The Day Ladies is a very social league comprised of all levels of curlers from beginners to experienced. No matter what your level of expertise we welcome you to join us. Those with little or no experience will be mentored by their teammates. We want everyone to feel comfortable both on and off the ice.
We curl on Tuesday and/or Thursday mornings at 9:30 am. We do have specific teams for the Fall Draw and different teams for the Winter Draw.
The League commences the curling season, prior to the first day of curling with an Opening Dinner, held at the curling club. This is usually the week before we get out on the ice and is designed as a social event to meet with our curling ladies and get to know new members. Following this dinner the Skips for the Fall Draw will meet to draw their teams. As soon after as possible the curlers will be notified as to which team they are on and what position they will be playing.
We do have set teams for the draws and all players are expected to be present for each game. If they are unable to be present, it is their responsibility to find a spare from the List of Spares provide with contact numbers. There are usually enough spares for each position to fill this need. BONSPIELS Our League has 3 organized bonspiels throughout the year. These are “Fun” events, and although there are prizes, there is no pressure whatsoever. They are usually tag draws so you do not know which team you will be on till you get there. The surprise of seeking out your team over refreshments prior to the game is part of the fun.
