Program History

Spectrum Hockey Skills Academy was the first of its kind to be offered in the Greater Victoria School District starting with thirty students. Since the inception of the program in 2005 participation has grown to over 90 student-athletes in grades 9 – 12. Students spend 25% of their instructional time in academy blocks. It is structured and dedicated to not only training and developing players to reach the next level in the sport of hockey, but also to support the academic and citizenship potential of every student-athlete. Both on-ice and off-ice programs are intensive in their design in developing hockey skills, tactics, physical strength, speed, endurance and mental performance. 

Educators & instructors are passionate towards supporting each athlete in meeting their potential in academics, developing healthy lifestyle habits, and strong leadership skills as citizens in the community. Students selected to participate in Spectrum Hockey Skills Academy must provide evidence of good progress in their academic subject areas, socially responsible behavior, along with good work ethic and positive attitude.
