WINTER LEAGUES (2019)
Winter Registration is underway!
Our Winter Session runs slightly longer than Fall (e.g., about 10 weeks long), starting in January and ending in March -- for most leagues. Note that new players are welcome in all of our leagues. Our Rookie ("Yager") League is primarly for beginners (i.e., rookies & novices) and runs a bit shorter in terms of on-ice time and duration; i.e., 5-6 weeks competitively. Times are subject to change, though usually not by much (e.g., half hour) if they do. Detailed descriptions for each can be found further below on this page...
- Beginners – Sunday Yager League [3-5:15pm] - Jan.-Feb., again in March'19!
- Families – Saturday Family League [5-6:45pm] - starting in early March'19!

Cost to play as a Rookie (whether first time players or returning players w/<1 year of experience) is detailed on our Membership page. Juniors may play Sunday afternoons or Wednesdays: cost is $50 ea. for children of members (or $75 ea. if parent is non-member).
* Two (2) draws may be needed based on demand -- i.e., one earlier and one later (e.g., 5:30 and 8pm).

...but be sure to read the league descriptions (below) first!...
Leagues will be held in "The Zoo" at Wings Event Center! All leauges are subject to change based on number of teams per league. Please look at the descriptions below to determine which leagues will suit you, ask questions of our league managers, and then sign up for CURLING!
Most of our leagues are scheduled to run the length of one 'session' ...such as our WINTER Session usually begins in early January and will run until the end of the season, usually until late March. Also, our FALL Session which usually begins in late-September or early-October, and will run until about mid-December. Each league has a designated time on the ice and a day or night of the week to play. Some adjustments to start times can be anticipated from week to week (e.g., depending on ice prep.) and, for holidays and other times of the year, some leagues may also need to anticipate having "bye weeks".
If you want to find out which days/weeks you might have 'off' for certain leagues, you can check our league calendar but also please verify playable vs. bye dates with league managers of the leagues you want to play in (see email links in descriptions below). Also, please note that early registration discounts will vary depending on which Membership Level you choose. For most memberships the early-reg. discount is $50 off, with the exception of our Rookie registration which is $25 off.
Below is a complete list of leagues...
Saturday Family League - [Dates & Times: TBD] – March 2019
This league is a planned instructional league and is a great way to introduce yourself (and/or your teenage kids) to the great sport of curling! Kids starting at age 12 (with exceptions) and up to 17 can join this intro-to-curling league specifically designed for youth & new adult members to learn, play, and have fun! Our experienced club curlers will work with you (and your kids) in groups and individually to teach you the basics of the game, game etiquette and scoring. They will also help you with your sweeping, deliveries, and shot selection. All you have to do is try to make your shots! The games will consist of new adult members on some sheets and and youth (including kids of new adult members) on separate-but-nearby sheets. It is going to be a lot of fun for the whole family! If you have any questions about this new and exciting league, please contact Jack.
Sunday Sandlot League - 6:00 PM - THIS LEAGUE IS NOW FULL!
Welcome to Sunday Night curling! This is an OPEN league so anyone can join, but it will be made up of mostly intermediate players (more than 3 years of experience) but we also gladly accommodate rookies and more experienced players that want to mix-in onto other teams (e.g., as "free agents"). If you're looking for a more introductory league (for teams with 0-3 yrs. experience), see Yager League; below. The Sandlot league will run for about 8 weeks on Sundays (following the Yager League). A complete schedule will be posted on the club's calendar. Sign up as a full team, with a friend or as an individual (we’ll find a team for you if you need). Questions? ...contact Lauren.
SHOTS & ROCKS
Friday Shots and Rocks League 7-9 pm
This is the Friday Shots and Rocks League! Teams may be made up of any combination of male and female players. Entries are normally made by full teams. However, if you are interested in playing in this league and don't yet have a team, we will be happy to find you a team that is seeking an extra player. This league is a combination of new and experienced curlers. Questions about this league should be directed to Trevor.
This is an ideal league for new curlers, with an emphasis on getting to know people and playing (semi-competitive)! The league has a wide range of skill levels, beginners to experienced players, and is a great opportunity for new curlers to learn the game or for more experienced players to de-stress with a fun game of curling. Players are grouped based on experience and then randomly selected on teams. New teams are re-drawn every 3 to 4 weeks, giving players the opportunity to play and socialize with many different members during the season. Individual points accumulated through the season determine end of season awards. Questions?...contact Will.
Mondays [6:30-8:30 PM] – Sept. thru March - THIS LEAGUE IS NOW FULL!
Our Schizler League is our most competitive league and is open to all club members. We play on Monday night ...all year-long / Fall and Winter sessions! These Monday nights are a lot of fun and pretty competitive too! Many teams will be pre-assembled by individuals who have curled in this league before, but even if you're not that expereienced and this is the only night that works for you, let us know and we'll try to find a good team for you! Note that, because of the extended/year-long season for this league, you must sign up at the club's Silver Membership level or higher. For additional information send an email to Colby or Marcus.
Sunday Yager League [arrive 3pm ~ 3:30-5:15pm] – Jan. thru Feb., and again in March!
If you have never curled before or maybe just a Learn to Curl, Yager a great league for new curlers! This league is for people that are just starting out and have never curled in one of our full leagues before, as well as for other beginner-level players. There will be experienced curlers on hand to work with you and help teach you the game while you play. Depending on the mix of registrants and their experience, we may end up with two divisions or just one. Sign-up as a single player or with a friend, or up to three (3) people on a team for Jan.-Feb. Note: no team registrations in March! If registration numbers are low, we may end up playing doubles or doing something slightly different than normal 4-player teams so that we can have more teams (opponents to play). Regardless, we'll have FUN! Brand new players and other players with no more than one year of experience have a separate sign-up page (here). If you have not curled in a league before, registrants are encouraged (though not required) to attend at least one L2C session (here). For first-time returning players from our previous season, watch for announcements about our pre-season dates to help you get back into it! If you have any questions about this league, please contact John.
