Our Mission

Vanguard Hockey International’s sole purpose is player development. With experience working with beginners to NHL players and Olympians there is a clear understanding of what it takes to develop a player on and off the ice. We bring the knowledge of some of the best skills coaches of the past with the expertise and insights of today’s pioneer coaches and minds. Player development transcends on-ice skills. It includes training your mindset and attitude as much as your physical and on-ice abilities. Today’s young players are tomorrow’s citizens, and we pride ourselves in committing to helping these young players become the best they can be on and off the ice. We understand not every player wants to make it to the NHL, some aspire to make a Prep or University team, maybe you have no long term aspirations but want to be the best you can while you play the game for your local travel or recreational team. We are here to help players of all mindsets achieve whatever it is they aspire to.
