Introduce your son or daughter to Canada’s favorite game, in a fun, supportive environment under the watchful eye of our best Ottawa Senators Hockey Programs instructors.

The Intro 2 Hockey program is designed to teach fundamental hockey skills to your son or daughter, in order to ensure they are ready for their first year of hockey. Each player will receive instruction that will increase their confidence on the ice and familiarize them with all aspects of the game. Our lesson plans are designed to be FUN for all participants and feature great instructor-to-participant ratios in order to ensure proper support for all players!

We believe that perfection and excellence comes through repetition and as such all subsequent sessions while following the same basic program outline and structure will focus on, with new drills and other small variations, the same basic course outline.

Please note that students enrolled in the Intro 2 Hockey program are expected to meet minimum skill and ability requirements. Participants MUST be able to stand and propel themselves around the ice as well as be able to fall and get back up to a standing position without assistance.
