Suns out, sleds out!


After enduring another Alberta winter (pretty mild really) spring is in the air once again. The bay doors are regularly open and we are back outside making good use of our parking lot. E.A.T.S. Athletes need to be prepared to be outside for a portion of their training sessions.

What Have We Been Doing?


  • We hosted a community BBQ at the end of April for our athletes and friends. Thank you to those that stopped by. A huge shout out to Grove City Meats for providing an amazing Brisket. Follow them on Facebook -
  • We welcomed the Spruce Grove Cougars Bantam Football Team to the E.A.T.S. Community of Athletes. They will be training Monday evenings 5:30-6:45 pm and 6:45-8:00 pm.
  • The E.A.T.S. Method continues to evolve; changes to how programming is present will begin to roll out in May.
  • Finishing touches are being added to our New E.A.T.S. Goalie Training Protocols, which include specific Functional Range Conditioning work for our Hockey Goalies.
  • A couple of new Rogue sleds have arrived and are ready to go.
