Athletes make better hockey players

Hockey Alberta/Hockey Canada Long Term Player Development Initiative.

47 Years Of Excellence

For 47 years, the Sylvan Lake Hockey Camp has had a program that encompassed both on ice and off ice training. Four years ago, our program embraced the ‘Long Term Player Development’ initiative encouraged by Hockey Canada and Hockey Alberta, one that strongly recommends cross training to cultivate athleticism. It is also the cornerstone of their ‘Alternate Season Development Program’ sanction process.

Realizing a strong need for proper direction of off season training, the four Western Branches of Hockey Canada, have come together with criteria and performance measures for organizations to help deliver this programming. The Sylvan Lake Hockey Camp is indeed, proud to follow these guidelines to assure our customers that we are offering the latest in training and programming standards.

Sanctioned Alternate Season Development Provider

The LTPD program is age specific training adaptable to all abilities. The SLHC on ice program uses the latest in success oriented drills to develop the hockey skills while the off ice sessions includes age appropriate physical training including exercise drills and other sports or even simple games to develop other motor skills and hence, athleticism.

The better the athlete the more complete the hockey player.

Our off ice programming includes more…. see ‘Highlights/Articles’ and as well click on ‘About’ in the header and ‘Our Programs, in the drop down box.

SLHC Testimonial: Jarome Iginla

#88 / Right Wing for the Los Angeles Kings

I attended a few hockey camps every summer.  The one that stands our for me the most was the Sylvan Lake Hockey School.  I'm from St. Albert, AB.  Sylvan Lake was about an hour and a half away and my grandpa would take to the school for the week and we would camp there.

The school stands out to me because they not only taught on ice and had plenty of instructors, but had off ice teaching about hockey skills as well.  I also liked that at the end of the week of skill they broke us up and had one final big game where we played.  Most of all it was the time I got to spend camping with my family that I enjoyed the most.
