Six local players took part in the OHF / OHL Under-16 Program of Excellence in Windsor this past weekend. Tyler Drury, Matt Gough, Cole Harris, Tim Kaldeway, Sam McCormack and Mike Zottl applied to take part in the weekend and were selected by the OHF. Players were split into 4 teams and each team practiced, ate and stayed together at the residence at St. Clair College.

The OHF/OHL Under-16 Program of Excellence is a development experience designed to educate and inform players and parents. The goals of the program include: to introduce players, families and staff to high performance hockey, the Program of Excellence and the Ontario Hockey League; to create a unique and special life and hockey experience for all players and staff involved; and to develop players and staff both on and off the ice.

For the 2012 program, players who were born in 1997 are eligible.
Players will participate in intense, high performance on and off ice sessions and seminars. On-ice sessions include two practices and three games. Off-ice sessions include seminars with keynote speakers on topics such as sports psychology, nutrition, and fitness.
