Program Approach & Structure Hockey Programs

Focused on advanced individual skills & tactics which complement each student’s development:

Off-ice training

In-tune with each athletes’ existing physical load, such that academy ice sessions will be designed to not over-tax their body and negatively impact performance in their team setting. The athletic portion of the academy should be similar in nature to a regular phys-ed curriculum which features high and low activity rates depending on the topics being covered. Unique to OSA however is that our coaches on and off the ice will maintain a focus on purposeful preparation for competition.

Program season-long curriculum designed and delivered by an elite-team of hockey development experts; unmatched in the industry. Together, these individuals will form the OSA Hockey Development Committee (OHDC) which is established for the sole purpose of helping to shape the season-long curriculum which each member will be involved in delivering. Our coaching staff is listed below.

Wonderful four rink facility close just down the street from Canadian Tire Centre, home of the Ottawa Senators.
