“First off I would like to thank all the scouts and volunteers that worked hard to put on a great showcase for all of us. This years coastal showcase was a new experience for me. It was amazing being able to show the scouts what I can do as a hockey player but its great motivation when you have high-end coaches on the bench giving you pointers as well. I learned what it takes to be an elite athlete and a good person at the coastal showcase weekend.”

The NCAA session was informative, and I would go back again.”

"Last Year i participated in the Coastal Hockey Showcase in Penticton BC. I enjoyed the time there playing in front of the many scouts that viewed the games. I also was very pleased to have the NCAA and Junior A coaches right there on the bench teaching and coaching throughout the games. The Showcase was a great opportunity for me to show myself off to new viewers. Throughout the showcases i found the seminars very beneficial. I am very thankful for the opportunity to participate in the Coastal Showcase"
Nolan Marshall- Camrose Kodiaks; AJHL
" The program you have set up for players coming up through minor hockey and Junior is one that has helped me play Jr. A hockey. As a player I have had the opportunity to showcase my skills and abilities to top teams whether junior or college. In addition to that I have had the experience of playing under pressure knowing that every move I make on the ice is being scrutinized by scouts in the stands, this helped me to learn how to play under pressure and turn that pressure into motivation. It has been an awesome experience I will never forget, and I will recommend the camp to any hockey player looking to pursue a serious hockey career''
Josh Cook - Loydminster Bobcats; AJHL

It was great to have a goalie session. It was very intense but enjoyable. Joey was strict but made it fun at the same time. I would definitely recommend this camp to others"

“Coastal Hockey Showcase was a great experience for me. Knowing that you have all these teams watching you drove me to work ever harder, and it pays off by teams wanting to talk with me. The coaches on the bench gave lots of feedback and gave out pointers. I learned more about NCAA hockey through the seminar. Overall it was fun and a great learning experience.”
"Playing in the 2011 Coastal Showcase has been a great experience for me. The calibre of the players was excellent and the talent on each team was well balanced. This made for some very close and competitive games. What was exciting for me was seeing so many scouts in the stands during my games. I started receiving calls and invites to camps in less than a day after the Showcase was over. Thank you Coastal Hockey Showcase for giving me the opportunity to play in such a well organized event".
