“Promoting Respect, Responsibility and Readiness for the Lifelong Learner”
“The Spectrum Hockey Program has been a foundation of our boy’s personal development and success on and off the ice.”
“It wasn’t ‘just about the hockey.’ The program offered our boys the opportunity to be disciplined, respectful, learn how to stay on task & time, and shaped them into grounded athletes on and off the ice.”
“What sets the Spectrum Hockey Academy apart from any other is the way they stress academics, supporting your peers, and attention to detail.”
“The dedication, commitment, and character building from hard work that was expected of him through his 4 years of the Spectrum Hockey Academy have served him well and are life skills that he will always have.”
“What we didn’t realize at the time was how much the program prepares these guys for what lies ahead. Learning to be accountable on and off the ice, balancing school, organizing his time, and being a dedicated athlete was invaluable for Nolan as an 18 year old Freshman at the University of Michigan.”
