OHD Hockey Skills programs
OHD Hockey Skills programs are the perfect option for children who want to try the sport or are currently playing house league hockey. These classes provide three levels of ‘drills and skills’ instruction, HIGH FIVE® certified staff, and a ratio of one instructor per 10 participants on a full ice surface. Instructors emphasize personal achievement and participation.
OHD Shooter Pad registered group programs
The main goal of this five-week OHD shooter pad program is skill development for the house league player (ages 6-12). We begin by instilling good habits in isolated training, which creates a solid foundation for skilled puck handling and shooting.
OHD Goalie Pad registered programs
The Goalie Pad program offers a unique, personalized approach to goaltender training in three levels. Participants work one-on-one with a qualified instructor in a controlled, structured setting. They will get a great workout combined with an intense learning experience. On-ice instruction covers technique, angle adjustments, balance, butterfly and stand-up styles, and rebound control.
