It's springtime, the end of the hockey season and time to start thinking about registering for a summer hockey school? The following article produced by the Canadian Hockey Association, provides parents and players with key points when considering a summer hockey school.

My child wants to go to hockey school, but how do I decide if it would be worthwhile? And if so, which one? Almost all parents of young hockey players are confronted with this decision at one time or another. Trying to select what's right for your boy or girl from among the various hockey schools available is seldom an easy, straightforward decision."Should he or she go to a special skating school? What about a day school? Or should I put him in residence?" The hockey school decision can be a real dilemma for players and their parents!

This article provides some helpful guidelines to assist in the hockey school decision-making process. Since younger players form the bulk of hockey school enrolments, the information is directed primarily to parents. However, all the guidelines can be used by older players who are making their own decision on attending hockey school. As well, reference is made to special hockey schools for goaltenders and older, more advanced players with specific needs.
