Skill Development Sessions
This year SPS Fuzion is offering a variety of skills sessions for registered players. As sessions are scheduled, sign up links will be posted below.
We will be working with the following partners to offer development sessions for the 2023-2024 season:
Team Development Grant
This year we are launching a Team Development Grant. This grant will allow our teams to tailor development opportunities for their unique needs. Each team will submit their plan to the VP Development and Operations, once approved, the team will have up to $750.00 spend on skill development activities. Not only does this allow each team to work on specific development but it also allows SPS Fuzion to track and understand what may be most effective at the different age groups.
Coaches and managers - please submit the Team Development Grant Form and submit it for approval.
Millar Power Skating offers premier power skating instruction for groups of all sizes and abilities across Alberta. Our instruction philosophy is based on error detection and correction methods which have been developed over Britney’s 12 years as a Professional Power Skating Instructor and extensive playing career as a Professional Women’s Hockey Player. Instead of rigid lesson plans, Millar Power Skating reads and reacts to what players need in the moment. We use a combination of drills to assist players with their technique, allowing increased proprioception and overall body awareness.
Many power skating coaches have experience as figure skaters, but Millar Power Skating is different. Britney is a former NCAA hockey player and has instructed power skating and stickhandling techniques for over 5000 players ranging from Minor Hockey, AJHL, Semi-Pro, and Professional up to the NHL level. Expert power skating instruction requires an intimate understanding of hockey at the professional competitive level.
Blair Faulkner & Kurtis Mucha Goalie Consulting
Blair is a graduate of the University of Alberta, having earned both his Education and Physical Education degrees. Born and raised in Lloydminster, he became a goalie by default. The youngest of three boys, Blair strapped on the couch cushions for many a game of basement hockey with his older brothers. All of this practice prepared him for his goaltending position later in life; with stops in the AJHL, SJHL and WHL. Blair has been a Teacher and Instructor at Vimy Ridge Academy since 2013 and has spent his time working with the goaltending program in Vimy Hockey and teaching Physical Education to Junior and Senior high students. Here is a list of teams and clubs Blair has worked with through his 16 years of goalie coaching and consulting as well as being involved with Kurtis Mucha Goaltending Consulting since 2016.

The Coaches Site
Each coach will receive a membership to The Coaches Site. The coaches site allows each coach to learn from hockey’s top coaches. The Coaches Site is a community of like-minded coaches that are focused on sharing innovative tools and resources with a global hockey network. We do this by attracting the top hockey coaches and performance experts to present at our conference.
