A high-profile Toronto area hockey academy is working alongside the Near North School Board about creating North Bay's first-ever hockey academy.  

The two organizations have been working on the concept for close to a year and just recently an online survey has been released to gauge the interest within the North Bay community. 

"Everest Academy High-Performance Program North Bay is collaborating with the Near North District School Board to provide a balanced academic-credit, high-performance hockey training program for elementary and secondary students in North Bay," the survey states. 

"Modeled after the renowned Everest Academy private school for student-athletes located in Toronto, the program runs 4 days a week with 65 minutes on-ice and 65 minutes off-ice training per day."

Hockey Academies have been growing across North America with a number of hockey academies or hockey prep schools based within the Toronto area.  

Over the past few years, a number of young local hockey players have left the area to train this way in Toronto.  

A local consulting firm, Karen Jones Consulting Inc., is conducting this survey on behalf of Everest Academy High-Performance Program North Bay.

For questions about the survey, please contact Natasha Penn, Director of Client Services at info@everestacademynorthbay.com or 705.478.9713.
