COVID-19 Protocol & Guidelines

We are committed to providing the highest levels of safety for our community.  

To ensure player and staff safety, we have implemented mandatory 'Safe Return to Play Protocol & Guidelines' for all Club Activities.  In order to play with the Ottawa Sport & Social Club and stay in good standing, the following guidelines MUST be followed.  A zero-tolerance policy is in place for those who challenge these decisions.   

To ensure a successful season, please remember to practice safe physical distancing and a positive attitude!

All players are required to read, understand, and adhere to all COVID-19 Guidelines.

Start / End Dates

Monday:  Starts Monday, July 5 and ends on Monday, October 4.

Tuesday:  Starts Tuesday, July 6 and ends on Tuesday, October 5.

Wednesday:  Starts Wednesday, July 7 and ends on Wednesday, October 6.

Thursday: Starts Thursday, July 8 and ends on Thursday, October 7.

League start and end dates are subject to change. OSSC endeavors to provide registered players and individuals with as much notice as possible should changes occur.  

# of Weeks

16 games (14 regular season + 2 playoff games).

Teams will play 16 games over 14 weeks. Each team will play two off-night games, or double-headers throughout the season to make up for the delayed start of the season.

For sports where the COVID-19 sport cohort rules limit just 4 teams per league, we will be posting the 16-games as two x 8-game schedules.  This will allow leagues to be re-aligned for skill (where possible) after the first half of the season.

Estimated Game Times

Rotating start times between 6:30pm, 8pm and 9:30pm.

Game length is 90 minutes.

Note: Every effort is made to equalize the start time and game locations across the league. 

Sunset Time:  During late August & September-October, outdoor sports may have game times adjusted based on the earlier sunset.  This means, games during these months could start as early as 5:45pm. 

Bye Dates

No bye dates.

In the event games are rescheduled, weekend and off-night games may be played. Every effort is made to provide significant notice. View our foul weather and game cancellation policy here.
