Our programs provide opportunities for any player to improve their game.
Because there is so much to learn, we offer a variety of programs to start you on the right skate.
The CIH Academy will offer a number of development programs throughout the year. These programs are designed to improve the player’s abilities, confidence and their level of enjoyment in hockey. Participants in our weekly sessions will receive high-quality coaching with low staff to student ratio during 1 hour of on-ice instruction every week for 6 consecutive sessions.

These sessions work on developing a goaltender’s overall ability and technique by improving their balance, positioning and lateral mobility. Goalies will enhance their performance in the net as they focus on angles, rebound control, playing the puck as well as practice defending against breakaways and rush attacks.
Our goalie camp is designed to maximize learning potential in young goalies of ANY caliber, from beginner to advanced. No matter if they are strapping on the pads for the first time, or are playing elite level hockey, all of our participants will benefit from specialized and skill level geared instruction.
