You may sign up for a Spare Only Membership. This allows you to sign up and play as a spare in games in any league in which you are eligible to play. The cost is $328.83 ($69 membership fee + $222 playing fee plus HST). If you sign up for a permanent position in any league, additional pro-rated fees will apply including applicable prize funds.

You can sign up for a Practice Membership. Individuals selecting a Practice Membership will be able to book practice ice in accordance with regular club guidelines. They will not be able to play or spare in any of our regular leagues. The cost for a practice membership is $184 + HST.

There is also an Adult Competitive Membership, which allows a curler to join a team representing Leaside CC in OCA competitions (note: curlers are responsible for ensuring the category of membership they have selected satisfies OCA requirements). The cost is $19.95. A competitive member does not have playing privileges at the club; refer to the club website for the complete competitive membership policy.

There is also a Competitive Youth Membership. The cost is $19.95. These requirements are identical as for the Adult Competitive Membership.

All returning or new members will be placed on a waiting list; determination and distribution of lockers to those on the waiting list will be made completed in September once we know how many lockers are available. Lockers must be emptied upon the season end in April. Please note that lockers will not be issued to someone who registers as a Spare or Practice member.

Refund Policy

After October 31st, a prorated refund of section fees and HST only (which excludes membership fees of $71.19 and prize fund fees) is available (at the Board’s discretion) if the member is unable to participate due to medical reasons or relocation. Please submit a written request to the Treasurer. A $25 administration fee will be deducted from the amount being refunded.

Spares

Players must be a paid playing member of LCC (neither a social member, practice, nor competitive member) in order to spare.

Sunday Open Rules

The Sunday Night Open League follows the Leaside Curling Club Rules and the O.C.A & Curling Canada rules except where they exist below as part of the Sunday Night Open League rules.

Every team will play every week of the playoff season.
At the end of the third draw but prior to the start of the playoffs, teams have been moved flight to flight as usual.
Playoffs are within each Flight (ie. Teams within Flight A will play Flight A teams only)

GAMES

All playoff games are 8 ends (or less, a team may concede at any point - please be considerate of the need for later games to start on time and of club staff who need to complete their jobs for the evening).

TIEBREAKER

If tied after 8 ends, a full extra end is played using the Odd end direction ie. away from the change rooms. If still tied, the tie is broken by a draw to the button using the Even end direction ie. towards the change rooms. Only the throwing team may sweep. Any player on the team may throw the draw to the button.

BELL RULE DOES NOT APPLY

This does not mean you can take your time playing your games. Please do your best to play quickly in all games out of respect for your opponents and club staff.

SPARES

At all times, teams are expected to observe the spirit of fair play when finding spares. - Teams must field at least 3 curlers, two of whom must be original team members. This is different from the Regular Season rule. Teams without a minimum of 2 regular players forfeit the game.

All Leaside Curling Club members are eligible to spare in the playoffs, including those already playing for another team. - If you are filling a front-end position with a spare, the spare must be someone who plays front-end in whatever league or section they generally play in (if they play in another section) or spare in. - When a spare is arranged to replace the regular Lead, Second or Vice, that spare may not play the Skip position (ie. neither throw 4th stones nor call the game). If the regular skip is absent, either a spare or any regular member of the team may play the Skip position.

POSTPONEMENTS

Postponement / rescheduling of a game is permitted in unique situations but only if a team of 3 cannot be fielded. In other words, if 2 team member can play, they must do so with a minimum of 1 spare (because a minimum of 3 players are required to play). - A postponement is only acceptable if both teams agree and can find makeup ice acceptable to the "non-offending" team before the next scheduled playoff game. The team requesting postponement is ultimately liable for the default, regardless of any agreement to reschedule. In other words, if for any reason the game is not made up in time, the team that originally requested the postponement defaults and the "non-offending" team receives the win.

OTHER EXCEPTIONS TO THE PLAYOFF RULES

Any exceptions to these rules are only permissible upon prior written (ie. email) approval of the league drawmaster.

Good Curling Everyone!

Playoff winner, each Flight: $120

AMENDMENTS

These rules may be amended at any time by the Section President.

DISPUTES

Notwithstanding the above, The Section Drawmaster is the final arbiter of all disputes. He/She reserves the right to change, add or grant exemptions from these rules as required and is necessary in the circumstances.
