Compete Hockey Academy
Compete Hockey Academy teams play out of the brand new, state of the art, Frontier Arena in Post Falls Idaho, where teams have their own permanent dressing room and workout facility. Compete Hockey Academy also offers a true education based hockey program that has its players attend Genisis Preparatory Academy a private Christian School in Post Falls Idaho.
Compete Hockey is directed by former NHL player Cam Severson. Cam played for the Anaheim Ducks under Mike Babcock as well as the Columbus Blue Jackets. He finished his career playing in various European Elite Leagues in Germany and Austria. Cam coached a Bantam AAA team two seasons ago that finished with a 51 - 19 - 3 record from which four players were selected in the 2011 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft. Last season Cam coached a U16 Midget Tier 1 team that competed at a combination of Midget U17 Tier 1 tournaments in Canada as well as Midget U16 Tier 1 tournaments in the United States.
“Cam is proven teacher of the game, he knows what it takes to play at the highest level; he pushes players to reach their full potential with a solid hockey development program.”

Practice and Dry Land Training
Our regular season program will consist of three or four 1.5 hour weekday practices. Our in-season practice master plan will follow proven techniques at the major junior levels. Individual skill development will continue within the necessary team systems progression.
In addition to the three on-ice practices there will be three one hour weekly dry-land sessions at the brand new Compete Hockey training facility in Post Falls.

All of our out of town players will be billeted*with local families from the team and community. They will be screened thoroughly to ensure that each family’s values meet the values set by our team, we feel that this provides a great experience for players to learn how to adapt to new surroundings as well as have a “home away from home” to make our players feel as comfortable as possible. We ensure that our players will be placed in a positive and supportive environment. All players will be given a strict “Code of Conduct” to abide by. If your player has goals to play “Junior Hockey”, billeting is something every junior player will experience. Our billet coordinator Trina Tinder will oversee all player housing issues.
*Billeting is a private and legal guardianship arrangement between player and host family and is not a contract with Compete Hockey.
