|The Kalamazoo Curling Club is open for anyone to enjoy the FUN, cordial and competitive sport of CURLING!...|
* Please note that Early Registration Discounts typically end in late September for Fall Registration (e.g., usually the third Monday in Sept.) and in late December for Winter Registration -- for exact dates please refer to the club calendar.
Note that WE DO NOT CHARGE ADDITIONAL FEES TO PLAY in Leagues! In addition to the membership benefits mentioned above, as well as others (listed below), your paid membership includes your payment for one or more Leagues to play in, depending on which Membership Level you choose...
PLATINUM - $1,000 ($1,100)
KEYS TO THE CLUB – You will get your own keycard for accessing the club with unlimited practice times, and can play in as many leagues as you want. In addition, you will be a member of the United States Curling Association (USCA) and Great Lakes Curling Association (GLCA). With early registration, this membership rate (most years) works out to be about $18 per night or even as low as $13, depending on how many leagues you sign up for!
GOLD - $850 ($900)
Two league nights for both fall and winter sessions (or entry in leagues that run the full season) – 34 to 37 nights of curling. You will also be able to practice during the club’s preset practice times (at least once per week). You will also automatically be a member of the USCA/GLCA (a $50 value). Note: for our winter session (only), Gold membership is the preferred option for playing in an unlimited number of leagues (i.e., starting in January). With early registration, this membership rate (most years) works out to be about $22 per night; i.e., $21-23, depending on which two leagues you join, and less than most bowling and softball leagues! :)
SILVER - $500 ($550)
One League night for both fall and winter sessions (or entry into a league that runs the full season) – 17 to 18 nights of curling. You will also be able to practice during the club’s preset practice times (at least once per week). This membership does not include membership into the USCA/GLCA. You can pay an additional $50 to be a member of those organizations. Note: for our winter session (only), Silver membership is the preferred option for playing in two concurrent leagues (i.e., starting in January). With early registration, this membership rate (most years) works out to be about $25 per night; i.e., $24-26, depending on which league you join, and less than what you'd spend per person for movie tickets w/concessions ;)
BRONZE - $275 ($325)
One session of curling (7 to 9 nights) – Can be either in our fall OR winter session. This membership may also include practice times at no cost (when space allows), and does not provide membership into the USCA/GLCA ($50 extra). With early registration, this membership rate (most seasons) works out to be about $26 per day/night; i.e., $25-28, depending on which league you join, and still way less than the cost of a lift ticket to go skiing or snowboarding! :)
Rookies - $100 ($125 after early registration period ends)
An abbreviated session of curling for beginners (i.e., Rookies w/<1 year of experience). Teenagers and other Junior players can qualify for an additional age-based discount (e.g., 50% off amount shown on payment form) when their parent or guardian also registers. This membership does not provide membership into the USCA/GLCA. With early registration and this exclusive membership rate, you're paying only $20 each afternoon or evening you play, and (in some sessions) we throw in extra playing time which reduces the cost to $17/day or even lower! Either way, this is an incredibly low cost to play considering the club provides all the equipment you need (including those pricey rocks!) and that great, dedicated ice you get to play on!
