Membership and league play

Membership in the Lakes Region Curling Association is open to all residents of New Hampshire’s Lakes Region and beyond who are 14 years of age or older. Membership in the LRCA includes:

  • Eligibility to participate in LRCA leagues. (Each league schedule requires a separate registration and fee.)
  • Accident coverage for LRCA events
  • Voting privileges for board elections and eligibility to run for the LRCA board.

The Lakes Region Curling Association organizes open leagues – that is, composed of both men and women of all ages. Residents of New Hampshire’s Lakes Region, with or without prior curling experience, are encouraged to join.

Members may join as individuals, couples, or as part of complete teams consisting of from four to six members. LRCA organizers will undertake to place those without teams into open slots.

Membership begins Sept. 1 and extends through Aug. 31 of the following year.

Participants under the age of 16 are expected to be accompanied by an adult during curling events, and applicants under the age of 18 need the written approval of a parent or guardian.

Joining the LRCA

The LRCA runs two eight-game curling leagues each year. The Fall league runs from mid-October to mid-December, with a break for Thanksgiving, and the Winter league runs from mid-January to mid-March, with a break for Super Bowl Sunday. All matches run for two hours, starting at 5:15 p.m.

Participation in LRCA leagues requires payment of an annual membership fee as well as a separate registration fee for each league. Members may participate in one or both leagues each year.

To participate in the Fall 2017 league, print and complete:

  • An adult waiver form or a youth waiver form (age 14-17)
  • A 2017-2018 membership form ($100 fee, a portion of which may be eligible as a donation on federal tax returns).
  • A Fall 2017 league registration form ($145 fee for eight matches)

The combined membership/registration form is available here.
