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.”

 

NUGS Tryouts- 2021 Fall Pre Season

Registration for tryouts for the NUGS 2021Fall Pre-Season team for higher skilled players is now OPEN. Click on link below to register.

Tryouts are:  Session 1: at South Metro Sports, Saturday August 14 at 12:00 Noon – 1:30pm; and Session 2: at South Metro Sports, Saturday August 21 at 12:00Noon – 1:30pm.

Cost $50 per player (covers both sessions- no single session option).  Players are encouraged to make both sessions, but tryouts are scheduled a week apart to accommodate vacation schedules, ACT/SAT exam days, etc. so only one session is required.  Register by clicking on this link:  https://ahshc.sportngin.com/register/form/297801595

Please keep in mind that the schedule will be subject to changes due to government mandates, etc.  Season fees will be based on practices and games played.  As with last year, the same note from Head Coach Tony Morris: “I have reached out to several teams and it appears we can make a schedule. I’m not 100% sure how many games we will get in at this point but we will try our best to get as many games as possible on the calendar. Shooting for 15. Playing teams like the PHA Prowlers, Westerville, Dayton Stealth, NKY, NE Storm, and Team Cbus. “
