Who are we?

Established in 2000, The Ottawa Blues are a well renowned Ball hockey team in the Ottawa area and have been around with accomplished players while achieving great success in their sport.

As active members of that team, we are combining our effort and passion for this great game to provide the young boys and girls in our community the best sport experience around.

What is the OBBHA YOUTH LEAGUE?..TEAMS? STANDINGS? STATS? 
 
The best way to describe what we do is ''structured shinny''
A typical session starts with a collective warm up and then we split the players and follow with many versions of full and modified games.
We change our approach from week to week.
There is no league, set teams, no standings and no stats. We pride ourselves on our 4 F's motto:
FUN.....FITNESS....FRIENDSHIP & FAIRPLAY!
