Building Athletes, Building Leaders, Building Community
Leadership, Performance & Strength
P3 Sports offers a Hockey Academy for students in grades 6-12 who want to work on advancing their skills. Our academy focuses on building leadership skills, physical literacy development, and developing and perfecting hockey skills to maximize performance.
Our program is uniquely designed to help create elite athletes who are strong both physically and mentally. The academy features top divisional trainers and experienced hockey coaches to help all of our athletes reach their goals and elevate their game. We help highly motivated players to accelerate their learning and achieve their goals faster.
Making Sports Part Of Day To Day Life
Sports & Traditional Learning
We are partnered with three different schools in the Rocky View County area to make signing up for P3’s Hockey Academy a breeze. Our students don’t have to sacrifice their regular schooling experience to attend our academy. Instead, we integrate our Hockey Academy seamlessly into their regular school schedule.
Typically, our athletes leave their school during their physical education, leadership, or general option class period to lace up and hit the ice. They will spend that time working on their hockey development before returning to their regular classes afterwards.
Training Athletes To Be Strong Mentally & Physically
These three areas listed below help our trainers and coaches at P3 Sports to develop and train athletes who are strong not only physically, but also mentally. Our Hockey Academy prides itself on being influential leaders for up and coming hockey players.
Furthermore, we believe in helping all our athletes build leadership and public speaking skills. Not only will our students upgrade and fine-tune their athletic skills, but they’ll also learn the fundamentals of nutrition, sports psychology. They will also learn how to strength train and condition in a healthy manner.
Our comprehensive program focuses on the three following areas:
- Bachelor Of Leadership Development (B.O.L.D.) To Develop Leadership & Life Skills
- P3Training Indoor Physical Literacy Development For The Fundamentals Of Sports Training
- Sports Training To Hone The Skills Necessary To Maximize Performance
The P3 Advantage
Features Of Our Hockey Academy
Part of the P3 advantage includes access to our premier facility, along with our exceptional professional hockey coaches and trainers. We’re a Cochrane based Hockey Academy and an alternative to a private academy.
Our Hockey Academy works with several schools within Rocky View County. Because of this, we can offer elite level training without disrupting your child’s daily school life. They will stay in their regular classes, for the most part, just leaving during certain periods of the day. With P3, your student-athlete will be able to build their hockey skills without compromising on other aspects of their educational and social life.
Fully Rounded Training
On-Ice & Dryland Training
P3’s Hockey Academy encourages the consistent and progressive development of skills through all our development programs. An advantage of our facility is we can offer benefits like on-ice and dryland training for a fully rounded training experience. Not only do we boast helping our student-athletes build their physical capabilities, but we also help them with valuable life skills such as leadership, nutrition and public speaking.
P3 Hockey Academy is a high-performance program offering many benefits. For example, high school students can earn up to 45 high school credits by going through our Hockey Academy.
When your child goes through our program, they end up with more free time during the evenings. Our training happens during the school day, leaving time for them afterwards. Our program can also help connect these students to colleges, universities, semi-pro and pro programs. Alternatively, our program helps build a base for career education in the sport, health, and wellness sectors.
Choosing Athletes That Will Excel At P3
Academy Application Process
We choose students for our Hockey Academy by evaluating several factors. This is to ensure they’ll be a good fit and find success within our program. We assess your child by their technical skill level, academic performance, and character. These three main areas help us determine students we think might be a good fit.
Once we look at those areas, we then require applicants to participate in a tryout skate and personal interview. P3 will also conduct academic, character and athletic reviews to proceed with the application.

Our P3 Academy Schedule
