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.
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.
