What we offer:
Academy training sessions

University/College Recruiting Showcase Programmes
- US College Recruitment Showcase Tournament – each February – Two Teams – U16 and U19 – Tryouts are open to ALL athletes from all clubs and all high schools. Tryouts take place in October/November and once the team is selected the programme consists of training and preparation leading up to the tournament, as well as support through the recruiting process.
- Ideal age to begin the process is in grade 9 or 10 so that you get on the radar early and college coaches have an opportunity to follow your development. Offers for scholarships are usually made in grade 11, although many of our athletes have been picked up in grade 12. The earlier the better in terms of having the greatest exposure with college recruiters.
Private or Small Group Training
- Additional small group training to help prepare athletes for consideration by Canadian university recruiters, US College recruiters, provincial team selections, national team selections, Quest for Gold selections, or just to learn and master techniques.
