When you are a hockey player, the simple
smell of a rink takes you back. The gas fumes from the local Zamboni, the smell
of just slightly off gear, and of course the smell of fresh ice. It is what you
live and breath for, and for some, the dream keeps going to university. Lining
up beside other elite players, and taking on the best at the collegiate level
can be one of the best memories of your young life. Atleta can help you get
there, the only thing missing is you joining our platform.
Hockey is the lifeblood of this nation
For some reason, the normal path to the NHL has been through Junior Hockey. The CHL has dominated the landscape for some time, but for those who are not able to make the NHL, and that is 99% of hockey players, your career does not need to end within the WHL, OHL or QMJHL. With your junior career, you have in fact earned scholarship money to attend a U Sports University, and that is where your career can truly take off. U Sports offers an elite hockey experience, that is not found anywhere else in the country. You can earn a degree, and play with some of the best in the nation all at the same time. In Men’s hockey, the teams compete for the University Cup, which was first awarded in 1885, but has been awarded every year by U Sports since 1963. Woman’s hockey game a few decades later and the Golden Path Trophy has been awarded every year since 1998. No matter if you played Major Midget, Junior B, Junior A or Major Junior, the opportunity to compete at the collegiate level is here.
