YOUTH DEVELOPMENT PARTNERSHIP

HARBORCENTER’s Youth Development Partnership program (YDP) is open to youth hockey organizations in Western New York and Southern Ontario. This unique program provides select associations the opportunity to practice at HARBORCENTER with the Academy of Hockey coaches and utilize all of the world-class features of the facility. It also allows HARBORCENTER to build relationships and connect with teams in the surrounding communities who share similar goals and have the ambition to further develop and improve players’ and coaches’ knowledge of the game, technical skills and performance both on and off the ice.

The YDP welcomes teams of all ages, skill levels and gender. The Academy will design and tailor each session specifically for each team in the program and will use a variety of teaching methods. Academy Coaches can utilize the ice, classroom space, theater and high-performance training center for teaching purposes.

HARBORCENTER features:

  • Two NHL-size ice rinks
  • High-performance training center
  • Technology-equipped classroom
  • 40-seat theater
  • Rapid Shot
