The greatest thing about winter is the opportunity to skate outside. There are no registration fees, equipment costs or transportation issues. Kids just need a stick, skates a puck and some cold weather. The Ottawa Senators Foundation believes all kids deserve an opportunity to play and are making investments to break down the barriers to sport and recreation activities. To date, the Foundation has built 15 SENS RINKS (Recreational Investments in Neighbourhoods for Kids) in Ottawa, Smith’s Falls and Gatineau, Que., with plans for five more.
