Everest Academy is a ministry of Everest Family Church in Hayden. We offer freedom along with quality resources, information, activities and support to those homeschooling in Alabama. We believe that the parent has the best interests of their children at heart. We believe that the parent is the first and only teacher that a child needs. In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off church "cover" school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

Getting Started

How can I get my child started in hockey?

The HHDC (Huntsville Hockey Development Center) is here to help your son or daughter get involved in the sport of hockey. For many, hockey seems too complicated to even start getting involved. We are here to help and show you the path for your son or daughter!

First things first! Skating! All players need to have fundamental skating skills in order to begin playing the sport of hockey. The HHDC offers a variety of programs to get your child started and keep them going and having fun through their development years. The following listing of programs shows the general hierarchical stages of development for your child. 

1. Learn to Play Hockey - This is the first step for your child. Here, quality HHDC certified staff members work with players in a small coach to player atmosphere teaching the basics of skating, puck handling, passing, and shooting. This program ranges in age from 3 to 12. The program offers skating school instructors for the absolute, just learning to skate beginners. Please CLICK HERE for more detailed information on this program.

2. House League - The House League is the place for all players after they have developed their fundamental skating and puck handling skills in the Learn to Play Hockey program. This program is mostly recreational where players are drafted onto teams and play against other teams within the program.

3. Development Programs - These programs are designed to offer players development in all areas of the game ranging from power skating, goaltending, shooting, checking, to fun and games. Players of all levels are encouraged to attend including but not limited to those in the house league, on select teams, or travel teams. There is no point when a player is ever "done" with development programs as these will always afford your child with the fundamental skills they need in each stage of their development. Please CLICK HERE for more detailed information on all of our development programs.

4. House Select - This program is a branch of the House League that offers a higher level of play including minimal levels of travel to the player interested in a little higher level of competition.
5. Travel Hockey - These programs are separate from the House League and offer the competitive hockey player an opportunity to play with and against the best competition from the area and often the country. These programs usually have tryouts for player selection, have a heavy travel schedule, and are more expensive.
