Game Play Suspended
On Friday, Halton Region’s Medical Officer of Health issued a recommendation that all indoor team sports be limited to training only and that sports organizations should not engage in games or scrimmages. In light of this, the Board has concluded that we have no choice but to comply with the recommendation and accordingly has decided that the Club will be immediately suspending all game play and temporarily making the ice available for practice and training only until further notice.
The game play suspension will last 2 weeks to give the Board time to assess the implications of the recommendations by the Medical Officer of Health for our Club and to determine our options.
Practice ice will be available starting Wednesday, October 21st. Practice ice time slots can be booked online, through the Club’s regular ice booking module. A reminder that you must be logged into your OCC website account to access the ice booking module. More information about practice ice rules and protocols will be available early this week.
The Board and Club Management will be contacting Halton Public Health to clarify the recommendation details and explore the possibility of getting an exemption/allowance for curling to continue under the current pandemic conditions and with our Return-to-Play protocols in place.
We understand that this news comes as a disappointment and the Board will keep you apprised of the situation as it develops. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Board or Club Management.

Curling is a unique sport that requires both skill and strategy. It is often referred to as chess on ice. It is a lifelong sport that can be learned at any age. Whether playing in a fun league or in a competitive ladder the emphasis is always on sportsmanship and fair play. Being a social sport by nature, it is not uncommon for teams to socialize off the ice where lasting friendships are often made.
