The Okanagan Hockey Training Centre is a state-of-the-art facility designed to provide a unique development opportunity for each of our student-athletes. Integrated within the 90 million dollar South Okanagan Events Centre, the OHTC consists of three NHL size ice surfaces (including Memorial arena), private Academy Locker Rooms, Athletic Therapy room, a full size classroom equipped with professional video editing equipment, Skill Centre (off campus), 5000 square foot performance centre and cutting edge training equipment, as well as our administration offices.
Situated in the beautiful South Okanagan, Penticton is a community with a long history of supporting student athletes. The small town feel provides a great, family oriented environment for our student athletes to prosper in, and the easy access to beaches, wineries, and outdoor activities makes it a great location for family visits.

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.
