STUDENT-ATHLETE MID-DAY PROGRAM
WHAT IS THE STUDENT-ATHLETE MID-DAY PROGRAM?
North American Preparatory Hockey Academy or NA Prep has developed the Student-Athlete Mid-day Program for the hockey player in collaboration with the local schools. NA Prep has created a pathway that will be implemented at the K-12 grade levels and will enable committed student-athletes to develop his/her skills at a higher level. NA Prep allows student hockey players to take part in private group training sessions with higher-level hockey training during school hours. Through the cooperation of the schools, this is now possible. Now families can schedule player training that will allow hockey student-athletes to participate and train 2 - 4 times per week. During our private group lessons, we focus on skill development which will take place between September and June. In addition to 1 1/12 hours of daily on-ice instruction, we will soon be offering an off-ice strength and conditioning component making NA Prep the most comprehensive hockey program in the area.
WHO IS PROVIDING INSTRUCTION?
With over twenty years of coaching experience, Jami “JJ” James will be on ice daily to coach the kids. Periodically guest coaches will drop in to assist coach JJ.
Thanks to the cooperation of the local schools, student-athletes attending NA Prep will be able to fit our development program into their schedule. There will be four on-ice development sessions per week (Monday thru Thursday) and will run from 2:15 pm - 3:45 pm at Stumptown IceDen. NA Prep and a daily carpool will transport the players from schools to the Stumptown IceDen.
The NA Prep Mid-Day Program is the only mid-day hockey program approved by WhitefishSchool District. Schedules of students participating in the program have their class schedule arranged so no core subjects will be missed in order to attend training. Student-athletes enrolled in Whitefish Middle School (grades 7 & 8) and Whitefish High School (grades 9-12) will be dismissed at 1:37 pm. Contact Coach JJ to learn how to make arrangements with the school.
Approximately once per week, players will take part in our off-office training program, from 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm.
