Our on ice program follows the Hockey Canada’s Long Term Player Development initiative which stresses age and skill appropriate fundamentals starting with and emphasizing skating. From there we transition into all other fundamentals including puck touches and handling, passing shooting and team play. Off ice Activities stress age appropriate character and team building to go along with the latest all around physical training designed at ‘athletic’ development. Athletes make better hockey players.
After meeting with officials at the Jasper Activity Centre everything has been assured for 2021. The dates for 2021 are now August 15-20. We are extremely happy that everything has worked out and we are busy resetting our program for our 23rd “Rocky Mountain Hockey Experience”!
Whistlers Campground is open once again after renovations, but it still is imperative that you secure accommodations prior to registering, to not be disappointed.

Your equipment stays in the dressing room all day but at the end of the day everything must be taken out because we have ice rentals at night and the rooms have to be cleaned.

Please sit on the bench or stand in the aisle – Do Not Sit on the Boards!Never go on the ice until an instructor tells you it is OK to do so.
- No Food – There is no food allowed in the dressing rooms. If you spill anything it can end up on another student’s equipment, so please eat your food in the Lobby Area.
