Yes! You can make arrangements for some one-on-one time with an experienced curler to see what it’s all about. Our club will also be partnering with the Summerland Parks and Rec. Dept. to run a Learn to Curl course the first three Saturdays of our season.
Yes! One of the greatest steps forward in the game of curling was the invention of the “Stick.” The stick eliminates the need for sliding as you stand and walk to deliver your stones. The stick has kept curlers in the game well into their 80s and 90s as well as those with knee and hip issues. We have many curlers younger and older who use the stick at our club. In fact, we have an entire mixed league for those who use the stick.
Yes! In partnership with the Summerland Parks and Rec. Dept we will be running a, Learn to Curl course over the first three Saturdays of the season. This is a great way to learn the basics of the game with others who are in the same boat as you.
Yes! You can put your name on the Spare List. The Spare List is a group of people who are willing to sub in for a team when they are shorthanded. Another option is to be part of a 5-player team, where each week one of the players does not curl. Usually, the players rotate sitting out or work out a schedule to accommodate all 5 members.

Yes! Curlers can sign up for any league they want and play regularly until they are ready to go south. Our policy is that you must sign up for the entire year and we refund any unused portion of your league fees if you decide to go south after Christmas.
Absolutely! Curling is considered to be a very social game. Players mingle and kibitz in the lobby before the match begins. There is plenty of interaction between players on the ice during the game and after the game you can go up to the lounge and share a beverage with your teammates and opposition players. How Canadian is that!
Players arrive at the curling rink prior to the game and mingle and socialize while getting ready for the game. Before the first rock is thrown in a match a coin is flipped to decide who goes first and players shake hands and wish each other a good game. The game is then played usually taking about two hours. During the game, teams use the honor system to police themselves if there are any accidental rule infractions. When the game is over the teams shake hands once again thanking each other for the match. Players then remove their gear and head to the lounge where you sit with your opposition and share a beverage and conversation. In our estimation this makes curling unique among sports and why so many people love the game.
