THE CENTER OF EXCELENCE MODEL

Regardless of location and facility, the format and schedule of the CoE includes:

  • Yearly academic calendar, similar to traditional school, with holidays and other breaks incorporated.
  • Strategic 36 week, 5 phase Hockey-Athlete training calendar designed to maximize growth on and off the ice.
  • At least one “late start” day per week, allowing for greater rest and recovery.
  • 20+ hours of focused, in-classroom academic time per week.
  • Minimum of 8 combined on and off-ice training hours per week.
  • Video sessions conducted on a daily basis. - Dynamic warm-up preceding the first training activity of the day.
  • Coach FA’s Mentorship Program, teaching “the process” of becoming elite, offered two times per month.
  • Daily allotted time for lunch, with athlete-friendly meal plans available in most markets.
  • Daily allotted time for healthy snacking.

"The schools that Thomas has been at, they didn't really understand a hockey player and what it took to be a hockey player like the amount of travel. At the CoE his peers get it, and the school gets it."
