It is REQUIRED that you check in with the office or pro-shop staff before going onto the ice surface. There may be a rental booking for a group that could impact available sheets.
Please note: Practice ice is not available during special events or bonspiels, and will be pre-empted in the event of ice rentals for school or corporate groups. The Office and/or the Ice Tech staff reserve the right to restrict practice ice for any reason.
Should you require guaranteed ice time or specific playing conditions, please consider paying for a rental sheet to meet your needs.
The Victoria Curling Club recognizes the need for high-performance curlers to have consistent, high-quality ice to practice on. We are reserving Sheets 7 and 8 on Saturday from 12pm - 3pm, and Sunday from 1pm - 4pm, for team practice/play on a prepared ice surface. The cost is $20 for a one hour block of time, which is refundable to VCC members upon providing proof of Playdown registration, or to those who are preparing for a Provincial or National championship.
Due to the high number of teams playing out of the VCC, we are unable to guarantee ice in excess of 1 hour, however teams may be able to take advantage of empty blocks, or the regular "drop in" practice sheets.
To reserve time on these sheets, please contact Paul, Deb, or Cody.
Teams or players requiring time outside of these parameters will be able to book sheets of ice at our regular rental rates based on availability.
