Team Food Pre-Order Options
The EY Centre will be offering Pre-Order Lunches! This great way to beat the line and plan ahead! Orders should be submitted 7 days before the event. Click the order form below (Will be posted closer to the event) and follow the directions on how to submit an order.
Lunchroom space is set up in Meeting Rooms B, C & D at the EY Centre. Tables are not reserved. Please respect the space and remove personal belongings so all teams have a table to eat at.
Remember: No outside coolers are allowed. No buffet-style set ups allowed. Athletes are permitted to bring in brown-bagged lunch options. No food delivery permitted to be consumed inside the convention centre.
We understand the disappointment this may have caused and want to express our gratitude for your understanding and patience as we navigated through this situation. Permitting issues are always a possibility when hosting events of this magnitude, and while the OVA and the Vendors took every precaution to ensure a smooth experience, some factors were out of our control.
We're taking steps to prevent such issues in the future and your feedback is invaluable in helping us improve our operations. Your support is what makes our events successful, and we appreciate your continued trust.
SixPack Sports Recruiting will still have an information booth on site with valuable information and contact information. This booth will remain unmanned as required by the venue and the City of Ottawa Bylaw.

Hudson Travel Group (HTG) is excited to be partnering with the OVA for the 2023-2024 regular season convention centre weekends. HTG has secured hotel blocks at the hotels closest to each convention centre and throughout the city and look forward to working with your team to secure your room needs. Please be assured that they have worked to secure the lowest room rates possible in these hotel blocks. If you find a lower rate online, please let them know so they can address it with the hotels.
Please ensure your hotel bookings go directly through Hudson Travel Group vs the hotels directly for the OVA to obtain the best possible rates for the event.
Tuesday October 10th at 10:00am
- Teams travelling 550+km (one-way) will have early access to hotels. Link will be emailed to team contact ahead of time.
Tuesday October 10th at 12:00pm

Why Do I need to Book Through HTG?
The event expenses such as the convention center, shipping of equipment, officials, staff, and tournament coordinators who manage the event all roll up into the team registration fee. The participants renting hotel rooms within the group block all count towards lowering the cost of producing the event, especially related to the cost of the convention center. Organizations like the OVA need to show as many room nights as possible in their block which keeps costs lower and allows the Association to tap into tourism funding, all of which in turn help keep team registration entry fees as low as possible. Hotel contracts have provisions to provide the best rates possible based on a specific volume but the hotels need to see more guest rooms utilized for this all to work.
The OVA strives to prove its size and value for every event and takes its historical data to negotiate lower overall costs at the convention center and hotels. The OVA signs contracts for each event that specifies attendance and the number of hotel rooms needed for participants. This, in turn, is used to drive costs down for everyone and allows the OVA to access major event funding grants from Tourism Boards. If we don't have these "heads in beds" stats, these events are not possible to deliver due to cost restrictions.
Having a good history of “heads in beds” also helps to negotiate items such as complimentary or reduced parking, breakfast specials, and complimentary rooms to help house the staff and officials that support the event.
In the long run, the best way to keep your costs lower as a club director or a parent is to support the organization running the tournament. Is it a perfect situation – no it is not. But the OVA is committed to providing the best overall experience for participating athletes and their parents.
After the hotel has been confirmed, teams will be able to access their hotel booking through the “login directly” link attached to the Hotel Confirmation email. This will bring them to their own personal team “Dashboard” with all hotel information and rooming list access. Team Managers will also see the “Book Another Team” button within the dashboard
Teams will receive another email with the “Rooming List Entry Link” that can be forwarded to any/all team members/parents to book and manage their individual room.
All travelling teams (125kms+/one way) are required to book hotel rooms through Hudson Travel Group (HTG Sports) to be eligible to play in the EY Centre or Niagara Falls Convention Centre 2-day tournaments. This policy is used to assist in actualizing the room night requirements for the OVA to receive discounted facility rentals as well as obtain grants through host cities to be able to afford large facility rentals. Without Stay to Play, the OVA would not be able to obtain rentals for large facilities across Ontario.
