League Rules

The Mission Statement of the Rexton Curling Club is to promote the game of curling and fellowship – to have fun while respecting the game and fellow curlers.

 

The Club will follow the rules of curling as approved by the Canadian Curling Association. However, to accommodate members who have family and work responsibilities but want to play the game, other rules / guidelines are required. Specific rules for each league are as follows:

 

Monday and Tuesday night leagues:

  • The Monday and Tuesday night leagues are fun leagues. They provide an opportunity for members to get active and encourage fellowship which the rules must promote. To this end, the following applies:

  • Please abide by the FAIR PLAY principle of the game. Therefore all games should be a minimum of 5 ends.

  • An 8-end curling game is scheduled to last 2 hours. We expect that each team play in a timely manner and that every effort be made to finish on time. To this end, each player should get in the habit of being ready to throw his/her rock as soon as the opponent has finished delivering his/her rock.

  • To maintain ice integrity, avoid leaving your hand or knee on the ice surface for an extended amount of time.

  • Spare:Each player is expected to find his/her own spare. A list of spare players can be found on the bulletin board. Spares can play any position.

  • Scoring:

      • 1 point per end; 2 points for win; max 3 points spread; 1 point each for tie; o points for blank.

      • Make sure your team is on the ice at the scheduled time. If for any reason a team cannot start on time the following will apply:

        • 1 end and 1 point will be awarded to the other team for every 15-minute delay. This team also loses the hammer. The game is considered forfeited after 30 minutes. A mutually agreed late start can void this rule.

        • Make-up games have to be scheduled within 1 week, and must be played within 3 weeks. Otherwise the team that could not make the initial date will get 0 points.

        • ALL GAMES MUST BE SCHEDULED BY THE CLUB MANAGER; YOU CAN CALL DON AT 523-9003.

Specific to the Junior Program are the following:

 

  • Please abide by the FAIR PLAY principle of the game.
  • To maintain ice integrity, avoid leaving your hand or knee on the ice surface for an extended amount of time.
  • Age:    13 years to 20 years of age
