The program is supported through Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities and local municipalities and arenas, including the City of Dryden and the Dryden Memorial Arena. The Dryden and Vermilion Bay Hockey Canada Skills Academy is designed to challenge and inspire all students who participate. It is a complete program that includes academics, hockey skills, on and off ice strength and conditioning, mental training, and personal and team development. This is a great program for those students wanting to enhance their current skill set and also provides an opportunity to introduce the game to students new to hockey who want to play for the first time. The Academy is open to all students in grades 1-12 and operates during the school day, from September to May each year. Your Dryden Area Hockey Canada Skills Academy coaches, Brett Lobreau (elementary), Bill Reid (elementary) and Geoff Zilkans (Dryden High School) are Hockey Canada trained and are committed to the development of each player in the program by providing personalized and directed strategies for improvement. The individual needs of each player are identified by analyzing their academics, hockey skills, strength and conditioning and future goals. As hockey is a team sport, students are then taught how to use their skills to support their team. Focusing on individual improvement and team building helps maximize a student’s development potential. Since their inception, the Hockey Canada Skills Academies have been extremely successful and were recently featured on CBC’s The National with Peter Mansbridge. The Keewatin-Patricia District School Board also offers Hockey Canada Skills Academies in Kenora, Sioux Lookout, Ignace, Ear Falls and Red Lake. Visit www.kpdsb.on.ca for more information.
