We believe sport drives a passion for learning and leading. The LPSD Hockey Academy offers a program that allows students to learn through sport. Students’ maximum performance levels are realized through deliberate practice and effort to create balance in developing competence and character for academics and athletics.
LPSD Hockey Academy is proud to be a PEP academy for the 2022-23 school year. What does PEP mean in hockey? Power Edge Pro Hockey (PEP) is Hockey Alberta's official skill development partner. Power Edge Pro is an on-ice player development system utilizing propriety equipment and training patterns.
LPSD Hockey Academy Program opens applications for the 2022-23 school year in April. The program will offer 2 on-ice weekly sessions to develop athletics, academics, and character.
The program has been an important part of LPSD's offerings for the last 10 years. Helping students engage in their schoolwork while pursuing athletic goals is a proven model that we are proud to offer within our division. The current economic situation in our community does affect our program moving forward and we would like to help out as much possible.
We have reduced the annual tuition fee for Hockey Academy for the 2022-23 school year to $1200. We are hopeful this change will make the program more affordable and accessible to families that would like to register their child.
