Keep in mind:

  • Bring sport shoes with clean soles. Street shoes that have been worn to the club are not permitted on the ice. Curling ice needs to remain very clean in order for the rocks to react appropriately.

  • Wear flexible pants (track pants, yoga pants, sports pants, etc.), a warm long sleeve shirt and a light jacket or sweater over.

  • A lock to keep your valuables (e.g. wallet, keys) in a locker.

  • Money if you want to buy a snack or beverage.

  • Bring your student card.

Rideau Curling Club Rules: Something as tiny as a hair on the ice can ruin your shot, so keep the ice clean. A boot cleaner is located at the entrance, as are sticky pads. Please use both before stepping on the ice. The Club provides brooms for sweeping/sliding. Please return them in the condition you found them.
