MEMBERSHIP AND LEAGUE FEES FOR 2017-18 SEASON

At our 2017 Annual General Meeting we voted to revamp our membership structure, resulting in a low, one-time fee for new members, and an annual "maintenance fee" for returning members. This year, in conjunction with moving our registration process online through a pilot project with Curling Canada and Curl BC, the Victoria Curling Club is attempting to be as transparent as possible when it comes to the collection of fees that keep us operational.

The cost of curling in any of our leagues is directly related to the number of dates available to that league over the course of a season.

 

THE FOLLOWING FEES ARE PAYABLE ONCE PER YEAR:

Membership Fee (New Members): $25.00

Maintenance Fee (Returning Members): $35.00

Curl BC/Curling Canada Association Dues: $17.00

These fees apply only once per curler, regardless of the number of leagues played in. Previously, Curl BC and Curling Canada fees were "rolled in" to the league fees, and paid on each curler's behalf by the Victoria Curling Club.

NEW THIS YEAR

The Victoria Curling Club is attempting to make curling as easy and fun to join as it is to play. To that end, we are offering options when it comes to 5 person teams and sparing in our leagues. We ask our curlers to be aware that the revenue required to keep our facility open and running smoothly is almost entirely created from league and membership fees. We think this system is fair and equitable for everyone.

All VCC members registered for any league are allowed to spare in any other league free of charge. If they are not playing in another league, the curler will be charged the appropriate membership fee (or maintenance fee) and the Curl BC/Curling Canada association dues, which will then allow them to spare as a member for the season.

5 player teams are allowed. 4 players on the team must pay the regular league fees, while the 5th player must pay the appropriate membership fee (or maintenance fee) and the Curl BC/Curling Canada association dues if they have not already registered for another league at the VCC. Please note that the 5th player on teams are subject to individual league fundraising fees where applicable.

REFERRALS

The lifeblood of the Club is membership - and to that end, we want to encourage our existing members to bring new members into our leagues to enjoy everything that we have to offer! Every person who refers a new member (paid) will receive a $25 gift certificate (no limit) to the VCC Pro-Shop.

ONLINE REGISTRATION

We are one of approximately 60 clubs across Canada registered for the pilot project spearheaded by Curling Canada to bring club membership and registration online for this season. Behind the scenes, we are working to get our league fees and membership dues into the system so that it is as simple as possible to understand. There are still some bugs to be worked out, but we expect to have registration live and ready to go on Monday, August 28 - starting at 10am.

Rest assured we'll be giving more updates on the process as we get closer to launch.
