Prices before taxes
Play that is competitive, overly aggressive, rough and/or unsportsmanlike such as pushing, shoving, elbowing, shouldering, tripping, hacking, slashing, sliding, tackling, ball blasting, chirping, name calling, threats and intimidation, is prohibited and will not be tolerated by FCSSC. FCSSC IS FIRST-AND-FOREMOST-FOR-FUN. ANY ROUGH OR PHYSICAL PLAY WILL RESULT IN IMMEDIATE EXPULSION FROM THE GAME, THE LEAGUE, THE CLUB AND/OR ALL OF THE ABOVE. All players should go out of their way to avoid contact with other players and/or eliminate actions or behaviours that could jeopardize player safety. If accidental contact occurs it is expected that players will apologize for that contact, ensure everyone is alright and stop the game to seek appropriate help as required. THIS RULE SUPERSEDES ALL OTHERS!
Spirit Points: An integral part of all the sports that the Forest City Sport & Social Club offers. It is based on the primary focus of the FCSSC, which is sportsmanship and to have FUN...NOT on competitive and aggressive sport.
Equipment/Set-Up: FCSSC Game Coordinators or facility staff will provide brooms, sliders and the rocks for each game. Teams are welcome and encouraged to bring their own equipment. All players are responsible for bringing CLEAN indoor shoes. Boots, outdoor shoes, or large chunky shoes are not acceptable – only those with proper footwear will be allowed to play. In addition, FCSSC’s Game coordinator will keep score when possible (ie. Only one game played at a time). If the FCSSC Game Coordinator is unable to keep score, we ask that each team select a player to assist in keeping score.
2. In Game – General Rules, Tiebreakers & Playoffs
Tie Breaker rules (for Playoffs only)
If a playoff game ends in a tie at the end of regulation time, a tie breaker will be played to decide a winner. The tie breaker will be as follows.
A draw to the button will be used to break a tie. The team whose rock is closest to the button will be deemed winner.
Coin toss: The team winning the coin toss will decide whether they will curl first or second.
ii. Each team will decide on 4 players to take part in the tiebreaker. 1 person to throw, 2 sweepers, and 1 "skip" who will direct the shot. The positions should be chosen at the time of the coin toss.
iii. The first team will throw their rock. Both teams (+ a neutral player from another team) should agree on where the rock landed. The rock is then removed from play allowing the second team to shoot at an empty house. Both teams (+ the same neutral player) will agree on where the second team's rock stopped. If possible, a winner will be determined.
iv. If no rocks land in the house, the teams will repeat step "iii" until a winner can be determined. The same order should be maintained throughout the shootout.
Score Reporting: Captains from each team are responsible for reporting or confirming game scores within 48 hours of the completion of the game. Scores can be reported or confirmed via our website at www.fcssc.ca.
Spirit Points: Captains are also responsible for submitting a “Spirit” score for the opposing team each week. This is done when the score is reported or confirmed on the FCSSC website. Spirit points allow you to score your opponent based on your experience playing against them. You can score them based on how fun they were to play against, did they show good sportsmanship, did they follow and know the rules, did they arrive on time etc. All teams should shoot for PERFECT Spirit Points!
Departure: Each week after your game, it is important to leave the rink in a timely manner. Teams could be playing after you and will need to get their game started on time. It is also possible that the facility could be closing upon the completion of your game and all staff and FCSSC members will need to depart the building at that time.
As a COVID safety precaution the Highland Country Club and London Curling Club have chosen to not pursue or severely limit rental of their facilities this Fall to community groups like FCSSC. This has created an extreme shortage of curling ice, and made us eternally grateful to those organizations that have welcomed FCSSC into their space.
HUGE THANK YOU to St. Thomas Curling Club, the play location for this league. (Approx 30min drive from downtown London)
