Q: Does my membership fee cover part of the ice cost for league play?
A: No. Membership fees only cover the cost of insurance required for us to carry by our governing bodies: The GNCC and The USCA.
Q: What other costs are there to running the Charlotte Curling Association?
A: Other costs include: Purchased and rented rock sets, liability and specialty insurance specifically for the rocks, general insurance for all assets, fees to the USCA and GNCC, and curling equipment such as brooms, stabilizers, and sliders.
Q: Is curling more expensive than playing other ice sports?
A: Actually, no. Adult hockey leagues can cost hundreds of dollars per season, not counting the equipment each player must buy for themselves. Figure skating can run into the thousands with private lessons, cost of skates, costumes, etc. Compared to those sports, curling is far less expensive!

A: Right here.
