KMHA is pleased to announce its continuing partnership (15th consecutive year) with School District 23 Hockey Canada Skills Academy
KMHA is pleased to announce, in its continuing partnership (15th consecutive year) with School District 23 Hockey Canada Skills Academy, the opportunity for the top Bantam and Midget aged players to enroll in a Bantam/Midget Advanced Skills Program mirroring the program the Okanagan Rockets Major Midget team has in place. This program has had excellent reviews and feedback from parents and players this season with several players already planning to return next year.
This program will be offered for students that attend Okanagan Mission Secondary or Rutland Senior. All the students will be able to cross-enroll, for example students that attend Rutland Senior Secondary as their home school can attend the Hockey Skills sessions at CNC, and either complete the school day at OKM or go back to RSS. Note, KSS students can enroll but must work out their school schedule at KSS to correspond with the HCSA class.
The program is not mandatory and players who want to play on KMHA Bantam T1/T2 teams or Midget T1/T2 are not required to attend OKM or RSS to compete and earn a spot on the respective teams.
KMHA fully endorses this program and believes it is an excellent opportunity for players to develop their core hockey skills with professional instructors such as Chad Carder (goaltending) Evan Marble (power skating), Kim Gellert (Kelowna Rockets skill coach) Ryan Jorde (Buffalo Sabre draft pick, and skills instructor) and other professional skill development coaches. Visit cohockeyskills.ca for complete program information. (please note: SD23 HCSA is a non-profit program).
