- Five full weeks of instruction that cover the basics of delivery, sweeping, strategy, rules and ettiquette.
- The next week includes an exhibition game for all participants to get comfortable out on the ice.
- Following the instruction, the season runs for approx. 17 weeks. Points are awarded for wins, losses and ties.
- A three-week playoff will wrap-up the season to determine the League Champion, and its rep in the VCC Championships mid-April.
Teams can register up to five (5) people. Curling teams operate with four players any given week (it's up to the team to decide who plays each week). Groups (or individuals) with less than four members are grouped with other registrants to ensure a team of four players. The VCC maintains a wait list to fill any gaps, and for those looking to pick up games via the spare list once the season is underway.
Costs for the league (per person) are $280 + VCC Membership & Curl BC dues ($35) + VCC Capital Development Fund ($35) fees + tax. Membership includes CurlBC dues and insurance, along with access to Open Ice for practice when it is available and discounts in the Pro Shop, as well as on our clinics, lessons and pick-up leagues offered throughout the season.
