The BHA Varsity team trains both on and off the ice daily. Practices are held from Monday - Friday for 90 minutes. The BHA program focuses on skill development and team tactics to improve the player's skill level and understanding of the game.
Off ice training takes place either before skating sessions or after them. The Varsity team will play games in league, tournament and exhibition play. The Varsity team will compete against teams in the Canadian Sports School Hockey League (www.csshl.ca)
Every member of the BHA Varsity team is affiliated to the BHA Prep team, allowing for further development and exposure. The off-ice sessions occur at various locations throughout Banff depending on the type of workouts. The facilities used for our programs are Banff Community High School Gym and Weight Room, the Sally Borden Fitness and Recreation Centre, and the local track and field grounds.
The Banff Hockey Academy Peak Mental Performance is delivered by Richard Monette of InnerWarrior Coaching and Consulting. The PMP sessions take place in a classroom of the Banff Community High School twice a month. The sessions are one hour in a classroom setting and also through individual training. Richard attends many of the BHA home games and shares his advice to the players before and after games.
