The Ontario Curling Council (OCC), the recognized Provincial Sport Organization for curling in Ontario, with its members and sport governing bodies – CurlON (Ontario Curling Association) and Northern Ontario Curling Association (NOCA) – are pleased to present this joint strategic plan, intended to guide the direction of our three organizations through the next quadrennial.
We are proud of the accomplishments we have achieved from our last strategic plan, but our plans were interrupted by the global pandemic. Managing our operations and assisting our member curling facilities through the last two years has been our primary focus. We are hopeful that the 2022-2023 season will operate more normally and that we can get back to working closely with our member curling facilities and partner organizations to recover and grow even stronger.
We’re excited for the future – never before have the three curling organizations in Ontario been more aligned. We’re committed to working efficiently together to maximize our impact and motivate member curling facilities to engage in our proven programs and services. Together, we can attract new curlers of all backgrounds, ages and abilities, retain our current curlers and get them curling more!
We want to support our curling athletes and help them reach whatever their personal aspirations may be, while proving that Ontario and Northern Ontario teams are forces to be reckoned with on the national stage. We know we need to build capacity – volunteers, officials, coaches, ice technicians, boards and facility managers – and we are committed to training and connecting these important people.
We will continue to lead the sport of curling with strong governance, fiscal responsibility, programs, training and attention to creating a safe and positive environment for all of our participants.
The OCC, CurlON, and NOCA will execute these strategic objectives in the way that best suits each of their organizations, member curling facilities and regional challenges. Our Strategic Plan will be supported with annual operational plans for each organization.
We’re optimistic that our plan will inspire and energize Ontarians to be involved in this great sport we all love.
