“It goes without saying that the Okanagan Hockey Academy offers world class player development for its student athletes. However, the individuals that attend are challenged both on and off the ice. The combination of the excellent academic facilities of Penticton Senior Secondary along with the opportunity to interact with individuals from all walks of life while living away from home, expedites the maturation process for these young athletes. I have no doubt that my three years at the academy built the foundation of who I am as a person and ultimately prepared me to pursue a career in medicine.”
