Academy Hockey Club is a non-profit organization focused on increasing participation in ice-sports in the greater Dayton/Cincinnati area. Our goal is to provide FREE learn to skate/play opportunities for area youth — because we strongly believe sports creates better citizens.
OUR VISION IS TO:
- Provide High School Players more opportunities to Play
- Created an Academy High School Fall League with more than 50 players per year
- Added a Post Ohio Districts (POD) Tournament as a competitive and fun way to end a season
- Installed the 40×60′ Academy Outdoor Pond, the area’s first synthetic Ice Training Facility
- Started the Southwest Ohio High School Hockey League (SWOHSHL) All Star Game since Dayton/Cincy players rarely were invited to OHSAA All Star Games
- Increase ice sports participation in the Dayton/Cincinnati Area by providing a free-to-use outdoor synthetic ice-skating facility
- This eliminates Cost as a barrier of Entry for youth players/skaters
- Develop & utilize certified coaches for FREE lessons
- Always give our youth free access to ice sports, like Warroad, Minnesota’s model. See their video here!
- “In Warroad, the mindset is to make sure they always have access to it.”
