Ottawa Pride Court Volleyball - Rideau Sports Centre

 

Welcome LGBTQI2S+ community members! 

 

Earlier this summer OSSC strengthened our commitment to diversity and developed a LGBTQI2S+ Inclusion policy to reflect our committed to providing a supportive and respectful environment for all players and staff regardless of any differences based on sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression.  A new gender category (Non-Binary) was also created in our platform for players when registering for any OSSC program. To learn more please click here.

 

This Fall, we are excited to introduce a Volleyball Drop-In & Tournament combo league primarily focused on creating a fun and inclusive environment for the LGBTQI2S+ community, including allies. Everyone welcomed!

 

Join us on Friday nights at the Rideau Sports Centre for 2 x 6 week Sessions. Enjoy a Drop-In format allowing you to socialize and meet a variety of new players each week.  Over the course of the 6 weeks there will be 2 mini tournaments round robin style. 

 

We welcome feedback and comments on how we can continue to improve inclusivity in sport.  Please contact us at info@ossc.ca or call our office at 613-565-TEAM (8326) x 151.
