U13 Program of Excellence
The Program of Excellence (POE) is Hockey Canada's elite development and competitive program that provides players with
exposure to international competition and the best high performance coaching in the country.
The U13 Program of Excellence is an introductory level program offered by Hockey Eastern Ontario to start and educate young players on the Hockey Canada POE Pathway. This is NOT your typical hockey camp. The program runs over a single weekend (Friday - Sunday) and provides players on ice development sessions with HEO High Performance coaches and certified Hockey Canada instructors. The program also offers off ice sessions with experts in areas such as nutrition, physical training, mental training and social media.
The program is only open to players that played Major Peewee AAA or AA in the season proceeding the camp.
