Welcome to the WCHA – the first hockey academy for the Brandon and Westman Region, for students in grades five through eight.
Focused on the balance of hockey development and education, the WCHA will allow students to develop their hockey skills while receiving education to complement their sporting achievements.
Players will be offered high quality training facilities to go along with an NHL-size ice surface within the new hockey development centre being built in Brandon’s west end. Included within the facility is a performance centre for improving a player’s strength and fitness level. The development centre will also include a 6 lane—100 metre track which will help increase a player’s speed, mobility, and explosiveness.More
Students from grades five through eight will spend their days focusing on both Academics and Hockey. Hockey training will take place both on the main ice and VHP Mini Rinks; off ice, students will train MNP Performance Centre. The WCHA middle school athletes will focus on six core subjects; Math, English Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, Health, and Art.
Every athlete coming through our program will receive on-ice and off-ice skill based training over the course of one year, developing the best and brightest that Westman has to offer.More
