This notification is to inform you that due to the events taking place in Ottawa and surrounding region today, ALL minor hockey activities (games and practices) within the ODMHA are to be cancelled for today.
Over the past eleven seasons over 7500 coaches have participated in the Tim Hortons Coaches Clinic at no cost, making it a great opportunity to further develop your skills as a coach and ultimately make a difference to your minor hockey team. The Ottawa Senators and Tim Hortons, along with the ODMHA, Hockey Outaouais and the ODWHA believe that we need to continue to educate our coaches, allowing them access to more information and resources to ensure a level of comfort delivering a variety of drills that focus on skill development while emphasizing fun.
The Tim Hortons Coaches Clinic offers a morning full of advice and instruction from some of the top hockey minds in the business.
Whether you are a first-time coach, a seasoned veteran, or somewhere in between, the Tim Hortons Coaches Clinic is the perfect opportunity to learn some fresh ideas that can be implemented into your practices immediately, enriching the minor hockey season for you and your players.
Help shape the future of minor hockey today!
