Women's Monday Afternoon Jitney

The Monday afternoon “ladies” league is a great opportunity for any female wanting to curl for the love of the game; to practice for higher (curling) aspirations, or to learn the game. Teams are made up jitney style (new teams made up every week) and members can choose the positions they wish or it can\may be determined by the conveners.
Once you have registered, the conveners will review the COVID-19 Monday afternoon rules of play with you.   We hope to see more out on Monday for a great way to enjoy a day!

Women's Wednesday Evening

   The Wednesday Night Ladies’ League is a fun evening of ladies coming together in a sisterhood of curling and fun! This is not a competitive league, but one where skilled and new curlers can play together and both learn how to curl and/or enhance their curling skills. There are two seasons, fall and winter, and teams are selected at the beginning of each season. It is a wonderful time of camaraderie and socialization.
 We have set aside March 13, 2021 for our annual Ladies’ Bonspiel organized and sponsored by the Wednesday Ladies.This Bonspiel has been open to curling clubs all around southern Ontario. This year, due to Covid-19, it will likely only be open to ACC Ladies. Should still be a fun day! If you are a lady ACC Member, consider signing up!
We welcome all women interested in playing or learning the game of curling in this 2020-2021 Curling Season.

Men's Monday Evening

Men's League - Monday Night.
  Welcome to the Monday Night Men’s League. A fun night of curling with a little bit of a competitive edge. The Monday night league teams are chosen by the Skips through a draft process which creates an opportunity for new and old members to meet different curlers from other leagues. We divide the year into two halves and pick new teams for each half. Last season, it was great that our league grew to 2 draws for the second half. Maybe this year we’ll have 2 draws all season!
Thanks to Don Leslie for running this league last season. He is taking a step back this season and so we are looking for a convenor for this league. Please contact Paul Hargreaves
([email protected]) if you might be willing to get involved or if you have any questions or suggestions for the league.   

 Open Daytime League- Jitney Format

  Tuesday and Thursday afternoons used to be just for seniors but we live in a “new-normal” where these leagues are open to everyone! Stick curlers always welcome!
Daytime Open curling is an ideal activity for those who do not like to drive at night or perhaps those who do shiftwork.
We use a jitney format so there are no set teams and no requirement to play every week. Due to Covid restrictions, players will have to pre- register (online or by phone) to fill the
32 available spots for each game time. Based on sign-up, teams will be made in advance and posted in the basement so you will learn as you hang your coat and change your shoes which
sheet and rocks are yours. Pre-game practice is encouraged for those ready to go early.
We are hoping to continue our annual tradition of a year-end bonspiel. This will be our 24 th year. More details to follow.
If fellowship and daytime curling are what you crave, please join us!

Tuesday Choose Your Own Team

  Tuesday Night CYO is the perfect mixture of fun and competition. It is great for sharpening your skills, whether you have curled for 1 year or 20 years. Teams can be comprised of men, women, juniors or can be mixed. If we have more than 12 teams this year, we will split into 2 divisions to keep each “bubble” under the 50 person limit. We will also break the season schedule at Christmas to provide flexibility to change up the bubbles or teams depending on circumstances.
We look forward to the return of previous teams and to welcoming new teams. If you do not have a team but wish to join the league, please contact me and I will try my best to connect you with other curlers like yourself.
We appreciate the efforts of Patti, Henry, Brian and Janet who organized this league for many years. Janet has agreed to help with the transition to new league convenor(s). Please let her know if you would be interested in getting involved.

Thursday Choose Your Own Team

 This is an unprecedented time for our curling club. I am not sure exactly how the league will look this year. BUT we are planning a season for teams looking for a little competition amongst friends. We will be following the guidelines from CurlON. Games 2 will be shorter. There will be social distancing. Heck you won’t have to sweep as much as last year… though some of us would say there are some who never swept anyways…
This league is designed for already established teams. Let me know if you have a team interested in having fun fellowship and a bit of exciting competition. BUT if you are looking to curl and do not have a team, email me and I will endeavor to find a spot for you. I am thinking we will likely have teams looking for fill-ins as we all personally decide if we are curling this year or not.
Looking forward to seeing you on Thursday nights!

