Looking for a program you can trust?

We have over 50 years of experience.

The Okanagan Hockey Academy was truly life changing for me over my three years attending. I grew on the ice, learning new skills, and with all their resources I was able to become the hockey player I am today. More importantly, I grew as a person off the ice too. OHA gave me the fundamentals to becoming a good person and I can't thank them enough for that. Without OHA, I would have never been able to fulfill my dream of playing in the WHL. They are one of the main keys in my succession and for that I am grateful for them."
