The dates are set for the 13th annual OHF/OHL U15 Program of Excellence Camps. Held in April and May of this year across Ontario, the camps will focus on a variety of on and off-ice sessions, helping to ensure players are provided with the most up-to-date development strategies.
The goal of the program is to introduce players, families and staff to high performance hockey, Hockey Canada’s Program of Excellence and the Ontario Hockey League by creating a unique hockey experience for all players and staff involved that develops participants both on and off the ice.
“This is truly a unique and special hockey experience that we at the OHF are proud to assist in delivering in partnership with the OHL,” said Tony Foresi, chair of the board for the OHF. “We are excited to continue with the strides made in more than a decade in the development of hockey players at this camp.”
