FAQ's

Updated: August 25, 2021

If you have any questions that aren't answered in the FAQ's below, please contact the SPCC office. We would love answer your questions about our club. 

 

Q - What will curling at the SPCC look like for the 2021-22 season? Will everything go back to the way it used to be?

A - At this time, our provincial association (Curling Alberta) is following the advice from the provincial government and advising all clubs to plan for the 2021-22 season to be "normal". We are unable to predict what that means at this time but we hope that it will include 2 sweepers, lockers and socializing in the lounge.

The safety of our members is still the top priority of the SPCC and we will follow all recommendations and guidance from the province, the county and Curling Alberta when it is time to start the season.

And yes, COVID still really sucks.

Q- Will the club require proof of vaccination from club members?

A - While the SPCC strongly encourages all members who able to be vaccinated, to get vaccinated, there will NOT be proof of vaccination regquired to play at the Sherwood Park Curling Club this season.

Q - What happens if there is another wave and the club is required to close again?

A - The SPCC has considered many possibilities when planning for the 2021-22 season. The club’s Registration, Payment and Refund Policy has been revised for the new season and will be finalized at the July 8 Board Meeting.  Once approved, a link to the new policy will be posted here and we strongly encourage all members to read it before registering.

We also hope that all SPCC members who are eligible and able to get vaccinated, get both shots as soon as possible. This is one way we can all help to protect everyone in our community and reduce the risk of another shortened curling season.

Q - I see a $13 Curling Alberta Fee on my registration this season, what is this?

A -  Curling Alberta is our provincial governing curling body and continues to represent all curling clubs in Alberta.  The SPCC is a member and pays a yearly association fee on behalf of our members. In March 2020, Curling Alberta was going to implement an individual $13 membership fee for the 2020 - 2021 curling season however it was postponed due to COVID-19.  All information about the Curling Alberta Membership fee is posted on the Curling Alberta website: Membership Fee Info
The fee breakdown is as follows:

        Personal Insurance                  $  1
       Curling Alberta Affiliation Fee   $ 10
       Curling Canada Affiliation Fee  $  2

If you have paid the Curling Alberta membership fee at another club,
you are not required to pay twice.
If you are also a member at another associated Curling Alberta club,
please contact the SPCC office before paying your SPCC registration fees.


Q - Do all SPCC members need to register online?

A - Yes and this now includes our Senior Mixed League members. All SPCC members must login to their SPCC account, fill out or update their contact information, sign the club waiver and pay the registration fee and/or Curling Alberta fee.

 

Q - Do we have to fill out all of the member profile information?

A - Yes please. This is our means of communication to you. 

If a game is cancelled due to a mechanical problem or situation at the club, we need to be able to reach everyone. If an accident occurs, the SPCC staff need to know how to reach an emergency contact for every member. When the SPCC communicates to our over 1000 members, current email addresses are required so that the newsletter goes out to everyone, not "just the skip".

Additionally, the SPCC seeks grants and sponsorship(s) plus reports to Curling Alberta and Curling Canada The data gathered from the profiles helps provide the current status of our club. Many clubs across Canada haven’t a clue what their membership base is actually.  

We have implemented the Curling Club Manager to assist the SPCC office in managing our members and lower the amount of administrative hours required to do that.

 

Q - Does all my personal information show to other members?

A - The only item to show is your phone number that you select to put down as a means of contact. The phone number allows other members of the SPCC the ability to contact you directly (call or text) should they need to cancel or get ahold of one of the members on the team regarding the game.

Your email address will be hidden and you will receive a notification from a member. They will only be able to see your address if and when you respond to their email to you.

 

Q - Do 5th and 6th players on a team roster have to pay the Curling Alberta fee?

A - 5th and 6th players on a roster will be required to pay the $13 Curling Alberta fee. 5th and 6th players are required to complete the full online sign up process. This includes signing the club waiver(s) and updating their personal profile information including an emergency contact.  


