Adult Men’s League News

NEXT GAMES WILL BE WHEN IT IS SAFE…STAY TUNED TO MAIN PAGE NOTICE BOARD…the below will be updated with new dates then.

**********************************************

The first games back will be the week of Monday, August 31st through to Thursday, September 3rd, 2020…note the Saturday and Sunday leagues will start on September 12th and 13th.

-We look forward to a full fun session!!

*The Winter Session faced the Covid-19 pandemic that ended our fun time at the French Palace in Mid-March.  We contacted the team captains and individuals on league built teams about the credits or money owed to the league. If you have not heard from your captain, please contact your captain or John “Struts" Struthers. We will be in touch in late July/early August as usual for the Fall Session. Stay safe and healthy! 

Hello Team Captains and Individual players: Fall 2020 Registration is on!

OBBHA Men’s and Women’s Leagues (including our Saturday Co-ed/Mixed league) start with Opening Night Games on Monday, August 31 through Thursday, September 3. Note the Saturday and Sunday leagues will start on September 12th and 13th. (see all dates below or www.obbha.ca)

Your OBBHA Home in the French Palace will be celebrating our 12th Season.

Renovations from a few years ago still have the feel of a brand spanking new facility: Including new playing surface and new change-rooms/bathrooms/showers!

Register your team (or group of players we can help form a team with) for the 2020 Fall Session:

Email [email protected] by Wednesday, August 12 if you are putting in a team this Fall, and then follow the payment schedule and other details set out below. Any team captain that puts in a second team will have his $140 player fee taken off that team fee…and once again we have a limited number of teams that can receive a corporate sponsorship of $300 for playing a second night with the same group of players.

Individuals looking to get on an adult team please contact [email protected]

-the league built teams will be contacted as teams through team emails in the next few weeks. (Perfect Blend, All Mesh, Pylons, Polk’s Heroes, Yellow Arrows, Mighty Ducks etc.)

OBBHA News Alerts!

Check the renewed website www.obbha.ca for updates in News/Articles links.

Plus the ever popular Game Recaps and Twitterposts [email protected] and Instagram every Game Night…6 nights a week! (Friday is date night…). The Rock and Roll continues as Music will always be played for your warm-ups and period breaks. The request line is always open! Send in advance or see Struts or Trevor. “Dance like nobody is watching"

Note: All league games will be played in the French Palace (including for the XMAS Classic tournament on Saturday,  December 5th this year).

OBBHA News!

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

The news was tweeted out late Wednesday, July 10th.

Jason Prevost, an original founder of the OBBHA in 2008, has announced his retirement from the OBBHA after 10 years.
Prevost was a key to the OBBHA growing the game of ball hockey for youth, men and women. He will remain an ambassador of the OBBHA and continue to represent Ottawa and Team Canada at the Masters level as a player. 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

Congrats Trevor Polk!
