Curling Fees & Club Information
The Williams Lake Curling Club will officially open for the year on Monday, October 4th, 2021. This is an “open” week for all players to come down and get in some practice before the leagues officially start on Tuesday, October 12th. All league fees will be paid on-line again this year, and should be done prior to the end of September so that league and club organizers can get the leagues set-up prior to their start on October 12th. Please visit our “Curling IO” page for registration details and directions. Please note – If you are having difficulty with Curling IO, and/or don’t have access to a computer, please see our Manager, Ken Hall, before the end of September.
We also ask that team Skips/Captains phone or email the club to register their team roster sometime during the month of September.
All weekday evening league fees, the Capital Improvement Fund fee, and lockers, are subject to a 5% GST, which is added upon registration.
Please note – The Affiliation Fee & the Capital Improvement fee are only paid once/person/year therefore when players are in more than one league they will only be charged the League Fee for second and subsequent leagues. Please see below for discounts if members sign up for multiple leagues.
Please note – The fees listed below are for teams with 4 players. If your team will have more than 4 players it is up to the Skip, with the help of our Manager, Ken Hall, to work out how much per person the fees will be. There are examples below to help with this.
Please note – Fees listed below have been adjusted for the length of games as well as for the number of games/year/league in an effort to have balanced fees across leagues.

Team Curling Fees Examples
If your team has fewer, or more than, 4 members then this section may help you calculate the fees for each of your team members. Team Fees only apply to teams that have less than 4, or more than 4, players. The example below is for a team of 6 players registered in one of the Tuesday – Thursday leagues. The team has determined that each of the players will pay an equal fee. The league fee ($341.25/person) is multiplied by 4 and then divided by 6. The affiliation fee ($20/person) is then added to this, as is the applicable GST taxes of 5%.
Team fee 4 x $341.25/6 = $1365.00/6 = $227.50
Add Affiliation Fee $227.50 + $20 = $247.50
GST/person $247.50 + 5% = $259.88
Add CurlBC Affiliation Fee $259.88 + $20
Total per person $279.88
While the example above is for a team that is equally sharing the team fee, it is up to the team’s discretion to determine who pays how much (examples: divide equally amongst players, prorate certain players to pay more/less due to their playing time, etc.) The important part for the club is that full payment of fees is recieved one week prior to the start of league play.
Teams with only 3 players are responsible for the full team fee of 4 players plus the Affiliation and Capital Improvement fees for each of the 3 players. Any player picked up to fill the 4th spot must be an affiliated player. If a permanent player is picked up after the season begins it is up to the team to work out any fee refunds and/or payments amongst themselves.
