Leamington DSS Hockey Canada Program to be Evaluated
- National official visits school this week -
The National Manager of School Programs for Hockey Canada will be visiting Leamington District Secondary School to evaluate its Hockey Canada Skills Academy (HCSA) program on Thursday, October 23 and Friday, October 24.
The authorized LDSS hockey program was the first of its kind in the region 7 years ago and this year has expanded to 2 classes.
At the request of the school, Hockey Canada is sending Pier-Alexandre Poulin from Calgary to conduct a full audit of the course. Mr. Poulin will evaluate all aspects of the program, including funding, facility, on-ice and off-ice instruction.
The first national review at LDSS, this evaluation supports the intention of the LDSS staff to continually improve the program. The audit will ensure that the course meets the standards of the national governing body.
Mr. Poulin will observe the on-ice session from 8:00 to 9:05 AM at the Heinz Rink in the Sherk Complex on Thursday and the off-ice session from 8:20 to 9:40 AM in the large gym at LDSS on Friday. For more information, please contact program leader Butch Rickea
