Skaha Lake Hockey Skills Academy


We are very excited to announce that Skaha Lake Middle School is planning to offer a Hockey Canada Skills Academy in September 2017.  The Hockey Academy is a partnership between Hockey Canada, Okanagan Hockey Group and Skaha Lake Middle School.

The Academy is available to students, male and female, entering into Grades 6, 7 or 8 in September 2017.  Students of all abilities are able to participate in the Academy.  Students will be required to have a full set of equipment and a positive attitude in order to participate.

The program will run from September to June and will consist of 57 on-ice sessions of 55 minutes each.  The on-ice sessions will begin in mid-September and the last on-ice session will be at the end of June.  Office sessions will be for classroom, dry land, health education, fitness and seasonal sport skill development (soccer, baseball, volleyball, etc).  Each group will be on the ice from 8:40 to 9:35 am on their designated ice session days.  Transition time will be given for students to change and return to school.  Transportation to the arena is the parents' responsibility but transportation back to SLMS will be provided.

Cost for the program will range from $800 to $1,100 per student, depending on student participation.  In order to commence registration we will require a deposit of $250 and a completed registration form which can be found here:
