Spare Rules

The intent of the Spare Rule is to ensure that no curler’s play is being subsidized by the majority of curlers.
All appropriate fees must have been paid for the current season.

  • All spares must be a member of GEWC and have paid their CurlBC/CC fees.
  • Member who is actively curling in one league may spare in any other league.
  • Spares must sign a health declaration form and sign in for Contact Tracing.
  • Check with your League Coordinator for any specific league rules regarding spares and positions they can or cannot play.

Tips to Keep Up the Pace of Play

Note – due to Covid the below is different, please discuss with your league coordinator or club management for details.

  • Arrive 15 minutes before game time to change, do your dynamic stretching and practise slides.
  • Be on the ice five minutes before game time to shake hands, determine who has last rock.
  • While the opposition’s rock is in motion, the next shooter should be cleaning his/her rocks and getting ready to shoot.
  • After an end: Only the second and third should push the rocks to the boards, the lead grabs his/her numbered stone and gets ready to shoot.
  • Do not sort the rocks — simply push them to the corner, and everyone grabs his/her own numbered rocks when it’s his/her time to shoot. Don’t waste time sorting rocks in sequential order.
  • Only the skip and third should be discussing strategy. Every shot should not need to be discussed.
  • The buzzer will go near the end of a game. That is the signal to finish the end you’re on and complete one more.
  • Enjoy your game, visit with your friends, and keep in mind that you want to complete 8 ends which is not difficult if the pace is maintained. Enjoy!
