The Advanced Development Program allows our athletes the opportunity to showcase and prepare for the National Collegiate Athletic Association, USPORTS, the Professional Canadian Women's Hockey League, as well as the Canada Women's national ice hockey team.
About the Advanced Development Program
The Advanced Development Program allows elite female hockey players to participate in a highly competitive and favourable learning environment. By participating in the Advanced Development Program, players are exposed to high calibre coaching and training methods designed to better prepare the players to compete against the top teams in the Province, Canada, and the United States.
The Advanced Development Program, is designed to expose participants to the demands of playing at an Elite level. It allows for the long term development of our athletes by pooling our coaching resources and creating individual development programs for our players.
The goals of the program include: to introduce players, families and staff to high performance hockey, the Hockey Canada Program of Excellence and the Provincial Women’s Hockey League; to create a unique and special life and hockey experience for all players and staff involved; and to develop players and staff both on and off the ice.
The Advanced Development Program seeks to provide an elite program with high standards of commitment, leadership and skill development. The program wants to prepare players to play at the highest levels possible such as; University, and possibly Provincial and National levels. It will do this by creating a culture of continuous improvement of the entire team and all players rather than individual statistics and winning all games.
The defining factor in success within this program is the player and their commitment and dedication to achieve these goals. In order to achieve we will make every effort to develop individual skill. The goal is to get players to use their strengths to make the team stronger and instill confidence in the player.
