Mike Beharrell had for several years worked with small groups of international players from around the world in Stockholm. Many of those players went on to have great success academically and athletically. Several moved on to represent their home countries at IIHF World Championships. After relocating to Nybro the concept was expanded with the involvement of Calmare International School and Nybro Vikings to become the Nybro Hockey Academy!

Former student. “In 2009 I got the chance to go play in Sweden. There I met Mike Beharrell and from there my skill set, my skating my strength and the way I thought about hockey changed. The amount and the way practices were made me a better player and a better person. From the first practice in the morning to the third and the last one of the day I was challenged to work hard on and off the ice. On ice program was really good and it helped me in the areas that I needed help with. There was a lot of time spent in the gym also so my strength improved for 100 percent. The chance to be a part of the program was the turning point in my hockey career”. 10
Former student. “Coming to play in Sweden from a country that doesn’t have very good hockey (Romania) seemed to be like an impossible mission at first sight. Even though it took me some time to adapt, hard work at every practice and discipline helped me to become the player and the person I am today. With the help of Mike and the school practices, I’ve learned a lot of individual skills that probably wouldn’t have been able to learn back in my hometown. It was the best experience of my lifetime and would do anything to go back and start it again.”
