A quick reminder that masks are required in all areas of the Club except in the following cases:

  1. while you are in the rink and only after you have completed your pre-game handshakes and coin toss, and;
  2. while you are seated at a table or at the viewing glass and only if you are eating or drinking.

If you are seated in the lounge, but are not consuming food or drink, you may not remove your mask. This is a directive from the province and Halton Region. Please help us keep everyone safe by keeping your mask on whenever possible.

Are you interested in trying out a new league this year? There are vacancies in nearly all of our leagues due to reduced membership numbers.

We are especially looking for the following:

  • Weekend Mixed - 1 team
  • Sunday Evening Open - 2 teams
  • Sunday Evening Open Doubles - 1 team
  • Thursday Men - 1 team

While there are openings in all leagues, each league will have different entry points for new teams and players through the season, usually aligned with the start of a new series. If you are interested in joining a league part-way through the season, please contact the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or your League Director.


We are pleased to inform you that the Board has recently approved a reduction to the 2021/2022 Special Assessment Fee. The one-time fee is now $100 plus HST, rather than the previously estimated $272 plus HST. This reduction is due to higher-than-expected revenues from Summer operations, membership levels, events & rentals, bar sales, and grants & subsidies.

Adult, Intermediate, and Pandemic/Sparing members are responsible for paying the Special Assessment Fee. The fee will be charged to your online account by October 20th and is payable on November 1st.

For more information on 21/22 Membership Leagues and Fees, please click here. If you have any questions, please contact the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


When you registered for curling, certain fees - league fees and the CurlON fee - were deferred until the end of September. You had the option of making a partial payment upfront, or deferring the total payment until the end of September.  Whichever option you chose, the balance is now due.

Please log into the OCC website and reenter curling registration to pay any outstanding amounts.  You may also click here to pay.  The invoice will show any fees that are now due.

Thank you

  • Pandemic Members and Members in 1 league may spare up to 6 games total during the season
  • Members in 2 or more leagues have unlimited sparing privileges, but may not spare more than 6 times for a single team
  • There are no restrictions on WHEN a member may spare (e.g. Day Members may spare in Evening leagues)

We hope you are enjoying your long weekend. This note is to inform you of an update to our COVID-19 Vaccination Policy.


As of Tuesday, September 7th, The Oakville Curling Club will require anyone who enters the facility to show proof of being fully vaccinated (2nd dose administered by September 7th). Individuals with 2 doses who received their second dose fewer than 14 days prior to coming to the Club are required to comply with stricter health and safety protocols, including mandatory masking while curling. Individuals who are unvaccinated or have only received one dose are not permitted to enter the Club as of September 7th.

This policy is in line with the province's new proof of vaccination requirement that comes into effect on September 22nd, and ensures that everyone who enters the Club will be fully vaccinated (2 doses + 14 days) by that date. If you receive your 2nd dose between September 7th and September 22nd, you must wait until your 2-week waiting period is complete before coming to the Club. The Club is instituting this policy early to ensure the safest possible environment for curlers and staff.

This policy applies to curlers, team personnel, staff, contractors, spectators, volunteers, and all other visitors. Individuals with a medical exemption (doctor's note required) and children under 12 are exempt from this policy. Exempt individuals who are not fully vaccinated are required to comply with a stricter set of health and safety protocols.

In order to reduce the administrative burden on Club staff to verify participants' vaccination status, we are asking you to show your proof of vaccination only once, rather than every time you enter the Club. You can verify your vaccination status with us in one of two ways:

  1. In person
    1. Bring a paper or digital copy of a receipt or other document clearly showing your full name and the date of administration of a 2nd dose. You can verify your information with a member of Club Management or other staff. We will not be keeping copies of these documents on site.
  2. By email
    1. Send a pdf or jpg/png copy of a receipt for your 2nd dose, clearly showing your name and the date of administration to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). Summer League and Bonspiel teams are encouraged to send the entire team's proof in a single email prior to their next game or event.
    2. This email address will be monitored by Club Management; no other staff or directors will have access to this account. Please note that we cannot guarantee the security of this account. If you are uncomfortable sending your proof of vaccination by email, please bring a paper or digital copy with you to the Club instead.

Refunds will be issued as necessary to people who can no longer participate in Club activities. Please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to request your refund.

