KELOWNA DEFENCE CAMPS LED BY FORMER NHL DEFENCEMAN JOSH GORGES
PENTICTON DEFENCE CAMPS LED BY FORMER NHL DEFENCEMAN ROBERT DIRK
The focus of this camp, both on and off the ice, is to teach players the individual skills and tactics required to become a better defensive player and defenceman. A valuable skill-set in today’s game for both a forward and defenceman.
This camp provides all players (Forwards and Defence), aged 10-15, the opportunity to improve the defensive side of their game, while enhancing skating agility, mobility, puck management and checking skills under the professional instruction of former NHL defenceman Josh Gorges (Kelowna) or former NHL defenceman Robert Dirk (Penticton).
Throughout the week, we will cover the following:
2.5 hours of Daily Ice Time | Hockey Specific Dryland including Strength & Cardio Training | Off-Ice Puck Skills Training | 7:1 player to instructor ratio | Written evaluation and feedback

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.
