OCUA would like to notify members that City of Ottawa city field allocations has changed for 2023 and impacted the number of city fields given for league nights -- as sports clubs and teams continue to return to the fields, allocations have changed to allow for some balance amongst the many sport and recreation groups throughout Ottawa. So what does this mean for OCUA Adult Summer Leagues & OCUA's members? There will be a shift in field distribution with each league night having a great majority of their games scheduled for UPI over city fields. We are fortunate, as the number of user groups increases across the city, to have our very own sports park that guarantees OCUA members a field to play on! OCUA staff will continue to work with the city in an effort to secure additional city fields, and will update the league information pages where applicable. 

A reminder to OCUA membership, for summer and fall mixed divisions, OCUA has implemented WFDF Gender Ratio Rule B
