Upgraded Hockey Program at Loyola
Loyola High School is excited to announce some changes to its already impressive hockey program, including the addition of a new hockey program coordinator and added training and skills development for players at all levels.
Offered to students from Secondary 1 to Secondary 5, Loyola already boasts seven (7) teams that compete in the RSEQ. Loyola student-athletes take part in several local, regional and international competitions throughout their hockey career at Loyola.
The upgraded program includes dedicated weekly times for on-ice skills sets training at both the Ed Meagher Hockey Arena, attached to Concordia University, and Hockey Etcetera. Other additions include goalie development, video analysis sessions and off-ice strength and conditions for players throughout the season.
To oversee these changes, Loyola has hired Carl Benoit as our Hockey Program Coordinator (see bio below). Carl joins an already diverse and robust set of coaches, teachers and moderators in Loyola’s athletics department.
