Your support to Dayton area Learn to Skate/Play and high school ice hockey is so important and deeply appreciated.  The Academy Hockey Club is THE area organization dedicated to building and developing playing skills and good character at both the Learn to Skate/Play hockey level and at the high school hockey level in southwest and central Ohio.

“It’s Never too late to learn” to play hockey

This is for developmental players with zero/no experience, to less than 2 seasons experience — middle school and high school players.  Our goal is to get players started in 6-8th grade, so when they hit high school,  they are ready to play on their high school OHSAA teams. So please pass the word!
Only 25 slots are available, so make sure to register. Academy can help with slightly used gear for newbies.

Never Too Late to Learn skates:

(Next session dates will be announced as soon as they can be scheduled)

ALTER KNIGHTS

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.”
