We now offer a discounted membership structure for members of other clubs that are interested in additional playing time at the Charlotte Curling Association.
- Must be current league-playing member in your home club
- Membership cost will be based on current CCA Adult membership fee, minus current home club membership fee
- Minimum expense of $175 per person
Q: Does my membership fee cover part of the ice cost for league play?
A: Yes, all memberships are now considered "All You Can Curl" and they include cost of insurance and all League Fees so you can curl in as many leagues as you desire at no additional cost.
Q: What are costs of running the Charlotte Curling Association?
A: We maintain our own facility now, so we have costs such as the lease payment, electric bills and other utilities, and upkeep and maintenance. We also have costs associated with our purchased 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, and so on. Compared to those sports, curling is far less expensive!
Q: Where can I find your Bylaws?
