Andrews Sports Institute Remote Program is a new program that is an extension of the Andrews world-renowned Personal Growth and Hockey Development programs. The Remote (ASI) started last year with a pilot group of 53 students. The pilot group saw tremendous development in their off ice hockey skills, public speaking, literature skills and developed entrepreneurial skills that will stick with them throughout their life.

The ASI  #2 Program is designed to challenge students to thrive in both athletics and academics through its continued focus on the 4 key modules – Hockey Skill Development, Reading, Entrepreneurship, and Leadership! This comprehensive development program allows for student-athletes to develop in their sport while learning the qualities to be a good leader with strong character.

Andrews Sports Institute Remote Program had participation from students all over the world in countries as far as Thailand, Saudi Arabia, England, the United States, and Canada, to name a few. Students who completed last years Remote ASI #1 are encouraged to sign up for ASI #2 which will feature all new themes, books, projects, and hockey skills.

All Areas of the Program will have a major AT HOME Component to them to help players develop efficient working habits.  This will force them to be more disciplined with their time in order to devote time to accomplish their goals.
