My son is 10 (11 in early January) and is in Grade 6 (a year ahead academically to his peer group and hence all the kids he plays against). The school he attends offers a Hockey Canada Skills Academy. He is on the ice 3 times a week for 1.5 hours and in the gym (core and endurance - not lifting) 2 times a week. This schedule rotates every week, ie. the following week 3 times at the gym, and 2 ice sessions. This is in addition to his 2 x 1 hour practices and 1 to 2 games per weekend.
He says he enjoys it now, i'm also curious how much fun it will be when April/May rolls around.
Of course this is in addition to Spring Hockey and summer camps. I keep telling him to slow down but he says he can't get enough and doesn't refuse ice??? Crazy kid!!!
