Having qualified instructors is one of the 3 key pillars to the Maplesoft Hawks philosophy on development. It is an absolute priority to work with qualified individuals that not only have ample experience but who also have the ability to pass that information along in a fun and effective manner. We strongly believe that our group of instructors is the most qualified group in Ottawa. Many of them have achieved the goal that so many kids strive for which is to play in the National Hockey League. They have been there and they know what it takes to be the absolute best and they are willing to pass their knowledge on the motivated kids.
