Is there a waiver to sign? Are there any age limits? Can kids or teens curl?
All curlers are required to sign a waiver before going on the ice. Waivers are provided at the club. Alternatively, you can download the waivers from our website, have each of your attendees print one, and bring with you the day of your event. Curlers under 18 years of age must have a waiver signed by a parent or guardian before going on the ice. If a parent isn't coming to the event, they can download the waiver, sign it, and send it with the child.
