Spring Camp Update
Posted March 9th, 2018 @ 2:38 pm

Please be advised that the Drayton Valley Spring Camp will be held

March 23- 25, 2018 in Drayton Valley as per your original invitation.


It has come to our attention that many of our spring camp registrants received an email from our former Interim Assistant Coach. The letter you received indicated that spring camp may be cancelled.  However, this is not the case.

Moving Forward - We are excited about our 2018 Spring Camp.  We are looking forward to some of the best young talent from across Western Canada being on showcase.

The Drayton Valley Thunder is committed to building a franchise with a winning tradition and culture.  We are pleased with the skilled and dedicated young players we have been able to recruit this year and will continue our efforts to ensure we have a winning culture that is a source of pride for our fans and supporters.  A culture that focuses on overcoming adversity, putting team before self-interests, advancing players to the next level of hockey.   A culture that the best players come to play in Drayton Valley.

Work is underway to hire a new Head Coach and General Manager.  We are optimistic that we will have an exciting and qualified candidate in place very soon.

In the interim, Derek Wiest will assume the duties of Head Coach, Ian Gordon will continue as Assistant Coach and Murray Summers and Todd Lorenz will continue as our scouts.

If you have not already done so, we request that you contact us at 780.542.7845 or by email to

We apologize for the confusion and inconvenience this has caused.  We look forward to seeing you March 23-25 at what will surely be a fun and fast paced weekend of hockey in Drayton Valley.
