Three Local Players Chosen to Attend Next Step of Sask First Program

by Shanine Sealey

Three of Martensville’s own will be participating in the next step of the Sask First Male Under-15 program, which will be taking place from February 17-19. Congratulations to Cohen Klassen, Broden Wotherspoon and Easton Woytiuk.

The Sask First High Performance Program took place in December with regional camps across the province and from there, the top 160 players are chosen to take place in the Sask First Tournament in December. From here, the top 80 are invited to participate in a second tournament held in February, following which, the top 25-30 players are chosen to attend the upcoming summer camp.

“This process ensures all players not only have the opportunity to compete with peers, but receive significant exposures as all Sask First events are highly attended by scouts from a variety of elite leagues. In addition, the Sask First Program is a gateway to Hockey Canada’s High Performance Program, which includes their National Teams such as the World Juniors,” the hockeysask.ca website explains. This program was created to ensure players, coaches and officials have the opportunity for development both on and off the ice and offers an in depth developmental program for all participating.
