Hello Ottawa! We are very proud to welcome you to SportsOttawa.com – The Heartbeat of the Ottawa Sports Community.
Take a video tour
of SportsOttawa.com -- what we do, and why we exist!
You’ve found the new home for anything and everything related to sports in Ottawa. We specialize in delivering the latest sports news, photos and videos from all the local rinks, fields, gyms, pools, courses, tracks, courts – whatever your game, we’ve got it covered.
Our motivation is to fill a gap in local sports coverage that’s existed for far too long in the nation’s capital and to share our passion for sport with a thriving sports community that owns it in spades.
With a focus on high schools, universities, community clubs, junior leagues and elite amateur sport, we provide exposure and recognition for all the athletes who may not be making millions, but have all kinds of amazing stories of their own to tell, and deserve a piece of the spotlight.
We need YOU to help us make SportsOttawa.com the best it can be! Know a team that just won its league or the provincial title? Or an athlete who's reached overcome major challenges to reach a high level? Is your club hosting a competition or tournament? Send all your news tips to firstname.lastname@example.org
We also highly encourage story, photo and video submissions on any topic as long as it meets two criteria – sports and Ottawa. The “Your News” section provides a place to share all your great sports stories with the rest of the city and beyond.
As you can see, there’s lots more than just straight news on our site. We’ve got video reports and highlights, blogs on all kinds of different subjects, star athlete-of-the-week features, links to league standings and headlines from other media outlets, and we’ll continue to offer more as we grow.
Please let us know what you think! Your feedback and ideas will help us truly become the place that the Ottawa sports community has been craving.
We are the publishers of the Ottawa Sportspage, a free monthly tabloid newspaper available for pickup at newsstands across the city wherever sports are played on the first Tuesday of the month.
For our advertisers and business partners, we provide an audience that no other media outlet in the city does – a targeted regional sports niche market. The Sportspage
has the lowest print advertising rates available in Ottawa and our web site provides another cost-efficient venue to reach a vibrant community of coaches, parents, managers, administrators, officials, volunteers, sponsors, fans and of course athletes involved in a wide range of sports and activities.