  • Summer League and Learn-to-Curl participants who are no longer able to participate due to their vaccination status will be issued a pro-rated refund
  • Individuals with practice ice bookings who are no longer able to use them due to their vaccination status will be issued a full refund

We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we navigate the ever-changing pandemic landscape. If you have any questions about this policy, please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


Yesterday, the province announced that as of September 22nd, all individuals 12 years of age or older must be fully vaccinated (two doses + 14 days) in order to enter the Club. This initiative helps make the Club safer for participants and staff, and helps us do our part in bringing the COVID-19 pandemic to an end.

Please bring your vaccination certificate with you EVERY TIME you visit the Club. While full-time staff may know that you are vaccinated, part-time staff may not. If you show up without your certificate, you may be turned away at the door. We appreciate your cooperation and patience while we work through this process.

Summer Leaguers,

In light of today's announcement about vaccine requirements for non-essential businesses and in anticipation of those requirements going into effect at the Club on or before September 22nd, we invite you to bring the receipt for your second dose of an approved COVID-19 vaccine to the Club with you to be verified at your next available opportunity. In order to reduce the administrative burden on Club staff to verify participants' vaccination status, we are asking you to show your receipt only once, rather than on a weekly basis, until the province's digital proof system is in place. Please verify your vaccination status with a member of Club Management or the Bar Staff.

Participants' vaccination status will be recorded by Club staff on a hard copy directory of participants that will be locked in a safe when not in use. This list will be destroyed when Summer League has concluded.

It is up to each team to ensure that all players have verified their status by September 22nd, or whenever the Board of Directors determines full vaccination is required as a condition to enter the Club, if earlier than September 22nd. We will communicate any and all changes to the Club's vaccination policy as soon as they are approved.

If you have any questions, please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


Hello Curlers!

There's been some confusion regarding game timing and especially when games should end, so we're going to start using the Club's regular Bell Rule for the 6:30pm draw starting tonight (Thursday). We have a 2-bell system:

  1. Bell 1 - 8:10pm - Complete* the end you're in and play one more;
  2. Bell 2 - 8:25pm - You are in the last end. You may not start a new end after 8:25pm.

*An end is considered 'complete' when the final rock has crossed the throwing (near) tee-line.

There will be no Bell Rule for the 9:00pm draw. Last call for the bar is midnight.

Thank you for your cooperation with this. Good curling!


Due to the changing pandemic environment and the Club's new Vaccination Policy, the deadline to register and pay for the 2021/2022 curling season has been extended to October 1st. All Club fees, excluding the 21/22 Special Assessment, are due by that date.

Please refer the Club's Refund Policy for the full payment and refund schedule.


Curling is BACK!

Summer League 2021 starts tonight with Mixed Doubles, Women's, and Triples play. We wanted to bring your attention to a few matters before we hit the ice. Please read on and let us know if you have any questions. We're looking forward to seeing you on the ice!


Registration

A reminder that every player must register and pay individually. Players that have not paid before their first game will not be allowed to curl until they do. Please check with your teammates to ensure that everyone has signed up for an OCC web account, and registered and paid for Summer League.


Covid Protocols

Click here for a brief list of health and safety protocols for Summer League. These protocols are in place for everyone's safety and we trust that everyone involved will have no trouble with that. Of note:

  1. Masks are mandatory at all times if you are unvaccinated, partially vaccinated, or fully vaccinated and received your second dose fewer than 14 days ago. Fully vaccinated players may remove their masks while sweeping or throwing, or while seated eating or drinking. Fully vaccinated players playing doubles or triples may remove their masks for the whole games, provided they are distanced at all times.
  2. We have limited space for spectators on the early draw only. We know everyone is excited that curling's back, but we ask that you leave your adoring fans at home.
  3. We encourage early draw teams to use our outdoor patio space for post-game drinks in order to create more space in the lounge between draws. There are picnic tables, tents and lights setup outside, so take advantage of the warm weather while it lasts.

The safety protocols may change at any time based on public health advice and the overall landscape of the pandemic, so please come prepared for any contigency. If you have any questions about the rules, please don't hesitate to reach out.


Spectators

A limited number of spectators may be allowed in the club during the early draw only. Spectators should not enter the club until games have started, must check in at the front desk, and may not use the lounge or bar once the games have concluded. Please notify the club if you are bringing any spectators with you.


Contact Tracing

You will receive a unique QR code prior to your first game. Please save or print the code and bring it with you to every game. Upon arrival, you will scan your code at the front desk in order to check in for your game. You must check in before every game.

If you do not receive your QR code by 3:00pm the day of your first game, please send us a quick note to let us know and we will provide you with one.
