Formed in 2022, the OVA Athlete Council was established to help the Association better engage with athlete members and to amplify their voice on the Board of Directors with the Athlete Representative. The council is comprised of Ontario athletes from all backgrounds and experience - indoor, beach, sitting, Team Ontario, post secondary, professional and Team Canada.
List of Athlete Council members:
The Council met twice in 2022 and have another one approaching. The group has been discussing and sharing ideas on a multitude of topics ranging from clinics, recruitment, pathways, nutrition and inclusion and how the OVA can integrate these items into its regular dialogue.
We're excited with what the group has been bringing to the table and look forward to further discussions with the goal of bringing their insight into the fold to continually improve the OVA athlete experience.
