The Delta Hockey Academy is built on a fundamental belief in combining scholastic achievement with excellence on the ice. Our goal is to provide a world-class platform for student-athletes to succeed with the guidance of their teachers and coaches while creating an environment for personal growth and self-improvement. Our program works in partnership with North Delta Secondary School and the Delta School District to provide our students with a positive learning environment from which to develop their academic and athletic potential.
