Summer Training

SDP Hockey - A Different Way to Train

Most summer training programs are open to the masses resulting in a wide disparity in participant skill level.  Select Development Program believes that to take your game to the Next-Level it is critical for athletes to train and compete against other athletes of similar skill.  To ensure we create this optimal training environment SDP Athletes are accepted to our Bantam Elite or PeeWee Elite programs by application only.

Another key benefit to SDP training is we limit our training programs to three groups (Bantam Elite, PeeWee Elite and Squirt Elite) and limit group size to ensure a low athlete to coach ratio.  SDP Coaches believe it is important to build strong relationships with our athletes, understand their strengths and weaknesses and their goals.  By limiting the number and size of our training groups, SDP Coaches are able to understand each athlete and train accordingly.

At SDP, our focus is to create a fun, but challenging environment that fosters in our athletes a love and passion for the game of hockey!

If you’re serious about taking your game to the Next-Level Select Develop Program offers a different way to train.
