The Kimberley Academy is a Hockey Canada Sport School program that allows dedicated female hockey players to play and practice at an elite level while pursing a challenging academic program that will prepare student-athletes to advance to NCAA or USport programs. Founded in 2016 to provide a local option for players in the East Kootenays, The Kimberley Academy welcomes players from all over North America and Europe who are serious about improving their game.


The mission of our program is to develop our student-athletes into leaders on the ice, in the classroom, and in their communities.


As an independent program, we play games against top US and Canadian programs and attend several showcases each season in order to maximize  exposure to college hockey programs. Our coaching staff works with each player to identify the options for continuing their hockey career at the post-secondary level and works to ensure that a good fit exists between player and potential program - whether at the NCAA DI, DIII or USport level.
