As a new school year has just started, so too has the Boards new hockey program. The HSCDSB Hockey Canada Skills Academy is the first of its kind offered in Sault Ste. Marie and currently only offered at St. Mary’s College to Grade 9 students and Grade 7/8 students at St. Basil Catholic Elementary school.
The hour long, three day a week on-ice skill development takes the place of the traditional gym class. When not on the ice for the students will be learning the importance of a healthy lifestyle with classes on food-and-nutrition and dryland training.
While on the ice, students, both male and female, will be practicing and learning the fundamentals of the game. The goal of the program is to develop the skills of every hockey player no matter their ability.
