Due to current AHS restrictions, Bow River will not be offering its traditional 3 on 3 program in 2021. Instead, we will be offering the 2021 Spring Development Program (SDP)


Spring Development Program - U9 – U18 Skaters

U9 – U18 players can register for a physically distanced development program that will run from April 10th - June 13th, 2021 (including May long weekend). The SDP will have the flexibility to include battle drills, small area games or 3 on 3 if AHS relaxes restrictions to minor hockey. Each participant will be on the ice at the Bowness Sportsplex once a week either on Saturday or Sunday with a DASH Training instructor in similar skill groups of 8-9 players per half sheet.  

The cost for 10 Skater development sessions is $350.


Spring Development Program - U9-U18 Goalies

U9 – U18 goalies can register for a physically distanced development program that will run from April 10th - June 13th, 2021 (including May long weekend). Each participant will be on the ice at Bowness Sportsplex once a week on either Saturday or Sunday with an Evolution Goaltending instructor in similar skill groups of 6 goalies per half sheet. 

The cost for 10 Goalie development sessions is $500.




Register now, space is limited. If your desired program is full, we encourage you to register on the wait list through the same link below. We will try to accommodate more participants if possible. 

Should the SDP be cancelled due to Government Closures prior to the conclusion of the SDP, a pro-rated refund would be issued.
