Hockey academy opens its doors in Enoch Cree Nation

A youth Indigenous hockey academy opened its doors this week in Enoch Cree Nation just west of Edmonton.

The organizers say it’s the first of its kind in the area.

Twenty-five youth aged eight to 18 were skating and performing drills with former NHL player Jason Strudwick.

For four days a week until mid-December the kids will on the ice, playing hockey virtually and in the gym learning new skills.
