Ottawa Senators 3-on-3 is back for our best season yet!

This program showcases fun and free-flowing hockey, without stoppages, face-offs, or coaches. Participants can expect 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, parents say this was THE MOST FUN season of hockey for their child.

The program will start at the beginning of April and run until the end of June, with each child playing 10 game days of 2 games each (20 games total) along with a fun bracket styled playoff to finish the season!

Calling all GOALIES! We have lowered the cost of goalie registrations to just $299! All registered full-time goalies will receive 100% of their teams playing time plus priority access to spare for other teams within their division and age group!

Can’t commit to the full season but still interested in making some saves? We have introduced a Spare Goalie option for you to sign up for! For just a $40 deposit, you will join our Spare Goalie list for your age group and we will only keep your deposit if you play 2 game days worth of ice time (approx. 2 hours). Anything less, and you will get all or half of your deposit back!

PLEASE NOTE: Registration links can be found at the bottom of this page. We strongly recommend registrants read about our league details and policy prior to enrollment!

ADDITIONAL NOTES

PLAYER DISCIPLINE

The purpose of Youth Leagues is to create a fun environment where our players can play amongst friends and meet new ones! We also believe that Youth Leagues a the perfect way for players to express their creativity and try new things while also keeping in touch with the game to prepare for the upcoming 2024-2025 season. In keeping with this mentality, we have a ZERO tolerance policy to on-ice/off-ice violence, aggression, offensive and discriminatory language and any form of abuse in general. This goes for players AND parents. Any such act that is deemed to be a violation of our League policy will be reviewed and met with the appropriate punishment (game ejection, game/multiple game suspension, league ban).

SCRIMMAGE FORMAT

  • All scrimmages to be played on half-ice using professionally installed temporary rink-boards placed along the centre-ice red line.
  • All scrimmages are played in 24-minute blocks which includes warm-up + 22 minutes of action (with two games occupying a one-hour block of ice time).
  • The buzzer will sound every 90 seconds to signal a line change, so that all players receive equal ice time.
  • Scores are kept but not posted to reinforce the fun atmosphere this program presents.

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 2023/24 season 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 honored by league administrators, as long as they are received prior to March 18th, 2024 . Requests may be completed during your registration. Any participants who request more than one friend, only the first name will be guaranteed, provided it is reciprocated. 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 2023-24 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 our 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 honored throughout the season.
