The VCC strives to make curling affordable for people at differing stages of life out of respect for a diverse membership that includes youth, students, people entering the workforce, people established in their careers, and retirees.
To put the cost of curling in perspective, we calculated the average cost of curling per week and compared it with other popular entertainment and fitness activities. To read more about this and other topics to get you back into a curling frame of mind, check out the September edition of The Backline.
In an effort to move our processes online and go paperless, the Vancouver Curling Club (VCC) now offers a web-based registration and waiver form.
The VCC requires members fully complete this form to gather and maintain accurate information from our members. This info is entered into a database maintained by – and for the exclusive use of – the VCC, for membership service and insurance purposes. No personal identifiable information will be shared with any outside individuals / groups, except for insurance purposes.
