Teams compete throughout the curling season in a round-robin ladder format over 3 seven game series. Based on final league standings, a single knockout playoff tournament determines divisional winners and the overall league champions. Games are usually played on Thursday afternoons at 12.15 pm and 2.30 pm. If more than 32 teams register for the league, some games will be played on another afternoon.

There are 5 series per year of 6-8 games per series and each series lasts 4-5 weeks. The teams are formed by the league and changed every series. We strive to have you play with a large variety of curlers.

Games are 8 ends with a roll-off. Points are awarded for ends and points scored in the game and the roll-off portion. The top 2 teams from the winning and losing sides win a meat prize. For this each curler ante's up a few dollars per game. This pays for the meat prizes along with a Luncheon at Christmas and at season's end.

Wednesday Night Ladies

League: Wednesday Night Ladies
Participants: All levels of curlers
– women only
– sign up as a team or as an individual
When: Teams will rotate play between Wednesday 6:50pm and 9:05pm
Membership Required: Anytime, Intermediate or Student. 17 or older.

 

Our season starts off with a Drinks & Dips evening. This provides us with an opportunity to catch up on everyone's summer or go down onto the ice for some practise or to spend time meeting new members.

We have four different divisions comprising of beginners to seasoned curlers and everything in between. At the beginning of the season, teams are seeded according to their abilities and where they finished the season before.

Our league has three draws consisting of 7 games each during the curling season. The games alternate between a 6:50 pm game one week and a 9:05 pm game the next week.

The league is based on a points ladder system were teams are awarded points for wins, losses or ties. At the end of each draw the teams are reseeded based on the points they accumulated during the draw. It may sound complicated but we have a game co-ordinator who figures all this out for us!

We finish our curling season off with a single knock out playoff format. The last Wednesday of the curling season is for the WNL banquet.

Curling is a very social sport. It isn't about who wins or loses, it is about having fun with people on your team and the teams you curl against. Many teams have been together for years and the friendships that are created last beyond the curling club.

Weekend Mixed Ladder

League: Weekend Mixed Ladder
Participants: All levels of curlers
– sign up as a single, couple or as a team
When: Teams will rotate play between Friday (6:45pm and 9:05pm), Saturday (4:30pm, 6:45pm and 9:00pm) and the odd Sunday (5:00pm)
Membership Required: Anytime, Intermediate or Student. 17 or older.

 

At the beginning of the year teams are seeded according to their abilities and play in a points ladder system throughout. There are 3 draws of 7 games for each team in our 10 divisions (80 teams, Divisions A-J). Each game is scheduled to run for up to 2 hrs.

After each draw, teams are re-seeded according to their win, loss, tie record, and continue on to the next draw, culminating in the final weekend where we play for divisional bragging rights.

Mixed curling is a very social activity. Many of our members develop lasting friendships with teammates and opposing players alike. You may find some of our teams gathering together for dinner at local restaurants after the early Saturday game (4:30 finishing at 6:30).

We balance the schedule so that teams will rotate play between Friday (6:45pm and 9:05pm), Saturday (4:30pm, 6:45pm and 9:00pm) and the odd Sunday (5:00pm). We ask that each team delivers stones alternating between ladies and men to preserve a level of fair play.

New couples are always welcomed into the Mixed League, and will be matched with another couple in a suitable division based upon their experience. Full team entries are equally welcomed.

Monday Night Open

League: Monday Night Open
Participants: All levels of curlers
– sign up as an individual
When: Teams will rotate play between Monday 6:50pm and 9:05pm
Membership Required: Anytime, Intermediate or Student. 17 or older.

 

This less competitive, adult mixed league is for all skill levels. It offers curlers a chance to meet many other club members and to continue to develop their skills.

This league does not track wins and losses. The games are 8 ends and it is encouraged that teams play at least 6 ends. For all curlers, your best way to improve is to keep playing.

Teams are made up based on players’ chosen positions and although all attempts are made to balance the teams, requesting to play a position best suited to your ability helps.

