Types of Leagues
Our leagues a divided into 4 main types:
Choose Your Own (CYO)
In a Choose Your Own league, you select your own team and the positions everyone plays, and they remain the same for the entire season. You may also sign up as an individual or partial team, and the league convenor will help you find the remainder of your team.
In club curling, you sign up as an individual and will be assigned a position and a team by the league convenor. The exact rules vary by league, but your position will generally be based on your experience and the teams are generally selected by the skips using a lottery system and switched up a few times each season.
In Open Doubles curling, teams are comprised of two players of any gender. Unlike other leagues, these leagues play one game a month.
We run two youth leagues for children between the ages of 7-12 and 12-19. Qualified instructors will teach a short lesson each week for skills development, followed by a game where the children can practice their skills. Children up to 12 years of age play with special 'light' rocks, which are approximately half the weight of normal stones. Please note that these ages are approximate and we will move curlers to whichever program makes is the most fun and rewarding for them.
We run two regular youth programs - Little Rocks for ages 7-12 and Bantam/Junior for ages 12-19.
As their skills develop, we offer opportunities for Bantam/Junoir curlers to form regular teams and compete in events and leagues against other clubs. We also provide a gradual path to introduce our youth gradually into adult leagues when they are ready.
Youth may also play in adult leagues, and there is no specific age limit for this, but it is subject to approval to the league convenor on case-by-case basis and is largely determined by when they reach a skill level that they can comfortably compete within that league. Initially, youth pay their youth base membership fee of $80 or $95 and then an adult league fee of $100 for their first league while they are part of the youth program.
Once they move out of the youth leagues and become a young adult member (under 30), they pay a regular adult membership rate, but their first league is still discounted to the same $100. Members over 30 then pay the regular club rates.
