ODSA Sponsorship Policies

The ODSA aims to promote squash in the Ottawa area. To do this it will use its available
finances to subsidize various squash activities. (This support is based on a positive financial
situation of the ODSA. Should the ODSA’s financial situation deteriorate, sponsorship activities
would be suspended. The ODSA will not practice deficit financing.) The list below details
routine sponsorship activities that the ODSA will support.

Student Subsidies at Ottawa Area Open Tourneys

A student is defined as someone under the age of 26 years, who is a full time student.
The ODSA will provide a $5 subsidy for students participating in open tourneys as long
as the discounted price, showing a difference of $5 between an adult price and a student
price, is displayed on the tourney advertizing flyers. (subsidy to go to tournament
organizing committee/director)

The ODSA will provide an additional $5 subsidy if the tournament matches the second
ODSA $5. (This would give students a total of $15 in direct subsidies.) The discounted
price, showing a difference of $15 between an adult price and a student price, would need
to be displayed on the tourney advertizing flyers. (subsidy to go to tournament organizing
committee/director)

To obtain the subsidy, a listing of participating students indicating their name, age, name
of school and home club or city is to be submitted to the ODSA.

Subsidies for Ottawa Area Student Referees

A student is defined as someone under the age of 26 years, who is a full time student. The ODSA will offer a $20 subsidy to a student taking and passing a certification officiating clinic and becoming a Squash Canada Certified Official.
