Hockey players must embrace an elite approach to training, nutrition and recovery if they want to achieve optimal on-ice performance.
The six-week program starts on July 2, 2017 in Penticton, BC and is limited to 16 skaters (born in 2001 or older). The cost of the program is $7200 plus tax.
This program is to teach young hockey players the importance of training smart, eating well and recovering properly which will have a tremendous impact on them and their careers.
Every athlete will have a functional movement screening test done so that their program can be tailored to build on their strengths but most importantly develop their weaknesses. In order to make strength and cardio gains from the program the athlete needs to be fueling their body correctly. The athletes will be fed with the proper foods for both breakfast and lunch along with three visits from a sports nutritionist. As the athlete’s body develops the mind must follow. There will be two visits from a sports psychologist dealing with such topics as game preparation, handling success and failure. Each athlete will also receive three weeks of power skating and three weeks skill development.
The camp is limited to only 16 skaters and registration is by application.
I made the biggest leap forward as a player after having the opportunity to work with Steve O'Rourke and the staff at the Transcend Training Program last summer. Being with other motivated, elite athletes prepared me to make the move up to Junior A."
I can confidently say the Okanagan Hockey Academy had an impact on me as a hockey player but more importantly as a person. OHA taught me to bring my best self in all aspects of life including as a student, player and community member. I learned many life skills during my time at OHA that I will take with me much longer than my playing career and that is the greatest gift the staff, coaches, billets and community gave to me. I strongly believe I am a more well-rounded individual because of my time at OHA. I hope any young hockey player with drive, determination and a passion to become a better player and person is able to have the chance to attend somewhere so amazing. For me OHA gave me the best balance of academics, athletics, family and social life. I am extremely grateful for my time at Okanagan Hockey Academy.