Q - Do the 5th and 6th persons on a roster get charged league fees?

A - The SPCC allows for 6 person rosters. For the team league fee to be marked as PAID IN FULL, 4 members on the roster need to make individual payments. It does not matter which  members make the payment as long as there are 4 in total. Once this is completed, all members on the roster are League Members confirmed and paid in full for the 2020/21 season. The extra 2 players on the roster are only charged the Curling Alberta fee.

Our payment system takes 4 equal payments for the "team" registration. The teams have to decide on how to make payment among themselves for the 5th and 6th, That is up to each team to arrange as there are so many different formulas and schedules for every team and way too much for the SPCC admin to manage. 

All members can see which of their teammates has paid their Hold Your Spot or league registration fees by signing into their SPCC account and selecting  Member Information > My Teams  from the Member Menu on the right hand side of the page. If you want to complete your registration without being charged the full league fee, communicate with your teammates!

Q - Why are teams only allowed 6 people on their rosters?

A - The rosters sizes are only 6 maximum for all leagues. If you have any more, they are not a "league member" of the SPCC and are "sparing" for the team which is perfectly fine.  What it means for your 8 person roster is, in the playoffs, the 2 extras can not skip and are not registered in the system for the membership benefits of scheduling info, standings, practice ice sign up, spare pool and free agents. If the 7th and 8th players want this, they can be added as an Associate membership rate and have these member benefits. Should a team have more than 6 players, please contact the SPCC Office as ALL INDIVIDUALS CURLING AT THE SPCC MUST COMPETE THE SPCC WAIVERS PRIOR TO CURLING. 

 

Q - What is an Associate membership?

A -  An Associate Member of the SPCC has the same benefits as a Member, but is not on a team roster.  This includes access to the Free Agent Listing, the Sub Lists and practice ice. The Associate Membership fee is $150 for the 2021-22 season. Full details can be found here: SPCC Membership

 

Q - What is the Free Agent Listing?

A - When a member is interested in creating a team or joining a team, this area allows the members of the SPCC to see what other interested members are seeking and allows teams and members to connect with each other. Organized match making!

 

Q - What is the difference between the Sub lists and the Free Agent listing?

A - To sub is to be a spare and come out once and awhile for a league. This sub tends to be someone that is not available to play on a full time basis. A Free Agent is someone looking to play on a league team throughout the entire season and become a player on the roster. This free agent is putting it out there to SPCC members that they are available for the full season and is willing to pay for their position as a full time member on the team. 

 

Q - How do I book practice ice?

A - As of Fall 2020, SPCC members are required to book practice ice on-line. Full details and instructions can be found here: Practice Ice. Non-members can book practice ice by calling or emailing the club.

 

Q- When I book practice ice, is the sheet for me only or do I have to share it with others?

A - The SPCC would like to maximize the amount of ice time available to all members. Up to 4 members can book time on any single sheet through our online booking system. Please do your best to share your time on a sheet with any other members who have also booked that sheet.



Q – I want to pay for more than just me (a full team, more than 1 child or my partner), how can I do that online?

A - The system only allows for one person payment. Contact the SPCC office directly at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 780-467-9412 to arrange group payment processing. Please note that as of July 12 ,2021, there will be a $15 fee for registrations that are processed by SPCC administration.

 

Junior Program FAQ’s

Q - Can a parent of more than one child registered in juniors do the enrolment of each child together in one payment?

A - The system is set up for individual registrations only. Group registration is possible but there is a $15 fee as it creates extra complications for the admin staff.

 

Q - My child does not have an email address and I cannot seem to register them as I am a member of SPCC? How do I register them?

A - Each member requires their own email address including children.

Q - Will my child’s information be redirected to the parents email address?

A - The cardholder that made the payment will receive the payment confirmation from the payment processing provider.  The email address attached to the junior's profile will receive the confirmation of registration email.  The SPCC junior program coordinator will be sending an invite to the parent/guardian emails for the TEAM SNAP communications tool.
