Ottawa Senators Summer 3-on-3 & 4-on-4 is back for another summer!

This program showcases fun and free-flowing hockey, without stoppages, face-offs, or coaches. Participants can expect 22 fast-paced scrimmages including playoffs, music during all games, and a Senators youth program 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 countless parents comment that this was THE most fun hockey of the season for their child.

The league will start the week of July 2nd and run through August with each child playing 11 game days of 2 games each (22 games total) and also participating in a fun bracket styled playoff to finish the season!

CALLING ALL GOALIES! Goalie registrations are just $299 for the season! 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.

PLEASE NOTE: While registration links can be found at the bottom of this page, we still strongly recommend reading through all league details and policies prior to enrollment!

Divisions may be combined prior to the start of the season if league officials feel it is beneficial for the league. At that time, notification will be made to all players registered informing them of the change.

At the 2015-16 level, the advanced division is for those participants who in 2023-24 played tier 1 or 2 hockey (Competitive, or House A). The recreational division is for those participants who in 2023-24 played tier 3 or 4 of hockey (House B, House C)

At all other levels the recreational division is for those participants who played any level of House League in the 2023/24 minor hockey season. The Competitive division is only for participants who play at the Competitive levels during the 2023/24 season. Players who register for competitive and do not play competitive hockey, may be removed from the program. Open divisions are for all skill levels and players will be placed on teams to ensure skill level balance throughout the division.

If you are unsure about the appropriate division for your hockey player please call (613) 599-0222 or email [email protected] prior to completing your registration. Participants enrolled in the incorrect division may be moved without prior notice. Also, please note that the divisions referenced above will be separated into exclusive divisions by ability where enrollment warrants. Combined/Open divisions (Rec / Advanced) will be run where enrollment does not warrant a split. In each case, teams will be balanced to ensure the best possible experience for all.

ADDITIONAL NOTES

SCRIMMAGE FORMAT

  • All scrimmages are played in 24-minute blocks which includes warm-up + 22 minutes of action (with two scrimmages 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. At those divisions, players will be expected to display maximum effort and change considerately for their teammates. Players who demonstrate selfish play or take consistently “long shifts” may be removed from the program at any time.
  • Scores are kept but will not be posted.
  • At all competitive and elite divisions, players will be expected to play hard and display unselfish behaviour with respect to team play. Passing will be encouraged throughout.

HOCKEY EASTERN ONTARIO (HEO) INSURANCE/SANCTIONING

The 3-on3/4-on-4 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 honoured by administrators. Requests may be completed during your registration. Any participants who request more than one friend will automatically void their submission. This policy will help the program 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.

Friend requests will be honored up until Monday, June 17at 5 p.m. After that point, roster construction will be underway and we will attempt to honour friend requests from that point.

BALANCING

Administrators will use information provided during registration (league, level, team played during the 2023/24 season) to create groups of equal skill level at the start of the season. During the first three weeks of the season, each group will be evaluated by coordinators and 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 honoured throughout the season. If you have any questions about the balancing process, please don’t hesitate to contact league staff.

Please call 613 599 0222, or email [email protected] for more information regarding the program.
