The OHF/OHL Under-15 Program of Excellence is a development experience designed to educate and inform players and parents. The goals of the program include: to introduce players, families and staff to high performance hockey, the Program of Excellence and the Ontario Hockey League to create a unique and special life and hockey experience for all players and staff involved and to develop players and staff both on and off the ice. The program is open to all male players who were born in 1998 and are registered within the OHF priority will be given to players competing at the AAA Level. All teams will be coached by OHL and OHF Member Partner personnel.
“Now entering its seventh year, the OHF is again excited to partner with the OHL to provide an opportunity for participants to develop both on and off the ice at the Under-15 Program of Excellence. The program would not be possible without the continued dedication of coaches, trainers and volunteers who are instrumental to the success of the program each year,” said Bowman.
“Canada and Ontario’s success on the world hockey stage is largely due to the tremendous teamwork not only on the ice, but off the ice. We are extremely pleased to once again partner with the Ontario Hockey Federation for the seventh consecutive year to provide the Under-15 Program of Excellence in 2013,” stated Branch. “Given the outstanding success in the first six years of the Under-15 Program, we are most pleased to see the continued growth of the U15 Program for the benefit of OHF players, coaches, trainers and families in providing a first class development opportunity, both on and off the ice.”
