to my mother, father, Coach Levin and Roache and Coach Robinson the help of these coaches is what makes me want to coach and help the youth players today as well give back to the game of hockey as much as it gave to me and more, if possible. I hope you enjoy this website and it's content, and I hope if there is any way I can help you, I do. If you ever need anything never hesitate to reach out. I am always here to help guide and support anyone who needs it.

A leader is someone who knows the way, shows the way and goes the way.

MY THOUGHTS ON WHAT JESSICA ALLEN SAID ABOUT HOCKEY + MORE!


This is not something I typically do. I try to stay away from politics because it is not something I like to talk about often as their is a very negative culture surronded by politics.

But being that hockey has done so much for me and continues to give me so much. I wanted to quickly touch on what Jessica Allen said about hockey and the culture and community. As well this is a hockey, sports, training and youth sports podcast so I wanted to touch on this.

I do not agree with Jessica Allen's comments and I do not agree with Don Cherry's comments about poppies and immigrants. But society and the world today needs to stop with creating two sides of every story and forcing people to choose one or the other. I can't stand behind how everyone needs to have an opinion on everything in society, not everything needs a reaction and more people in society need to understand that. As well I don't like how we can generalize one community and culture based off a few people and a few people's views and opinions.

Be better society.

DEVELOPING MENTAL TOUGHNESS & FINDING YOUR WHY


HOW ARE YA!!!!!!

Love this topic, love this episode. I sit down for 35 minutes and spew a boat load of stuff in your ears/face. It's not information that'll accept very easily, I do say the unpopular thing and I speak about somethings that I believe could help you become tougher mentally.

In a society that is having trouble with their emotions, taking cricitism, dealing with adversity and setbacks. This podcast episode helps one deal with just that! We are capable of doing great things but sometimes the one thing that is getting in our way is our mind. Take control of that and you'll be unstopable!

HOW TO LIVE A HEALTHY LIFE FOR BUSY INDIVIDUALS!


This weeks episode came from my own personal experience. I was running from client to client, did not bring lunch with me or pack food with me. Therefore I had to find something in Walgreens to eat to hold me over until I had time to heat up my next meal. I ran into Walgreens scanned my options and found myself buying two Oatmega bars, two cheese sticks and 32 oz of water. It came out to $6.79 and that is when it hit me.

There are probably so many people who are always on the go and have no idea what to eat or how to eat on the go. You probably have run into gas station and made the wrong choice or were running late and just grabbed fast food.

Then it hit me again. There are probably so many people who have no idea where to start to live a healthy life as a busy individual. That is why I recorded this podcast to help educate those busy individuals or individuals who are lost on what to do and what to choose to eat when they are on the go. As well as help educate people on how to live a healthy life as a busy individual. Where to start, how to get started, etc!

Hope you enjoy episode!

USING FAILURE TO MOTIVATE YOU, STEP OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE AND GO ALL IN (PART 2)


Last week I posted a podcast episode titled "Finding what you love, doing it and going all in!" I wanted to follow up and piggy backing off that podcast because I did leave out some things. Therefore I wanted to touch on two things with this podcast mainly.

Using failure to motivate you and fearing failure as well as using uncertainity to fuel your passion and chase your dreams.

We open the podcast up

0:00-1:15- LEAD BY EXAMPLE INTRODUCTION

1:15-5:05- The goal and directon of the Lead By Example Hockey Training Podcast

5:10-20:41- Using the fear of failure to movtivate you to push through roadblocks and overcome adversity.

(In this part I talk about a personal story about a client I am working with also!)

17:30-20:41- Something I saw on Twitter that a lot of people may not agree with. https://twitter.com/_traenk/status/1173994350801539073

(You can find the tweet above thanks to Taylor Traenkle)

20:41-24:21- The trend of people eading motivational qoutes and inspirational qoutes and posting them on their instagram or social media just to fit in and "look cool". Enough of that bullshit. Stop. Apply the qoutes and what you read to your own life before you share it with your followers.

24:21-30:33-Stepping outside your comfort zone and pushing yourself to be uncomfortable

30:33-34:10 QUICK RECAP/SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST!

We will always find excuses when we are scared to do things, we are afraid others won't accept us and our friends or parents won't agree what we are doing. So we get scared and do not do what we love. You DO NOT need anyone's validation to do what you love. JUST DO IT AND ACT!!! GO ALL IN!!

0-1:03- Introduction

1:03-2:15- Thank you Fowler for the intro!!

2:15-4:26- Remembering 9/11 and thanking those who serve and sacrifice their lives for our freedom.
