Thrive Hockey Development

Atom (U11)

During Thrive Hockey Schools players are grouped by age and are instructed on the ice in groups designed to maximize the instructor to player ratio and ensure each player receives individual instruction and individual assessment during the course of their training.

Quality instruction and low instructor to student ratios guarantee performance results. It is our aim to help each player, both on and off the ice, strive to reach their goals and become better players.

Our Approach empowers players by providing opportunities for each player to excel at their level of sport in a positive environment that promotes individual and team success, leadership, sportsmanship, and fun!
