Locally, in partnership with HEO, Hockey Outaouais, and the Ottawa Senators Foundation, this new initiative will help introduce children from across Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec to the sport of hockey in a fun and positive setting with minimal time and financial commitments.

Players will receive 1 hour of ice time per week and learn the basics through cross-ice drills and games from an expert team of instructors from the Ottawa Senators Hockey Programs (the leading provider of skill development programs in the Ottawa-Gatineau region) and Hockey Eastern Ontario (the governing branch of Hockey Canada in Ottawa).

Please note that players enrolled in the Learn To Play Hockey Program are expected to meet a minimum skill and ability requirement. 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. If your child does not know how to skate, we highly recommend that you sign up for Sparty Learn 2 Skate before registering in this program.
