Adult Men’s League News

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!

Hello Team Captains and Individual players: Fall 2019 Registration is on!

OBBHA Men’s and Women’s Leagues (including our Saturday Co-ed/Mixed league) start with Opening Night Games on Tuesday, September 3 through Monday, September 9. (see all dates below or www.obbha.ca)

Your OBBHA Home in the French Palace will be celebrating our 11th Season.

Recent renovations 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 2019 Fall Session:

Email [email protected] by Wednesday, August 15 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, Stars, Kings and Queens, Dragons etc.)
