Junior Development

Entering its 13th season, the Junior Development Program is open to CSSHL 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 strength programs and combines both North America and European training and coaching philosophies. 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 CCSHL Midget Prep, Major Midget, and or Junior level.
