My name is Chance Szott, and I am the Owner/Founder of CrossIce Developments- the new premiere elite hockey development company in Central Alberta. I am also as of recently, an Assistant Coach for the Olds Grizzlys of the Alberta Junior Hockey League. I wanted to send this letter out earlier this year than I did last year, to inform everyone about our August Prep Camps taking place in Lacombe, AB, this fall. This season, we are running age groups all the way from Atom, up to Midget/Junior aged. The goal of these camps is to not only prepare players for their respective upcoming try-outs/hockey seasons, but also to further develop their skills, confidence, and athleticism, to ultimately make them better hockey players and better athletes.
An exciting addition for CrossIce Developments this year has been the partnership with past Owner of Breakaway Training JASON PETRIE. Jason comes to CrossIce with over 20 years of Jr A scouting experience, 5 years of running Breakaway Training primarily out of Lacombe, and being the current Sports Performance Teacher at Lacombe Composite High School. His knowledge of skill development, how to relate to players through proper instruction, and how to translate off-ice training into a players on-ice game, is second to none. Jason is also coordinating CrossIce Developmentsâ€™ off-ice training programs based out of Lacombe this summer- creating age-appropriate programs for players who want to get to the next level. Programs/work-outs are tailored to playersâ€™ age, body types, positions, past injuries, genetics, movement patterns, and more. Please see our website for training dates, or feel free to contact us with any questions you have about our off-ice training this summer in Lacombe.

What are people saying about us?
â€œI had the opportunity as President of Ponoka Minor Hockey to meet Owner of CrossIce Developments Chance Szott last hockey season. During our Midget game there was a CrossIce skills session taking place on our other ice surface. One of the first things I noticed while watching was his attention to detail while working with each player. Following the skate I met with Chance and shortly after we met several times. It didnâ€™t take long to decide that CrossIce Developments was the outfit whom could help our association. We booked several sessions with him for next year for our program. A young man with the passion and knowledge of the game Chance has would benefit any individual or association!â€
- Cam Rice, Past President, Ponoka Minor Hockey Association
â€œWe had the pleasure of working with CrossIce Developments this season and couldnâ€™t be happier. Being a small association, they tailored each session for the varied skill levels, keeping the kids engaged and challenged. Their drills were up to date and tailored individually for what the coaches desired and planned throughout the season. CrossIce came with a wide variety of skills to teach the kids, video sessions, and a willingness to work with the association on our time and budget constraints. Most impressive is their professionalism and the instrcutors' love for teaching. We are thrilled to have them back next year!â€
- Chris Edgerly, Player Development Coordinator, New Sarepta Minor Hockey Association
â€œI would recommend CrossIce Developments to any of my friends looking to help their players be better. They work extremely hard with players, and are dedicated to helping players develop their weaknesses in every skate. Combining the off-ice work with the on-ice skill development, they are a playersâ€™ or teamsâ€™ one stop-shop for improvement plain and simple. They are evolved and on top of every aspect of the game. We are more than happy with their work amongst our organization!â€
- Darren Marchesi, Owner, Jr Oil Kings Spring Hockey Association
We look forward to hopefully seeing you in August! If anybody has any questions or concerns regarding our fall programs, please do not hesitate to contact me at the information below.
