WHL Prospect Skills Combines are an exciting opportunity to improve your individual development, gain a better understanding of your ability, and learn more about the WHL. Attending a WHL Prospect Skills Combine provides:

Experience
This is an opportunity to experience and build your confidence in the WHL Combine Testing Standard. This year all four Western Provinces will test their top U15 & U16 athletes as part of their High Performance camps, as well as the U16 WHL U.S. Prospects Camp. The reality is, as a competitive hockey player, eventually you will be in a situation where you will have to perform the combine testing under pressure, with a weighted outcome. This is an opportunity for you to familiarize yourself with each test in a comfortable setting and enhance your testing efficiency and speed for future pressure packed events.

Exposure
After being tested players are given access to an extensive on-line database with over 25,000 athletes tested by the WHL Combines. Athletes can set filters within the database by gender and age, to see how they compare. Athletes can also review progress reports within each individual test to self-assess, pin-point areas of needed improvement and make adjustments to their own training and skill development programs.

The test results for all WHL Prospect Skills Combines are shared with all WHL General Managers and Head Scouts to track and identify future prospects for the draft and their teams.

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.
