Our 8U Academy offers an additional weeknight evening session of ice time where our older birth years can continue practicing and playing with top-end caliber players. Advanced skating, skills, reps, and small area games will be emphasized. The goal of this elevated, 22-week program is to prepare our older 8U players to play at the 10U Rep level next season, excel at the 10U house level and/or return as advanced players in our 8U Division next season.
8U Academy is scheduled on Wednesday evenings from 5:00 - 6:00 PM. Space is limited to 35 players - registration is first come, first served for 2013 and 2014 birth year players who have experienced at least one full season of hockey.
An Academy 1/4 zip, and additional away tournament registrations are included in the registration fee (payment plans are available).
Get a jump on the season! 8U Academy will begin on September 15th BEFORE the regular 8U season begins with Rate Skate (October 2nd/3rd).
**Please note that 8U players must be registered in Spokane Youth Hockey's regular season programming to be able to register for the Academy.
