2017-2018 League Information
Winter League 2017-2018
Winter league will begin Saturday, November 4th at 9pm, and last throughout the winter until late March. You will be curling at least 8 games, mostly on Saturday nights either at 9pm or 10:30 pm. Those 8 games you will play will occur over a 14 to 19 session schedule depending on how many teams we end up with. There may be a few sessions scheduled on Saturday morning depending on the size of the league. We are hoping to grow from 30 to 36 teams this year across the 2 leagues, competitive and recreational.
We won’t have to increase league dues this year, so the 8-game cost is $420 for the entire team. Most of that money goes to renting ice, although some is used to purchased equipment.
We are also able to reduce the club dues slightly to an even $70 to cover insurance, membership in USA Curling and other fees. Members are still able to receive a $25 refund for 4 hours of documented volunteer time (be sure to get a board member’s signoff on your time. Those completing the service can get the rebate, or if you do not want the rebate it will go into a special fund to help promote curling.
If you want to look at it as what will it cost me, so assuming a 4 person team playing a minimum of 8 games, the per-person cost this year will be $175 (you can get a $25 rebate once you complete club service to reduce your cost a bit). That’s down from the $192 per-person in 2014-2015. Team registration is $420, plus each curler will also register as a member for $70. You can also register as an individual for $176, and we will assist you in finding a team. If you have someone that wants to sponsor your team, let them know that we are a 501 C (3) non-profit and that sponsor fee will be tax deductible.
We are also planning on hosting an instructional league for new curlers that desire more instruction. Cost for that will be $70 a person for 3 sessions of curling.
League Fee: This year we are asking for $420.00 per team to cover ice time. Each member of your team must also be a Club member and that is $70 per person to cover Missoula Curling Club membership and insurance premiums.
