Edmonton, AB -- Okanagan Hockey Group, in partnership with the Western Hockey League (WHL), is pleased to announce the dates and venue for the 2015 Edmonton WHL Prospect Combine.
The Edmonton WHL Prospect Combine will be held May 30-31, 2015 at the prestigious Royal Glenora Club, which is located along the North Saskatchewan River in the heart of Edmonton.
“We are excited to bring the WHL Prospect Combines to the Royal Glenora Club,” said Andy Oakes, President of the Okanagan Hockey Group. “With the newly renovated arena and first class off-ice facilities it will be tremendous experience for all the athletes participating in the Combine.”
In 1961, three clubs—the Glenora Skating and Tennis Club, the Braemar Badminton Club, and the Royal Curling Club—joined together to become the Royal Glenora Club. The Club is home to a newly renovated arena, an indoor glass enclosed pool that features a retractable roof, along with multiple tennis, squash and badminton courts. The Club is world renowned in Figure Skating as the training facility for World Champions such as Kurt Browning, Jamie Salé and David Pelletier.
“The Royal Glenora Club is proud to partner with the Okanagan Hockey Group and the WHL to provide a world class opportunity to the athletes attending the WHL Prospect Combine,” said Kirk Reynolds, Sports Manager of the Royal Glenora Club. “We are very excited and honoured to help partner in the development of the next era of WHL players.”
The WHL Prospect Combines are designed to assist high level minor hockey players with their skill development and provide exposure to the WHL by participating in comprehensive on-ice and off-ice testing with state of the art equipment designed by Sport Testing Inc.
In addition to Edmonton, WHL Prospect Combines are also held in Calgary, Regina, Vancouver and Winnipeg.
I found Okanagan Hockey Academy to be one of the best experiences in my life. It prepared me to be the best junior hockey player I could be. The staff at OHA were committed to helping me improve and move on to the next level."
