Introducing: Academy Hockey!

INTRODUCING ACADEMY HOCKEY — a Pre/Post season opportunity for all Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) Hockey Players in the Greater Dayton Area!


The feedback is in…and we are listening!  Our SWOHSHL and USA Hockey Players requested a better balance between hockey and their other Fall High School activities.  As a result, Academy Falcon’s decided to provide a different format for the Fall League. We believe this allows players to balance their Fall activities at a much better cost AND get in some great/fun hockey and be better prepared for the season!

New format:
> – Academy Falcon’s Fall League
> – 8 September – 30 October
> – 4 Teams (arranged for competitive play within OHSAA rules)
> – 7 Games and 2 Skill Sessions (-intro night & team selection night) Guaranteed
> – 1 game per week– either Thursday 8:30 pm or Sunday 11:00am
> – South Metro Arena, Centerville OH
> – Open to all SWOHSHL and USA High School Players
> – Cost: $180.00

Lead Coaches: Tony Thomas & Scott Mathis, former Div I Air Force Academy Players
