Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Covid-19 protocols 2022

Curling Alberta is allowing clubs to start the season without any COVID-19 restrictions. Let's keep it that way!

General Info. I'm new to cold lake and curling. I would like to get into curling but dont really know when it starts and all that.

Yay, we love new curlers!
Keep an eye on the home page: we publish events on the calendar (e.g. registration dates); and announcements on the news section (e.g. free curling clinics).
Schedules and standings are published on the respective league page.
Fees are outlined on the Membership tab.

League and Spare. Hi, I'm looking to join the men's league, either as a spare or full time. I would also be interested in sparing for the mixed league.

You can join one or more leagues, and spare in one or more leagues. See "Membership" tab for leagues & fees. You can register online, or in-person (see calendar & news for seasonal dates)

Novice. Hello, I was wondering if you have teams with beginners. I have never curled before. Thanx so much.

We love new members, regardless of age or experience. My father still curls in his 90s, my 20s kids just started... There are Curling Clinics at the start of every season.
We try to set up novices with experienced players. We also have teams of only novices. Invariably, when an opponent realizes you are a novice, they are willing to coach you throughout the game... Hang in there!

Contacts. HI I'm the director of website and communications for our club and would like to send you posters for our bonspiels this winter. Who can I send them to?

Check out our executives list. Can't go wrong connecting with one of them.

Bonspiel. I haven't been in a bonspiel before and I'm wondering what will be the minimum and maximum number of games we will play.

The number of guaranteed games is determined by the number of events. So a 3 event bonspiel (A,B,C events) would mean a minimum of 3 games if you lose every game.
The maximum number of games is determined by the total number of teams in the bonspiel. So a 32 team bonspiel would mean a maximum of 5 games if you keep winning.

Rent Ice/Room/Lounge. I was wondering if one is able to rent a sheet or two during the week timings around 1200-1600hrs. If so, what are the costs associated with it?

Renting Ice, Meeting Rooms, Lounge, or banquets is done through the general office. See the home page, or contacts list.

Spares List. Hi there, I'm interested in signing up to be a spare for the womens league. How much is it and do you have any details on being a spare? Thanks

Welcome! We're always looking for new members.
To join one or more spares lists (or leagues), sign-up using "Membership / Registration - Individual" or attend a Registration & Payment date (see calendar events or news).
Fees are outlined on the "Membership" page.
As a spare, you will be contacted by a team who is missing a player for one or more games.

Bonspeils. Where can I go to see a list of bonspiel dates?

Bonspeils. Check our "Links" tab, General - Links includes one to Curling Alberta, who maintain a list of bonspeils and events that clubs submit to them.

Seniors. Hi, My aunt is interested in joining the seniors league-is registration still available (if so, where can it be done) or is it drop in only? Also, what are the fees for seniors-is it the Club Fee or drop in fee?

Seniors. The Seniors League is a Drop-In format, no registration required - check out the Seniors League - Seniors Home Page.
The only cost is the drop-in fee; no membership required. Members are also welcome, of course, for the same drop-in fee.

Can you please sign me up for the next beginner curling clinic? Thanks,

Learn to Curl clinics. There is no advance sign-up required. Just show up on the first of the two-part clinic.
We usually have a couple two-part clinics - one around Registration night, and another close to the beginning of league curling.
Keep an eye on the home page, "Upcoming Events" and/or the "Calendar".

Covid-19 protocols 2021

Are masks mandatory? Only in the lobby; on the ice it's requested:

Do we have to sign each night: Yes. In addition to the one-time DofC, RWI, and VSMC, there will be a self-assessment you need to conduct and then sign the log.
