|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. Also, early registration discounts vary depending on which Membership Level you choose; $50 off for Silver & Gold Members and $100 off for our Platinum members.
Note that, when you become a club member (and unlike some clubs) we do not charge our members additional fees to play in the league or leagues you originally register to play in. 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...
BENEFIT DETAILS BY CATEGORY
PLATINUM: Unlimited! - $1,100 $900
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 $12 to 14 per night, depending on how many leagues you sign up for!
GOLD: Two Leagues - $800 $675
Play in two leagues for BOTH FALL & WINTER Sessions (or entry in leagues that run the full season) – 40 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). With early registration, this membership rate (most years) works out to be about $15 per night; i.e., $14-16, depending on which two leagues you join, and less than most bowling and softball leagues! :)
SILVER: One League - $500 $450
Play in one league for BOTH FALL & WINTER Sessions (or a league that runs the full year) – 20 nights of curling. You will be able to practice during the club’s preset practice times (at least once per week). You will also be a member of the USCA & GLCA. With early registration, this membership (most years) works out to be about $20 per night; i.e., $19-21, depending on which league you join, and less than what you'd spend per person for movie tickets w/concessions ;)
WINTER-only Leagues: One = $200, Two = $400
Play in one or two leagues for the WINTER Session – 10+ nights of curling per league. You will be able to practice during most of the club’s preset practice times and you will receive most, though not all, of the normal club member benefits. With early registration, this option works out to be about 25 to 30 dollars per night for those beginning to play in January :)
NEW CURLERS: In addition to early registration discounts noted above, you may ALSO qualify for a New Member Discount ($100 off) -- see details below under Payment Options! If you do not want to become a member yet... first, we think you should reconsider! ;) ...and, secondly (if you're sure you don't want to take avantage of all the club's events and other member benefits)... we do offer a non-member option that let's you play in an abbreviated league (i.e., Sunday afternoons). It is significantly less expensive but, again, it does not include all of the membership benefits listed on this page.
To sign-up for the Non-member abbreviated-league option, please visit our Rookies! page.
You also receive the following benefits when you join the Kalamazoo Curling Club:
