SummerLeague SMAs the province slowly reopens, we're learning more every day about what steps the club needs to take to be ready for the upcoming season. Our traditional summer league start is mid-August, but due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the pandemic, the club has cancelled the first 2 weeks of our summer operations. The new tentative Summer League start date is Monday, August 31st (the new schedule can be found here).

Here are the big changes to Summer League:

  • Reduction in the number of weeks that Summer League plays, from 7 weeks to 4 weeks.
  • All Youth Leagues are cancelled.
    • Youth teams will be issued a full refund.
    • Youth teams who are 18+ are eligible for any of our adult leagues
  • Addition of a Triples League on Mondays at 6:00pm.

In consultation with public health authorities and the club's COVID response committee, a variety of COVID-19 safety protocols will be in place for the duration of Summer League. Depending on the reopening phase the province is in at the start of Summer League, these protocols may include:

  • Following Curling Canada's Return to Play Guidelines
  • Restricted access to lounge, bar and locker rooms
  • Modified game start times (e.g. 15 mins delayed start on every other sheet)
  • Social distancing markers and signage around the club and on the ice
  • Disinfectant dispensers and hand sanitizer stations around the club and in the rink
  • An enhanced waiver and declaration of good health
  • Enhanced check-in procedures
  • Mask recommendations or requirements, pending local bylaws and public health guidelines
  • Increased and enhanced cleaning and disinfecting procedures

We understand that, as information about the province's reopening develops, things may change even more. We recognize the possiblity of further reductions in the number of summer league games or outright cancellation of our summer operations at a later date and we will update you as we learn more.


triplesIn light of the current COVID pandemic, we'd like to announce that we will be piloting a new Triples Format during this season's Summer League!

If you're looking for a way to maximize social distancing on the ice, without having to make the switch to Mixed Doubles, Triples curling is for you! It's very similar to 4-person curling, but with increased opportunities for social distancing on the ice. For this pilot, we'll be using rules very similar to Curling Canada's Triples Rules (https://www.curling.ca/files/2020/06/Triples-Curling-Canada-EN.pdf) with some minor modifications.

Our Triples League is open to anyone 18+. It's a recreational league with no cash payouts, but meant for curlers of all skill levels.

To Summer League Participants:

Note: This is an update to a recent communication


July 30, 2020

We are getting closer to the start of the curling season and are still optimistic that our modified Summer League will happen. We've had to make a couple of addtional changes to the schedule to accommdate a slightly later start. The new schedule can be found by clicking here (note the change to the Monday schedule).

We anticipate having to make some changes to the draws in order to comply with provincial gathering limits. Specifically, we are planning for a 6-sheet (12-team) capacity per draw. This means that some teams may be asked to change draws in order to accommodate those capacity limits. If you are currently registered for the Wednesday 6:50pm Open League or Thursday 6:50pm Womens League and are willing to move to a different night/time, please contact Chris at the email below to let him know.

On that note, we are also looking for some additional teams to fill out our leagues. We have space in our Monday 6:00pm Triples and Doubles Leagues, in our Tuesday and Wednesday 9:05pm Leagues, and in our Thursday 9:05pm Doubles League. If you or someone you know are interested in playing, please have them contact Chris at the email below.

We also anticipate some rules changes on the ice. The OCC Board of Directors will be approving a Mask Policy, which will require players to wear non-medical face coverings while in the club, including on the ice. The policy may allow players to pull their masks down to their chins while sweeping or throwing. The approved policy will be communicated to you as soon as possible.

The club has been working hard to ensure everyone's safety both on and off the ice. When we are able to reopen, you can expect:

  • signage and floor-markings indicating travel patterns throughout the club
  • in-ice social distancing markers indicating where to stand to maintain a 2m distance from your fellow athletes
  • protective shields on the bar
  • staff outfitted with masks, face shields and gloves at all times
  • a modified bar ordering/purchasing system, which includes cashless transactions
  • cashless payouts for game winners
  • staggered game start times to avoid crowds on the end-boards
  • newly installed hand sanitizing stations on and off the ice
  • disinfectant wipes stations between sheets for wiping down rock handles and other equipment
  • a socially-distanced lounge layout for those who wish to stay and socialize

We understand there are a lot of questions regarding the province's 1-league limit. Curl ON has taken the lead in finding out the details about this and how it affects curling. Summer League will not proceed unless the 1-league limit is lifted, or an exemption is granted for the sport of curling, and a 100+ person gathering limit is in place by the start of the league.

