Our Student-Athlete Development Model
Our Commitment to Development
Testimonial from a DHA Family
Living in Delta, with two boys growing up playing hockey, the Delta Hockey Academy (DHA) was the absolute right choice for their high school years and the right fit for our family. We wanted them to have the opportunity to further their hockey career, but not at the expense of their academics. DHA meets that standard and much more. Playing the game they love every day combined with a top level training regime balanced with a high school curriculum was realized at DHA. The Academy kept the boys accountable on all fronts from day one as they navigated their way through this opportunity. Being surrounded by likeminded, goal orientated, and competitive peers has kept them on track with their academics and hockey. The coaching staff and their health performance support has been exceptional, and the academic advisors have provided valuable guidance. While we may not have always agreed with what teams that they were placed on, we trusted the process and that development was more important than status. Our youngest went from the second prep team as a second year to E15 then played as a 16yr old in the WHL. Our oldest was also on the E15 team and is on track to play Jr. A in the BCHL. DHA has helped prepare our boys for the next level of their hockey journey.
