Downtown Toronto Hockey School
As in all Blyth Academy Yorkville programs, our hockey and ice sports training is centred on giving our students the opportunity for experiential learning that is geared toward their individual interests.
Blyth Academy is dedicated to excellence and to the development of self-confident individuals of exemplary character and skill. Our student athletes are prepared through experience and training in the sports that they love.
The benefits of participating in the hockey training program during the school day is that it allows the students the time to focus on their academics and balance the time spent between home, school, and community.
Our aim is to create a challenging and supportive learning environment where instructors, coaches and students work together with the goal of achieving academic and athletic excellence. Our coaches nurture students’ individual athletic talents, help them understand the complexities of the sport, and teach them to commit to dedicated training in order to excel.
