PROVIDING CHILDREN'S RECREATIONAL SPORTS
How to help
Since 1946, O.C.C.N.A. has successfully organized recreational sports for the children of Oshawa. These programs are operated by the N.A.S.C. (Neighbourhood Association Sports Committee) which is a sub-committee of the O.C.C.N.A. (Oshawa Central Council of Neighbourhood Associations). Please CLICK HERE to find out more about us and how YOU, can get involved!
Our sports programs for many years have been recognized by the readers of Durham Parent magazine as the #1 Sports program in Durham Region.
The mission of O.C.C.N.A. is to provide kids the opportunity to play houseleague sports. In addition to our network of local area clubhouses, O.C.C.N.A. also oversees N.A.S.C. Sports.
N.A.S.C. Sports consists of three (3) programs. Soccer and Softball in the summer, and recreational ice hockey in the winter months. For more information on our kids sports programs, please click the N.A.S.C. Sports link above.
Latest community projects
O.C.C.N.A. is part of the fabric of the community of Oshawa. It is through our oversight of N.A.S.C. Sports, in working closely with our partner arena users groups, we were able to help have a vital part of our community, Harman Park arena, renovated on-time, and on-budget to service the children for the next generations to come!
Thank you to the members of Oshawa City Council and our sports partners for making this one of the most successful projects we have ever participated in.
New Canadian Tire Jumpstart® Chapter
Helps Local Kids ‘Get in the Game’
Canadian Tire Jumpstart has launched a new Chapter to help financially disadvantaged kids in Oshawa to get involved in organized sport and recreation.
Canadian Tire Jumpstart is a national charitable program that helps ‘get kids in the game’ by covering registration, equipment or transportation costs. Since 2005, the program has helped more than 894,110 kids across Canada through its network of local Chapters.
“We are excited to establish a new Chapter in Oshawa”, said Dave Clifford, Canadian Tire Dealer. “With a locally-based Chapter, we will be able to help more kids and have impact on the lives of the kids living right here in Oshawa.”
The new Oshawa Chapter will be made of: Oshawa N.A.S.C. Hockey and Oshawa N.A.S.C. Soccer and the Canadian Tire Store. As part of this new Chapter, these community partners will help identify those who can benefit the program and help raise funds that stay in the community.
“Our customers and staff have shown outstanding support and generosity for the Canadian Tire Jumpstart program,” commented Dave Clifford. “Now that we have a local Chapter, we encourage people to continue to support Canadian Tire Jumpstart whenever they can because the funds raised locally will go to support kids in our community.”
