The OVCA is committed to helping its member clubs and centers.  Whether through our Development Fund, help in hosting competitive events, or financial assistance with youth programs, the OVCA can help your club grow and thrive.

 

Financial Support for Clubs

The OVCA can help your member club or centre financially, whether through team funding assistance, or through capital loans at very competitive rates.  See what the OVCA can offer your club!

For more information on these programs, please consult the specific policies.

Loans

Clubs may apply for loans up to $30,000 at a rate of Royal Bank prime minus 1%. The OVCA Board of Administrators is the manager of this fund. Approximately $1.2 million has been loaned under this program. Currently, nine of the 45 member clubs have loans in place - and since the initiation of the fund, all but six of the OVCA member clubs have utilized these loans. 

Grants

The Ottawa Valley Curling Association (OVCA) can provide grants for energy efficiency and accessibility capital projects, adult learn-to-curl programs, specialty league ice rentals, the purchase of youth rocks, and for teams representing the OVCA at provincial, national and international competitions.

Event Hosting Support

The Ottawa Valley Curling Association (OVCA) will provide sponsorship funds to OVCA member clubs hosting provincial final competitions and national competitions up to a maximum of $1,000 providing the competition is either the penultimate step (at a provincial level) to a national sanctioned Curling Canada event or is the final step - a Curling Canada-national sanctioned event. 

Web Hosting

The OVCA offers free web hosting services to its member clubs and centres. Many OVCA clubs have taken advantage of this service which is a great way to connect with your members and provide information to potential curlers.
