OVERSEAS HOCKEY AGENCY
OVERSEAS AGENCY is a professional ice hockey agency, established by Miroslav and Filip Barus in 2016. The main mission and the priority of OVERSEAS AGENCY consist in providing young ice hockey players with the opportunity of combining ice hockey, education, getting to know a foreign environment and enjoying unforgettable experiences on and off the ice.
As the only agency in EUROPE, OVERSEAS AGENCY specializes in the “Spring League” in Canada. It cooperates with a large number of Canadian coaches and scouts, and collaborates with Canadian clubs.
Since 2011, the agency has been providing young ice-hockey players aged 9 to 20 with an opportunity to improve their ice-hockey capabilities and skills.
However, OVERSEAS AGENCY is not only about the Spring League. Thanks to the evolving collaboration with Canadian clubs and agents, the agency offers individual opportunities for players all year round. The agency also offers comprehensive services, including individual trainings, camps and tournaments in the Czech Republic and all over Europe, so that players continue playing even after returning from overseas.
The Overseas agency was established in 2016. The players of 2003 set out for the Spring League first. The year was a great success, as they won the Canmore Cup Tournament.
One year later, the players of 2003 set out for Canada again, where they took part in four tournaments. They had the greatest success in Stampede Challenge Cup where they dominated. They also won a bronze medal twice (Spartan Cup and Kamloops Cup), and once they finished in fourth place (Aberta Champions Cup).
In 2018 we took part in the third Spring League, this time with players of 2000 to 2008 (teams 2004 and 2006). The team of 2004 lost the finals of Spartan Challenge Cup and finished second. 2006 players won a silver medal in the Stampede Challenge Cup Tournament. They won a bronze medal in the Spartan Cup.
In the spring of 2019 we built three teams consisting of players of years 2000 to 2008 – 2005, 2006 and 2007. The team of 2007 finished third in the Stampede Challenge Cup. The teams of 2005 and 2006 also participated in the prestigious tournament Western Elite Prospect Showcase. The players of this prestigious series of tournaments in North America and worldwide tested their skills and were carefully measured during combine tests. In difficult matches, they get on ice in front of managers and scouts from WHL.
