In 1961, three clubs, the Glenora Skating and Tennis Club, the Braemar Badminton Club, and the Royal Curling Club, joined together to become the Royal Glenora Club. The Club is home to a newly renovated arena, an indoor glass enclosed pool that features a retractable roof, along with multiple tennis, squash and badminton courts. The Club is world renowned in Figure Skating as the training facility for World Champions such as Kurt Browning, Jamie Salé and David Pelletier.
Edmonton, also known as the City of Champions, is the capital of the province of Alberta, located on the North Saskatchewan River in the central region of the province. This area offers some of the most fertile farmland on the prairies. It is the second largest city in Alberta after Calgary, with a population of 877,926 and 1,243,000 in the Greater Edmonton Area.
At the end of grade nine, my parents and I decided it would be beneficial for both my hockey and scholastic development to attend OHA the next year. We toured other hockey academies, but ultimately felt OHA was the best fit for me. The coach’s and trainer’s expertise allowed me to learn more about the game, further develop my skills, strength and stamina and readied me to enter the WHL as a competent and confident 16 year old. With the support of great teachers and tutors my grades improved and I made friends that will last a lifetime. I highly recommend OHA for the player who is looking to take their game, grades and life skills to the next level."
