Chase Klassen

I was in the Spectrum Hockey Academy in grade 9 and also in grade 12 while playing for the Westshore Wolves Jr B hockey Club. After graduation I played 3 years for the Alberni Valley Bulldogs where I was the captain for my 3rd and final year. Through my junior hockey career I won several awards including VIJHL Rookie of the Year. In the BCHL I was awarded the Community Hero award and the Humanitarian award with the Alberni Valley Bulldogs. Currently I am an assistant coach with the Westshore Wolves of the VIJHL. I am working concrete while doing courses to work in the hospital sector as security. My long term goal is to become an RCMP officer.

The best lesson I learned while in the Spectrum Hockey Academy was from Darren Smith, “There is much more to life than hockey, it is about being a great person and being involved in the community you are living in. Always act like someone is watching.”

Where Are They Now?

Katie Banman

I am currently in my 4th year of a Bachelor of Commerce degree at Gustavson School of Business (Uvic), but I am on an exchange semester in Mannheim, Germany as we speak. I’m in the process of studying for the LSAT, and I plan to attend Law School at Uvic for joint Juris Doctor (JD) and Juris Indigenarum Doctor (JID) degrees post graduation.
I have become a keynote speaker for the Bachelor of Commerce program, and I help organize student events with the Commerce Student Society.

Aleko Sdrakas

I am currently in my 1st year of a Business Degree at Camosun College here in Victoria. On my days off of school I work at my family’s Greek restaurant (Maria’s souvlaki ). During the Regular hockey season I play for the University of Victoria Vikes and during the summer I play with the Greek National team. I’m honored to say that I was able to be a part of the Spectrum Hockey Academy throughout high school. During my time I learned so many valuable life lessons and gained plenty of core memories and friendships along the way. Spectrum Hockey Academy not only drove me in the right direction to my goals and achievements, but it also taught me how to be a mature and greater person. I am proud to say I was able to be apart of the culture and growing of the program!

Amy Johnston

I am currently in my 3rd year of elementary education program at Vancouver Island University to become a primary school teacher with the hopes of then working towards my masters in Special Education. At the moment I’m currently working full time as the Assistant General Manager of Bin 4 Nanaimo while in school full time. I have spent the last few years as a teachers assistant and have also enjoyed volunteering at various power skating camps alongside volunteering with the Capital Region Female Minor hockey Association. Alongside work and school, I have also done quite a bit of travelling the past few years.

Shayla MacDonald

I am currently in my fourth year at Anna Maria College in Massachusetts, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in social work. I am the captain of the Division 3 NCAA women’s ice hockey team.
I plan on becoming a correctional social worker, and am currently earning experience in this field with a full year internship at one of the county jails. I am a member of the Phi Alpha Eta Psi Honors Society for social work and am also a deans list student for the past 2.5 years. I plan on continuing my education and pursuing a Masters of Social Work shortly after graduation.

Hayden Visscher

I am working as a 4th year apprentice with the IBEW local 230, and have scheduled my final inter-provincial exam to become a Journeyman Electrician. I am also a Volunteer member of the View Royal Fire Department, where I have recently completed my 1001 as well as my 1002 training. I have aspirations of shifting careers and pursuing a full time position in the IAFF, serving the community that has helped shape me into the person I am today. I credit the Spectrum Hockey Academy for instilling in me not only a hard work ethic and the hunger to never stop learning, but also the ability to remain positive with whatever life throws your way.
Since graduation I have travelled a fair bit, but always found my way back to the arena. I played in the VIJHL before switching my jersey for a whistle to coach the Saanich Admirals. Hockey will forever have my heart and I make an effort to lace up my skates any opportunity I can. I am extremely honoured to say that I am alumni.
