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.
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.
Leadership, Performance & Strength
P3 Sports offers a Hockey Academy for students in grades 5-12 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.
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.
