The Sports Village / Berkeley Academy and Entertainment Centre Expansion

In its 19th year of operation, the award winning Sports Village has already established itself as a unique facility in Canada. While it is recognized as an excellent venue to play hockey, it is also earning widespread accolades for producing outstanding athletes for the next level of their development, whether in the professional ranks of the NHL or the junior level at the OHL or the over 200 scholarships to NCAA schools. As evidenced by the recent NHL draft (3 of the top ten drafts attended school at the Sports Village) we are top of mind for professional scouts, coaches and the athletic departments of universities.
