What's New

  • OCUA is happy to confirm the leagues and programs being offered for the second half of the indoor season. With the recent lockdown and the adjustments made to Winter Session 1 leagues as a result of that lockdown, the second half is a bit shorter than our members would typically see, but we’re excited to introduce…..SPRING INDOOR!   
  • We are happy to announce that all of our facilities have now confirmed their reopening date, in alignment with the easing of restrictions from the Ontario Government, and that all restrictions to the reopening (ex: 50% capacity) allow for OCUA leagues to resume to full play starting the week of January 31.  
  • Dear OCUA Members, As with the past 20 months, navigating the pandemic has required adjustment, adaptation and understanding. The OCUA leadership has been continually monitoring the evolving COVID19 situation, watching the Government of Ontario updates, reading bulletins and reviewing notices from Ottawa’s Medical Officer of Health, and along with the surging case counts and infection rates.
  • Following the most recent Public Health guidelines and in alignment with facility regulations, OCUA Session 1 programming is set to resume January 3, 2022 (with the exception of leagues playing at Carleton University or U of Ottawa - check inbox for update on those leagues/programs). 
  • With the emergence of the new variant and with Public Health regulations and restrictions changing frequently, OCUA is taking the time to review how leagues and programs will proceed in the New Year and will update our membership in the coming weeks.
  • Recently, OCUA sat down (physically distanced, of course) with Women's League coordinator & Wonderwoman, Jessie Robinson, to talk about the increasingly popular program, its successes and just what makes it so special.  To read the first in our series of Program Spotlights, click here.

Applications to join the EDI Committee for a two year term will be due Friday May 6, at 5:00 pm. Please send your application to inclusion@ocua.ca
 
Candidates should address the following in their application:

We welcome applications from all qualified candidates, especially those who would contribute to the further diversification of the Committee.
