About the Hockey Skills Academy
In partnership with N/C Hockey Group, the North Vancouver School District opened a Hockey Skills Academy at École Windsor Secondary School in 2004. The Academy's program is licensed by Hockey Canada as a Hockey Skills Academy. This co-ed program provides for the participation of all students, male and female, regardless of their hockey experience.
The Hockey Skills Academy is an athlete-centred program aimed at developing the whole athlete. The goal is to enhance a player's confidence and self-esteem while giving them opportunities beyond the secondary school system.
The Hockey Skills Academy program has developed and is proving to be an extremely positive experience for students. With the coordination of secondary school timetables in the North Vancouver School District, the program is accessible to students outside the Windsor School catchment area.
The program consists of the Hockey Skills curriculum as set out by Hockey Canada and the Physical and Health Education curriculum established by the B.C Ministry of Education. Students earn their grade level P.H.E. credit upon successful completion of the program. Leadership opportunities are available by request/invitation to senior students.
The Academy is open to students in grades 8–12, and will be held in either Block 4 or 8 of the secondary school timetable, depending on the cohort and location.
* Transportation to and from the Academy site is the sole responsibility of the parent/guardian.
