Introducing the SPMHA Competitive Stream Program for U11 and U13 athletes! In partnership with the Sherwood Park King's Athletic Club, SPMHA is thrilled to offer an exceptional opportunity for top-tiered athletes in the upcoming 2023-24 season. Our program is designed to attract and retain the best talent and coaches in Sherwood Park, propelling them towards sanctioned true AA and AAA elite-stream hockey. Players selected to one of our Competitive Stream teams will receive additional on-ice instruction by highly trained coaches and certified skill providers, an enhanced apparel package, more consistent ice-times, mirroring the development resources available through AA & AAA hockey.  Both programs will compete in the top tier in their respective age category within the Edmonton Federation Hockey League.

We understand that families may have specific preferences and additional expenses related to competitive stream programs, which is why we provide a separate tryout process for both the U11 and U13 age groups. Prior to team formation, selected players will be invited to an informative session where they will receive a detailed outline of the program and relevant team costs. Join us on this exciting journey of enhanced development and increased program awareness for your young athlete!

RECREATIONAL PROGRAM STREAM

Welcome to the exciting world of our Recreational Stream Program! Designed for families seeking a more relaxed and affordable hockey experience, this program offers a non-tiered team format within the Edmonton Federation Hockey League's Recreation Division.

Our Recreational Stream caters to a wide range of players, from beginners learning the fundamentals of hockey to those with more experience. It's the perfect option for those new to hockey, as well as those looking to step back from the higher commitment levels and costs associated with our other program streams.

In this program, we prioritize the joy of the game and focus on creating a fun and supportive environment for all participants. The emphasis here is on the game itself. As such, practices are offered only a few times throughout the season, mainly for players who need to develop their basic skills in order to enjoy the game.

Join us for an enriching hockey experience that values camaraderie, sportsmanship, and the love of the sport. Whether your child is taking their first steps on the ice or looking for a more laid-back approach to the game, our Recreational Stream is the ideal choice. Discover the perfect balance of hockey enjoyment and family-friendly atmosphere with us!
