This summer, Ottawa area children will have a tremendous opportunity to learn from one of the NHL’s greatest skaters. Former Ottawa Senators forward Shean Donovan will host a hockey camp for children ages 6 to 12, sharing the knowledge that helped him excel in the league for 15 seasons. The camp will focus on on-ice and off-ice training for Peewee and Bantam players, with two sessions in July at the Beckwith Recreation Complex in Carlton Place, Ontario. The first session runs from July 18th to the 22nd and the second session is July 25th to the 29th.
When Donovan retired from the NHL last fall, he began assisting his friend and skating Coach Shawn Allard at Perfect Skating, helping to teach hockey players in the nation’s capital the benefits of proper skating techniques. He quickly discovered that he loved the challenge of teaching and sharing what he had learned as a professional hockey player.
