COVID-19 practices

COVID-19 practices for the 2020 - 2021 season

To keep curling going during COVID-19, Curling Canada, along with Curling Alberta, has developed return-to-play guidelines that will maintain the basic concept of the game while introducing safe distancing and improved hygiene practices. For the 2020-2021 season, the BVCC (Indus Curling Club) will be implementing the following practices set forth by Curling Canada and Curling Alberta:

  • Only one sweeper for the throwing team
  • Skips NEVER sweep (neither their rocks or the opponent rocks behind the T line)
  • Players have designated locations where they stand or move to
  • No changing of rocks during the game or touching handles of rocks other than your own
  • No handshakes
  • No scorekeeping, use phone instead
  • No exchanging of coin for flipping. Phone App or Stopwatch Even/Odd is preferred
  • No holding of other player equipment (brooms, stabilizers)
  • Sanitation of rocks before the game
  • Sanitation of measuring sticks when used
  • 2m distancing of all players at all times

In addition, the BVCC (Indus Curling Club) will be making the following changes to help ensure the safety of all players:

On the ice:

  • There will be no water dispensers (bring your own water)
  • There will be no club equipment provided (stabilizers, brooms, sticks, sliders), please bring your own and do not share with others
  • Neighbouring sheets will start at alternate ends (ie. sheets 1 & 3 will begin at the near end and sheet’s 2 & 4 will start at the far end)
  • There will be no on-sheet benches
  • Measurements will be done by only 1 person
  • Sanitizer stations will be available at both ends of each sheet

In the lounge:

  • Our bar, kitchen and lounge area will be open as per AHS guidelines
  • Some tables and chairs will be removed to allow for proper social distancing
  • Locker room will be closed and not accessible for use
  • Proper social distancing signage and markings will be displayed
