Students will participate in the on ice and off ice programs before, during and after school. Elementary and Middle School students will participate in the regular P.E. curriculum with lunch time dryland and character building one day a week.
The MEI Hockey Academy intends to provide high performance training and Christian values-based character development to participating athletes. The academy has an overall purpose of developing young people so they will be well prepared to meet the most significant challenges of school, athletics and post-secondary life.
The MEI Hockey Academy is committed to producing high-quality hockey players as well as players with good character. Many hockey alumni have gone on to star in high-level hockey leagues throughout Canada and the USA. The Hockey Academy also hands out many awards in their yearly trophy case and keeps records on various skills including shooting, skating, agility and reactions. Three times a year the players are tested using the Sport Testing Digital Equipment for exact results and data that helps players see improvements and helps them know where they stand so that they can work specifically on certain weaker skill sets. These scores help determine the MEI “all time record holders” for each tested area. These stats are displayed on the website under “Record Holders” and at the rink.
Check out our 1 minute MEI Hockey Canada Skills video to see a glimpse into what it is all about.

We are thankful to have a great relationship with Hockey Head Quarters to make this all possible.
