ACCELERATED MULTISPORT PATHWAY
The AMP Hockey Academy is dedicated to building a stronger and
safer future for youth hockey in Canada.
We specialize in youth development hockey programs for boys, girls, and sledge hockey players based on multisport training, small area games, and long-term development principals.
OUR 5 CORE BELIEFS
1. WE BELIEVE IN BRAIN SAFETY
WE BELIEVE THAT OVER 75% OF SPORTS INJURIES ARE PREVENTABLE AND DIRECTLY RELATED TO FATIGUE, SKILL LEVEL, INEXPERIENCED COACHING AND REFEREES.
2. WE BELIEVE IN PROFESSIONAL COACHES
WE BELIEVE THAT YOUNG CHILDREN IN THEIR HIGHEST AND MOST IMPORTANT DEVELOPMENT STAGES NEED THE MOST EXPERIENCED AND DEDICATED COACHES. KNOWING WHAT TO COACH, HOW TO DEMONSTRATE, AND WHEN TO COACH A CHILD IS INVALUABLE.
3. WE BELIEVE THAT SIZE MATTERS
WITH OUR CROSS-ICE 3VS3 DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM, WE HAVE SMALLER ICE SURFACES AND SMALLER ROSTERS, WHICH INCREASES THE NUMBER OF REPS AND OPPORTUNITIES TO DEVELOP THEIR SKILLS. WE BELIEVE THAT ONE AMP DEVELOPMENT SESSION IS THE DEVELOPMENT EQUIVALENT OF PLAYING 15 FULL ICE 5V5 GAMES.
4. WE BELIEVE IN MULTISPORT DEVELOPMENT
STUDIES ARE CLEAR, SINGLE SPORT ATHLETES GET HURT UP TO 70% MORE THAN MULTISPORT ATHLETES. WE WERE NOT DESIGNED AS HUMANS TO SKATE ON ICE, REPETITIVE MOVEMENTS OF THE SAME SINGLE MUSCLE GROUPS LEADS TO LONG-TERM AND/OR PERMANENT INJURY.
5. WE BELIEVE IN FAMILY TIME
WE HAVE SET SCHEDULES, SET DAYS, SET TIMES, SET LOCATION, WITH NO MANDATORY VOLUNTEERING, NO MANDATORY FUND-RAISING; WINSPORT. IT'S GAME-CHANGING FOR MOST FAMILIES, ESPECIALLY WITH MULTIPLE CHILDREN.
ABOUT PX3 AMP
The AMP Hockey Academy is founded by former hockey player Brad Layzell.
The vision is to create one of the strongest and safest youth hockey and multisport development programs in the world for boys, girls and sledge hockey players aged 4 to 18 years old.
The program promotes evidence-based solutions for brain safety and injury prevention through education, training and advanced medical testing and assessments by leading medical and preventative health providers.
Player development program is based on having highly experienced coaches teaching the kids a variety of different sports and proper athletic movements to develop a much greater set of skills for hockey, and life.
With our curriculum-based approach to long-term athletic development, along with smaller playing surfaces, smaller rosters, and professional coaching, we are able to significantly accelerate learning, safety, and build a deep love for the sport.
For children in their youngest and highest development stages, it's the chance to build an athletic foundation that will last them a lifetime.
