A new, exciting partnership

A few short years ago, Mike Ellis was running a few hockey camps for kids in St. Thomas. At the time of this writing, he was on his way to the NHL Entry draft with the Toronto Maple Leafs, and he’s still celebrating a Calder Cup championship.

And as if he wasn’t busy enough already, Ellis Hockey Detail has just signed into a partnership with Victus Academy in Kitchener to handle all on-ice development for the elite private hockey school.

The Academy is an independent private school designed for both male and female elite hockey players in grades 7 through 12. Victus Academy provides the best of two disciplines – university-level schooling, combined with elite competitive hockey skills training, while still allowing students to play on their rep hockey teams.

Both hockey and academics are pursued with the same vigour, excellence and competitiveness at Victus Academy, and the school ensures that the curriculum is designed to accommodate the hockey program and the other strenuous demands placed on the elite athlete.

Victus Academy is not for everyone. Successful applicants are those individuals who not only possess high-level hockey skills and academic ability, but who are also ready for the rigors and demands of the highly-competitive school.

The foundation and main core value of Victus Academy is its commitment to develop students with the highest character through preparation, discipline, and a commitment to excellence, which will propel them as they move towards adulthood, allowing them to withstand challenges that come their way – in university, in hockey, and in their personal lives – and to achieve their full potential.

Although Victus Academy is a new institution, its foundation and strength originates from its team who have devoted their lives to excellence in education and hockey. They bring their passion and experience to Victus Academy, and Victus Academy will move forward and continue this legacy.

Victus Academy is located at Sportsworld Arena in Kitchener, Ontario: a city with a rich tradition of hockey that is situated in the heart of Southern Ontario, one of the best hockey regions in the world.
