While hockey is important to us, education is critical as well. Through our partnership with Saint Andrew´s School in Boca Raton, FL & North Broward Preparatory School in Cocunut Creek, FL will provide local, out-of- state, and international players the opportunity to get a top level education while continuing to develop as hockey players.
Local players may also choose to remain enrolled in their current high schools. This partnership will give our players the best of both academics and sports, and will provide them what they need to move on to the next level. Our players will face the top competition in the most scouted and prestigious tournaments and showcases. We will provide each player maximum exposure in order to reach their goals as student athletes at the junior hockey and college levels. We strive to create an environment that will produce well-rounded young hockey players, both on and off the ice. Education, good behavior, respect and strong work ethic describe our Academy philosophy. With players coming to our Academy from all over the world, these character traits are critical for everyone to remember and demonstrate on the way to top.
