About Us

Thanks for checking out the Shuswap Academy Elite Hockey School website. We are proud to say we begin our 39th year of hockey school operation, 20 years in Enderby and now starting our 19th year at Shaw Centre in Salmon Arm. We’re one of the longest running hockey schools in B.C.!

The Salmon Arm Silverbacks are excited to be the new owner and operators of the Shuswap Academy Elite Hockey School effective immediately from three legends in our community.

“Roy Sakaki, Gord Mackintosh and Tom Marsh have been amazing ambassadors to this community for a long time and we are looking forward to continuing on the great hockey school that they started 38 years ago.” - Troy Mick
“We will be honouring these three gentlemen during our opening night ceremonies for the start of the 2017-2018 BCHL season. Nothing will change for this coming August but stay tuned for some exciting news moving forward in regards to the hockey school for 2018. You will see lots of Silverbacks coaches and players taking to the ice to help develop these young hockey players on and off the ice.”

We offer a variety of programs for every kind of hockey player whether it be the budding novice player at five years old, the upstart female hockey player, or the rep player wanting to be pushed to the next level.

The success of our hockey school has been attributed to a number of things, a great facility, good programming and perhaps the strongest feature, excellent instructors.
