Hockey Canada: Gold Medal Pathway

Beginning in 2022-2023, Hockey Canada will be unveiling a new philosophy of player development called ‘The Gold Medal Pathway’.

Hockey_Canada_logoIt is with great pleasure that we announce the Wolves U18 AAA program will be piloting Hockey Canada’s philosophy during the 2021-2022 season as a means for assessment and evaluation to better understand the player development process. As a result, the Wolves coaching staff and players will have access to a wide variety of technical, mental, and physical performance resources.

As the only U18 AAA program in Ontario and one of three in the country to pilot this experience, Wolves players will receive a first in class development experience to help them achieve their individual and team-related goals.

— Travis Crickard, Head Coach
