The STB Hockey Academy is an elementary athletic institution in west Edmonton; a challenging and rewarding program designed to encourage students in grade four, five and six toward their individual potential.
The academy is structured to ensure student-athletes are taught the basics involved with individual skills such as skating, stickhandling, passing and shooting. Each day on the ice consists of small stations to work on these skills, as well as plenty of time for fun!
The STB Hockey Academy is also focused on developing the total athlete. Similar to the Hockey Canada model of Long-Term Athlete Development, students at STB Hockey Academy will be exposed to a variety of activities off the ice as well.
The student athlete benefits from participating in a multitude of sport and physical literacy programs throughout the elementary school ages.
STB is a caring, nurturing and safe environment focusing on both on-ice and
off-ice development of our students.
The Hockey Academy instructional staff at STB is experienced and have NHL and Hockey Canada playing and coaching experience.
The strong instructional staff offers our students highest quality of coaching in the city.
While our instructors bring extensive coaching and playing experience from all over the world at every level; it is the relationships we build with our student-athletes that sets us apart from other academies.
We enjoy coaching and teaching and it is our ability to work together as a unified group that pushes us to accomplish our goals every single day.
The STB Hockey Academy is a fee for service program offered through the Edmonton Catholic School Board.
The program is open to all students in grades 4-6 and the monthly fees for the Hockey Academy are $250 a month.
