We expect that all students in the CIH Academy hockey program are committed and dedicated to achieving excellence, both academically and athletically. Our ultimate goal: to have athletes graduate from our program, go on to attend college or university, and continue their hockey careers. Comparable to many top universities, our program includes 60 minutes of on-ice training and hockey-specific strength and conditioning four-five days a week—for a full nine months.

Our coaches collaborate with students, parents, teachers, and guidance counsellors in order to find the best post-secondary fit for every student-athlete. Based on our alumni’s successes at the next level of education and play, CIH Academy has built a reputation as one of North America’s premier hockey development programs.
