Academy Philosophy

We believe sport drives a passion for learning. The LPSD Hockey Academy offers a program that allows students to learn through sport. Students' maximum performance levels are ealized through deliberate practice and effort to create balance in the development of competence and character for academics and athletics.

Program Structure

  • Two sessions are "on ice", while the other two are a combination of "dry land" activities and classroom work.
  • Time for the Academy will replace instructional time typically received for physical education and health. Curricular outcomes in Health are covered through various Academy activities.
  • Students do not miss out on any academic curricular lessons.
  • Certified Teachers accompany and support the learning of all students.
  • The Academy provides the highest quality of instructors with a low student-to-instructor ratio.
  • Students participate in an enhanced Phys Ed program that will challenge the athletes mind and body to adapt to new sports and new challenges.
