Welcome to the Ottawa Sport Council

What's New?

When a new season ushers in, we always see a rise of popularity in at least one sport. It’s usually deemed the “new fad” or “trendy”. This year, we couldn’t help but wonder what has everyone trying the sport of stand up paddle boarding (SUP).
The Benefits of Swimming
Once the temperatures rise and the heat waves set in, we find ourselves looking for ways to cool down and enjoy the short summer season. One of the first things that comes to mind, is swimming. Swimming is one of the most popular sports in Canada. As well as being fun, swimming is a great way to keep fit and stay healthy. Swimming is an activity that you can pursue over your lifetime and has many physical and mental health benefits.
