The Prime Hockey Program was formed to give today’s top youth hockey players an opportunity to compete against, develop and play with the top athletes from around the world. Our Spring hockey teams are invite-only and run from 11 to 15-years-old, featuring rosters comprised of the very best AAA youth hockey players from all over North America. 
Prime Hockey's leadership has over 23 years of experience working with the top youth hockey players in the world.  Dating back to 2007, our staff has worked with over 500 players drafted into the National Hockey League. More than 125 of those individuals are current or former NHL players with hundreds more who played in the Canadian Hockey League (OHL, WHL & QMJHL) World Junior Championships, U.S. National Team Development program and/or Division-I college hockey.
Our Mantra
Develop Leaders. Create Opportunities. Enrich Lives.
Our Mission
We are dedicated to inspire hockey players to pursue their dreams to the fullest. It is our mission to bring out the very best in every individual by providing unparalleled experiences that combine world-class competition and exposure to next-level opportunities while maintaining a singularly professional environment.

      How does my son get invited to a Prime / Invite-only event?

      Participants for our Prime teams (tours & tournaments) and other individual entry events are selected by our coaches and staff. In most cases, players are scouted in person and invited to participate in our programs.  We also use feedback from our Spring coaches to determine player invitations for the following Spring/Summer.  If you would like your child to be considered, please fill out the Inquiry form.

      Who are the Prime coaches?

      Our teams are coached by hockey professionals from a variety of hockey backgrounds who are independent (non-parent) and serve as positive role models for kids. We take our coaching staff selections seriously to maximize the experience for both our players and families.
