Trust in Sport exhibit photos

Current exhibit: Trust in Sport

Trust is essential in team sports. Highlights from some of Ottawa’s team sports - curling, baseball, football, hockey, rowing and lacrosse - showcase athletes who achieved success through enthusiasm, ambition, motivation as well as trust in their teammates. While it is important to have talented athletes, it is also very important to foster relationships to achieve success as a team and inspire us all.

View displays of artifacts, photographs and memorabilia highlighting various sports throughout Ottawa's sports history.
