Sports Discovery Camp (SDC) is pleased to announce our collaboration with the Ontario Ball Hockey Association (OBHA) which recently involved a training day for SDC staff in Innerkip, Ontario. Representatives from OBHA spent the day with our staff teaching aspects of ball hockey such as technique, skills and strategy. The entire staff of SDC had a great time, improved their skills and can now incorporate specific aspects of ball hockey training into our summer program.
The partnership also includes activity review and the possibility of SDC assisting to establish new ball hockey sites in Ontario.
