Our “In Season” training programs start up in October. We are currently scheduling Private, Semi-Private, Small Group, and Group sessions for Major Bantam, Bantam, Pee Wee, and Atom players. Programs are designed to maximize athletic development opportunities at each age level.
We strongly believe in the same philosophy that Hockey Canada is promoting – Long Term Athlete Development. Our training programs provide opportunities to develop athletic strengths and skills in an off ice venue further enhancing our athletes’ passion and enjoyment of sports. We also ensure that program design facilitates improvement of each athlete’s Primary and Secondary fitness indicators within a fun and competitive environment.

Outside Edge Hockey Development is pleased to announce that due to demand we are expanding our programming to include a new ’04 Spring Program. This program will be focused on development and skills progression through a series of highly customized Development Camps, coupled with an option to play in a tournament.
All interested players should register online. The program will run with 15 skaters and 2 goalies and will cap at 18 skaters and 3 goalies. While this program is predominantly being held as a Spring Program, we are holding the first session on November 11, 2015 to evaluate skaters and goalies and assess development areas best suited to the participating athletes. The program will be customized to address the skills identified in the November 11th session as greatest opportunities for further skills progression.
This program will feature:
30 hours of on ice training (Various rinks in HRM)
15 hours of off ice training (Outside Edge Training Facility)
4.5 hours of video/chalk talk (Outside Edge Training Facility)
Thanks to Gord at Game On Hockey for doing a great job on the Outside Edge Hockey Development practice jerseys. They look amazing and were delivered early. Great job Gord! Can’t wait to get started on the Game Jerseys!
There are still a number of spaces available for Pee Wee AAA and Major Bantam players in our In-Season Off-Ice Training Program.
This program is designed to maximize off-ice Key Performance Indicators that are recognized as being the most important attributes for hockey players. The in-season program features two groups of 4 athletes in each session. Sessions are designed and run by Chris Pierce and Natalie Longraphy. Chris and Natalie maintain a 4 to 1 athlete to instructor ratio throughout most aspects of the in-season program.
Outside Edge’s staff and athletes would like to send out a huge CONGRATULATIONS to Shane Bowers who has been named to Hockey Canada’s Under 17 Program.
Shane has trained off-ice in the Outside Edge Elite Training program for the past 6 years. During this time, Shane has been extremely committed to hard work and continuous learning, training between 4 and 5 days a week year round. We are extremely proud of the dedication and commitment that Shane has displayed through our program.
In addition to his personal gains and achievements over the past 6 years, Shane has been an excellent leader to many of our younger participants as he’s helped us on-ice and off-ice in various camps and sessions.
Shane is currently playing as a rookie for the Waterloo Blackhawks in the USHL. He will be leaving his team for a couple weeks at the end of October to join one of Team Canada’s 3 squads to compete in the International Under 17 tournament hosted in Dawson Creek and Fort St John.
Chris and Cari along with our instructors and our current and past athletes will all be cheering for Shane as Team Canada hits the ice in November.
Way to go Shane! Keep working hard, stay focused, and be your best!
