Entering its 12th season, the Junior Development Program is open to Midget Prep, Major Midget and Junior level hockey players. On-ice practices focus on power skating, puck skills, compete, and high tempo drills. This program compliments elite level players off-ice training programs. Over 50 NHL draft picks have skated in this program in the past 10 years. Goalies are present at all sessions.

“The junior development program helped me prepare for both junior and pro hockey. Derek Popke and his staff run a high tempo skate that allowed me to make gains in the gym while improving my on-ice skills” Macoy Erkamps – Brandon Wheat Kings / Ottawa Senators draft pick.

Players must have completed 1 full season at the Midget Prep, Major Midget, and or Junior level.
