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.

  • A Lifetime Member who is currently registered and paid to play full time in a league may spare in any league any number of times.
  • An Annual Member who is actively curling in one league may spare in any other league five (5) times. After five games sparing the curler must decide on what is most cost-effective for him/her; purchase spare tickets, become a fifth player, or join the team and play regularly.
  • A spare who is not an active member (either Lifetime or Annual) and who does not curl regularly, may purchase tickets at the office for $50.00 plus GST for five games. The tickets are turned into the skip or the office when sparing. After the fifth time, the curler should decide what is most cost effective for him/her: become a fifth player on a team, join a team and play every game, or purchase more spare tickets.
  • At least two members of the original team must be playing. The spare can play any position except skip. If the skip is absent, the team members must play up; i.e. the third moves to skip, second to third’s spot and the spare plays lead.
  • Check with your League Coordinator for any specific league rules.

Tips to Keep Up the Pace of Play

  • 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!
