The Britannia Hockey Academy (BHA) is the Vancouver School Board’s first sport specific academy.  The BHA blends regular secondary school coursework and graduation programs with a licensed Hockey Canada Skills Academy (HCSA).

BHA students attend regular academic courses each morning and are involved in hockey specific training every afternoon.  Britannia Secondary School is the perfect location for a HCSA program since it has an ice arena on site!

The Britannia Hockey Academy is designed to support the holistic development of student athletes. Both boys and girls in grades 8 – 12 are welcome to participate.

Hockey Academy students will work alongside teachers, personal trainers and Hockey Canada certified instructors to develop and follow learning plans in the areas of academics, hockey skills, personal fitness and athletic nutrition and health.  The BHA attracts student athletes who are driven and self-motivated with a keen desire to improve their abilities in ice hockey and community hockey leadership. 

To be eligible for the Britannia Hockey academy, students must have two years of minor hockey experience (or the equivalent).  Acceptance in to the BHA is partially based upon input from the athlete’s coach/teacher.
