OCA Ice Team

The OCA Ice Team consists of a group of highly qualified Ice Technicians that are available to OCA member clubs at no charge* to assist with any issues they may be experiencing with their ice, equipment or facility.  Help for club Ice Technicians in getting more curl or less curl, getting rid of runs, etc. is only as far away as the telephone and if a personal visit is needed, that too can be arranged.

The Ice Team is also available at no charge to work with the club Board of Directors to evaluate equipment and the facility and to give advice before large amounts of money are spent.  Assessment of rocks and guidance on how to match rocks is also available.

(* The OCA Ice Team Member may negotiate a fee if extra work beyond the scope of the OCA Ice Team guidelines is requested)

The ice is an integral part of any curling club and needs regular attention. To help club ice technicians and volunteers understand the requirements the OCA Ice Team has put together a number of useful documents for download:
