New SENS Power Plays program to give kids the opportunity to play

OTTAWA – The Ottawa Senators Foundation (@sensfoundation) and Their Opportunity (@their_opp) have announced a new three-year $150,000 partnership to create the SENS Power Plays program. This announcement represents another significant multi-year financial contribution that the Ottawa Senators Foundation has made in the area of social recreation in the region.

“We’re very proud to be partnering with Their Opportunity and to invest $50,000 per year in a program that will impact children and youth across the region,” said Danielle Robinson, president and CEO of the Ottawa Senators Foundation. “The new SENS Power Plays program will give deserving kids an opportunity to experience sport and foster important skills such as teamwork and leadership while building self-confidence.”

With the objective of providing low-income families with the means to enroll their children in local sports programs, new funding will alleviate the financial costs of enrollment and/or equipment fees, enabling children to develop the confidence, social skills and a healthy lifestyle that is attainable through sport.

“The Ottawa Senators Foundation has become an advocate and a game changer for the children in Their Opportunity’s program and throughout the region,” said Randy Gill, president and CEO of Their Opportunity. “The new SENS Power Plays program will provide opportunity for so many more children in the region to become additionally involved in a community which truly cares for them.”

About the Ottawa Senators Foundation

The Ottawa Senators Foundation empowers children and youth to reach their full potential by investing in social recreation and education programs that promote both physical and mental wellness. In partnership with the Ottawa Senators Hockey Club, alumni association, corporate partners and fans, more than $110 million has been contributed to thousands of initiatives and charities in the National Capital Region.

About Their Opportunity

Their Opportunity is a grassroots charity that exists to provide low-income families with the means to enroll their children in organized sports and recreation programs. Additionally, within three months of receiving funding, each child is mandated to “pay-it-forward” through their Giveback Program. The program inspires hope while teaching essential life skills of teamwork and compassion; proving that only one change in a child’s life can create an opportunity for inspiration and change, while further impacting the community.
