Active Alumni Program


This program is offered from March to August annually, and has been developed in order to maintain professional training relationships with athletes who have worked through the grass roots of their sport at the NSWC and who are now playing at a higher level than the Club offers, en-route to a pro-career or post-secondary education.

Players must have played minor hockey at the NSWC and be carded as Junior A (or above) in the most recent season.

-Program includes access to the ice at designated times as well as access to the following: High Performance Training Studios & Fitness Centre, Private Instruction, Shooting Lanes, Outdoor Pool, and programming at the applicable membership rates.
-Alumni are asked to give back and volunteer their time at Minor Hockey events in the summer, as on ice program instructors, or by participating in the annual Spring Golf Classic.
