With the Swiss League farm team EVZ Academy, EVZ has another platform for training young ice hockey players. The new EVZ Academy team should not be confused with the educational concept The Hockey Academy, which was launched in 2014.
EVZ Performance Teams
The new Swiss League farm team EVZ Academy complements the junior performance teams U20-Elit and U17-Elit and is intended to close the gap between the U20-Elite and EVZ´s first team in the National League. The aim is to give young players the opportunity to gain experience and to play and practice at a high level, thus enabling them to advance to the highest league in Switzerland. The goal of the Swiss League team, EVZ Academy will exclusively use young players aged 23 and younger, preferably from the EVZ development Program. The main focus of the EVZ Academy is the education of our young players.
