CrossIce Developments was established in September of 2017 by Owner and Operator Chance Szott, who played two seasons of Junior Hockey for the Castlegar Rebels in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League. As Chance moved through Minor Hockey and Junior, he made a lot of connections and picked up hockey development and fitness training from all angles. As a player, he witnessed first hand the importance of putting in the work off the ice in the gym consistently as well as the importance of making your weakest spots of your game your strongest on the ice through specialized training.
At the conclusion of his playing career, Chance’s passion turned to some hockey operations duties, but his main goal was to contribute to helping players become better by offering off ice as well as on ice development. Armed with his Fitness Training Certification through International Sports Sciences, as well as experience as a Scout in the AJHL, an Assistant General Manager in the KIJHL, an Advisor, Coach, Trainer, and Skills Instructor, Chance has a wealth of experience of all aspects of the game to help his clients get to the next level.
Just as important, he has the connections in the Junior Hockey world in leagues such as the BCHL, AJHL, SJHL, MJHL, and the WHL to provide prime opportunities for players to prove themselves. CrossIce Developments is your one stop shop for everything you as a player need to take your game to your maximum potential.
