Get a leg up on the competition and join one of our Summer Camp offerings.  SPMHA will be hosting summer training camps in August focused on Season & Evaluation Prep, Power Edge Pro, Power Skating, Shooting, Defensive Tactics, Checking & Goaltending.


Power Edge Pro utilizes Reactive Countering Training™ (R.C.T.) to engage multiple motor skills simultaneously and develop a player’s small area game performance. All patterns are completed while maintaining puck control and are designed to provide 5x as many repetitions as standard drill based practices, leading to faster development of elite skills.

Our development team will group similarly skilled players, allowing participants to work through the repetitions at a pace that builds confidence and is appropriate to their abilities.

If new to, or relatively inexperienced with PEP, we recommend that you register for the standard PEP sessions.  While still separating players based on skill, these sessions will be more geared for players who are new to, or have less experience with PEP.   We recommend that experienced PEP skaters register for the PEP Advanced program, as these sessions will be faster paced and geared for players who've had lots of PEP reps.  Exceptions may be made for players with no prior PEP experience that graded in Tiers 1 or 2 in the 2022-2023 season.

Sessions will be led by SPMHA Level 3 Certified PEP Instructors.


Power skating teaches proper edge utilization so that edge movement becomes instinctual, adding natural agility, while playing the game. Body position is key for strong grip and balanced lean, skills that ultimately result in players having tight, quick movements. Our power skating camps will use a combination of drills to help advance players with their technique, allowing increased proprioception and overall body awareness.  Powerskating is an essential training component recommended for all players.

Our summer power skating sessions will once again be lead by Britney Millar of Millar Power Skating.

Millar Power Skating - Britney Millar

Britney Millar is a highly motivated Master Power Skating Instructor with over 14 years of experience with both male and female athletes (hockey and ringette) ranging from minor hockey, AJHL, semi-pro, and professional, including the likes of the NHL's Kirby Dach, a current Chicago Blackhawk.

Her philosophy of Power Skating Instruction is based on error detection and correction methods she has acquired through 10 years as a Professional Power Skating Instructor and extensive playing career (Mercyhurst University - NCAA Division 1 and 9 years as a Professional Women’s Hockey Player). She does not have specific lesson plans that she follows for each session. Instead, she reads and reacts to what the players need in the moment. She has specific drills that she uses to assist players with their technique, allowing increased proprioception and overall body awareness.



Our Evaluation Prep camps are designed to maximize your  player's evaluation performance and confidence by focusing on the individual skills, specific drills and gameplay scenarios that they will be evaluated on during SPMHA fall evaluations.  The curriculum will include a progressive focus on the skills being tested, ranging from basic fundamentals of the skills through to the actual evaluation drills and evaluation equipment that will be used.   With instructors providing a large volume of repetitions and corrective feedback, your player will have better confidence and less anxiety heading into evals, providing them the best opportunity to reach the level they are aiming for.

Our U11 HADP/AA Prep camp is designed specifically for those U11 players who are targeting to play on one of our top tier U11 HADP teams.  These camps will be run at a more intense pace, and will focus on getting your young athlete prepared and conditioned for the U11 HADP tryouts which are set to begin soon after this camp completes.

Players will be grouped with similarly skilled players, allowing them to move through the drills at a speed appropriate for their abilities, in order to help build their confidence in performing each drill.  All Eval Prep camps will be lead on-ice by members of our SPMHA Development Team,




This camp is specifically designed to teach skills and techniques as they relate to body contact. The program will focus on proper techniques for initiating and receiving contact. The camp will expose players to contact in a controlled setting, giving the player confidence in a multitude of situations. Each skill is demonstrated with proper technique, and then broken down into crucial components, so they have the confidence to grow and develop their skills and move onto more advanced abilities.


Our defense training camp will be an intense 5 day program covering a wide range of defensive skills, concepts and tactics specific to the defensive side of the puck.  It is designed for players you are looking to take their defensive skills to the next level.  This camp is open to players from U11 through U18, but players will be grouped with similar skill in their on-ice stations.


This camp is focused on the art of shooting and scoring. Players will be introduced to advanced shooting techniques and tactics, while breaking each shot down into it's essential components. Players will be shown how to develop weak areas, allowing them to grow and develop their skills and move onto more advanced abilities.



By popular demand, SPMHA is pleased to bring back Kurtis Mucha to lead our Goalie Development Camps for 2023.

Kurtis grew up in Sherwood Park and played his minor hockey in the SPKAC system. He enjoyed a successful Bantam AAA season with his team, which ultimately led him to being drafted 25th overall in the WHL Bantam draft by the Portland Winterhawks. Making his WHL debut as a 15 year old, Kurtis went on to play 4.5 seasons with the Winterhawks and finished his 20 year old season with the Kamloops Blazers. After completing his 5 seasons in the WHL, Kurtis still ranks 1st in games played by a goaltender in the WHL’s history at 245, 2nd in minutes at 13,708, and 3rd in most saves at 6,908. Kurtis chose to utilize the WHL scholarship program and attended the University of Alberta from 2010 – 2015. He was very fortunate to be part of such a successful program, winning 4 league titles and 2 national championships in his time with the Golden Bears.

Upon graduation, Kurtis was provided the opportunity to get into coaching. Under the mentorship of Dustin Schwartz, Kurtis assumed the role as Director of Goalie Development at the Vimy Ridge Academy in Edmonton as well as the Goalie Development Coach of the Edmonton Oil Kings in the WHL. Kurtis has worked with the Spruce Grove Saints in the past and is currently with the Sherwood Park Crusaders of the AJHL. His coaching extends to many minor hockey associations in and around the Edmonton area.
