We are very proud to have Stanley Cup-winning coach and Calgary Flames Head Coach, Mr. Bob Hartley on the CIH Academy team. As Senior Hockey Advisor, Mr. Hartley will be instrumental in the development of the CIH Academy hockey program. His enthusiasm for the new school has and continues to be a tremendous support for all of us at CIH Academy.
Drawing upon his years as an NHL coach for the Colorado Avalanche and Atlanta Thrashers, as well as experience coaching in the AHL and QMJHL, Mr. Hartley will continue to provide invaluable advice to our students and staff in his role as CIH Academy's Senior Hockey Advisor.
"I believe that hockey and academics go hand-in-hand, and that excellence in both demands hard work, dedication, team spirit, and the best resources available.
CIH Academy will strive to equip you with the skills you need to succeed in school, in hockey, and in life. Whether you go on to play professional hockey or earn advanced degrees from prestigious universities and colleges, a hockey prep school education from CIH Academy will prepare you for the challenges that await you down the road.
In my experience as coach in the NHL, AHL and QMJHL, I have seen the difference that top-notch facilities and structured training programs can make in your game. I also know that true success comes from within - from hard work, discipline, and commitment. CIH Academy works to develop your physical hockey skills but it also will develop your inner strengths, teaching all students about the necessity of dedication and teamwork in the pursuit of their goals.
The competitive hockey program at CIH Academy pairs pro-style facilities with a specialized training regimen, which is designed to target the skills you need to succeed on the ice. Using advanced equipment and techniques like plyometrics, weight training, and on- and off-ice exercises, the Academy's trainers work to develop your physical strength and mental strategy to give you an advantage on and off the ice.
The state-of-the-art pro-style Athletics and Events Centre provides a full-time training environment where you can train like the pros-and maximize your hockey potential.
You are entrusting us with what is most precious to you. We will take care of your children as if they were our own.
I am happy to serve as CIH Academy's Senior Hockey Advisor, and I look forward to seeing the development of the hockey stars-and upstanding young men and women of tomorrow."
