Sep 18, 2014 - UMMAA Is Back!
I hope everyone is excited to hear those sweet sounds of that hardwood pounding, net-swishing, double-dribbling crossover euro-stepping actioin that we all know and love!
This year, InshaAllah, things are going to be different. More organized, more opportunity, more fun. Let's all hope we can co-operate, have patience and help out as much as possible - All for the sake of Allah SWT - and make this as good as we know we can make it. Remember...as an Ummati, we must strive for the betterment of our Iman, first and foremost, and then - and only then - can we expect to make progress in this Dunya. With that in mind, a few reminders:
- Absolutely No Swearing/Vulgar language will be tolerated.
- Absolutely No Fighting. You will be banned.
- All participants are expected to attend prayer when it is time to do so. You will be asked to leave and not come back until the week after for blatant failure to adhere to this.
- Since we will be praying in the gym, so we shall treat it with the same respect as if one was entering the Masjid; therefore, I ask that everyone please perform ablution before coming to play or waiting for your game to start. We'd like to limit the time spent on waiting for everyone to perform ablution to pray, so to make it as prompt as possible please make this a practice. Ideally 15 minutes should suffice for prayer time.
- Please do not dispose of the brown paper towels in the toilet. We received many warnings from the Board last year and they threatened to cancel our permit if it persisted. It's simple really...there's another round hole with a black bag inside it that would be happy to take your waste - USE IT!
- Arrange for pick-up at 10:15, not 10:30. We need to be out by that time, so any hagglers will be asked to stay home if this problem persists.
I don't mean to sound like the second coming of Hitler or anything, but these are very simple expectations and not hard to live by. It makes things easier for me, you, and everyone else. So, please follow these reminders to the best of your ability and make dua that all runs smoothly for all. More will be discussed and revealed as time passes InshaAllah. Forward any questions to my email at email@example.com.
JazakAllah for your time and see you soon InshaAllah!

Mar 19, 2014 - Welcome Back!!!
Sorry for being MIA for sooo long...honestly, it had been so long that I forgot my username and password and for some reason when I requested for help from this website I didn't get any notification...but anywho I figured it out and back with some updates! (yay - isn't that exciting!)
I realized that the events calendar hadn't been updated for quite some time, so, I'm happy to announce that the schedule for the remainder of the school year is up. Please make note of the dates where there are no bookings - those are dates that they have not given us the gym, not because I forgot to fill it in! And again, the reason for us not having anything booked can range from long weekends to something else being booked.
Also, if you don't know already, Wednesdays and Fridays gym time is not available until Wednesday, April 30th, 2014 due to the gym being used for wrestling or gymnastics. After that, we're good to go.
Anything else, send me a message here or on our facebook page www.facebook.com/oneommaa.
Jan 30, 2014 - General Announcements
Assalamualaikum...This message is to notify all Division B participants that Exhibition Games will begin this Friday, January 31st, 2014 at Stewart Ave. If you or someone else you know want to and haven't joined yet, now's your chance. If you've been coming out - keep coming! The teams will be playing together for the first time and Inshaallah The OMMAA Season will finally begin. Game time is scheduled to be after Isha, around 8:00 PM or 8:30 PM at the very very latest. Games will consist of Four 8-minute quarters with substitutions at 4:00 of every quarter. No stop time until last 4:00 of 4th Quarter. Timings and rules are still tentative. Please be present Friday for further details.
Also, I will be taking down orders for jerseys this Friday, so I will need to know what size jersey you would like, name on back (last name in all likelihood), and choice of 3 numbers.
For participants in Division A - Please come out Friday from 7:00 to 10:30 PM. You will be asked to stay off the gym floor during Division B games. I would like to finalize involvement for Division A this Friday InshaAllah. If you know anyone who hasn't come yet or came once or twice before and is committed to playing, please notify them of our times. Also, if you're interested in gaining volunteer hours towards completing your high school requirements, this is the time to be involved.
In regards to the jerseys: If you wish not to apply for fee assistance, you will be required to pay for the jersey by your own means as well as covering your portion of insurance (a nominal fee). We strongly encourage that all participants at least apply. Pleaes speak to Program Co-ordinator for any further questions.
This Friday there will also be a sign-up for OMMAA Ball Hockey and Soccer for those who are interested. Ball Hockey will likely start in April in one of the city hockey arenas. Soccer will likely be played at either Lions Can-Amera Park (located at Clemens Mills Public School) or Churchill Park (close by Glenview Park SS and Monsignor Doyle Catholic High School). Again, come out for more information/details.
And finally one last notice: Brothers, please remember this is an Islamic environment, and as such we should conduct ourselves with the utmost attention to pleasing Allah Subhana-watalla. Please watch your language, dress appropriately, and help others. Be prepared to pray Isha with Jamaat at 7:30PM (tentative - will change throughout course of the year as days become longer). Do not engage in slanderous back-biting or belittlement of any individuals as this will lead to your removal from any OMMAA programs.
Jazakallah for your time.
