Q2 - November 19 to February 2

Q3 - February 3 to April 22

Q4 - April 26 to June 25

Hockey Academies will operate within one of the quarters Monday thru Friday and operate daily for 10 weeks


Impact of Covid - RPM Academies

RPM has been able to modify its academies to fit within the new academic timetable, ensure course requirements, safety guidelines and protocols have been met.

The impact of Covid has forced RPM to to adjust our academies in a variety of ways to meet the needs of students, players, parents, PHO, BC Hockey, Hockey Canada, schools, school districts and municipal rinks.

Our academy fees were set last December 2019 and with Covid arriving in March we have been impacted in a variety of ways due to increased Covid costs with no opportunity to adjust our registration fees.

The Pursuit of Academic & Hockey Excellence

General Information:

RPM’s Pacific Rim Hockey Academy (PRHA) has developed a program and curriculum that provides students the opportunity to balance their educational requirements while developing their hockey skills. This program is available for students grades 6 to 12 (depending on the specific school & location) and is offered as a Semester 1 program (September to January) or Linear program (September to June) depending on the academic format utilized by each community.

In 2004 our content and curriculum was Board Approved with our course content meeting or exceeding the academic requirements for PE or a BAA (elective). This allows Pacific Rim Hockey Academy the ability and opportunity to take what we do to communities throughout the Province. 

RPM-PRHA provides personalized instruction that educates and develops students in both the physical and mental aspects required to excel in hockey. Students obtain PE credit or a board approved elective credit and work experience. 

Hockey Academies have been created to 'bridge' the gap between academics and Hockey.

The academy aspires to provide students with:

  • An opportunity to obtain the highest academic standard possible. Acquire the hockey skills necessary to play at the level the student desires.
  • Understand and further develop their fitness/wellness levels for hockey and general fitness.
