West Kelowna’s 3 On 3 Hockey Training Centre
A Better Way To Train
462% More Touches On Our 2/3 Ice Surface = Faster Muscle Memory Development
The UHC is the only ice training facility of its kind between Vernon and Osoyoos.
Located in West Kelowna, BC, we’re not just another ice surface. Our 2/3 size rink is ideal because we’re smaller. We’re designed specifically for skills development.
The UHC was originally part of the National Training Rink franchise. The NTR was developed by ex-Washington Capital, Montreal Canadien and Vancouver Canuck Ryan Walter. The purpose was to offer an intimate, challenging and specialized training environment for players of all ages.
A smaller playing surface develops tighter skating skills and improves puck control. This is especially true for youngsters learning the foundational skills of the game. But for coaches, the UHC improves discipline and structure, prompting greater focus from players.
And for older players, nothing enhances skills better than playing on a smaller ice surface. Smaller ice surfaces are perfect for mastering control and improving all aspects of the game.
