SESSION 1 (Starting Nov 27th and Dec 2nd) is FULL and closed. Please apply to session 2 or consider our Intensive High school play on Wednesdays.

In a nutshell: Parents have been asking us for years to make something a step up from our development league. A bit more serious, a bit more competitive, but NOT the commitment of a club. Performance Academy was born.

Lead by local powerhouse coach (and all around wonderful person) Derek Ryan, our performance academy intends to push your hockey IQ. We place you on a team to work on tactical team concepts as well as improving your technical play.  Athletes will also have the option to attend 2 local tournaments with the team (additional fee).  We ask those interested in performance academy be able to commit to all but 1 practice. Those who do not adhere to this commitment will be unable to enroll in performance academy for the next session. Although we do not have tryouts, we ask for a coach reference at registration to confirm ability. Once your coach confirms the athletes attitude, willingness to learn, current level, and drive, we will enroll and charge you for the season. Athletes need to be serious about improving, have at least 1 season of team experience. A limit to 2 teams per session, 15 athletes per team for each date.
