Hockey Academy

Our coaches provide a framework that focuses on individual skill development while also reinforcing important team concepts. Players in our program will be exposed to training that pushes them out of their comfort zone. This training improves individual skills while also challenging our players to become creative decision-makers on the ice. Our staff, our coaches, and the structure of our academy provides the best environment for student-athletes to obtain maximum results both academically and athletically

Hockey Academy:

This program is to supplement your player’s existing team and team practices. The hockey academy program provides opportunities for working on personal skill development that is often missed in team practices or large groups

A typical day:


9:15-10:15: On Ice Skills  (Fridays will be Organized Off Ice Programs or Seminar Series)
10:15-10:45: Shower/Snack

Hockey Philosophy:

Our Hockey Training Philosophy is to create a culture where the athletes are striving to improve on a daily basis. Our program is run by highly qualified coaches that will enable us to enhance the performance of each individual. Each individual player will excel on all athlete development components: physical, technical-tactical, mental and emotional. The program focuses on the fundamentals of technique and teaching good personal habits to enhance the game.


The on-ice curriculum will be skill based and develop the necessary tools in order to achieve the goals of each athlete. Our experienced coaches will utilize the same skills that they have used to coach NHL, AHL, NCAA D1/D3 and various Junior league players. The focus will be on the individual details that each player can use to become a dynamic player rather than just a good player. Our goal is to challenge athletes by incorporating overspeed skating, tactical play, game awareness, puck control and protection, shooting technique, angling and body contact. The training will be comprehensive and small area games will help the student to translate and apply the skill sets to game situations. Throughout the course of the school year, guest coaches who specialize in different facets of the game will supplement the already diverse hockey curriculum.

Seminar Series:

At our Hockey Academy, we want to encourage the student athletes to be well rounded and understand the characteristics and lifestyle that are required to be a successful athlete. We will have seminars that focus on mindset, nutrition, healthy workouts, injury prevention, leadership, time management and hockey pathways from different leaders in the community.
