Join us for a fun SHORTS league on Sunday nights, and enjoy a curling tradition called "broomstacking" in the bar each night! Limited to 8 teams, we will take a waitlist once we are full, and if it's possible to expand the league, we will do our best to get everyone in.
Individuals are welcome. We know you might not have an established team yet, so please sign up as an individual and we will place you on a team with a range of skill levels. Joining a league is the best way to improve your curling game!
This is a beginner's league - anyone can sign up, but there is a maximum of two experienced players per team. You could also consider our open features league at 6:15pm, which has no team restrictions. (You can sign up for both leagues if you want!).
Due to the expected high demand for this league, all players must register individually. This helps us ensure that membership dues are current and that Platinum members can make the most of their early signup benefit.
Registrations will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. Incomplete teams will be paired with free agents as needed. Payment is required to hold your spot.
There are a few rules we need to enforce to make the sign up process fair for everyone. Help us make the process go smoothly by reading the rules below:
- Members must be in good standing in order to register.
- Payment must be received in full in order to hold your spot. Only online payments are accepted, and payment must be made at the time of registration.
- Teams that don't submit a full roster at the time of registration may have a free agent assigned to their team.
Cancellation/Refund Policy (Updated/New!):
- Requests to withdraw from a league with 8+ days notice prior to start of league will be eligible for a full refund, and must be received in writing or via email. There will be NO refund for any cancellations within 7 days of the first night of league.
- Payment is required at the time of booking in order to secure your spot. Failure to pay prior to 7 days before the event may result in forfeiture of your registration to someone else on the waitlist.
- Leagues that require membership will include all guests of members. Memberships may be completed online prior to or during the registration process, and must be in good standing in order to play. Failure to pay membership dues prior to the start of a league may result in forfeiture of games, suspension from league play, or other penalties.
We require that participants under the age of 12 provide their own helmets, which must be worn at all times when on the ice. 12+ helmets are recommended, but it is ultimately up to parental discretion. All minors will require parental or guardian consent at the first night of league.
Five Rock Free Guard Rule
Reflecting USA Curling and the World Curling Federation's recent rule change, this league will be subject to the 5-rock Free Guard Zone. No opponents' rocks may be eliminated from the Free Guard Zone (the area between the hog line and the tee line, excluding the house) until after 5 rocks have been delivered.
