Dear Rochester Area Youth Hockey Players, Parents & Coaches,
Happy New Year From SIHA!
As we have now entered the New Year, The Sport International Hockey Academy has also started preparing for our 31st summer of hockey instruction. We are currently finalizing our 2020 staff to ensure that we will have an excellent instructional core, to work with our students this summer. Our main goal each year, is to offer every player a quality hockey education, combining an even mix of hard work and fun!
*NOTE: All of our camps offer a full day program, student drop-off is at 8:15 AM and pick-up is at 4:15 PM, which is designed to assist our working parents, during the summer months. We offer our program to students aged 6 - 17 yrs. (we do accept 5 year old hockey players, if they have fairly decent skating skills).
NEW FOR 2020
1. On-Ice Program: All new on-ice drills including; New Shooting Drills, New Puckhandling Drills & European Flow Drills as well as New Attack Triangle Drills & Tire Drills (using tires to enhance puck protection and tight turns with the puck).

You may purchase your Individualized take-home Flash Drive of your entire weekly video analysis ($20.00). The video files that will be recorded to your Flash Drive, will be MP4 files that may be easily transferred to your Laptop, Desktop Computer or TV and may be viewed on any Media Player.

4. Off-Ice Shooting Program: We will be bringing back our I-Pad video analysis program, analyzing each student's off-ice shooting techniques on a daily basis. This will be a great way for each student to see their technique on video immediately, along with our instructor's feedback to correct the various shot executions, on the spot.
Russian Training: SIHA offers daily off-ice training which is specifically targeting the development of both hockey muscles and hockey skills in an off-ice environment. We conduct all of our exercises and drills with music to create rhythm, while increasing coordination and agility. We have recently designed a new Russian Training segment for this summer - All drills are designed to improve stickhandling quickness and hand -eye coordination.
SIHA Staff: We will will have many returning staff members returning for our 2020 Instructional Tour, coming from Ferris State University (Michigan), Florida State University, Dartmouth College and St. John Fisher College. Our staff members are all hand selected individuals and are terrific at working with young hockey players and seeing the student's development, through the course of our camps.

Our SIHA web site http://siha.com has been updated and newly designed for 2020 and we are currently receiving applications for our summer program. Please feel free to review our website to see all of the smiling faces from our past camps.
We saw a record number of SIHA students last year, filling camps in most of our 2019 cities, and we expect another solid attendance this year due to the hard work of our Regional Directors, the support that we receive from our host rink and student/parent recommendations. We unfortunately had to turn away several students last year, due to our student/instructor ratio limitations. Don't be disappointed this year, please register early!
We are currently offering a 5% Early Bird Discount until March 15/2020 (single city choice) We are also offering a 10% Multiple Week Discount (2 or more SIHA weeks chosen)
