Description of a Curling Rental: Your event starts off with 20 to 30 minutes of training by an experienced club member. Some of this is in the warm room but most is on ice. The training section is followed by an actual game.
Age and Numbers of Students: The minimum age is 11 years old. We are a four-sheet club and can accommodate up to eight children per sheet.
Adult Supervision: We require you to bring supervision at a 4 to 1 ratio (students to adults). You will not be charged for the adults in a supervisory capacity but they do need to sign liability forms.
Deposit: We require a $50 deposit for your group regardless of how many sheets you need. This is not refundable if cancelled within a week of the outing. Full refund will be given for snow days regardless of when the cancellation occurs. This deposit can be paid by PayPal or check.
Final Payment: The final payment may also be made ahead of time by PayPal or on the day of the rental by credit card (MC, VISA, AMEX, Discover), check or cash.
What to wear: Wear warm, comfortable clothes (athletic pants and sweat shirts, hat, gloves etc.) it is 38 °F in the arena. Clean shoes are a must! Please have all who are going on the ice carry a clean pair of running shoes with them. Please do not wear them into the club.
Release of Liability Forms: Each person going on the ice must sign a DCC Release of Liability form (in the case of children by their parent/guardian). The form will be emailed to you after the reservation is confirmed and deposit received.
Lunch: If you wanted to stay for, or come early for, carry-in lunch (we don't supply food), you could use the warm room for an additional 30-minutes before or after the event. We charge an additional $25/half hour if you want to stay beyond.
Arrival times: Groups must arrive at least 30 minutes prior to ice time for preparation and off-ice instruction.
