Welcome to the Ottawa Sport Council
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.
HIRING- Marketing, Communications and Event Coordinator – SUMMER STUDENT
The Marketing, Communications and Event Coordinator will create and deliver an awareness campaign to highlight the support offered by the Ottawa Sport Council to community sporting organizations and to promote the Ottawa Sport Council Sport Summit. Activities will include writing of articles, newsletters, press releases, and success stories as well as development of the communication plan for the Ottawa Sport Summit.
Practicing Safe Sport
As Canadians, we endure cold and often long winters, waiting for months for the warm weather to finally peak its head out. Although we have an abundance of great indoor facilities here in the Nation’s Capital, there really is nothing like being able to play the sports we love in the fresh, open air.
