Riggers Hockey Academy is an elite hockey development program based in Leduc, Edmonton and surrounding areas. We have been operating successfully for four seasons working with young athletes. We base our program on skill, development and character building. RHA’s development program consists of; intensive skill development sessions with the industries top developmental programs, power skating instruction with the industries best skating instructors, off-ice strength and conditioning sessions with certified strength and agility coaches, as well as certified and experienced coaching staff of all former elite hockey players. You can expect more skill development for your young hockey player by December than most minor hockey programs will give you all season.
Hockey Super League
Riggers Hockey Academy is excited to be part of the HSL. Last season the HSL had over 90 teams in the league. Like the HSL, we believe that consistent high-level instruction is required over a long period of time in order to reach optimal athletic development and that success should not be measured by short term wins and losses, but rather on individual skill development and athletic growth within a team setting.
Similar to the European hockey and soccer development models, we believe that it is essential to have a higher ratio of practice sessions to games in order to improve an athlete’s skills and performance in competition.
Access to professional skills coaches are mandatory requirements of acceptance into the league as a way of ensuring the athletes receive the best training and development possible. This consistency and fundamental belief in coaching and development removes the interruptions of the present conventional hockey programs and results in limited player turnover and the development of high-level hockey players and leaders.
CAN-ICE Synthetic Ice
