NOTICE: Due to current COVID-19 protocols we are temporarily suspending rental of ice and the lounge. We will accept tentative reservations for the space, but subject to change and/or cancellation dependent on current restrictions. Please contact the office directly if this may be of interest to you and we will determine if accommodations can be made.
Thanks in advance for your understanding.
Instruction is mandatory for beginner groups, or anyone not a member of the VCC.
So, what do you need to go curling?? Not much, frankly: what you really need are a pair of clean rubber soled athletic shoes that have not been worn outside.
You can appreciate that we can’t allow dirty shoes onto the ice as it renders it useless for our sport. You’ve heard of rocks “picking”? That’s what happens when a piece of 40 pound granite meets what would otherwise be a rather innocuous speck of dirt on the ice. Not cool.
We also recommend that participants wear stretchy pants and bring layers of clothing for warmth in our arena. We will provide grippers and sliders for each participant’s shoes plus brooms for sweeping. Unless you have your own, in which case – great!
Please contact the office for full details on ice rentals requiring instructors – we want to ensure you have everything you need!
