OBBHA Founders

John Struthers
President
Adult League

Born in 1962. My first love was playing ball hockey on the streets of Montreal and Ottawa. While living in Grenada, West Indies€, I even taught the locals a version of ball hockey on the beaches! Currently, I am a private consultant with my own business specializing in government and public relations. I was President of the West End Ball Hockey League (based out of Merivale Arena) from 1991 to 2004. I am on the OBBHA team for the fun and exercise quotients which are set at the highest level and create something special for the ball hockey world.

 

Trevor Polk has joined the OBBHA as its new President of the Youth Program and becomes Co-President of the Adult Leagues.

John Struthers and Trevor Polk will now take the OBBHA to the next level of fun beginning this Fall starting with Opening Games for divisions September 3 through 9th.

-Members will begin receiving the details in early August

Ball Hockey has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember! Although I played several years of Ice Hockey, Ball Hockey was the sport that resonated with me the most as I continue to play the sport through various leagues, levels and tournaments across Canada and the United States. Sport and Fitness are closely tied to my professional life as well as I have spent over 10 years working in Recreation with the City of Ottawa before moving to the newest Multi-Sport facility in Ottawa - The Rideau Sports Centre. Through my involvement with both Rideau Sports Centre and OBBHA, my goal is to grow the sport and improve it's accessibility for all ages and levels of play for years to come.
