The Ottawa Senators Rugby Club (OSRC) would like to welcome you to our website.
Founded in 1981, (first match in 1982) - [before the local hockey team, with which we have no affiliation!] - we are a bunch of 35-and-over rugby guys based in and around Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and we regularly play other over-35 and over-50 sides within the Montreal-Toronto-Ottawa triangle. We frequently venture further afield for matches, including two annual tournaments and other fixtures in the U.S., and annual home-and-away games against Quebec City. We hold regular social events throughout the season, including during the unplayable winter months!
We train on Tuesdays from 6:30 p.m. at Gloucester High School field (2060 Ogilvie Road) in the summer and at the Elgin Street police gym during the winter, followed by "choir practice" in the Arrow & Loon pub, Bank Street and Fifth.
We're always looking for new players and our playing season begins in May (once the pitches have defrosted and dried out a bit!) at home (Twin Elm Rugby Park) and usually ends in late October. If you are 34 or over and you want to stay in the game (or even play it for the first time!), please contact our Recruitment Coordinator, JF Gaudreau (Jean-Francois.Gaudreau@cegepoutaouais.qc.ca).
Come and join us - stay in The Game!
