What they have to say about OHA
The Ontario Hockey Academy was such a great experience for me. The coaches put you throught workouts that challenge you and take you out of your compfort zone. After the first week, I seriously did not think I was going to make it through the year, but I stuck with it. The progress that I made has been more than I have ever seen before. The coaches do this by putting you in game-like situations and challenge you to try things dirfferently which force you out of your comfort zone and out of your bad habits. My fitness level improved drastically and I feel as if I have become a different player. I recommend OHA to anyone who is looking to take their hockey skills to the next level.
"The Ontario Hockey Academy was without a doubt a catalyst in my development as an academic and hockey player for the last 3 years. The combination of the great knowledgeable coaching staff and talented teammates made for an intense and competitive environment. The workouts were very physically demanding including intense plyometric workout. I also liked that I was often challenged mentally as well as physically. Throughout the year it was easy to see my progress. Overall, I had a great experience and would recommend OHA to any serious hockey players looking for AAA hockey program and challenging academic institution."
Thank You Ontario Hockey Academy. OHA is small and its noticeable quickly the family atmosphere and caring staff. Due to the nurturing family environment, daily support from the teachers as well as staff, and 24/7 supervision, our sons were set up for success. We loved to see how respectfully teachers and students communicate and live together. Our sons have made international friends, learned about different cultures and are immersed in Canadian life. Our thanks goes out to all the employees of the Ontario Hockey Academy who have done an amazing job: caring, teaching students, great coaches, all investing a lot of time not only for the academic success, but also helping them to grow and to find their own personal hockey path.
Ryan’s determined approach since attending the Ontario Hockey Academy towards pushing himself to being the very best he can be has been exceptional. His obvious on ice improvement is a true testament to the development he has received. As a parent it has been an absolute privilege to witness the growth in Ryan’s skills as a player as well as his character and maturity as a person over the last two years. Ryan is an outstanding individual and he has a tremendously bright future ahead of him in hockey and in life. Thanks Kim and OHA teachers and staff.
‘’Since I started training with the Ontario Hockey Academy and with OHA goalie coach Francois, I have been exceeding expectations as a goaltender. Every part of my game has improved. I was drafted by the Cornwall Colts, a Jr. ‘A’ team outside of Ottawa. They couldn’t believe how much I’ve improved over the past year. The Midget AAA league is extremelly competitive. As a result of this, I got to start in my first Jr ‘A’ game, as a 16 year old, where we won, beating one of the top ranked teams in the country and I was named the games first star. I appreciate all of Francois’ hard work, dedication and support he puts into being my goalie coach. He pushes me to ’’
