This is an exciting program which is aimed at enhancing a students’ educational experience by providing an opportunity at school to enjoy a sport they love. With the recent in-school academy initiative of Hockey Canada, we are proud to partner with their development programs and offer the EMCS Hockey Academy in Semester 1, September to end of January. The academy schedule consists of three on-ice sessions per week. Each on ice session includes specific technical and tactical skill instruction in a small group setting as well as small area games. Specific on ice units focus on power skating, puck control, passing, shooting, offensive tactics and developing defensemen. The remaining academy schedule consists of strength training classes, classroom sessions with focus on hockey theory, sports psychology, health living, nutrition etc. Field trips to area training centers are included. The aim of the Academy is to enhance personal skill development through added ice time with quality mentorship and instruction in a safe, fun and enjoyable learning environment. Small group instruction as well as individual attention and ideal ice times help in furthering the development and leadership potential of each participant. With the focus kept on the individual player’s skills, all ages and
41
abilities at the Bantam and Midget level are able to participate together while enjoying the Academy. Both boys and girls have found the program personally challenging, rewarding and fun. If you are a committed student who aspires to the next level or one who plays for the enjoyment of the game the academy can work for you. Some of the highlights of the program include: The teacher vs. students hockey game with the entire school in attendance; Training sessions at the North Langford Recreation Center at Bear Mountain Resort. Spin, cross-fit, SPARQ training and circuit training; Dry-floor training and ball hockey; Special guest instructors; including Jr. A level coaches; Exciting other activities and trips may include bowling, swimming and golf. COURSE NOTE: Cost of program is $600 plus $85 registration fee, fees could be 10% higher depending on registration in each Academy program.
