OUR 3 CORE BELIEFS
1. WE BELIEVE IN LEADERSHIP
WE BELIEVE THAT TRUE LEADERSHIP IN FOUND IN EDUCATING AND EMPOWERING OTHERS. WE BELIEVE IN DOING WHAT IS RIGHT RATHER THAN WHAT IS POPULAR. WE BELIEVE THAT SPORTS SHOULD BE ABOUT THE ATHLETES, COACHES, AND OFFICIALS RATHER THAN PARENTS AND POLITICS. WE BELIEVE IN STANDING UP FOR THOSE THAT DO NOT HAVE A VOICE. WE BELIEVE IN LIVING ABOVE THE LINE.
2. WE BELIEVE IN TEAMWORK
WE BELIEVE THAT SUCCES IN SPORTS AND SUCCESS IN LIFE IS ONLY POSSIBLE IN A TEAM-FIRST ENVIRONMENT. OUR COACHES, ATHLETES, AND FAMILIES APPROACH EACH DAY TRYING TO ANSWER 3 QUESTIONS;
1. HOW CAN I MAKE THE PROGRAM BETTER;
2. HOW CAN I MAKE MY TEAMMATES BETTER;
3. HOW CAN I MAKE MYSELF BETTER.
3. WE BELIEVE IN FAMILIES
WE BELIEVE THAT OUR FAMILY TIME AND HEALTH ARE THE MOST VALUABLE ASSETS WE WILL EVER OWN. WE STRUCTURE OUR PROGRAM TO MAXIMIZE TIME TOGETHER, WITH SET SCHEDULES, SET DAYS, SET TIMES, SET LOCATIONS, WITHOUT ANY MANDATORY VOLUNTEERING.
The AMP Hockey Academy is founded by former NCAA, Pro, and National Team hockey player Brad Layzell.
The vision is to create one of the strongest and safest youth hockey and multisport development programs in the world for boys, girls and sledge hockey players.
The program promotes evidence-based solutions for brain safety and injury prevention through education, training, medical assessments and support with leading medical and preventative health providers.
The athletic development platform is based on having highly experienced coaches teaching a variety of different sports and proper athletic movements to develop a much greater skill set for hockey, and for life.
We have developed our own curriculum-based approach to long-term athletic development incorporating smaller playing surfaces, smaller rosters, to significantly accelerate learning, safety, and engagement in the sport.
For children in their youngest and most critical development stages, we are able to build an athletic foundation and a love for sport that will last them a lifetime.
