The University of Ottawa Gee-Gees will take to the ice starting in the 1999-2000 season, and will play in the Quebec league (QSSF) along with the likes of Concordia, McGill, and the University of Quebec-Trois Rivieres. Many people have invested time, money and effort into this project, especially the head coach Norm Chouinard. Along with the newly appointed duties of head coach, he is also a professor at the university, has his master level in coaching of hockey, presently helps the Ottawa Senators of the NHL, and was an enormous help in the acquisition of the team. Acting as an assistant coach is Ed Ratushny, a law professor at the university, level 5 coach, and creator, along with Chouinard, of the National Capital Competitive Program (NCCP), which is composed of the best female hockey players in the Ottawa area. Also an assistant coach is Angela Martin, who is a student of human kinetics at the university, and at time of graduation, will receive her level 3 coaching of hockey. She wrote the proposal which eventually brought the team. The Gee-Gees have a 22 game schedule, in addition to the participation in a few tournaments. They have named three honorary members to the team who are also Ottawa alumni: Jacques Martin, Head Coach of the Ottawa Senators, Murray Costello of the Canadian Hockey Association, and Kim Ratuschny of the 1990 Women's World Championship team.
