The Grade 9 students and staff from the Hockey Canada Skills Academy at Martin Collegiate in Regina, Sask., travelled to Alberta from April 24-26 for their annual athletic/educational experience.
The co-ed program spent one of their days in Calgary and experienced a fun and challenging on-ice skills session at the WinSport Canada facility, led by Hockey Canada staff. The students were also given a tour of the Performance Training Centre at WinSport, including a presentation on the world-class facility by the professional and well-prepared staff at the PTC.
Students were also toured through the Hockey Canada facilities, experiencing what it feels like to sit in the same dressing room as national team athletes, along with stops in the Team Canada gym and Hall of Champions, looking over the history and successes of Canadian hockey.
The day ended with an educational tour of Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame, which houses so many national treasures.
The students and staff from Martin Collegiate would like to thank Hockey Canada and WinSport Canada for a wonderful experience!
