Offer the absolute best hockey development experience and small group circuit style training with the top coaches in central Ohio.Meet Our Coaches
You are responsible for you, and we are going to treat you that way. You will not only be learning when you train with us, you will be teaching as well. You are a role model. That mini-mite coming in for the next session is looking up to you and wants to do what you do. That’s awesome! Respect that. Hold yourself to a high standard. Make those around you better. Profanity and vulgarity have no place in teaching, no place in role modeling, and no place in The Battery. You cannot train with us if you cannot present yourself as an example to those around you.
There is a better player in all of us. More importantly, there is a better person in all of us. A better teammate, a better student, a better teacher. That’s what The Battery intends to cultivate. Yes, we love hockey. It’s a great game. But it is also a tool by which you can learn more about yourself and grow as a person. When we use hockey to hone and foster that personal growth, we will have succeeded at our primary goal … to make every player exponentially better.
Passion, hard work, and discipline are the foundations of what we do. You have to love it. You have to get after it. And you have to commit yourself to it. Good is not great, and The Battery will remind you of that very fact each and every time you train with us.
We are pleased to announce our first-ever dedicated local partnership between the Battery Hockey Academy and Byers Auto Group. Byers Auto Group will be the premier sponsor for the Battery Hockey Academy travel teams and the Battery Draft Tournament for the 2022-2023 season.
"We wanted to partner our teams and tournaments with an iconic local business that wanted to be more than a sponsor and really embrace our partnership approach," said Cam Atkinson. "Our search ended as soon as we met with Byers Auto Group, a family-owned Columbus treasure and one of the finest companies in all of Ohio. I can speak for our entire ownership group when I say how happy we are to have their support. We will continue to do great things together for our players and their families."
Battery Hockey Academy was founded in 2018 by a group of hockey parents and former Columbus Blue Jacket, Cam Atkinson. The Battery was designed to offer exceptional development training to all hockey players in Ohio. To date, the Battery has trained over 5,500 individual youth athletes and our teams are currently ranked Top 10 in the country. This success has opened up many doors for our hardworking players and their families. From more prestigious tournaments to more training and better resources, our players routinely have their minds blown year after year with new developments.
This partnership will connect our hockey families to a local business that supports the growth of youth hockey in Ohio. These local partnerships are important to create a positive community relationship and help grow local business. Our travel teams will re-brand under the names Battery Byers Elite and Battery Byers Selects for the 2022-2023 hockey season. Byers will supply our travel teams with pro jerseys, socks, pant shells, team bags, warm-ups, and apparel for each athlete!
