Who are we?

CrossIce Developments was established in the summer of 2018 by Owner/Founder Chance Szott, who has been involved in the game of hockey for over 17 years in total, and junior hockey for nearly 7. He has had various roles in hockey from playing, to coaching at the Junior “A” level, strength/conditioning, skill development, and more. Chance is also a Player & Coach Development facilitator and teacher on behalf of Hockey Alberta, for Coach Level 1 and 2, Checking Skills, and Player Development Clinics. Most recently, Chance accepted the Central Alberta Selects U15 AA head coaching position for the 2022/23 season.

Seeing different hockey development companies in Alberta and mainly in the central region, he felt that there were limited options for players and teams to turn to for honest, transferrable development work. Today, the CrossIce team includes 7 staff members, as we continue to round out our team to offer specialized services for our clients.

The entire CrossIce staff has the knowledge, resources, and teaching methods that will lead to maximizing your skill set, as well as make you a smarter, and more confident hockey player. Our skill development approach is a process, focused on the breakdown, acquisition, and progression of fundamental skills, through specialized sessions and innovative teaching techniques such as implementing constraint-based drills to expand skill. Finally, just as important, we work towards and establish a game transfer. While we would love to guarantee you results, nothing will work unless you do. Along with your full effort and commitment, our promise is to provide the expertise, tailored work, resources, and positive learning environment so you the athlete, can succeed and achieve fast results.

The game is evolving more and more every year, and at CrossIce, we are always a step ahead of the rest and will offer you the highest quality, detail-oriented, results-driven instruction possible.
