Specialty Clinics

The Ottawa Senators Hockey Programs Specialty Clinics offer players the opportunity to hone one fundamental skill in a 60-90-minute session with our best instructors. Each clinic has a narrow focus that emphasizes an essential skill through small group work in stations and consistent error detection and correction.

All sessions will be led by the Ottawa Senators Hockey Programs staff. These clinics are designed to give players a leg up on their competition by teaching and refining individual skills such as passing, shooting, puck control and body positioning (checking) in a fun and safe environment.

We are currently offering the following clinics (see below for full details):

Class sizes will be limited so please register early to avoid disappointment.

Precision Passing

Gretzky, Lemieux, Crosby, McDavid and let's not forget our captain Erik Karlsson all have mastered the skill and are known as players who make others better around them. Nothing moves faster than the puck. Join us to work on the skill of passing. We will teach you what goes into making those crisp accurate passes. Will include backhand passes which often do not get practiced enough, give & go's, area or space passes, receiving passes, getting open to recveive a pass, bank passes, saucer passes (age appropriate) and much more.

Being able to skate backwards as well as forward is what can make a good skater great -- take our very own Erik Karlsson as an example. Being an efficient and powerful backwards skater includes proper use of edges and body mechanics together.

"I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for yesterday evening's clinic. Xavier loved the clinic and he can't wait to go again. He said he's learned more in that one session about his shots that he ever did. The session was excellent and you guys all did a great job with the kids. We are impressed and will be talking about it in Clarence-Rockland. Well worth the drive! Thanks."

- Sophie Seguin
