The London Knights announced a partnership with Total Package Hockey (TPH) and Blyth Academy London, to launch the London Knights Hockey Academy Powered by TPH. Blyth Academy is a full-time private school that also offers part-time, semi-private, and private courses. Blyth Academy London will now also provide a unique blend of academics and hockey athletics. Students grades 6-12 will have the opportunity to develop their hockey skills, while attending a school in a very specialized environment.
Students attending the academy will take part in off-ice training sessions powered by TPH, on-ice curriculum jointly administered by the London Knights coaching staff and TPH, video sessions put on by the London Knights coaching staff, as well as personalized, focused academics taught by Blyth Academy London. Blyth Academy London will oversee all academic learning for grades 6-12, with grades 6-8 operating out of the Western Fair, and grades 9-12 operating out of Ignatia Hall at the Mount.
All current London Knights players will be attending Blyth Academy for their education and hockey development.
“I am delighted to join with the London Knights and TPH in creating a top level hockey academy in London, Ontario. The small classroom environment, flexible schedules and personalized attention offered at Blyth have proved key to our elite athletes’ success both in their chosen sport and academically,” said Sam Blyth-Chair, Blyth Academy.
“We’re excited for this new chapter in the London Knights organization. This opportunity will allow our players to focus on their schooling while developing their hockey skills both on and off the ice,” Knights head coach Dale Hunter said. “The balanced schedule will allow our players to develop to their fullest potential. This will also give us a great opportunity to give back to the community and contribute to the success of our up and coming local talent.”
