PRMHA ACADEMY PROGRAM ANNOUNCEMENT

PRMHA launches its Academy Hockey Program for the start of the 2019/20 season. In partnership with SD47, PRMHA will operate a PIE (Partnership in Education) hockey program. Any PRMHA member in grades 8 – 12 can enroll.

For this coming season our Midget Rep team and affiliate players will participate in a full time hockey program during A&B blocks of their class schedule. The academy will run for the first semester from September to the end of January. They will receive 4 ½ hours of ice per week along with the balance of their time spent off ice training & classroom activities. Any other player can sign up for the part time hockey skills training sessions which run Monday & Friday mornings.

Instruction for the program will be delivered by Joe Caldarone (Hockey Canada Skills Coach), Sean Maguire (Goalie & Skills Coach), Chad Van Diemen (Hockey Canada HP1 & Midget Rep Head Coach) and Jodi Mastrodonato (Brooks Teacher and program liaison). Administration will be handled by Rick Hopper (PRMHA – Director of Operations).

The cost for the program will be $1500.00 for full time and $500.00 for part time, this is in addition to any PRMHA registration or team fees. Payments for the program are payable to PRMHA and will be due September 15th 50% and Dec 1st 50%.

SD47 will provide bussing as indicated in the schedule and students will receive credits based on their participation.
