Mission Statement 

The purpose of North Shore Hockey Development Academy (NSHDA) is to provide a training ground for elite student/athlete to master their craft on the ice and in the classroom.

NSHDA is derived from the recognition that to build high-level student/athletes it takes quality repetitions and advanced techniques. Our hockey skills are taught in a repetitive manner making the core fundamentals second nature so that players can execute them in competition. NSHDA is for the student/athlete dedicated to reaching their full physical/mental potential. 

NSHDA offers a customized approach to academics with Laurel Springs Academy, www.laurelsprings.com. Laurel Springs Academy (LSA) allows the student/athlete full control of their academics with consistent weekly schedules, virtual certified teachers, and live classes.  LSA, teachers have virtual office hours, academic support along with NSHDA’s in person certified teachers.
