Ottawa Senators Youth Leagues
The Ottawa Senators Spring and Summer hockey leagues presented by Villanova Dental Studio feature hockey in its purest and most fun form: free-wheeling and fast-paced, with pumping music and no stoppages to create an unmatched atmosphere of fun and excitement for players and their parents watching from behind the glass! All this, while providing an opportunity for skill development and creativity!
Only leagues of their kind sanctioned by Hockey Canada (Hockey Eastern Ontario)
In addition to the popular full-ice 4-on-4 league, we offer an EXPANDED 3-on-3 opportunity in the Spring played on professionally divided half-ice!
Using hockey analytics, player development in cross-ice games has been proven to be far superior than traditional full-ice hockey!
Working in tighter spaces, players are doubling their touches on the puck, producing six times more shots on net and passing to teammates more often when compared to traditional full-ice games. As the pace of the game increases, goalies will see more shots per minute and shots from different angles as the shape of the ice changes, helping them develop their skills along with players. Transitioning from full-ice to half-ice hockey encourages more puck battles, more changes in direction and more scoring opportunities. For many, it's just plain MORE fun too!
Our league is open to players and goaltenders of all abilities.
Each team will be set up as evenly as possibly using the information provided by parents/guardians as to what level each participant played in the past season. Balancing moves are then made throughout the first four weeks, to ensure that teams are as closely matched as possible. There are no coaches permitted in the 4-on-4 and 3-on-3 leagues as we want the participants to think outside of the box and be as creative as possible with their decision-making, in a purely "for fun" environment. No body checking is allowed at any age level so that everyone, regardless of size, can focus on the enjoyment of the game.
NOTE: Participants must register for the appropriate division (i.e. competitive or recreational) based on what level of hockey they are playing (or played) during the 2017-2018 minor hockey season. Failure to do so may result in you losing your spot once registration audits and balancing occurs.