Teams will be reorganized after 5 weeks; 4 weeks will be regular curling followed by a 5th fun night allowing a more recreational atmosphere, interesting challenges, and sometimes food!

Saturday Morning Open

League: Saturday Morning Open
Participants: All levels of curlers
– sign up as an individual
When: Saturday 9:00am
Membership Required: Anytime, Intermediate or Student. 17 or older.

 

Our Saturday Morning Open League is open to members of all skill levels. Sign up as an individual and identify which position(s) you wish to play.

There are 2 series of between 6 and 8 games. The league convenor builds the teams at the start of each series. Each game is scheduled to start at 9:00am and runs for up to 2 hours.

The winning team in each series will play against each other on the final day for the honor of having their names displayed on the league banner.

While we do track win/loss records for the games to determine the season’s winning team, this is a non-competitive league and we really want people to have fun. New curlers will gain experience through game play with our seasoned curlers.

Seasoned curlers will have the opportunity to hone their skills and to give back to the sport by assisting new curlers with their development.

Saturday morning curling is a very social activity. Many of our members develop lasting friendships with teammates and opposing players alike.

League: Little Rock Program (U12)
  All levels of curlers
- Ages 8-11
– sign up as an individual
When: Sunday 1:30-3:30
Membership Required: Little Rock

 

Curling is a fun sport for kids. It is an active sport and is very social. Our program is fully volunteer run so family participation is expected. There are volunteer opportunities both on and off the ice.

There are several levels programs for kids: Little Rock (age 8-11), U15 (age 12-14), U18 (age 15-17) & U21(age 18-20). All of our youth programs emphasize improvement through skills development. The objective is to introduce participants to the sport of curling in a safe, fun manner.

Little Rock

This exciting program teaches kids the fundamentals and skills needed to enjoy curling. The Little Rock curling program runs most Sunday afternoons. The program is divided into an instructional session and game each week. During the instructional period, participants work on skills development and building knowledge of the game. During the game portion, participants are assigned to a team where they have the opportunity to practice game situations.

Junior Program

Program: Junior Program
Participants: All levels of curlers
- Ages 12-14 (U15), 15-17 (U18), 18-20 (U21)
- Sign up as an individual
When: Sunday 12:00pm - 2:00pm
Membership Required: Junior Member

 

This recreational program runs most Sundays and is open to young people aged 12-20 years of age (as of July 1st). This program will consist of 30-45 minutes of fundamental, skill-focused instruction followed by a short 3 to 4 end practice game to reinforce the lessons learned and to practice their strategic thinking and communication skills.

There will be a 15-minute break between instruction and game play when curlers will return to the lounge to warm up and have a snack. Snacks will be available for purchase or they may prefer to bring their own. You don't have to be an experienced curler to participate in this program. We support curlers of all levels.

This program is 100% volunteer operated. Therefore, regardless of knowledge or curling experience, all parents and guardians are expected to participate. There are volunteer opportunities both on and off the ice. You will be provided with support from the convenors and experienced instructors.

Our program is based on the fundamental attributes that enable young people to grow into great teammates and citizens such as... teamwork, sportsmanship, focus, kindness, loyalty, trust, listening, hard work, great communication, fearlessness, positive attitude, support, and encouragement. Instructors and curlers are equally bound by these guidelines and are expected to practice them at all times during the program and while representing the Oakville Curling Club in any capacity outside the program.

In addition to creating a strong base of fundamental Curling skills, an equally important goal for this program is to build on positive energy that is so strong, it is contagious.

This program time is not for private team practice. Teams will be split up and given the opportunity to play with the other curlers in the program. Competitive teams who embrace the opportunity to learn outside their team environment will find that their skills will be enhanced because they will be presented with many unfamiliar opportunities and challenges that will prepare them for the unpredictable competition experiences they will face together. We can all learn from each other and the lessons we learn often come from surprising places.

This is the culture of our program. If you feel it fits your needs, we would love to have you join us!