Friday Night Mixed League

  Hey everyone! Hope you and your family are staying healthy and safe during this Covid-19 pandemic. It’s that time of year again. Time to stop planning you next “Staycation”, grab
your curling brooms and plan to come out to the Friday Night Mixed League.
The Friday Night Mixed League is a fun, non-competitive, social night of curling. Friday Nights are ideal for new curlers, so if you know anyone who wants to curl, convince them to give it a try. We’re all there to have a good time and help new curlers learn the game.
I hope you all had a chance to read over Susan Froud’s email regarding the Covid guidelines and return to play. The club has adopted CurlON’s guidelines for play ensuring social
distancing on the ice, and have developed protocols to ensure safety and social distancing in the lounge and locker room areas. If you didn’t receive the email, you can find it on the club’s website or send us an email (see below) and we will forward you a copy.
We look forward to seeing everyone on the ice!
Stay safe,
Anne & Greg

Juniors League

 These are challenging times! We don’t want to add stress to your families’ lives but maybe you can
consider curling a low-risk extracurricular activity for your children this winter?
The ACC has devised a system to allow curling this season that includes physical distancing and sanitization of equipment with rules around play, etc. that are designed to keep everyone as
safe as possible while still enjoying the great game of curling. With these guidelines, it will be
impossible to provide Junior Learn-to- Curl, as I am sure you can appreciate, so we will are not expecting to hold a program for new junior curlers. 
  For more mature/experienced juniors (age 12+) who are able to respect the guidelines, Sunday Afternoon Juniors will provide an opportunity to play games. Adult coaches will be available to provide technical suggestions and strategy guidance. With pre-registration for attendance (online or by phone), weekly games/teams would be made up in advance and posted upon arrival so
sheets and rocks can be pre-assigned.
Parents/guardians would be welcome as spectators during junior league play but would be expected to follow our guidelines and wear masks when in the lounge.
Looking forward to some fun curling games with the juniors on Sundays!

Stretches (off ice)
Skill development (on ice)
Coached mini game (2 ends)
Warming up & Strategy session (off ice)
Coached mini game - a regular game or ‘short games’ (as time permits)

The cost - $100.00 for the season.
Kids playing on adult (evening) leagues & Sunday - $ 200.00 per season

Come prepared for Winter Temperatures. Warm gloves, dress in layers to stay warm. Turtle neck sweaters, sweaters, warm socks. A hat. Hands and feet get cold. There is no wind, but it’s cold enough to keep the ice frozen. No jeans please.

We will be tracking attendance. Please inform the coaches if you know you will be away a given week. Our coaches are volunteers. To ensure the safety of the students, the number of students on a given day determine the number of volunteers required.

The OCA (Ontario Curling Association) has a series of badges to award junior curlers on their development. This year, our plan is to test the curlers on their skill and knowledge when both curler and coach feel they are competent. We hope this eliminates the stress of ‘classroom testing’. There is a short written exam (mainly true-false questions). At that point, badges will be awarded to recognize the accomplishments. Students will not be forced to partake in the badge testing if it is not within their comfort level. Testing is to reward accomplishment, not to discourage them from the sport.

OCA – formal (structured) competition for students 16 years and under, with participation based on coaches discretion for skill level. We will speak with parents and students regarding enrolment when the registration deadlines are approaching. Following strict OCA rules, involvement can lead to a provincial level competition. We will provide more details when registration deadlines are approaching.

Our more experienced Juniors earn high-school volunteer hours assisting with new curlers; guiding, demonstrating & correcting. A win win - students teaching students. Newer curlers look up to and admire their peers.
