Drop by the Vanderhoof Arena on Monday mornings from 8:30 to 9:45 or on Wednesday afternoons from 1:15 to 2:30 to observe this exciting program!

The Hockey Canada Skills Academy Program (HCSA) allows students to engage in hockey training during school hours.  This is possible through the co-operation of School District 91, the District of Vanderhoof, Vanderhoof Minor Hockey and Sinkut View elementary school.

This program will offer 2.5 hours per week of on ice and off ice instruction with a focus on athletics.   Any student, boy or girl, attending Sinkut View may attend, no hockey experience or skills are necessary.

 

The (HCSA) program is in line with Sinkut View’s ongoing healthy school initiatives for which we have received the Health Education Award of Excellence in recognition of Sinkut View Elementary School’s outstanding efforts in supporting healthy lifestyle choices.  It is not intended that this be a program for only students currently playing hockey.  Marty Floris facilitates the program., Michael Dittaro helps run the program, along NVSS highschool students who earn credit for working with the HCSA students.
