Initiation Special Project – Hockey Alberta

SAMHA has been approached by Hockey Alberta to take part in a study working with a 3rd party company to track on ice data for ½ ice usage.  It will be a valuable tool to promote the program and have data to back up and support the benefits of half ice sessions.    

We are looking for (40) Initiation aged players born in 2010 and 2011, registered for the full Initiation Program this upcoming season. There is no cost to participants but space is limited to (40) players.  Players at any level or skill development are welcome. 

The session will run August 30th from 6:00pm – 7:30 at Go Auto Arena and the ice session will be as follows:

- 5 min warm up

- 10 min baseline speed testing (200 foot skate)

- 15 min cross ice games

- 15 min half ice game

- 15 min full ice game

If you are interested please email the SAMHA Initiation Director Clayton Billey at
