Entering it’s fourth season, SSHD AAA Hockey Club has established itself as the finest spring hockey development program in the Ottawa-Gatineau region. The club hosts Elite and AAA teams for male and female athletes from U7 to U18 which will include some of the very best players from across Eastern Ontario. Hear from some of our past players here!

I wanted to take the time to thank you and your team. Jacob really enjoyed himself with the boys, many of which new to him, but he felt so welcomed.  The team dynamics, level of play from opposing teams and within the team really helped him reach his peak at the right time, not to mention winning last week’s tournament! I also think the adjustments that had to be made to the program to adapt to COVID restrictions were well done. I especially enjoyed having access to Fitquest for all those weeks when nothing else was available. He got back on the ice in better shape than before! – Bruce C., 2021

And a huge thank you for another wonderful season! We love this program so much, and it was especially incredible this year to get back on the ice and have some away tournaments after such a tough year with COVID. We look forward to this program each year and I know how much work this is with so many teams, changes in restrictions and organizing everything! We really appreciate everything you do and hope to be back with the same team next year-a really special group of kids and coaches! – Bonita G., 2021

Max really did enjoy the SSHD program as a whole, and it was the highlight of his spring/summer. It was impressive how quickly the team bonded and came together as a strong and cohesive team. They just seemed to have fun together. It was a very professionally run program despite the obstacles of Covid.  I/we really appreciated the focus not only on hockey and skill development but also on team work, respect, character, commitment and hard work. These are skills and traits that are so important off the ice as well. – Trevor R., 2021

We just wanted to extend a big thanks to everyone involved with the SSHD 2007 program. As in the past your program provided a great benefit to Blake in preparing for his AAA tryouts. Your programs have been fundament in his development, not just on the ice but also providing an environment where he feels confident about himself and his game. He was extremely disappointed he could not finish the summer season with the team because of his neck injury but we are very grateful for everyone’s time and commitment. Thanks again for another great season and hopefully we see everyone at the rink this fall/winter. – Brendan E., 2021

We just wanted to take a minute to thank you for yet another fantastic season with the SSHD program! Connor’s development has been significant over the past few months. Gunner was such a positive influence on and off the bench throughout the season. Connor was fortunate to have been given the opportunity to play for Jared / Team Black, and this was a huge confidence booster for him going into the AA tryouts. The timing was perfect, and although Connor was one of the last AA cuts on D, he was happy with how he skated. There is no doubt the SSHD team and program has contributed to his overall development. – Dave F., 2021

Just wanted to send a quick note to thank you for all of your efforts and to compliment you on the SSHD program. It was truly the best spring program that we’ve been involved with. From Andy organizing and Dana coaching. I know we’ll will be back. Job well done and appreciated. – Darren C., 2021

It’s worth repeating that a big thank you is in order for all the SSHD administration and coaching/development staff.  The way you handled yourselves during this (hopefully) once in a lifetime pandemic situation was an art form. You always kept the kids safety at the forefront, yet fought hard to retain the full benefit of development opportunities and the semblance of a spring season through creation of the 4on4 league play. – Adam K., 2020

As always, the coaching was top notch and Will learned a lot about being a team player on the ice skill wise but also as a person. We really appreciate the SSHD philosophy. I asked him about what he learned, and he said skills, but it was more self-confidence this year. That is down to all the great folks on the ice and we thank you. I suspect no one will ever really know what it all took to run the program this year, but I wanted to say thank you so much to you and the entire Sensplex team. William really benefited on every level because of it. – Cherill B., 2020
