Peak Centre has been a leader in sport performance and athlete development for the past 20 years. Having started as part of the University of Ottawa, Peak has a unique appreciation of the role that science and academics play in athlete development.
The Peak Centre Academy sports program follows the principles of Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD), a Sports Canada sponsored initiative that is designed to help athletes reach their full potential by properly sequencing sport specific and conditioning activities throughout their development.
The Peak Centre Academy Athletic program combines daily sport specific activities that include on ice/court/indoor and outdoor field training, strength and conditioning , field based athleticism development and unstructured play time that encourages physical creativity. Based at the Bell SensPlex we have access to four ice pads and an indoor field house so there is no training time lost to bad weather.
All our programs are built on a sound scientific foundation, using the latest research on young athlete development and performance. Our sports curriculum is flexible to allow for individualization based on stage of development and the physical abilities that are optimally trained at each stage of development.
The staff at Peak Centre Academy is all degreed and certified in their respective disciplines. Our staff includes experts in physiology, strength and conditioning, sport psychology, skills analysis, and nutrition, allowing your child to access the sort of sport performance services that top NHL and national teams use to get the most out of their athletes. Our coaches are all certified through Hockey Canada and National Coaching Certification programs and experienced in coaching high performance development programs.
