- Cancellation after the registration deadline – no refund of competition registration fees. Under special circumstances written application for refund can be made to CURLSASK Finance Committee for consideration.
- Only those clubs that are affiliated with CURLSASK may participate in the competition.
- All participants must be player members of CURLSASK. Player Members are defined as persons who are members of CURLSASK Affiliate Member Curling Clubs. All participants must adhere to the CURLSASK Residency Policy.
- Once club teams are determined, each team must register its four players and pay a $140 CURLSASK Registration fee to be eligible to participate in the Region Playdown.
- Clubs must declare their intention to send a Men’s and/or Women’s team to their respective Region playdown by the deadline stated above. The club is responsible to verify the eligibility of their Club Championship Team(s).
- Once a four person team has been declared a club champion, should a player be unable to play due to extenuating circumstances, the team will be permitted 1 (one) eligible substitute/replacement player. The substitute or replacement must meet the age eligibility requirements, be from club and play lead. It is at the discretion of each curling club to determine their replacement/substitute rules throughout their process to declare their Club Champion.
- At the Provincial Championship, the host club shall provide a pool of substitutes. Should a team require a substitute, they may select an eligible substitute as per the rules of the competition.
The Provincial Championship will be a 12 team event with teams qualifying through a Region Playdown system. At the Provincial, a round robin/pool format will be used. Teams will be divided into two (2) pools of six (6) teams. The top two (2) teams from each pool will advance to a page system playoff.
The province is divided into 8 Regions. Region playdowns are the responsibility of the CURLSASK Region Coordinators in consultation with the affiliated clubs within the Region.
The twelve club teams advancing to the Provincial Championship will be as follows:
- The Provincial Host Curling Club will receive one direct berth to the Provincial Championship for their Men’s and Women’s Club Champions.
- The 8 Regions will each declare one club team per Men and Women to advance to each of the Provincial. Three additional regional berths will be award to the Regions with the highest entries. Formula = Number of Teams entered in the Region divided by the total teams entered in the province multiplied by 12 (Which is the Number of Total Berths)
- Regions with no Club Champion entries will not receive representation.
- If 12 or less clubs in the province declare champions, in either men or women division, there will be no regions required and clubs who have declared by the deadline can send one club champion direct to the provincial championship. The draw format for the Provincial will be revised by the Competition Committee accordingly.
- Each region may choose the type of Playdown they prefer (ie: Double knockout, round robin) depending on the number of teams participating.
- All games are played under the CURLSASK and Curling Canada rules. All games will be eight ends and ties broken by extra ends.
