New SAH Golf Academy 2021
Serious Academy of Hockey is thrilled to announce the addition of a Golf Education Program to our flex education program, for dedicated student-athletes seeking to succeed at the next level in education and sports.
The program will begin in January 2021, continuing a tradition of preparing student-athletes to succeed at the next level in education and sports through flexible academic education, and focused coaching while maintaining the player's confidence and well-being as top priorities.
The addition of golf to our offering of our program is an exciting development for SAH, and we’re thrilled to work with Philip and Patty Jonas and their Golf Academy at the Saskatoon Golf and Country Club. Their Academy was relocated to “The City Course” this summer from Vancouver where they have been instructing and coaching juniors and adults for over 30 years. “We are excited to be partnering with SAH and add to the development of student athletes on and off the course. Whether a student wants to start to play, golf for fun or compete, we will help them become the best they want to be.”
The program will be offered three levels, Beginning, Sport or Recreation and Competitive level of players. Details and registration will be available soon!
Preschool Learn to Skate
This program is perfect for the beginner skater to get comfortable on the ice
"Just wanted to thank Randy, Dave and all the coaches at SAH for the attention to detail and personal development they invest in all their athletes, and specifically my daughter Brooklyn. We live in Moose Jaw, but the drive to Saskatoon is worth every penny. Your camps and practices are second to none, and we leave every one feeling that you are looking out for her personal development, and that she has come out of each one a better player."
"The Serious Academy of Hockey offers a terrific program with top level instructors and a very challenging and creative curriculum. The young athlete is exposed to on and off ice instruction that will improve skill and game scenarios in a positive environment. What a great opportunity for young student-athletes to combine their academic education and hockey development. I highly recommend it!!"
"During my 26 years of coaching, I have come to learn that in the world of hockey you need to have great integrity and many different ways to communicate your message. You also need to be passionate and innovative. You need not look any further that the instruction at Serious Academy to fulfill those criteria, I wholeheartedly endorse this academy as a place you should consider for your athlete".
"Serious Academy of Hockey is a must for any hockey player looking to take their game to the next level. The quality of instruction and attention to detail is second to none.
The staff at SAOH is not only knowledgeable, but passionate about developing your athlete. I would put my trust in their exciting new camps."
"How has SAH helped your Surge Hockey Spring Program?
"Well to begin with we wanted to start something different than what was currently offered at the time and that is when we met Randy and Dave and began to layout our idea to them. Both groups believe in skill development vs just winning at all costs. We have been with them for 3 years and have seen great improvement in our kids skills and confidence. We also use them for dryland training, hockey IQ, and the nutrition side of things. SAH has provided a positive, fun learning environment for our kids to excel their hockey and life skills. We couldn't be happier with the direction our kids are going."
"Our family has been very impressed with the SAH program. The instructors and staff at SAH have had a great impact both on and off the ice for our daughters. The sessions have increased their confidence, their skating ability (speed and agility), puck handling, strength and knowledge about healthy food choices to power their bodies for competition. The encouragement and expertise provided by the instructors in all areas of hockey have surpassed all of our expectations. Our daughters look forward to their sessions with SAH whether it be at 7 am or 7 pm and never want their time on the ice to end! We look forward to working with SAH for many years to come. We feel that SAH offers a superior hockey program and that the instruction our daughters have received during hockey camps and training sessions have had a tremendous impact on their development as young hockey players."

"My kids attend various camps and extra skates with different instructors in the Saskatoon area. A SAH summer camp is the one camp that my kids ask to return to year after year. The highly qualified instructors make the combination of dryland workouts in the performance center, hockey IQ class-room sessions and on-ice instruction a fun and exciting week for my kids. Randy's nick-names rock! SAH camps provide instruction to support and develop both the mental and physical aspects of hockey. SAH instructors are extremely positive, creating an environment where players are developing their hockey skills along with the confidence that is required to transfer the skills from practice to game, yet they hold them accountable so that good practice habits are developed as well. My kids have also been regular participants in the SAH Breakfast Club during the winter season and we have heard from their teachers repeatedly that the days at school that follow the morning practice are their best of the week. We have found Serious Academy of Hockey to be an all-around great hockey/life experience!"
