COVID-19 and OCUA Events Operations

The Ottawa Carleton Ultimate Association is carefully monitoring the COVID-19 novel coronavirus situation with regard to our league operations and larger events.

* UPDATE (Thursday, May 21): All OCUA leagues and events are suspended until further notice. The City of Ottawa has closed all sportsfields until June 30th and all special events until August 31st. July 2nd is the potential start date for youth and adult leagues, however, OCUA will not start summer league until it is deemed safe to do so. The board of directors will re-evaluate the situation no later than June 16. *

UPI: Under Phase 1 of the provincial government's plan, UPI, as a private park, is allowed to re-open. OCUA is setting up a disc golf course that will be available for use by members. We are hoping to re-open the park by May 29. More details and guidelines to follow.

Summer league registration remains open knowing that adjustments to the season will need to be made. Teams are encouraged to sign up and pay only the $200 deposit to secure their team's registration and allow them to start managing their roster. This will help OCUA manage operations and will make any possible financial adjustments easier to manage. If members feel uneasy paying for their registration, they may leave it as unpaid for the time being.

OCUA will also be taking its direction from federal, provincial, and local health agencies. Below are helpful links:
