The Waterloo Memorial Recreation Complex features the Sun Life Financial Arena, an Olympic-size ice rink with seating for 3,400. The ice is covered in the summer to allow for special events such as OBC and OJBC.  Athletes competing in at this event had to qualify by competing at one of five Ontario Regional Boccia Series events. This event includes Ontarians in all six boccia classifications, including BC1-5 and Open classes.  Program Manager, Juliana von Cramon, is looking forward to another successful Provincials, “We’re very excited to be hosting OBC in Waterloo for the first time. We hope by doing so that there will be a lasting impact on the community and that future programming may develop. The Sun Life Financial Area is the perfect setting for a high level Provincial Championships where the competition will be fierce. We encourage the community to come check it out!”  Fans at home and attendees can follow all the action on the OCPSA YouTube page. OCPSA’s Director of Boccia, Adam Dukovich, commented on the competitions, “I’m looking forward to the climax of the Ontario Boccia provincial season. Athlete’s have been working so hard to get here. The staff has found us a great venue for our championships to make the event feel like the Super Bowl of Ontario Boccia. As the Director of Boccia, I’m so proud of everyone involved and look forward to watching a great event.  Find all the information regarding the 2023 Ontario Boccia Championships here and the Ontario Junior Boccia Championships here.
