- Daytime Women
- Evening Women
The Day Women’s section of the Leaside Curling Club welcomes women of all ages and skill levels to join us in our social and competitive leagues. Our section is the largest day women’s section in the GTA and that allows us to provide curling at a variety of competitive levels. Whether you are new to the sport or experienced, we offer something to meet your needs. Our variety of leagues allow curlers to play up to four times a week on a regular basis. If you don’t want to commit to more than one day, you can sign up to spare on the other days to get occasional extra days of play.
Our individual entry leagues provide a relaxed and fun environment where curlers will play on a number of different teams during the season.
Our team entry league allows curlers to play together all season against other teams of similar skill level based on performance (win/loss record) as the season progresses.
We also offer new curler and refresher clinics, and internal bonspiel events to help you develop your skills and experience the fun, camaraderie and competitive nature of the sport.
A brief description of each league is provided below,
1. Individual Entry Leagues
Monday afternoon - Play begins at 12:55 pm and ends no later than 3:10 pm.
Tuesday morning - Play begins at 9:45 am and ends no later than noon.
Tuesday afternoon - Play begins at 12:55 pm and ends no later than 3:10 pm.
Curlers are placed on teams based on their desired position. You may be asked to play a different position as the number of entries requires. Every effort is made to balance teams.
There are 3 draws over the course of the season. You will be placed on a different team each draw. Prizes are awarded to the top teams each draw.
When you are not able to play, it is your responsibility to inform the Spare Coordinator who will find a replacement to play in your absence. Requesting spares is done online.
2. Thursday Team Entry League
This is a league where you play with the same team all season. Games are played at two draw times and play will alternate from week to week:
Morning games begin at 9:45 am and end no later than noon.
Afternoon games begin at 12:55 pm and end no later than 3:10 pm.
Teams are divided into flights and placement is based on their performance in the previous draw. There are a number of round robin draws over the course of the season. Teams move between flights at the end of each draw based on their round robin performance. The number of flights and draws depends on the number of teams entered. New teams are placed in the bottom flight to start the season.
Curlers usually enter as a team. Teams require a minimum of four members (5 person teams are allowed).
New to the league, looking for new players or looking for a new team? If you have less than four members, the league conveners will help you find appropriate team members (teams require 3 members to start the season). If you are looking to join a team, the league conveners will attempt to place you on a team. Placement on a team is not guaranteed.
When not able to play, it is your responsibility to inform your skip and to find a spare to play in your absence.
The Women’s Evening Section is open to female curlers of all skill levels. Its mission is to provide a balance of competition, skill development and social camaraderie for all members. The Section accommodates up to 32 teams and curls on Wednesday evenings, with game start-time alternating between 6:45 p.m. and 9:00 p.m.
Section registration is by team entry. Subject to available openings, new members are welcome to join, either by creating their own teams, finding a spot on an existing team (there is a "find a player/find a team" forum available in the member-only portion of the website), or by registering as an individual and being assigned to a suitable position on an incomplete team. This would also apply for a returning member registering as an individual.
The roster of teams will be allocated to flights so that teams at similar skill levels will play against each other. Based on the results of each draw, teams will be moved as necessary to another flight for the next draw.
