Heimel Sports – Hockey Academy
Winter 2023-24


Heimel Sports offers a Winter Hockey Academy that runs starting Nov 8th through the end of February.  Known affectionately by seasoned participants as “Morning Skates”, the program is divided into 4 different sessions throughout the season.  Each session is comprised of 4 skates lasting one hour in length.  Skates occur on Wednesday mornings from 6-7AM.  Players are strongly encouraged to attend all 4 sessions as the concepts taught tend to progress from beginning to more advanced skills and tactics throughout the season.