More updates to follow the week of August 3. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.

SummerLeague SM

July 10, 2020

We hope this email finds you well and staying healthy. It's hard to believe that our regular Summer League start date would be a short 6 weeks away. The OCC Board of Directors has met to discuss this season's Summer League options. We have also met with a variety of other stakeholders and event organizers to get their thoughts about how or if their summer and early fall events will proceed. As a result of these conversations and in anticipation that the province will not be sufficiently reopened until at least the end of August, the board has decided to reduce our summer operations from 7 weeks to 4 weeks (the new schedule can be found here).

Here are the big changes:

  • Due to a number of large event cancellations in August, we are reducing the number of weeks that Summer League plays, from 7 weeks to 4 weeks.
    • Registered teams will be given the option to receive a prorated refund for the 3 cancelled weeks or a full refund.
    • In order to proceed with Summer League, we require an 80% net retention of currently registered teams.
    • Please complete this form to request your refund: https://forms.gle/nW8M5A9dvLwhFjmt5
  • All Youth Leagues are cancelled.
    • Youth teams will be issued a full refund.
    • Youth teams who are 18+ are eligible for any of our adult leagues
  • We are adding a Triples League on Mondays at 6:00pm.

A variety of COVID-19 safety protocols will be in place for the duration of Summer League. Depending on the reopening phase the province is in at the start of Summer League, these protocols may include:

  • Following Curling Canada's Returning to Play Guidelines
  • Restricted access to lounge, bar and locker room
  • Modified game start times (i.e. 15 mins delayed start on every other sheet)
  • Social distancing markers and signage around the club and on the ice
  • Disinfectant dispensers and hand sanitizer stations around the club and in the rink
  • An enhanced waiver and declaration of good health
  • Enhanced check-in procedures
  • Mask recommendations or requirements, pending local bylaws and public health guidelines
  • Increased and enhanced cleaning and disinfecting procedures

We understand that, as information about the province's reopening develops, things may change even more. We recognize the possiblity of further reductions in the number of summer league games or outright cancellation of our summer operations at a later date, but we wanted to give you an early opportunity to confer with your teams about your summer curling plans. We will update you as we learn more about the province's reopening and the COVID guidelines for recreational facilities.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Take care.

Rocks.and.Broom.2x1We are pleased to announce that we are offering a new league!

The new Sunday Evening Open League is a recreational, team-based, open format league geared toward novice to intermediate curlers, new members, and current members who would like to play on an open format team. Sunday Open games will be played at 4:45pm every Sunday (with the odd bye week here and there) and teams will get 17-18 games (14-15 regular season games and 3 playoff games). 

Sunday Open is considered a Social League and is billed at the Anytime Member rate. Entry into the league is on a priority basis:

  • In 2020/2021, priority will be given to teams with 4 new club members, followed by teams with 3 new club members, and so on.
  • In 2021/2022, priority will be given to teams that are returning to the league, followed by teams with new club members.

In keeping with the social aspect of the game, teams will be encouraged to participate in the traditional post-game reciprocal beverages and fun nights will be organized throughout the season (e.g Grey Cup, Christmas, Scotties/Brier, etc).

Registration priority will be given to full teams, however, individuals and couples will be welcome to register and will be matched with teammates in a suitable division based upon their experience.

The Board of Directors is excited to share a new club branding initiative with you.

Below, you'll find images of the Club's current logo and new refreshed designs. The updated designs incorporate critical elements of OCC logos of the past (the oak leaf, the corn brooms, the rock, the 'crest' style and the colours), while introducing much crisper and clearer design elements (font, clean edges, etc) that will translate beautifully in both digital and physical (merchandise) applications. While considering new designs, it was also very important to pay tribute to the Club's long-standing history by including "EST 1954" in the design.

For now, the plan for the refreshed logo involves building a new Club merchandising program (stay tuned for more info on that!). In the future, if the membership feels that the refreshed design is the direction we want to go, the new logo could be transitioned into all of the Club's digital and physical assets.

Over the next few weeks, you'll be seeing some informal polls at the Club to ask you what your preferred designs are (current or new). If you have any questions or comments about the design process or if you have suggestions about the designs themselves, please contact Chris in the Club office or any member of the Board of Directors.
