Our instructors are quality people and life-long students of the game, committed to passing on their knowledge to each camp participant. Led by Head of Hockey Development Ryan Smyth, our team of instructors and counsellors are second-to-none.

We select our staff based on their experience, personality and attitude, with the expectation that they will teach life skills alongside hockey skills. They are extensively trained prior to each summer camp season through a full-day session with renowned camp expert Marc Cooper and our own camp-specific training. Each counsellor is taught the skills needed for effective and safe supervision of young campers, as well as the key teaching concepts for each hockey skill. This training is well beyond industry standard and is part of why we believe the Ottawa Senators Summer Hockey Camps are the best hockey camps anywhere.

Our instructors strive to make all players better by teaching proper technique in a fun and safe environment, using a system of demonstration, error-detection and correction.
