Lakers All About Development
Lakers hockey provides a challenging, positive, and intensive environment for the region's top athletes. 

As most local centers begin their tryouts, the Lakers Minor Peewee team played their 14th game of the season last night. The Lakers Minor Peewees started their year with an intensive team camp in August, amassing 20 hours of ice in a strong kick-off to the year. Since that time the Lakers have had an additional 14 hours of practice ice bringing their on-ice tally to 55 hours between games and practice three weeks into September. This combined with professional off-ice summer fitness evaluation and dryland programs, goalie clinics, mental strength and nutrition seminars, power skating instruction and coaches that participate in on-going development provides an intensive positive program for the Lakers youth they develop. Lakers hockey is not for everyone, but for the Huron-Perth athlete that wants to apply themselves to a sport, the Lakers' program provides the utmost in sport development.

By the years end the average Lakers team will have amassed 90 hours of practice ice in 60 sessions, and an additional 90 hours of playing time in 60 matches. This combined with our off ice development programs and our organizational focus on developing high achieving, respectful, disciplined youth provides tremendous value to our athletes. In comparison, the average local center will provide 2-3 hours of ice per week or 50-75 hours of ice per year compared with the Lakers 180 hours.

All Lakers games are admission free and provide  terrific entertainment, please consult our master schedule for a list of our games and treat yourself to the best youth hockey you can find!
