Our PEAK Hockey Academy is in its 7th year in Fort McMurray Public Schools (formerly known as Edge Skill Academy). PEAK Performers have made higher level teams at both provincial, national and international levels, including the Alberta Winter Games teams and Team Alberta for the Arctic Winter Games. This is a great accomplishment for our student athletes and is a statement to the quality of our hockey instruction provided.
The Hockey Academy allows students to work on developing their skills to supplement what they are learning with the local Minor Hockey Association or community team. Our student athletes are in skill specific training on the ice two days/week. The Jr. and Sr. High athletes are on the ice every Tuesday and Thursday morning at MacDonald Island from 8-9:15 a.m. and our Elementary student athletes are every Monday and Wednesday morning from 8:15-9:30 at the Casman Center.
Our PEAK Athletic Academy monitors the achievements of our athletes through a series of in sport testing protocols used with provincial/national hockey programs. These tests are used to identify the areas in which a student is making improvements in hockey development. Our PEAK Academy also tracks the individual’s academic performance in classes/courses and ensures that they are maintaining levels of academic standard.
