10 Jan 2018 Trip To Canada Was So Successful; That We Are Going Back In 2019
“it’s a once in a lifetime trip!”
We are very pleased to announce OHA UK will return to Canada in the new season. This year’s recruits had a lot of positive feedback regarding the trip; many students felt it propelled their skill sets, helped them experience more hockey culture and was a fantastic experience as a whole.
Head coach Ryan Aldridge said “It’s a great trip all around. It’s great for our student-athletes to see how they compare to students of the same age in Canada. It’s great to play the North American style as our students aren’t used to playing such intense competition and having such little time on the puck.
Plus it’s a once in a lifetime trip. living with a Canadian family, staying in the Okanagan valley and going to local school Pen High. It really is a true life experience.”
Okanagan Hockey Academy UK will visit Penticton (Okanagan Hockey Headquarters) and play a series of games against Canadian youth teams in a bid to gain valuable development of on-ice skills. OHA UK will also participate in WHL Combine testing. The WHL in partnership with Okanagan Hockey has tested more than 10,000 athletes in North America including top Canadian Prospects. Off ice, the players will be training in the OHG facilities. Previous years have seen the recruits travel to Europe but after the trip to Canada trip was so successful OHA UK felt it was an opportunity that couldn’t be missed. Students will also have the opportunity to stay with a billet family, another great way to experience the culture in North America.
