  • Working with the people at CKM Sports has been a great experience.They provide all the tools an athlete may need to improve their game while also taking care of all the noise so that i was able to focus on just playing. I am excited to continue working with CKM Sports and look forward to reaching the next level.

  • For most people in Hockey, an agent or agency, is used as a tool to help the player receive contracts.  For me, I've gained a lifelong friend in Cliff Mander and the care from his supporting cast of CKM.   I've been a client of CKM since my last year of Junior in 2011.  Since being a part of their team, I have achieved a few of my goals of playing NCAA division 1 and professional hockey in the ECHL.  I don't know if I would've achieved them if it weren't for the guidance of CKM.  They have steered me in the right direction since the beginning and I am confident that they will continue to help me for the rest of my career.

  • “Cliff helped me at a time in my career where I thought I was almost done. He's helped with all the NCAA contacts and helped me evaluate my options. He's been good at helping me develop on and off the ice physically and mentally. I would recommend Cliff to any player trying to improve their development and move on in their career.” – Name withheld due to NCAA Bylaws
