Hill Prep Hockey

The Hill Academy Prep Hockey Program is meticulously designed to enhance individual skill development and provide players with a positive skill-building environment that emphasizes hard work, development, discipline, and fun.

The Hill Prep Hockey program is designed to best prepare our players for the next level while providing OHL, USHL, BCHL, and NCAA exposure and opportunities.

We provide a safe and educational learning environment while making our players accountable for their actions both on and off the ice.  The Hill Prep Hockey Program provides a rigorous and elite level, school year round schedule with daily practices with professional level coaches.

The Hill Academy attracts players that are first and foremost quality people. A Hill Academy prospective student-athlete will be examined for academic, athletic, and personal qualities, all which will be taken into consideration in the admissions process.

Varsity Hockey

The Varsity Hockey Program at The Hill is based primarily around skill development. As opposed to our U16 and U18 Prep programs, which are team based, Varsity players continue to play for the minor hockey association teams that they belong to.

It is a complete on and off ice development program which includes on ice sessions with professional skills experts and off ice information sessions with sport and industry people.

In addition, the Varsity Program participates as a team to represent The Hill Academy at various tournaments around the GTA. Again, we do our best to ensure that these games do not conflict with their minor hockey schedules.

Girls Hockey

This program is specifically designed to enhance the development of players born in 2006 and 2007 and will run as a girls AA program. Female hockey players are now being recruited at the university level as early as the Bantam level and by addressing full development at the Pee Wee age, players will be better prepared on and off the ice for the upcoming opportunities that will be presented.

The Hill program is able to have the three main aspects of a student-athletes experience (on-ice development, off ice training and academics) work in conjunction with each other while providing the athlete proper time time for rest and recovery so they are able to maximize each session or class to reach their full potential.

The program will be led by former NCAA coaches and/or players who understand what it takes not only to make it to that level, but more importantly, to succeed.
