Girls n’ Women and Sport

The City of Ottawa’s Girls n’ Women and Sport team offers a wide variety of leagues and programs for women all across the city. Our goal is to encourage women to participate and stay active in sports by providing a supportive, encouraging environment. Our most popular current programs are “Parent and Daughter” and “Never too late” (never too late to try a new sport or to get back into a sport). We would like to build on those successes by creating a women’s “Never too Late for hockey” and a “Parent and Daughter” hockey program. The funds from Game Changers will be used to introduce an equipment lending program so that those who do not have access to equipment have the opportunity to join the program. Our hope is that this program will flourish and grow into a women’s “Never Too Late” hockey league that will include a skill component before each game.
