VO is recruiting and deploying volunteers to respond to the volunteer needs specific to COVID-19 in Ottawa, Prescott-Russell, Lanark County and Renfrew County while ensuring proper screening and training protocals to safeguard the health of those volunteering and those they are assisting. Please see the intake portals for volunteers, for members, and for other agencies on our hompage. VO’s COVID 19 volunteer deployment program is supported by the Government of Canada’s Emergency Community Support Fund and the Ottawa Community Foundation.
The real goal of Green Wave is to use soccer as a fun way to get boys and girls engaged in physical activity. We believe that young players are the cornerstone of soccer as they are and always will be the future of the sport. Much more important than winning games is the gaining of those values deep-rooted in soccer: fair play, persistence, the urge to do better, forming life long friendships and the sportive spirit.
Whether young players chose soccer as a lifelong sport is determined to a high degree by the content of the training programme, the expertise and experience of the coaches, the atmosphere in the club and the structure of the formative competitions.
