Calgary is an attractive and dynamic city situated on the banks of the Bow River and close to Alberta's majestic Rocky Mountains.
The Calgary Stampede is undoubtedly Calgary's best-known visitor attraction. This event, featuring a large parade and world-class rodeo, draws more than a million people each year.
For a unique experience, visit Canada Olympic Park, where a portion of the 1988 winter Olympics were held. During the Olympics, Canada Olympic Park was the primary venue for ski jumping, bobsleigh, and luge. These facilities are still maintained for training and competitive purposes. The park is also home to a National Sports School and the Canadian Olympic Hall of Fame and Museum. Major expansions and additions are currently under way in an effort to maintain the park's status as a world-class training facility.
Other attractions, including the Glenbow Museum, Calgary Tower, Calaway Park and Eau Claire Market, are great places to visit as a family.
Being a part of the Okanagan Hockey Academy has been an extremely rewarding and unforgettable experience. It has enabled me to gain confidence and acquire life long skills expanding beyond the game of hockey. The balance between academics and athletics is superb, allowing you to achieve your ultimate success. The academy assisted me in achieving my dream of playing hockey at the NCAA level while studying Pre-Medicine. Without this caring support group, none of this would have been possible and I am forever grateful.
