Billet Families Needed


Okanagan Hockey Academy Edmonton offers high quality academic and athletic programs to outstanding student athletes from all over the world. This coming year will mark the fourth consecutive year of expansion in Edmonton. OHA began with a Male Midget Prep Team in 2015, added a Male Bantam Prep Team the following season, and added a Male Elite 15 Team for the 2017/2018 season. All three teams will continue operations for the 2018/2019 season.
 
For our program to continue, we rely on caring Billet Families. We are currently seeking Billet Families in the Edmonton area. Billet Families provide a home away from home for these young people aged 13 to 17. Billet Families receive $650/month per student athlete. If you would like more information about opening your home to a student athlete or athletes and becoming a part of our team, please contact Ryan Allen at RyanAllen@okanaganhockey.com.



Registration Now Open – Summer CK Hockey Development Camps


This camp is geared towards players at the Timbit, Novice, Atom, and Peewee levels (ages 5–6 years, 7–10 years, and 11–12 years respectively). The camp will focus on building a solid foundation of fundamental hockey skills through high repetition drills and small area games. Coaches will work with skaters to increase skating, stick handling, and passing skills to improve players’ overall hockey ability. The program is designed for players who have played hockey previously and have knowledge of basic hockey skills. Off-ice training components (Monday/Wednesday) will focus on areas specific to hockey, including conditioning and power development. Additionally, mental skills training (Tuesday/Thursday) will work on players’ mental readiness to play and teach tactics to improve performance at each level.

Timbits and Novice/Atom groups will receive 2 hours of on-ice instruction and 1 hour of off-ice instruction per day. PeeWee groups will receive 1 hour of on-ice and 1 hour of off-ice instruction per day. Each Friday off-ice session will include “Fun Friday” and allow participants time in the pool.
