McGill Ice Hockey Research Group

http://icehockeyscience.mcgill.ca/index.html

I recently heard of their research group. Apparentl they're one of the very few groups, if any, that do research in hockey biomechanics

"The primary purpose of our ice hockey science research group is to evaluate the mechanical function of skates, sticks and protective equipment with respect to skill performance and safety.

A partnership with Nike/Bauer Hockey Incâ and the Natural Science and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) providing financial and equipment support has allowed the development of a strong graduate biomechanic program oriented toward movement analysis applied to hockey equipment research."

Wow Im in grade 11 and this seems like a DREAM program to get into. I suppose you would need all 3 sciences right? Because Im only taking Physics and Chem through this year and next...

Its a research group, not a program. You'll have to compete a Bachelor's Degree in a related field (life sciences or physical education/kinesiology, or maybe even biophysics) at any reputable university. After that, you'll have to apply to McGill's graduate program for an MSc or PhD and try and get one of these professors to supervise your research.

Yes, you should take all the courses you listed.

Wonder if that's still going on since Bauer is now separate and no longer has Nike's deep pockets.

It's a government program.
