DHA Spring Development Program

This registration page is for Delta Hockey Academy student-athletes interested in attending additional on-ice spring development sessions on Tuesdays & Thursdays from March 28 to June 15 during academy hours. 

The Spring Development Program will include 24 on-ice skill development sessions over 12 weeks (30 hours total) following a specific development curriculum which will include four areas of focus. The program will be lead by DHA coaches Tim Preston, Austin Vetterl, Mike Aviani, Richard Mueller, Brent Thurston, Shawn McBride and Tyler Chambers. The four areas of focus will include: 

  • Skating & Edge Work – 6 sessions (March 28 – May 4) 
  • Shooting & Scoring – 6 sessions (March 28 – May 4)
  • Skills & Situational Training – 6 sessions (May 9 – June 15) 
  • Defence & Forward Position-Specific Training – 6 sessions (May 9 – June 15)

Spring ice times on Tuesdays and Thursdays will be scheduled during your regular winter practice slot. Student-athletes that do not opt-in to the spring development program will have additional study time at the rink during their team’s spring skills ice slot. Goalies are invited to register for these sessions as well at a discounted rate — we will use goalies for all sessions except “Skating & Edge Work.”
