SHERWOOD PARK, AB: The Sherwood Park Crusaders are proud to announce Britney Millar as the organization’s Director of Player Development, effective immediately.
“I’m very excited at the opportunity to become a bigger part of an already successful organization,” Millar commented. “I’ve been with the program now for 4 years as the skating coach and have really enjoyed being a part of the success. We’ve made some changes this past year, and I believe the coaching staff, GM and ownership see the diversity that exists within our unique skill sets and we are now more than ever committed to taking our AJHL program to the next level.”
“We all believe in the same program and philosophy of individualized player development and have a strong plan on how we are going to implement that moving forward.”
“I have been on the ice with Britney in the past and I look forward to being able to work with her moving forward,” stated Mike Ellis of Highlight Sports, one of the Crusaders on-ice development consultants.
“We are really excited for Britney to take the next step in her career,” echoed Crusaders President of Operations Adam Sergerie. “She is such a passionate person, who works very hard at her job and is a great communicator. Britney’s playing background in the NCAA & Pro level will also be very valuable, as she can relate to the players and help guide them to the goals they aspire to. Britney will work closely with all of our staff members to oversee each of the player development plans and keep a pulse on all of our players’ mental well being. We are very lucky to have her taking on a bigger role within the organization.”
MIllar’s career in hockey has spanned over two decades as both a player and coach. From 1999-2004, the Kingston, Ontario native attended Mercyhurst University of the NCAA, where she patrolled the blue line as part of the school’s women’s hockey program and collected 56 points (24 goals, 32 assists) in 135 games. Shortly after graduating, Millar took the position of Head Power Skating Instructor with Quantum Speed High Performance Skating Systems, completing the program’s apprenticeship program in 2008. After eight years with Quantum, 2015 saw Millar found Millar Power Skating, working with all levels of hockey from minor to the NHL. That, of course, includes her work with the Alberta Junior Hockey League as the Crusaders lead skating coach for the past four seasons.
The Crusaders would like to congratulate Britney on her new role.
