  • A mental performance training program under the direction of Dr. Cassidy Preston, Ph.D.
  • Physical training and monitoring guided by Jennifer Wakefield, a former Team Canada player with World and Olympic gold medals
  • Technical and tactical curricula shaped to the needs of each team

  • A monitored affiliation program in which HPP athletes visit with younger or lower level teams. As well, these HPP athletes are provided regular opportunities to practice or play with our higher level teams. Eg. U15s at U18 practices/games
  • Guest coach initiatives both from within the WGHA and visiting coaches (eg. USports)
