DOMINION CURLING CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP:

An annual event for men’s and women’s curling teams who have won their respective local club championships. Winning teams from each club will be “The Dominion Club Champions” and will play down to produce a provincial/territorial champion from all ten provinces and three territories, plus a separate entry for Northern Ontario, who will then compete at the national level.

The event gives grass roots curling teams from every corner of the country an opportunity to compete in provincial/territorial and national level competition. Club curlers are those who enjoy the sport recreationally, supporting club leagues on a regular basis from September to April. These teams now have a venue to demonstrate their skill against other curling clubs in their province/territory and country.

This is the ultimate experience for club curlers. Provincial and Territorial Champions receive travel, accommodations, many meals, provincial/territorial on-ice jackets and shirts as well as a championship banner to hang proudly in their home club – all courtesy of The Dominion.

This link will tell you more about the Dominion Curling Club Championship. Since the Club Championships are run differently at the OCC the plans for making this a separate event are being worked out. Please watch this space and the bulletin boards for more information.

OCC CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP: Played in April, the date is decided upon annually.

The Club Championship, as played at the OCC, is a 16 team closed event consisting of league winners plus a number of teams that have performed well in those leagues.  It is a unique event where a team from each league, regardless of prowess level, can play against other teams of all strength levels; it is especially fun for teams not normally able to play strong teams like from the Cash League for instance. 

Who can play? Representatives from all eight OCC leagues.

  1. Monday Ladder - 3 teams are the A1, A2, B1 winners at season's end
  2. Tuesday Women - The league champion
  3. Tuesday Getting Started League - Their champion
  4. Wednesday Cash - 5 top money winners
  5. Thursday Men - 3 teams comprised of A1, A2, Wild Card (A3 plays B1)
  6. Friday Mixed - The league champion
  7. Saturday Men - The league champion
  8. University/College League - The league champion
