Pittsburgh Hockey Academy and Frozen Pond Arena are proud to continue their partnership with International Dryland Academy.
It is very important to PHA and FPA that we partner with a group that has extensive experience in dryland training as well as extensive playing and coaching experience. We believe this experience will provide the optimum training for our youth hockey players.
IDA will provide in-season dryland training for the PHA Icemen teams.
IDA will also offer off season dryland training options for all players both inside and outside of PHA Icemen teams.
