OVRD is coming back to the Leo Boivin Community Centre, (444 Prince St, Prescott, ON)  the weekend of March 20-22, 2020 and we’re bringing 3 other leagues from Ontario: Royal City (Guelph), TORD (Toronto), and Tri-City (Kitchener-Waterloo-Cambridge) 

Seeking Volunteers:

We’re looking for volunteers willing to help out the weekend of March 20th – 22nd. If you volunteer for just two shifts of 2 hrs each you’ll get a weekend pass to watch the rest of the tournament for free! Students if you are interest in earning some volunteer hours and being part of something cool, sign-up today. No experience is necessary! We’ll work with you to figure out the best position.
