Students will play in their respective age groups, or in line with their individual abilities, so that each player has an opportunity to develop rapidly by receiving full attention from their instructors.
Players will receive training and instruction in the fundamentals and application of techniques in game situations from experienced instructors, being exposed to the best instruction available. In addition to the daily ice time, students participate in an extensive off-ice program which focuses on core strength training, cross-sport training, and plyometerics specifically designed for the needs of young hockey players.
The Okanagan Hockey School Skills Centre focuses on shooting and puck management skills. The Regular Skaters Program utilizes the Skills Centre daily. The Skills Centre is comprised of stations using nets, targets, radar guns, shooter tutors, pucks, stick handling pucks, and stick handlers.
