Accessing the Curling Ice

1. Preparation for Accessing the Curling Rink & Going On the Ice

  • Use a pair of clean curling shoes or other non-outdoor use shoes, preferably fit with good quality grips on both feet.
  • Use a clean curling broom.
  • Use the Boot Boy units and Sticky Mats located at the entry to the curling rink to clean your shoes.
  • Respect the rules of curling, fellow curlers and the SPFAS Staff maintaining the curling rink.
  • Stay off of each curling ice sheet until SPFAS Staff have completed their ice maintenance work.    
  • If you have forgotten to bring your personal curling broom, slider or gripper, use the curling equipment located in the curling rink. (Return this equipment after finishing your curling activity.)
  • Always be observant, aware and mindful of thrown rocks being in play, as well as those sweeping rocks.
  • Do not wear head phones, ear buds or ear muffs while in the curling rink.        
  • Do not consume food or beverages during on ice curling activities in the curling rink.
  • No alcohol consumption is permitted during on ice curling activities in the curling rink.    

2. Preserving Quality Curling Ice

  1.             Do not lay your body or place hands on the ice for any length of time.
  2.             Do not chip ice with curling broom or other items.
  3.             No spitting allowed.     
  4.             Do not remove curling rocks from the ice surface.
  5.             Do not drop rocks on to the ice surface.
  6.             Do not throw or run rocks over the hacks at the ends of each sheet.  
  7.             Move play along at a good steady pace.
  8.             Be aware of “end of game” advance notice given when the “last draw” bell rings.
  9.             No taunting, bullying or use of other abusive or foul language.

3. Supervision of Youth Curlers – Plan to have at least one adult (coach, manager or other volunteer) on the ice in the curling rink while youth curlers (under 18 years of age) are in the curling rink. SPFAS recommends that a preferred ratio of supervising adults to youth curlers would be to have one such adult on each sheet of curling ice used by the respective youth curlers.

4. Safekeeping of Personal Curling Equipment & Other Valuables – While involved in on ice curling activities, valuables may be stored in the lockers - bring your own lock.  Please place your shoes in a locker or cubby, and avoid leaving personal effects in the Concession Area or in the Lounge.
