USask launches hockey development academy 

May 13, 2019

The University of Saskatchewan is launching the Huskie Development Academy for hockey. The Saskatoon StarPhoenix reports that programs will be available for both male and female players, aged 7-17. “At the end of the day, it’s about developing players and making sure we have better players in the province and at the grassroots level and making sure that, at the elite level when they get here, the hockey’s better,” said USask Head Coach Steve Kook. On-ice instruction will be supported by USask athletes, adds the StarPhoenix, with a separate team leading dry-land sessions. StarPhoenix (SK)
