NSHDA's “The Academy”, founded in 2020, is dedicated to providing a positive and enthusiastic development program for the committed student-athlete. The atmosphere will cater to the player looking to play at their highest level possible.

“The Academy” provides a comprehensive development and mentorship program throughout the calendar year with Coach Taylor in the player's corner every step of the way!

“The Academy”

  • Individual player assessments, including video analysis
  • The program runs from September 8th to May 28th
  • Each player receives 130 ice touches, 160 Can/Ice Synthetic and dryland training
  • Once a month there will be a quest speaker ranging from health to motivational

Remote learning with a proctor is completely optional; students can use the public school curriculum or my recommendation of Laurel Springs Academy. The proctor/ teacher will be there to assist the students.

School year started September 8th, 2020.
