Curl BC Affiliation fees are calculated based on the number of individuals who are regular curlers at the curling centre, using a three-year rolling average or the previous season’s reported members, whichever is lowest. Curling centres are charged at a rate of $15 per person, which includes Personal Accident Insurance for each individual, or $14 per person if the facility opts out of the Personal Accident Insurance program. Curling centres are charged $8 per individual for introductory curlers.
Affiliation fees are due annually on December 1. A monthly 2% late penalty will be assessed against facilities that pay after December 1.
Curling facilities may request an audit of your participation numbers if your membership drops by more than 20%. A written audit request and a minimum of 50% of fees must be received by Curl BC by November 15.
To request an audit of your curling centre’s participation numbers, contact Curl BC at email@example.com. Audit requests must be made in writing.
Definition of types of curlers:
Regular Curlers: Anyone who curls in a regularly scheduled league at an affiliated curling centre, whether that league is organized by the curling centre or by another outside group (commercial league, rental league, Masters league, etc.) must be included on the list of Regular Curlers. This also includes participants in provincial playdowns who may or may not play in regularly scheduled league but who are fully paid members, representing your facility at competitions. Curling centres pay affiliation fees to Curl BC based on $15 (or $14 if opting out of Personal Accident Insurance coverage) per Regular Curler registered at their centre.
Spare Curlers: Anyone who curls intermittently, but more than three (3) times in a curling season, must be included on the list of “Regular Curlers” and included in a centre’s affiliation count.
Drop-In Curlers: Anyone who curls three (3) or fewer times in a curling season does not need to be included on the list of “Regular Curlers” and will not be included in affiliation count. However, curlers in this category can receive personal accident insurance if their curling centre pays an additional $1 for all drop-in curlers at the centre and includes their full name on the “Drop-In List” provided to Curl BC for reporting purposes. If personal accident insurance is not needed for the drop-in curlers, the facility will not be invoiced for the drop-in curlers.
Introductory curlers: Anyone who participates in an introductory or novice league that lasts eight (8) weeks or less.
