As you may know, I have been coaching and recruiting female elite hockey players from all over Alberta, Saskatchewan and British Columbia. The past few years we have been organizing U12 & U14 female super elite hockey teams the Alberta Spartan Outlaws to travel with and compete against the top female athletes in North America. With all the buzz that was created with our teams, skills academy and camps, we have committed to build an entire female development program. Our mission is to provide the same type of development opportunities as the boys receive, exposing them to elite skills training, dryland, classroom, etc. and showcase super elite teams to provide university scholarship opportunities to our well deserved athletes. Our WestCan program has become well respected within the college circuit for rostering recruitable athletes.
I’ve been coaching girls hockey for about 13 years now and the first 4 years was spent trying to get my head wrapped around the female game. It didn’t take long for me to become disappointed as the girls take a back seat everywhere I looked and they still do, but we're changing that. It has now taken me 8 years to evolve as a coach and in my approach to try to provide development that would be better than anywhere else and to convince people in the hockey world that the girls deserve better. I’m personally invested into this because I still have daughters coming up the system with big dreams. The same dreams as many of the girls that I have met and coached over the years and this will all be designed to give them the tools and open the doors for them to achieve their life/hockey goals.
