The boy’s hockey program at the National Sports Academy has a long tradition of helping student athletes reach their full potential. Numerous alumni have gone on to colleges and universities throughout the United States to continue their careers as student athletes. NSA takes pride in the achievements of those who have represented the “Mountaineers” and looks forward to continued success on the ice and in the classroom.
The National Sports Academy takes a unique approach to developing successful student athletes. During the competitive season we take the first 4.5 hours and focus solely on player development; on the ice, in the weight room, during intense dryland training sessions, and in the classroom with video and concept development. Our goal is to provide an environment that fosters creative hockey players, with high “hockey IQ’s.”
As we prepare for the upcoming 2012-2013 season we will be welcoming players from 6 countries across 3 continents. A competitive schedule of 50-60 games against prep schools and junior teams from across the United States and Canada will allow our student athletes the opportunity to showcase their abilities to colleges and universities from across the country. Highlighting this year’s schedule will be opportunities to participate in some of the top tournaments and showcases including a trip to Minnesota to compete in the prestigious Shattuck St. Mary’s Tournament in January.
Lake Placid has twice been the site of the Winter Olympic games. Annually the Village hosts a wide variety of national and international competitions. It is home to many of our top winter athletes. NSA is two blocks from the Olympic Arena.
The Olympic Regional Development Authority oversees four ice surfaces enclosed in the Arena, including the 1980 Arena where Team USA defeated USSR in the 1980 Olympics and went on to win the gold medal. The teams' locker rooms and weight room are also located within the Olympic Arena. Along with the Olympic Arena, NSA's athletes utilize a variety of other Olympic venues in cross training for their specific sport.
