National Sport Academy Information Meeting

7:00 pm, Wednesday, April 25, 2018

Central Memorial High School

We look forward to meeting families and student athletes interested in living the lifestyle of a student athlete in the sports of baseball, flexsports, hockey and lacrosse. In the National Sport Academy, student athletes will learn to live the lifestyle of a successful student athlete in order to continue their goal of attending a college / university (NCAA or U Sports etc.) and playing varsity sports. Over the last 18 years, since the year 2000, many student athletes have achieved their goal of graduating from Central Memorial High School and the National Sport Academy and continuing on in NCAA and U Sports with an athletic scholarship to play college / university sports.

We hope to see you on April 25, 2018 at Central Memorial High School.

Winter Classic Outdoor Game Recap

Winter Classic Outdoor Game At Willow Ridge Outdoor Rink on Friday, March 9, 2018.

The wind blew, the ice was melting and slushy on the south side of the outdoor rink at Willow Ridge, but the game went on. Parents dressed for winter and huddled out of the wind. It was a real game with goals and penalties contested, questioned and debated. New fashions were displayed to look good and to stay warm. In a hard fought battle, the blue scored 10 to the reds 9. Great game everyone!
