ORCC Credit Card Policy:

ORCC offers a variety of payment methods such as cheque, etransfer and credit card.   However, credit card transactions cost the club thousands of dollars every year.  In an effort to keep program pricing reasonable, we ask those participants who wish to pay by credit card to ensure you also pay the credit card convenience fee to help offset the costs to the club.  No convenience fee is charged for etransfers or cheque.


Please be aware of the ORCC Cancellation Policy:

  • Program cancellations will be issued a prorated refund calculated to one month from the receipt of the cancellation request and the withdrawal of the participant from the program.
  •  In the case of injury or illness, a medical certificate may be required.

**N.B. - “The ORCC reserves the right to refuse admission or cancel registrations in the programs at its discretion.”
