Announcing Ellenton Ice’s NEW Sports Academy

Ellenton Sports Academy
We are very excited to announce the opening of Ellenton Sports Academy this September. 
Ellenton Sports Academy is an independent, fully accredited, private school for male and female athletes in grades 6 to 12. It is open to all athletes but the primary focus is the education and development of amateur hockey players and figure skaters.
We have partnered with US Performance Academy, USPA, to educate our Athletes. US Performance Academy is the accredited, private, online school designed for high performance athletes. USPA allows for flexible schedules to accommodate athletes’ demanding tournament, competition and training schedules without sacrificing quality.

For more information on USPA please visit their website:


Ellenton Sports Academy is being led by Adam Bennett.

Adam is a former NHL player, drafted 1st Round by the Chicago Blackhawks in 1989.
He has over 2 decades of experience sports marketing, business management and player development.
We are thrilled Adam is guiding our program and our youth to future achievement and success!
Come to  Ellenton Ice
