The Inaugural
Senators Elite Hockey Development
High Performance Training & Mentorship Camp
July 6-10 & 12-14, 2024
Bell Sensplex – Ottawa, Canada
& Greater Boston, USA

All players looking to attend the SEHD High Performance Mentorship Camp must attend the June 21-23 Selection Camp. Please scroll to the bottom for more info on the selection camp!

“I always recommend that players experience some time away from the rink to rest their skating muscles and allow them to miss the game for at least a few weeks every summer. If they chose just one thing to develop all off-season, this is the camp to attend. I wholeheartedly believe players heading into their U14 seasons will get more value in the SEHD High Performance Mentorship Camp than anything else we or others have ever offered before.”

Andy Bryan, Senior Director of Hockey Programs

Experience a true training camp feel while developing high performance habits and competing for the Inaugural Senators Elite Hockey Development Mentorship Cup. In this elite camp, players will be assigned to two separate teams and be placed into an elite environment, giving them a firsthand look into a junior-like training camp setting. Players will have their daily activities planned for them, including on-ice development, off-ice workouts, classroom sessions, guest speakers, and finishing every day with a professionally officiated game, with both teams looking to hoist the SEHD Mentorship Cup! All activities will be led by professionals in their respective fields. This exceptional week will feature 17.5 hours of ice time scheduled around highly beneficial full days of activity. All aspects are designed to set 2011-born elite-level players up for maximum success as they make the often difficult transition into the U14 (13U, USA) level, for the remainder of their AAA hockey careers and into junior, college and professional ranks. 

In addition to participating in the 2024 Senators Elite Hockey Development High Performance Mentorship Camp, each of the two teams will attend the Mini Chowder Cup in the Greater Boston Area immediately following the camp, from July 12-14, 2024.
