    Valleyview Secondary School is very proud to be the home of our local Hockey Canada Skills Academy. Entering our fourth year of operation, our academy provides both male/female hockey players of all levels an opportunity for elite level coaching/training for our student-athletes while continuing with their regular academic course studies at Valleyview Secondary School. The schedule for our student-athletes has each of them enrolled in 2 blocks of hockey academy (1 per semester) throughout the school year and receive on-ice instruction an average of 2.5 times per week (60 minutes each). Students are also scheduled into dry-land training/programs and classroom instruction following the Hockey Canada curriculum. Under the leadership of Head Coach George Cochrane, our academy is very fortunate to also have the following individuals as part of our support coaching staff: Associate Coach Don Hay- Kamloops Blazers, Dan De Palma- Kamloops Blazers goaltending coach, Tyler Love- World Goaltending, Kyle Allen- KMHA, Scott Ferguson- Edmonton Oilers, Chris Murray- Montreal Canadiens, Jan Ludvig- New Jersey Devils, Murray Baron- St. Louis Blues, Nina Hrycewich- power skating instructor, Greg Kozoris- Acceleration Fitness/Fitness consultant, Colin Robinson- Kamloops Blazers athletic therapist and Peter Soberlak (Sports Psychologist-TRU and the Kamloops Blazers). The academy is based out of Valleyview arena as our practice facility and Acceleration Fitness as our dry-land training center. We currently have 2 sections of classes. All participating students are enrolled at VSS and pay an annual academy fee of $900 to pay for all associated costs.
