Our hockey program is a unique individual player/goalie skills based program for boys and girls from grades 4 to 12. Developed on sound scientific and sport specific principles of long term athlete development, our program is second to none and maximizes performance.
We pride ourselves on developing complete hockey players and can do so with our in-depth hockey curriculum. Our team of Sport Scientists and Hockey Coaches have come together to develop the most comprehensive program which allows for a perfect environment to achieve optimal development.
The program is a progressive approach allowing our youngest players to increase in ice time as they mature. Our younger grades will have ice time ranging between 100-120hrs per school year while our older players will be on the ice between 135-150hrs per school year. All of which are under the guidance of our Hockey Director and Buffalo Sabres skills coach – Pat Malloy.
The Peak Centre Academy is located within the Bell Sensplex. Our facilities include 3 NHL size rinks and 1 International size ice pad. With classes on the second floor; students are literally a 30 second walk away from getting ready for ice times.
Also located within our facility is our sister company – Peak Centre for Human Performance which is the only Accredited High Performance Athlete Testing and Training Laboratory in the area. The Sport Scientists working at the Peak Centre are among the most qualified in the world having been responsible for work with over 30 National/Olympic Teams along with various CIS, NCAA hockey programs, Junior Teams and many NHL teams including: the Toronto Maple Leafs, Montreal Canadiens, Ottawa Senators, Los Angeles Kings, New Jersey Devils, NY Rangers, San Jose Sharks, Buffalo Sabres to name a few.

The centre includes; Sport Scientists, Exercise Physiologists, Kinesiologists, Sport Psychologists, Biomechanists, Nutritionists, Coaches and Personal Trainers which all play an integral part in our athletic development.
Extra Curricular Programming
Our Academy students have first priority for any evening skills/skating sessions. These can be 1 week camps during holidays or summer; weekly sessions, private or semi-private sessions etc. These are optional and provide our students with the opportunity to work on specific needs under the supervision of our qualified coaches.
Whether you need help preparing for your Atom tryouts or being scouted by the OHL or NCAA, our team has the experience and knowledge to guide you and help you achieve your goals. Our coaches have an open door policy and are available to speak with any player/families throughout the year. This could be to work on a specific skill set or it could be to get you in touch with various hockey advisors to help you reach the next level.
Our Sport Scientists will also meet with families to explain any testing results so the whole family understand what is needed to achieve the next goal. This could be for on-ice, off-ice, strength training, nutrition etc…
