WHAT EXACTLY IS THE
ONTARIO HOCKEY ACADEMY ?
Good question. Imagine a private high school where you live on a residential campus with all of your classmates and teachers, study in small classes under the supervision of great professors, and spend your afternoons and weekends immersed in HOCKEY and some social activities. That's basically what the Ontario Hockey Academy is. We are—to use the official lingo—generally called "a private university FAMILY preparatory" school, and there are a number of features that set us apart from traditional public and even most private schools.
The Ontario Hockey Academy is a High Performance Academic-Athletic private school dedicated to providing ambitious boys and girls the very best in academics along with elite hockey. We provide on-ice hockey practices, off-ice training in our own hockey specific training facility, an extensive game schedule, and numerous scouting opportunities coupled with strong university preparatory academics in an Ontario Ministry of Education credit granting private high school. Visiting our campus during the academic year is one of the best ways to get a sense of daily life here at the Ontario Hockey Academy. We invite you to schedule a weekday visit so you will know whether we are a good fit for you. We invite you to experience it for yourself and, at the same time, give us a chance to get to know you better, too. Hope to see you soon!
OHA SPECIALIZED SPORTS SCHOOL
ATHLETES WANT TO BE TRAINED ....
LIKE THE PROSFESSIONAL ARE TRAINING
Training programs for athletes have changed over the last 20 years, hit us like technology has. Teenage athletes are demanding sport-specific training that matches the intensities of university and professional athletes. Hence the birth and success of the Ontario Hockey Academy.
I wanted a place for committed hockey athletes who wanted both elite specific hockey training and elite academics. That how we founded the Ontario Hockey Academy. Co-Founder Giles Lascelle
Although the Ontario Hockey Academy program emphasis is on hockey on ice and off ice training, OHA value academic goals just as much as athletic ones. OHA athletes that miss class, an assignment or struggle in a course will miss athletics so they can focus on academics.
Over the past years, the challenge of providing a supportive environment for players in their teen years to combine their love of hockey and their desire to excel in the college ranks has forced academies to alter their programs. It's one thing to 'leave the nest' at 17 years of age to attend university, but there is a trend of players departing home at the age of 14 to live in a community far from home to pursue their vision of playing college hockey and in national programs. THEY WANT TO TRAIN LIKE THE PROS ARE TRAINING, TO GAIN THAT COMPETITIVE EDGE. As hockey continues to grow, the path to playing at the highest level has become more complicated. Driven athletes will compete harder on a daily basis and push themselves whether being watched or not. It's an integral part of who they are and what they believe. The push increases when we raise the volume and intensity on players, as they continue to strive for their dream.
UNIVERSITY COACHES SAY
"MOST PLAYERS INADEQUATELY PREPARED FOR JUNIORS/UNIVERSITY HOCKEY"
University strength and conditioning coaches state that incoming freshman athletes lack physical and psychological preparedness for the rigors of collegiate training and sport competition. More specifically lack of lower extremity strength, overall flexibility, and core strength as well as proper Olympic lifting technique. Strength and conditioning coaches also stated that athletes lacked the mental toughness to endure collegiate sport training in addition to claiming incoming athletes lacked knowledge of correct nutrition and recovery principles.
Players need to find a school program that will further their proper development. You need to research and ask what specific coaching, on and off ice hockey training along with academics they are going to provide you to help achieve your dreams and goals, and prepare you for the next level.
