The Sports & Leadership League (SLL) is Ottawa’s only FREE, year-round competitive sports program for youth ages 6-18. It focuses on skills development, leadership, and teaching the importance of responsible and healthy competition whilst providing a healthy and safe environment for Members to have fun playing sports.
As the core program of the BGC Ottawa Physical Activity and Healthy Lifestyle program pillar, the SLL is offered in all Clubhouse locations.
Members participate in five main sports: Ball hockey, basketball, soccer, baseball and walking. Members also have the opportunity to participate in other sports clinics, excursions and special events. The SLL offers trained coaches, awards banquets, uniforms, and certified officials. Some highlights of the program include skills competitions and all-star games.
There is no fee for youth who participate annually, and all equipment and transportation are provided by BGC Ottawa. The SLL currently serves over 1,500 Members from 19 neighbourhoods across the city of Ottawa.
