Welcome and thank you for visiting our website.

Twenty-three years ago, the Banff Hockey Academy was only a dream. Through vision, planning, and a lot of hard work, we have grown to be a respected preparatory program for college-bound athletes. It hasn’t been easy, but the lessons we have learned along the way have established a program that is designed for the realization of dreams and potential.

There are many reasons for you to consider the Banff Hockey Academy:

We are committed to employing only the most dedicated and hard-working staff, each with a whatever it takes attitude. The Academy will never, under any circumstance, give up on its students.

Since we live as a family rather than an institution, our enrolment is designed to accept a limited number of students. The fact that we are a boarding program allows us to spend countless hours together; hours that impact lives and build lifelong friendships.

Our program provides strong academic and athletic focus during a time in a young man or woman's life where many distractions exist.

As some of the website photos will illustrate, we live in one of the world’s most spectacular areas. Awe-inspiring mountains and endless breathtaking vistas are a part of our daily scenery.

We are looking for driven young men and women with a passion to be their absolute best and make a positive impact upon their communities. If this sounds like you, then I encourage you to contact us – we will assist you in better understanding our mission, vision and whether the Banff Hockey Academy is right for you.

Thank you for your interest in the Banff Hockey Academy; I look forward to meeting tomorrow’s stars and leaders in person.

Yours in hockey and mentorship,


Billy G. Doherty
President
