Club rules: (Policy as adopted by YCA)
We trust that
all participants will respect the intent of this championship which is for
curling clubs to engage their members to participate in a club championship to
declare a club champion to represent the curling club. The event is formulated
for true club championship teams, not past or present elite. The objective is
to support the development of curling across Canada. We keep this objective in
mind as we set our eligibility requirements and on-ice rules, including the CCA
Rules of Curling for General Play. Travelers Canada reserves the right, in its
sole discretion, to exclude any team that violates this spirit and intent as it
pertains to the rules below.
1. The curling
club, represented by the team, must be affiliated with its provincial/territorial
curling association and all dues must be paid in full. The players of any club
champion team must be members in good standing of the affiliated curling club.
Any player can be a member of more than one affiliated curling club, but shall
declare one “home club” for this competition.
2. Each club
will declare a men’s team and women’s team of FOUR (4) players to represent
their club through either their normal league or club championship process, or
through a designated Travelers Curling Club Championship competition within the
club. The declared teams, through either process, MUST have at least three
players who have played together in a sanctioned club league during the current
season. If a replacement fourth player is used, (i.e., a player who did not play
regularly on that team throughout the season) that player MUST play lead.
Players who play exclusively in a major/super league without playing in another
sanctioned club league are ineligible to compete. Clubs that only have mixed or
open leagues (i.e., no men’s and women’s leagues) must contact their
association for approval to participate.
3. Each team
will be allowed only one player who has played in a Juniors’, Men’s (Brier),
Women’s (Scotties) or Seniors’ provincial/territorial event in the current or
previous four curling seasons or participated in a Grand Slam event in the
current or previous four curling seasons (2013-14, 2014-15,
2015-16, 2016-17).* No player on the team can have played in a Canadian Juniors,
Men’s, Women’s or Senior’s Canadian Championship for those years (i.e. national
competitors are excluded as regular or replacement players on the team).
* Exception –
Provinces/Territories with an open provincial/territory event will be permitted
1 player who has placed top 25% in a Juniors’, Men’s (Brier), Women’s
(Scotties) or Seniors’ provincial/territory event in the current or previous 4
curling seasons, or participated in a Grand Slam event in the current or
previous 4 curling seasons
4. Players who compete in the 2017 Travelers Curling
Club Championship national event are ineligible to compete in the 2018 play
5. All games
will be 8 ends with ties being decided by a full extra end.
6. Once a four
person team has been declared a club champion, a maximum of 1
replacement/substitute player from the club can play lead.
7. Each team
must be comprised of 4 players aged 19 or over, as of November 1st, 2015.
Provincial/Territorial curling associations may adopt a more restrictive age
criteria if they choose.
Canada has the sole authority to grant exceptions to these rules in
extraordinary circumstances. Before exercising this discretion, Travelers
Canada will consult with the relevant provincial/territorial curling
association, and will notify the provincial/territorial association in writing
of any decisions regarding exceptions that are granted.
