Evening Adult Skill Development

Adult Skill Development Programs

Get off the couch and become a better "beer league" player with an Evening Adult Skill Development program!

The professional instructors of the Ottawa Senators Hockey Programs will help adult hockey players with beginner to intermediate abilities develop their skills and get a fun workout at the same time. 

In these 8-week evening sessions, adults will have a chance to get on the ice and improve skating, shooting, passing, and puck control with the emphasis placed on becoming a well-rounded player. All sessions will feature a controlled scrimmage at the end of each class to illustrate key points in game situations (while stopping play where necessary). Come experience game-changing skill development and great exercise through world-class teaching!
