13 Mar OKANAGAN HOCKEY UK ACADEMY INVITES APPLICATIONS FOR THE 2019/20 SEASON!
At the Okanagan Hockey UK Academy our primary focus is to promote the long-term development of each of our athletes in the classroom, on the ice, and in the community.
We believe that elite athletes need to be challenged, yet supported, in all aspects of their lives. We hold our student-athletes accountable for their efforts, attention to details, and above all their attitudes.
OHA is built on experience, knowledge, passion for our game, and above all, OHA is built on each individual’s mark left behind as they move on to achieve their goals. The commitment to excellence in all areas is what makes the Okanagan Hockey Academy a tremendous opportunity for any young and aspiring hockey player.
Applications for the forthcoming 2019/20 season are now being taken.
This is a great opportunity for all young hockey players who want to mix education with a full-time hockey programme. Our athletes arrive in September and are with us to the end of the academic year. Our programme includes education, hockey, off-ice strength and conditioning, mental training, personal and team development. We work intensively with each athlete to ensure they meet their potential, both in the classroom and on the ice.
Our staff are committed to the development of each player. The individual needs of each player are identified by analysing their academics, hockey skills, strength and conditioning and future goals. The Academy offers an all-around life experience that will benefit the student as an academic, hockey player and person.
We are extremely proud of our growing Alumni list, with players graduating from ourselves and heading on their chosen pathways to opportunities not only in the UK but also overseas. The Okanagan group allows our players to explore a number of opportunities and we work with them to help facilitate the next stage of their development, whether that be in hockey or academics.
