The OTSE was founded and created with the purpose of providing South Asian youth the opportunity to grow as individuals through competitive sports. Currently the OTSE operates with three leagues; OTBL, OTSBL, and WOTSL. By providing the youth of Toronto with such avenues for extra-curricular activities, helps guide and mentor them through pivotal years. OTSE provides a safe environment for youth to not only be physically active, but also allows them to network and create lasting relationships. In turn also helping them develop necessary skills and attributes that can most effectively be taught through competitive sports. Although all three leagues are operated under the OTSE banner, each has its own commissioner, set of bylaws, and rules of conduct. The leagues initially were catered specifically to the Tamil community, but after having such a positive impact on the vast Tamil population in Ontario, the leagues have opened registration for all members of the South Asian community.

OTSE is currently looking for sponsors for the 2016-2017 season.
Every year we try to spotlight a new sponsor for whichever league they would like to be associated with. Sponsors will be involved in their campaign throughout the year with OTSE. We believe in an approach to sponsorships where working with the established businesses, lead to financial stability for the league but also increase brand awareness and appeal for the sponsor. Sponsoring a league is not about just having your marketing materials present on game days, or logos embroidered on jerseys, but a sponsorship embodies the fact that we at OTSE are making a difference in the South Asian community, and that you would like to be a catalyst for our continued growth and impact in Ontario.
