    Sunday Afternoon Fall League

    We are pleased to announce a 8 week Sunday Afternoon Fall League. To participate, you must be a paid member of the Broadmoor Curling Club.  You may enter as an individual, couple or team.  The league co-ordinator will form teams from individual and couple entries.  Newer curlers will be placed with experienced curlers.   If you form your own team of 5 players you may register as an Individual-5 Player Team. 

    Dates:  28 Sept, 5, 19, 26 Oct, 2, 9, 16, 23 Nov. There will be an end of league party on the last night of curling.  Prizes for the league will be distributed immediately following the last game.  

    Times: 3:30PM to 6:00 PM 

    Cost: $190 per person for 8 weeks of curling, $160 for youth. If you form your own team of 5 players it reduces the per person price to $160.

    Equipment: All equipment is provided

    Spares: If you are unable to curl on any night we will have a spares list and it will be your responsibility to let your skip/team captain know, which night you can't attend and they will obtain a spare from the list. If you are unable to commit to 6 weeks but would like to curl a few nights we need spares.  If you are interested in sparing for this league please register on the website.  Spares pay $30.00 at the arena on nights they spare.

    Other Information: Since this league is set up on a Sunday afternoon, there are events at the ice rink booked after us. For this reason, everyone needs to be very proactive in getting to the ice rink on time and helping set up. We CANNOT go over our time allotment for this league.

    If you have any questions on the league contact league@coloradocurling.org
