Ottawa Senators 3-on-3 is back and better than ever!

This program showcases fun and free-flowing hockey, without stoppages, face-offs, or coaches. Participants can expect a 20 fast-paced scrimmages, music during all games, and a Senators youth league jersey. 

The goal of the program is to encourage creativity and give each player time to develop new skills, in an atmosphere that prioritizes fun. Each year countless parents comment that this was THE most fun hockey of the season for their child.

In light of the provincial shutdown, this program’s first day will be as early as June 5, 2021, and the program will be shortened to five weeks.

DRESSING ROOM POLICY

HOCKEY EASTERN ONTARIO (HEO) INSURANCE/ SANCTIONING

This 3-on-3 program is sanctioned under Hockey Canada through HEO (Hockey Eastern Ontario). All participants who played in a registered minor hockey association during the 2020/21 are fully covered under this sanctioning. Any participant who did not play in a registered minor hockey association is required to purchase the HEO Sanctioning fee at the time of registration.

Girls who are currently registered players within the OWHA are already insured by Hockey Canada and therefore are not required to pay the additional HEO sanctioning fee. Only in the case where the participant has not been registered with either of the OWHA or the HEO would you be required to pay the fee.

FRIEND REQUESTS

In order to ensure balanced teams, please be advised that only ONE (1) friend request will be accepted per participant. All one-to-one friend requests will be honoured by league administrators, as long as they are received prior to March 15, 2021. Requests may be completed during your registration. Any participants who request more than one friend will automatically void their submission. This policy will help the 3-on-3 league strive for fair and well-balanced teams; while allowing participants to meet new teammates!

Please note that circular friend requests will not be honoured. A one-to-one friend request is valid when Player A requests to play with Player B and Player B requests to play with Player A. A circular request (that will not be honoured) is when Player A requests to play with Player B, Player B requests to play with Player C, and Player C requests to play with Player A. All three of the requests in the circular example will be automatically voided.

BALANCING

Program administrators will use information provided during registration (level played during the 2020-21 season) to create teams of equal skill level at the start of the season. During the first four weeks of the program, each team will be evaluated by coordinators and staff. Balancing moves will be made in order to ensure all teams are as equal as possible.

These balancing moves will be made in such a way that friend requests are continuously honoured throughout the season. If you have any questions about the balancing process, please don’t hesitate to contact league staff at 613-599-0222.
